Our company sends out surveys through SmileBack with every ticket that is closed through ConnectWise Manage. I like how it is a real time indication of how we are doing and what needs to be addressed. I also like the simplicity of it for our clients. They can be more detailed if they prefer.
  • So far we haven't had any problems.
It is well suited for our clients at schools. It is easy to use and only takes a minute to select the proper response. It is well suited for our other clients as well since it is so simple. We appreciate the feedback and strive to see only smiling faces.

We have been using this CSAT tool for nearly 3 years. We went from having .1% feedback to nearly 20% feedback. The reports and insight it provides are invaluable during customer business reviews.
  • It's simple.
  • It works.
  • Good reporting.
  • None that I can think of now.
I have recommended this product on several occasions. It's quite useful in many applications.

We use SmileBack to get feedback on our technicians directly from the users that they support. This allows us to stay current on the overall feeling of our services at each of our clients. It also has presented us with new opportunities to measure our technician's success and to reward them when they exceed our benchmarks.
  • Ease of use for end-users to provide feedback.
  • Ease of use for reporting.
  • Great dashboard for internal users.
  • An internal rewards system for techs to rate each other.
  • Mobile app.
Great for providing feedback on a ticket by ticket basis directly from our end users. We use it internally on overhead displays to let the techs see where they are compared to all of our other technicians. The area it is lacking is getting direct feedback from client executives or decision-makers.

We use SmileBack to gauge customer satisfaction on a service ticket basis and it is part of our weekly/monthly/quarterly scorecard metrics and we monitor trends and follow up on responses that are neutral or negative. It provides us with an easy analysis of our day to day service and customer happiness.
  • Charts and graphs that make it easy for us to share our results internally and also externally when meeting with clients and potential clients.
  • SmileBack provides a fun set of metrics that our techs can be proud of -- by measuring customer satisfaction and seeing these surveys (especially those with comments) - it really provides them with satisfaction of a job well done!
  • SmileBack makes it easy to search and filter by the client or by tech (agent) or date range.
  • One thing we'd love to see SmileBack add to their list of date filtering is a rolling 12 months option.
SmileBack is especially useful for service providers of many fields (it works well for our field of IT support). Scenarios, where it would be less appropriate, would be for getting a feel for a specific member of the client's staff (i.e. C-Level staff -- if they don't fill the surveys out or request support, SmileBack would not show us how they feel towards us as a company).

It is used to get customer feedback on support tickets. Before SmileBack, we were using email replies for follow up with less than 10% feedback. With SmileBack, we are gett more than 30% feedback. It is much easier for customers to reply and leave a quick comment on service.
  • Simple choices.
  • Easy to use.
  • It allows for quick feedback.
  • Reports and quick view of comments are great.
  • None at this time.
SmileBack offered for all customers upon closing of a ticket.

At Orchestra Software, we utilize SmileBack to gather customer satisfaction data once we've resolved a support ticket via Zendesk. Currently, our Customer Support department is the only team to be using SmileBack, and thus far we've been loving it! SmileBack has allowed us to gather feedback more quickly, simply and with less interruption to our busy customers.
  • SmileBack is fun! Who doesn't love to click a smiley face as a way to describe their experience? It brings more emotion into the mix, which in turn has garnered better and more robust customer responses.
  • SmileBack is simple! Step 1: Click a face (smiley | neutral | sad) Step 2: Write a brief description of experience (optional) Step 3: Submit!
  • SmileBack provides instant feedback! As a leader, it's important for me to be on top of the pulse of our business and customers. SmileBack sends me notifications when a customer leaves our team a note. I can immediately address concerns if I need to, and more importantly can pass on kudos right away! Talk about a mood booster!
  • Honestly, I can't find any room for improvement with SmileBack at this time. For what it is designed to do, it is simple, fast and convenient. Just what we were looking for so our customers can drop us a note and get back to making great beer!
SmileBack is well suited to gather customer feedback at the end of a process or project. Whether it's the final step before closing out a project, at the end of various stages or once a ticket is solved, it allows internal teams to find out what they did well, if a customer felt neutral about the service provided, or if there is room for improvement. In any data-driven company, SmileBack is a key tool to leverage for reporting and department KPIs.

We use SmileBack's integration with ConnectWise to request feedback from service desk customers. As soon as a technician closes out a ticket that user is asked to review their experience. It's addressing any lack of completion or poor customer service issues. It allows us to establish a trend and establish organization-wide goals for customer satisfaction.
  • Intuitive user interface
  • Ease of integration
  • Rapid report generation
  • I'd like to have more customization options for the survey
  • I'd like to see more than three options.
  • Five smiley faces would be great.
  • For customer relationship management software like ConnectWise where you would like to gauge customer satisfaction with interaction.
  • Any help desk scenario where you want the customer to easily be able to rate performance.

We use SmileBack surveys through our ticketing system (ConnectWise Manage). Everytime our helpdesk closes a ticket, an e-mail is sent to the ticket contact and they can select from the 3 smiley faces and leave comments. We get notified if the client is unhappy. Also, this integrates with BrightGauge so that we can see the survey results along with other service metrics important to us. Not only does our helpdesk use this to gauge feedback but the whole company sees this on our displays and management loves it! Because of the integration of SmileBack into BrightGauge, we get even more visibility into our customers' feedback!
  • Integration into other business software
  • Ease of use
  • Quick setup
  • Set it and forget it
  • Lightening fast support!
  • I would really like to be able to expand to 5 options. I've had some clients I resell this to and they requested it. Would be nice as an option.
SmileBack is suited for any situation where you are wanting to gauge your client base and ask for feedback unbiased! Any customer service-oriented business could use a tool like this!

SmileBack is our company's primary customer feedback tool, we use this to provide KPI measurements and customer satisfaction results outside of our business relationship management. Our goal with SmileBack was to Identify customers that were unhappy and required a little more love, at the same time this data allows me to incentivise my staff.
  • Simple to Implement
  • Easy to administrate
  • Plugs into Bright-gauge, so I can have all my stats in the one location
  • Rather than a con, a suggestion or feature, I would like to see is more controls over how the system issues surveys.
SmileBack is a sufficient solution for gaining an insight as to how the customer perceives our business. It was not a surprise to me when we had a customer move to another MSP after a few months of poor feedback scores. We can also easily see which customers rate us the highest and would rate our business highly.

We use the software to measure the satisfaction our clients have with our services. We have increased the level of feedback we receive immensely. By integrating with our ticketing system (ConnectWise) we are able to keep the record of the feedback with the ticket, along with any follow-up work or conversations.
  • The simplicity of the feedback mechanism increases the chance of our clients leaving it, which gives us more chance to improve the service we provide.
  • The integration with ConnectWise links it all together so we can see the full record, the feedback, and any actions taken after it was recieved.
  • Not a big fan of the most recent interface redesign
Great for MSPs looking for a way to find out what their clients think of them, and to use the feedback to improve the services provided.

After 10 years using a question and answer surveying system with a response time of less than 1% we decided to move to SmileBack and the day after our implementation we started receiving around 20% feedback. Our organisation started reaping the benefits of surveying from day one!
  • Increases response on surveys instantly and constantly
  • Ease of Use for customers
  • Easy to understand dashboard and fully integrated
  • What improvements are planned need to be communicated more.
Due to the amazing response from clients, we recommend SmileBack - easy to use and easy to integrate.

SmileBack is used by our support team to collect and analyse satisfaction data. We originally implemented it to gain insight into how our support team was doing not just in raw ticket numbers and sales but in how satisfied our customers were.

This means we can address issues quickly as clients are typically quicker to use the review system than send an email, as I think it is a lot easier than trying to find the correct escalation path.
  • Review collection: Most of our clients, once aware of the system submit a fair number of responses to the surveys sent out
  • Analytics: We can clearly see using the inbuilt tools trends of clients that are unhappy / happy
  • Only issue would be the view of who actually worked on a ticket, but this is more an issue of internal process that something that the smileback app would necessarily solve.
MSPs like ourselves would benefit from the insight provided. Implementation was fairly straightforward.

SmileBack is being used to assess the effectiveness of our support departments interactions with our clients. It allows immediate feedback to come to my team for excellence in support and for clients to provide negative feedback in a way that can be addressed immediately.
  • SmileBack customer support and implementation are fantastic! They are extremely responsive and pleasant to work with.
  • Providing a simplified way for a client/customer to respond regarding the effectiveness and efficiency of our support or alert us of any issues.
  • The ease of accessing data/reports to compare client-by-client, time periods, and/or technicians within our company.
  • In the review area it is not possible to select a data range and save it - it must be selected each time. For example, I want to see 'this month' only when I initially open it - this must be chosen at each log in. Saved ranges by user would be awesome!
SmileBack is well suited for any industry or business that is looking to improve their customer support.

We use SmileBack attached to our ticketing system in order to track our client satisfaction. When a ticket is closed our clients are given the opportunity to rate the experience. The survey itself is pretty straight forward and I find people are more willing to answer a survey with only 3 options over a numerical rating system. We are able to quickly reach out to clients and address any concerns in the rare instances we receive a neutral or negative review so we can work on maintaining a strong positive connection to our clients. We are able to combine the ratings as well with our performance reviews and employee incentives.
  • Simple and straight forward survey questions
  • Integration with ConnectWise
  • Provides quick updates when responses are posted
  • Nothing I can think of
Anytime you are looking to track performance and client satisfaction

SmileBack is used throughout our entire company.

We are allowing our customers to easily rate their experience, and before SmileBack it was a laborious task and we got very few responses. With SmileBack our response rate is up 43%!
  • How easy it is for customers to give feedback, it is really amazing!
  • Easy to understand.
  • Very easy to set up.
  • Clean emails that get sent out.
  • Easy to make back-end changes.
  • I would love to be able to tweak the widget design more easily.
  • Real-time widget reporting.

SmileBack is used to get clients' feedback on the support tickets we have with them.
  • SmileBack has significantly increased the amount of feedback we recieive
  • SmileBack integrates into multiple tools we use
  • Smileback was very easy to roll out
  • Nitpicking here, but reporting could be a bit better.
We offer support for dozens of different companies and they put in tickets for that support. A SmileBack option is on every single ticket we close.

We are currently using SmileBack to track and measure CSAT scores across our entire company for our Service group (consisting of IT, Facilities and EH&S). We are using it to determine areas of improvement for our Services group.
  • SmileBack has a very good, easy to use dashboard. Their reporting is simple and effective.
  • I particularly like how easy it is to see user comments and response to the survey's being sent.
  • The users really like how quick and easy it is to provide direct feedback without complicated response mechanism or lengthy questions.
  • I would like to see a mobile app developed soon allowing managers and users of the tool be able to have access to the management portal.
SmileBack is a great tool for measuring CSAT scores and easily integrates with ITSM tools.

We use SmileBack to measure customer satisfaction of tickets we work through different tiers and departments within our company. We are improving customer satisfaction by taking action on their reviews. We improve our employees through coaching on customer responses and we strengthen our relationships with our customers by listening to what makes them happy and what doesn't.
  • It integrates into ConnectWise Manage.
  • It alerts us with each new review.
  • Reporting from it is easy.
  • Some of the filters remain the same when revisiting the site and some have to be changed.
  • You have to update the date range each time.
  • You have to add the agents each time.
SmileBack is well suited for quick feedback on specific tickets or transactions. It is less appropriate for an overall view of a company.

About SmileBack

SmileBack helps its users easily gather feedback after every single support interaction through their help desks. The product also helps companies track trends, respond to customers based on all kinds of triggers, and create deep, meaningful reports.

It’s hard to get people to rate their customer service interactions; response rates are usually a dismal 5% or so. SmileBack removed all the pains to provide feedback, with a very clear one-click on a smiley face, which then prompts the user for a short comment. On average, the vendor says its customers get a 39.6% response rate.

This means support staff knows where they stand and tend to get more motivated than before thanks to a steady stream of positive feedback.

The vendor aims to offer ridiculously simple product design and a stable platform that just doesn’t break. The company has 650 customers.
