AutoIndex

The AutoIndex study is considered a unique and valuable supplement to the types of Customer Satisfaction surveys that we perform ourselves.
I have personally worked with Loyalty Group in both my current and my previous job (President, Toyota Norway) and to sum it up, I am happy to recommend both Loyalty Group and the AutoIndex study to other NSC’s.

– Alar Metsson, President, Toyota Denmark A/S (2023)

At Lexus we see great value in the detailed market insight that AutoIndex gives us.
Both the results of the survey and the professional competence of the Loyalty Group consultants are highly valued by both us and our dealers.
Results and the accompanying advisory from Loyalty Group are used in both strategy development, marketing and dealer development.

– Jan Christian Holm, General Manager, Lexus Norway (2023)

At Mindline, we apply AutoIndex on all the educations and pieces of training where they are available to us from the NSC. Our experience from the training where it is used versus where it is not, is that there is a clear effect on the participants’ understanding of why there is a need to develop and improve the customer experience.

– Jørgen Faddersbøl, CEO, Mindline (2022)

For Toyota Denmark, Loyalty Group’s annual AutoIndex results are probably the most important supplement to customer satisfaction analyzes and VoC.
