Time to Resolve (TTR)

As time to resolve (TTR) increases the level of dissatisfaction rises.  Positive satisfaction can be sustained as resolution times increase if customers are kept up to date and feel that progress is being made towards a solution.

Quality of Answer

Customer dissatisfaction with case resolution is more closely associated with the effectiveness of an answer provided by Support.  As the effectiveness of an answer declines the level of dissatisfaction with the support case grows.
