Upshot User Survey - The Results Are In

Earlier this year we conducted the annual Upshot User Satisfaction Survey which was sent to just under 3,000 individuals. Also, for the very first time, we conducted an Organisation Impact Survey, undertaken with the lead contact(s) from each organisation . . . thanks to all that took the time to respond!

These surveys are an incredibly important piece of feedback for us as an organisation. As the day-to-day users of the system your feedback will enable us to develop and improve our service.
Please see a summary of the results below.
 

User Survey

The fifth annual User Survey was sent to users in January 2021.

We were incredibly proud of the user feedback around our support. Over 97% of users that had contacted our support channels in the previous 12 months saying the experience had either been ‘Very Positive’ or ‘Positive’.

Additional comments around support included:

‘Our Upshot contact is fantastic - knowledgeable, approachable, he connects us to others, an invaluable source. He is really taking our Upshot potential to a new level.’
