We published the 2015 Temkin Experience Ratings, the most comprehensive benchmark of customer experience. In the fifth year of the Ratings, we analyze feedback from 10,000 U.S. consumers to rate 293 organizations across 20 industries (we added utilities this year). Here’s the executive summary:
2015 marks the fifth year of the Temkin Experience Ratings, and this year, supermarkets dominated the ratings. Publix earned the top spot, closely followed by Aldi and H-E-B. In addition to earning the top three positions, supermarkets also took five of the top 12 spots. Retailers also performed well, with both PetSmart and Amazon.com making it into the top seven. At the other end of the spectrum, Coventry Health Care, Fox Rent A Car, Comcast, and Fujitsu earned the lowest ratings. To generate the Temkin Experience Ratings, we asked 10,000 U.S. consumers to rate their recent interactions with 293 companies across 20 industries and then evaluated their experiences across three dimensions: success, effort, and emotion. On an industry level, supermarket chains, fast food chains, retailers, parcel delivery services, and banks all earned “good” ratings on average, whereas Internet service providers, TV service providers, and health plans received “poor” ratings on average. We also compared individual companies to their industry averages and found that TriCare and Amazon outperformed their industry peers by the highest margin, while Fox Rent A Car and Ramada Inn fell the furthest below their industry average. Between 2014 and 2015, only five industries improved and 14 declined. Residence Inn, US Cellular, and JetBlue Airlines improved the most over the previous year, while Subaru dealers, TD Ameritrade, and Buick dealers declined the most.
