NMMA Announces 2015 Marine Industry Customer Satisfaction Index Awards – Quimby's Cruising Guide

NMMA Announces 2015 Marine Industry Customer Satisfaction Index Awards

The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) announced 46 recipients of the 2015 Marine Industry Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) Awards for excellence in customer satisfaction during the annual Industry Breakfast at the 2016 Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show in Miami.

The Marine Industry CSI Awards honor manufacturers who actively measure customer satisfaction and pursue continuous improvement to better serve the customer. Award recipients achieved and maintained an independently-measured standard of excellence of 90 percent or higher in customer satisfaction over the past program year, based on information provided by customers purchasing a new boat or engine during the period between April 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015. The 2015 announcement also introduced Jet Boats as a new category for award recognition.

Participating manufacturers must survey all new boat buyers during this period. For this reporting period, the program surveyed nearly 67,000 customers.

“Measuring our customer’s satisfaction lets us know more about what they are thinking, what they are saying and allows us to learn and adapt, ultimately reaching a point where we have truly earned their praise,” said Robert Newsome, vice president of engineering standards for NMMA. “We congratulate these 46 manufacturers for their commitment to their customers and creating exceptional boat ownership experiences.”
