Dear Valued Customer:
As part of our on-going commitment to customer success, PTC strives to continuously improve processes to ensure that we deliver products, services and technical support that are of the highest quality. To help us achieve our goal we have implemented a number of surveys and feedback mechanisms through which we can assess, measure, and drive quality improvements. We look forward to enhanced relationships with our customers as the initiatives we implement make it easier to do business with PTC.
Independent Project Quality Assessment (IPQA)
The Independent Project Quality Assessment (IPQA) is an interview-based assessment of PTC sales, services, and product quality. The assessment is focused on the customer’s Project Manager, and the interview is conducted once the implementation is complete. PTC uses the results of the IPQA to understand the customer's satisfaction with a completed project. Results are investigated in root cause meetings, which in turn drive corrective actions to improve project quality going forward.
Customer Satisfaction Survey
The Customer Satisfaction Survey is designed to measure end-user satisfaction with PTC products and technical support services. Twenty-five percent of PTC customers are invited to complete the survey each quarter via Satmetrix, our online survey partner. The results of this survey are used to drive improvement initiatives in product development and all our customer facing organizations.
The Transactional Survey measures the experience of the end-user interaction with Technical Support through their technical requests. The 20% response rate shows how important this mechanism is for our customer to provide feedback on their recent experience. Transactional Surveys provide data which can be linked to operational metrics to drive process improvement of our ISO 9000 Certified TS organization.

- "It seems that PTC is making sincere and concerted efforts to solve customer complaints and to move to a truly customer-centric model for running its business. For those of us who rely on PTC technology, this is a welcome change and we can only encourage its continuance."
