The Athlete’s Foot has won Roy Morgan’s Shoe Store of the Month award for November 2019, with a customer satisfaction rating of 84%. The Athlete’s Foot has won seven straight monthly satisfaction awards since winning its first award for 2019 in May.

Its satisfaction rating of 84% is only down 2% compared with three years ago. This is in contrast to Williams on 74%, which has decreased 10% over the same period, and Spendless Shoes on 71%, dropping 16%. The customer satisfaction ratings have been taken from the Roy Morgan Single Source survey, compiled by in-depth face-to-face interviews with over 50,000 Australians each year in their homes.

Boost Mobile is the winner of Roy Morgan’s Mobile Phone Service Provider of the Month Award for October 2019, with a customer satisfaction rating of 89%.

Powershop’s high satisfaction rating means customers less likely to switch power provider

Powershop has won the Roy Morgan Electricity Provider of the Month Award for October 2019, with a customer satisfaction rating of 80%. It was followed by Momentum Energy (73%), Red Energy (73%), Lumo Energy (69%) and Alinta Energy (69%). Powershop’s leading rating means its customers are less likely to switch to a competitor. Grouping electricity customers into ‘satisfied’ and ‘dissatisfied’ shows clear differences in the likelihood of them switching providers. A much larger proportion of dissatisfied customers (24%) said they were likely to switch providers compared with satisfied customers (7.5%), while more of the satisfied customers (73%) said they were unlikely to switch than dissatisfied customers (58.3%). Roy Morgan CEO Michele Levine says Powershop’s satisfaction rating is a strong result, given the ongoing political and media attention surrounding electricity providers. These customer satisfaction ratings have been drawn from the Roy Morgan Single Source survey, derived from in-depth face-to-face interviews with over 1,000 Australians each week in their homes.

Wealthier Australians are less satisfied with their bank

Original article by Roy Morgan
Market Research Update – Page: Online : 20-Nov-19

Satisfaction levels with the banking industry are related to an individual’s level of wealth, new research from Roy Morgan shows – with the wealthiest 30% of Australians less likely to be satisfied with their banking relationships (75.4%) than the middle 40% (80.1%) or the bottom 30% (84.7%). The wealth-linked difference in banking satisfaction levels has grown more extreme over time. In 2013 the satisfaction level of the wealthiest Australians was 80.8% and that of the poorest Australians was 82.8%, a gap of just 2%. This figure has more than quadrupled to 9.3%. Six years ago there was no significant difference between the satisfaction of the middle 40% and that of the wealthiest 30%, but these levels have also grown steadily apart, opening up a gap of 4.6%. These insights come from Australia’s most extensive, longest study of consumer financial behaviour. Running continuously for more than 20 years, it involves over 50,000 in-depth, face-to-face interviews in respondents’ homes each year.
