How Did We Rank?
 
As part of our ongoing effort to improve our products and services, Safety Reports recently surveyed our subscribers for feedback on what we're doing right and where we can improve.

Overall, the responses were very positive as reflected in our scores. However, the scores also leave room for improvement which will be our focus in 2021!

First and foremost, our Customer Service ranks high. We scored a 4.9 out of 5 in this important category.

We've always hung our hat on customer service and the survey results prove it!  Coincidentally, we also scored a 4.9 out of 5 on Capterra, an independent site used by many businesses to evaluate software solutions.

With regards to Ease of Use, we scored a 4.6 out of 5.  There's obvisouly room for improvement in this area, especially with regards to our Administrative site. We scored much higher on our individual apps, but navigating the administrative site is not as intuitive. In addition to streamlining some of the admin functions, we'll also work on adding tutorials, both print and video, to improve in this area in 2021.

We scored a 4.5 in Functionality.
Based on responses, it appears one of our biggest opportunities for improvement is adding year-over-year analytics. We feel we do a good job delivering analytics over a 12-month period, but developing reports that provide year-over-year trends will be a focus in 2021.

We'd also like to point out that on occasion, when a customer takes time to ask if our app can meet a specific need, in most cases, we find that it already does. We just simpley needed to make a few changes to their admin "settings". So, please be sure to reach out to your Support Rep if you feel there's any areas where you'd like to see improved functionality. 

Value for Money is an important criteria and we scored a 4.6 out of 5 in this category. 
In 2020 we added "Virtual Safety Reports" to our Inspection App, the ability to conduct Vehicle Incident Reports, along with Property and GL to our Incident App, we've added new checklists and countless other improvements to the system.  And, we'll continue to work hard in 2021 to improve this score. 
 
In closing, thank you to everyone who responded to our survey and thanks to all our valued customers who have supported us over the years!

We wish you all a safe and happy New Year and look forward to partnering with you in 2021!
