About the MarketTools ACE Awards
Established in 2005, the MarketTools ACE Awards program recognizes outstanding achievement in customer, employee and partner satisfaction. To be eligible for a 2011 MarketTools ACE Award, clients must have conducted one or more surveys to assess customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, or partner satisfaction between October 1, 2009 and September 30, 2010, and completed an application form. Qualifying performance is determined by a combination of customer satisfaction mean scores and top-box rating percentages maintained during at least a 6-month period during the qualifying period. The customer feedback on which awards are based must be representative of the entire business, or qualifying business unit or business segment, to which the award applies. MarketTools ensures that the survey processes on which metrics are based are rigorous, defensible and repeatable. Surveys may use either a census of customers or representative sampling with specified minimum confidence levels and maximum margins of error.
