Customer Experience Index
Discover what your patients really think

The Customer Experience Index is a Guild member-only service that has been designed to provide pharmacy owners with an insight into what their customers think about their business.

The Customer Experience Index is a survey conducted by a Guild visitor in your pharmacy and comprises of five phases. The first three phases are conducted in the pharmacy over a two hour time period.

  1. Pharmacy appearance and service snapshot – this focuses on the pharmacy appearance from your customers’ eyes.
  2. Customer experience snapshot – the Guild visitor will survey up to 10 customers in the pharmacy to ascertain their customer satisfaction, net promoter score, awareness of professional services offered in the pharmacy and key areas that customers identify that may enhance their community pharmacy experience.
  3. Feedback – immediate verbal feedback is provided highlighting the results from phase one and two above. The feedback session is also complemented by referral to Guild Member services and resources applicable to your pharmacy.
  4. Written report – a formal report is provided following the visit. It is anticipated as the Customer Experience Index program matures and a greater data source is obtained, a de-identified benchmarked data analysis will also be provided as a resource.
  5. Pharmacy quality improvement activity – the Guild visitor will refer pharmacies to services, support and opportunities offered by the Guild to enhance the customer experience in the pharmacy.
