Metric - A quantifiable measure that is used to track and assess the status of a specific business process.


Net Promoter Score (NPS) - A one question survey that allows businesses to track their customer satisfaction over time. NPS uses a simple 1-10 scale and divides customers into three groups: promoters, passives and detractors. The actual NPS score is calculated by subtracting the percentage of detractors from the percentage of promoters, yielding a number between -100 and +100.


On-Page Poll - a quick one-question survey or form that can be embedded into a website, blog or other application.


Page - Qrvey elements that can be used to house web forms and select workflow actions. Multiple pages can be combined with a common navigation bar and authentication to build complete applications.
