Client Survey 2021 Results Review Thumbnail


Earlier this year we invited GOSS clients to take part in our annual GOSS Client Survey. Each year, the results and opinions expressed in this survey help provide us with key information we use to develop and improve the products, services and support we provide. 


The survey was open to all GOSS clients to take part and aims to find out how our clients rate us across various aspects of the interaction they have with us. This includes such aspects as the products and services we offer, the customer service they receive from us and how they view us as a software provider within the UK Public Sector online and digital technology market.


Taking place over the summer, the survey was broken down into sections, which covered the following... the GOSS Digital Platform, our customer service, our reputation, and GOSS in general. We also added, in light of COVID-19, a new section for 2021, which asked questions about how clients have rated us during the pandemic.


GOSS Platform

In this section clients were asked to answer questions about their GOSS Digital Platform. Question in this section, gave insight into whether the Platform met clients' needs and its overall ease of use. Overall clients responded with very positive answers. All 100% of participants taking part in the survey stated that their experience with the GOSS Digital Platform was either positive or very positive. Year on year, this result had increased by 10%. And when it came to if the Platform meets clients' needs, 94% agree that this was the case, up by 8% on 2020's results.

With the pandemic having had a significant effect on our clients' delivery of public online and digital services, this year we added a new section to help us understand how clients feel we have supported them during these times. When clients were asked about how they'd like to interact with across various meetings and events going forward, most clients now have a preference to meet with us online as opposed to in-person. This includes meetings such as account manager and project meetings, and also includes events such as the GOSS User Group.

During the pandemic clients have been very impressed with the how we have supported them and handled their projects, in a time of high demand for online and digital services from clients' customers. When asked to rate how our level of service during this time, 100% of clients said they found it to be either good or very good.
