CHICAGO, April 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- National Education, a privately held student loan servicer in Chicago, received high praise after surveying its 40,000 + borrower population, an encouraging sign these days with so much negative attention on student loan servicers.
The survey focused on borrower satisfaction regarding website design and usability, phone interaction, and staff professionalism. Among the key findings:
- 90% of borrowers feel the National Education website is easy to navigate, has helpful and relevant information, and resolves borrower inquiries.
- 80% + of borrowers are satisfied with call wait time and feel their concerns are resolved the first time they call.
- 90% of borrowers feel the National Education staff is courteous, professional, and knowledgeable.
- In general, National Education received more compliments than complaints, a rarity in most survey formats.
In direct response to customer feedback, National Education quickly redesigned key portions of its website to improve access to the most often-used pages. Students and parents now have faster access to exactly what they want. In the short term, National Education plans to incorporate more mobile-friendly functionality of its website, add more financial literacy content, and improve its online tools for borrowers.
"We are very encouraged by these findings," says Matt Scotty, President of National Education. Mr. Scotty continued, "Too often customers are dissatisfied with their student loan experience. These results, which are a testament to the knowledge and hard work of our employees, conform to our mission to set the standard for superior service in our industry."
National Education boasts a call wait time of less than half a minute, and less than one half of one percent of phone calls go unanswered. National Education also maintains a dedicated customer service staff and does not use an automated phone system. In addition, the default rate on National Education's federal and private loan portfolios consistently perform better than industry average.
