To all our customers—we want to say a big thank you! Your thoughts, ideas and suggestions play a major role in helping us discover new opportunities to improve our identity solutions. We are so appreciative and honored that 827 people recently took the time to participate in our annual customer survey: the Net Promoter Score. When you take the time to respond, you are giving us a clear direction on where to invest and where to change course. It’s good for our customers—and it’s good for Ping.
We're happy to announce that our score this year is +65! That's considered world class and an indication that a strong partnership with you—our customers—is helping to deliver sweet, secure user experiences.
What is NPS?
Net Promoter Score, or NPS, is a customer loyalty and satisfaction measurement taken from asking customers how likely they are to recommend a company's products and services. The score can range from -100 (where all respondents would not recommend) to +100 (where all respondents would recommend).

Why Is NPS Important?
According to Capterra, two thirds of software buyers said reading reviews significantly impacted their purchase decision. If you’re like 74% of B2B buyers, your journey to purchase starts with a lot of online research before you even think about contacting an actual vendor. We understand the importance your experience with Ping plays in interactions with your peers and how you carry this experience throughout your career.
This is why we read every comment, and oftentimes engage to dive deeper and better understand your feedback. In turn, we share that feedback with each department within our organization so every team knows where to focus their efforts to make your lives better.
A Sampling of Ping’s NPS Reviews
In addition to the quantitative feedback generating our +65 rating is the qualitative feedback portion of the survey. These are text responses on what we're doing well and where we can improve. You gave feedback on everything from the sales process, your implementation experience, the sense of partnership you have with Ping, ways we can continue improving the products, and comments on our website and documentation. This is invaluable to us in our pursuit of creating extraordinary customer experiences.
You’ve told us we’re on the right track with positive comments about our products and services. We learned that you value our focus on offering helpful support, promoting high-quality relationships throughout our company, and upholding the core functionalities, stability and flexibility of our products. Here are a few examples you mentioned:

How We’ve Implemented Your Feedback
You’ve also shared your suggestions for ways we can better serve you. Over the past few years, we’ve delivered on both product and customer experience improvements based on NPS feedback. Some of the more notable improvements include:
Cloud-delivered IAM We have made large-scale cloud investments in direct response to feedback, including this year’s launch of PingOne Services: a suite of stand-alone cloud services that provide advanced identity and access management capabilities with flexible integration options. These services can be rapidly implemented and deployed together or individually to meet an organization’s unique needs. PingOne Services offerings can be easily integrated with existing IAM infrastructure, including Ping Identity solutions as well as third-party products, so that enterprises can pick and choose which advanced capabilities they need.
Intelligent Identity The first two PingOne services we released this year were PingOne MFA and PingOne Risk Management, addressing enterprise needs to balance security and convenience for their workforce and customers. PingOne MFA is a multi-factor authentication cloud service that protects from account takeover attacks, compromised credentials, fraud and other malicious activities, while delivering a smooth and frictionless user experience. PingOne Risk Management is a cloud service that uses machine learning to evaluate risk signals and detect threats in real time. Alongside these services, Ping is doubling down on our commitment to deliver exceptional user experiences by improving our own customer experience. We are launching a unified cloud administration experience that provides a single location for administrators to view and manage their identity solutions deployed on-premises and in the cloud.
Easy Access to Support We re-launched our Support Community earlier this year, where you can go to get quick answers on technical challenges. We also continue to develop our Ping Identity Support Portal, where you can easily access documentation, training, product downloads and more needed for Ping product success.
Going forward, we are looking at ways to further these improvements and more. Stay tuned for exciting 2021 announcements regarding enhanced cloud services, dynamic authorization and our efforts in paving the way to personal identity.
