About the Print Buyer Satisfaction Index (PBSI)

Each quarter thousands of print buyer opinions are gathered to measure their satisfactionwith recent performance of printers who serve them. The benchmark is a compilation of all feedback gathered for printers participating in CustomerPulse, a customer feedback service offered through Survey Advantage. The feedback is published to help participating printers benchmark performance and react quickly to customer feedback. Results are segmented by brand, size, and other classifications. The PBSI is the most comprehensive measure of customer loyalty and performance available in the industry.
