Customer complaints are a necessary part of a business, but it can be discouraging to deal with them.

End-of-year reviews are useful surveys because they help a business better understand its strengths and weaknesses. However, the analysis doesn't have any set way of being done. Different companies conduct their end-of-year surveys in unique ways, tailored to the needs of the business. Regardless, at the heart of every year-end study is the data collected. Analyzing this data can offer an enterprise essential insights into what it could be doing better, and what it excelled at over the previous year.
