2016 Annual CRO Report

Nice Insight’s Top Companies lists are comprised of the highest scoring companies, as rated by buyers of outsourced services, with respect to customer perception within each category.

Customer perception describes how a current buyer or prospect rates a company based on the information they have been exposed to — from marketing materials to word-of-mouth influence, as well as experience with the company. Nice Insight uses six key drivers of outsourcing — quality, reliability, productivity, affordability, innovation and regulatory history — to measure customer perception; the number listed is the average of the six individual scores, down to the decimal point.
