It's happened. Again.
Lenovo servers have received the top overall customer satisfaction score for 2016, according to the latest TBR 1H16 Corporate Customer Satisfaction Study: x86-based Servers. This is the eighth out of nine consecutive quarters customers have voted us as the number-one provider of high-quality x86 servers, services and support.
To tally these results, TBR compares several of the leading vendors in the space, evaluating a number of criteria. When it came to looking at the results, Lenovo had the highest rolling six-month mean satisfaction scores for nearly every attribute -- including virtualization and scalability capabilities.
Customers ranked performance, ongoing hardware reliability, initial hardware quality, virtualization, efficiency and scalability, total cost of ownership, product design/features, replacement part availability and purchase price/acquisition cost as the most critical attributes in a server vendor. Not only did Lenovo servers dominate the competition in all of these aspects; they showed increased satisfaction scores, consistently, year-over-year. According to the survey results, customers seek vendors that provide highly reliable hardware, along with services and support to facilitate continuous uptime.
And numbers don't lie. A few key statistics from the survey are:
- 92.1% - the willingness of customers to buy our products again.
- 6.3%. The increase in management capabilities seen once our servers were installed.
- 84.6. The proprietary "customer satisfaction index score" given by TBR to Lenovo. It was the highest, by nearly ten points, out of the three leading, global server vendors.
