Customer Satisfaction Surveys - UPDATE:
TAC Case Bingos Are Now Web-Only
To handle customer satisfaction survey responses in the most efficient manner, Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) case bingo surveys are now available exclusively on the Web. Most customers have already been completing these surveys on the Web, allowing us to analyze their responses and take action more quickly than with surveys submitted by e-mail.
Survey invitations are automatically emailed whenever you close a case. To access the survey, click the link in the invitation.
This change is the first of several Cisco TAC case changes. Some of the other upcoming changes include:
- New case numbering scheme -- In March, TAC case numbers will change from seven characters (one letter followed by six digits, such as A123456) to nine characters (all digits, starting with "6," such as 612345678). If your company's internal systems use Cisco TAC case numbers, make sure to let your IT staff know about this change.
- Access to support services will require active contracts -- Also starting in March, customers seeking Cisco support services will need to have active contracts recorded in their Cisco.com profiles. To help prevent interruptions in your access to services, be sure to maintain your existing profile with all your active support contracts and personal contact details at:
(available to registered users)
- New terminology -- The transition to new terminology has begun. New terms include "service request" (replacing "case"), "severity" (replacing "priority"), and "service line" (replacing "contract type"). During this transition, you may see the old and new terms together. For example, "case (service request)."
