The benchmark is a compilation of all feedback gathered from over 700 printers participating in CustomerPulse – SurveyAdvantage’s award-winning online service that enables local businesses like printers and sign-makers to react quickly to customer complaints and opportunities, and automatically drive 5-star reviews to Google, Facebook and their website.  The PBSI™ is the most comprehensive measure of print buyer loyalty available in the graphics industry.

To qualify, there must be customer satisfaction data for each of the three months of the quarter in which the award is calculated and there must be no fewer than 15 respondents for the quarter.  An overall winner is chosen by calculating the percentage of customers who indicated they were very likely to recommend the printer.  To break any ties, a percentage is calculated from those who chose to leave a comment.

The vision of the PBSI™ is to improve industry performance through reliable real-time buyer satisfaction benchmarking.
