What type of business are you?

TruRating for your business

Most businesses want to hear from lots of their paying customers, but don’t have the right tools. Most consumers want to feed back, but aren't given a convenient way, at the right time.

We believe that for feedback to be simple and honest for both customers and businesses, it should fit seamlessly into the overall customer experience. And so we've utilised a tool nearly every business already owns and that every paying customer will come into contact with at the point of purchase - the payment terminal.

Feedback like never before...

TruRating is the first service to collect accurate customer feedback from the majority of your consumers when they pay. By using the existing payment terminals in your business to ask each customer a single question, TruRating enables you to gather representative consumer ratings affordably and simply. Customers can anonymously rate an aspect of their experience from 0-9 (where 0 is the worst, and 9 is the best), with a single keystroke. All of your ratings are automatically gathered and collated daily in an easy-to-use analytics suite, so that you can use this insight to make business decisions quickly with confidence.

Get the customer feedback you need,

Most businesses hear from fewer than 1% of their customers, which means they often don’t trust the insight they do receive. We’ve found that most consumers are happy to feed back with TruRating and we’re seeing an average of 88%* giving their rating when asked.

...to make the changes that matter.

Such a high and accurate response rate means you can finally start getting customer feedback you can trust - and have the confidence to actually start making changes based on that insight.

It can be hard to appreciate the full impact of the changes you make day to day, whether that’s a new staff member, a change in the menu, or just a slight increase in prices. With TruRating, you can collect opinions on every part of your business, even asking custom questions to get insight on specific areas of the customer experience you offer that are unique to you.

You'll be able to:

  • link customer sentiment to spend and even basket-level data (POS integration required)
  • track your ratings at different times of the day and over periods of time
  • compare your ratings against anonymous competitors
  • benchmark the performance of individual branches against each other
  • monitor the impact that promotions, changes in operations, staff members, loyalty membership and even payment method all have on levels of satisfaction
  • create new opportunities and cost savings.

Putting it into context.

Perhaps one of your major competitors is running a sales event for a certain product range and you're considering following suit so as not to lose business to them. You could run the sale in just one of your stores and assess the results using TruRating. Is the impact of the sale on your core customer experience metrics and revenue strong enough to warrant rolling it out across all stores? Or does your data show that you're better off focusing on improving your service scores to bring in higher revenues and win business over your competitors?

Or maybe you want to introduce a new type of coffee bean for your coffee shop. The cost price is higher than your previous one, so you’ve had to pass the additional expense onto your customers. Using your dashboard you’ll be able to see if the new coffee bean is worth it, or if it brings down your ratings for value and experience metrics across the board. Essentially, it can help you quickly identify when something in your business isn’t working - saving you a lot of money and stopping you losing customers.

Ratings collection.

  • The terminal application: once activated, 5 core customer experience questions will begin appearing on rotation on your terminals during payment.
  • Customisation: You can learn more about what your customers think by adding your own questions via your online account.
  • POS Integration: our team can work with you to link TruRating to your till systems, enabling you to link customer sentiment to loyalty information and basket data. If linked to your POS systems, the TruRating question can be triggered to appear on the terminal as soon as the customer arrives at the till - capturing ratings from customers paying via any method and taking advantage of the dwell time. Contact us to get started with TruRating.
