It's Not Just About Winning -- Improved Customer Service Pays Off for Casinos

Market Metrix Introduces Customer Metrix 3.0 for Casinos -- Web-Based Customer Feedback for Global Gaming Industry

SAN RAFAEL, CA--(Marketwire - September 26, 2007) - Market Metrix, LLC, the leading provider of customer and employee feedback and performance tools for the hospitality industry, today announced Customer Metrix 3.0 for Casinos, designed specifically for the gaming industry. This real-time, hosted web-based system provides multi-channel survey, analysis and service improvement tools and benchmarking data for the casino industry.

Survey results that make an impact

Casino companies such as Borgata Resort & Casino, IP Hotel & Casino and Pinnacle Entertainment are using Market Metrix systems to actively improve customer satisfaction, loyalty and service recovery efforts. According to the Director of Performance Management at the Borgata Hotel, Casino and Spa, "Market Metrix systems have helped us to significantly improve our daily operations and business results."

Reasons to collect customer feedback

Casinos used to believe that there would always be enough customers to replace the defecting ones. There were plenty of customers; it didn't matter if 1,000 customers left dissatisfied -- they would be replaced. But with more casinos to choose from, dissatisfied customers are not easily replaced. Most casino companies are now under pressure to increase customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Casinos often face similar problems:

--  Little guest feedback from day-trippers as well as hotel guests
--  Paper-based comment cards are often misused or thrown out
--  Inability to address guest issues immediately, before they leave
--  Not responsive to high-value customers
--  Unsure if incentives for different player levels are driving desired
