Get Insights Into the Quality of Your
Customer Service


QoS metrics help you assess the quality of services you provide through LibAnswers - for both tickets and chats.

Enable the QoS tool to automatically send a follow-up user satisfaction survey to users after their LibAnswers ticket or chat is closed. Patrons will only ever receive one follow-up satisfaction survey per ticket.


  • the rating scale used. Subscribers to the NPS® Tool can use one of their NPS® surveys.
  • the survey start & end time.
  • introductory text and rating labels.
  • the % of closed tickets that will receive a survey.
  • whether LibAnswers account holders can view user feedback in their tickets.
  • how often a user will receive a survey, independent of the number of tickets submitted.
  • an email opt-out list for users who don't want to receive your survey.

More Than Just User Feedback

In addition to user satisfaction data, QoS metrics also gathers:

  • Total Number of Replies - Total number of replies sent by a LibAnswers user to the patron.

Chat Turnaround Statistics:

  • Wait Time to Response - How long patrons waited before their chats were claimed by an operator.
  • Chat Duration - Number of chats by duration, in minutes.
