Net Promoter Score®, or NPS®, is an important benchmark companies use to evaluate and improve on their customer experience and loyalty.

It is different than a customer satisfaction score in that it measures the overall perception clients have rather than single transactions.

NPS IN 2022

According to professional survey firm ClearlyRated, in 2022 accounting clients reported an overall benchmark NPS of 39% (their survey sample focused on accounting clients in the U.S. and Canada).  Bland is very proud that, according to surveys conducted with our clients, our NPS is 100.

Learn About NPS

  • How is NPS Calculated?

    Survey our clients, asking them “On a scale of 0 to 10, how likely are you to recommend to a colleague or friend?”

    Categorize responses according to their score: 0-6 are Detractors, 7-8 are Passives, and 9-10 are Promoters.

    Disregarding the Passives, subtract the percentage of Detractor responses from the percentage of Promoter responses to determine your Net Promoter Score. This score can range from -100 to 100.

  • What do the NPS Categories Mean?

    Promoters: Customers who answer the question with 9-10 are enthusiastic, loyal customers who will tell their friends about your business and bring in new customers.

    Passives: Customers who answer the question with 7-8 are indifferent and could become promoters — or they could switch to your competition.

    Detractors: Customers who answer the question with 0-6 are unhappy customers, and not only are you at risk of losing them, they could do damage to your brand by sharing their bad experiences with other people.

  • Why is NPS Important?

    First, it measures client loyalty, an important component in establishing a long-term partner. Second, it helps us identify ways we can improve our client experience.
