What is a customer exit interview?
Customer exit interviews provide the ability to understand why a customer has decided to stop using a product or service. They are best used in conjunction with a survey to collect quantitative data around reasons customers are choosing to leave. When you want to dig deeper into the reasons or start to understand why certain reasons are being given in survey responses, interviews will help build that deeper level of insight.
