A Commitment to an Exceptional Client Service Experience

In the most recent client satisfaction survey, DS+B earned a Net Promoter Score (NPS®) of 70.6%, which is on par with some of the most admired companies in the world. To put in reference, our client satisfaction ratings are nearly 3x the accounting industry average NPS® of 24% (2019).

For our outstanding score, DS+B was awarded a “Best of Accounting” designation by ClearlyRated, the survey administrator. Fewer than 1% of all accounting firms in the United States and Canada have earned the Best of Accounting Award for providing remarkable service quality to their clients.

“Now more than ever, providing a consistently remarkable client experience is critical for accounting firms,” said ClearlyRated’s CEO Eric Gregg. “All accounting firms attempt to deliver great service – Best of Accounting winners have proven it. I couldn’t be more proud to showcase these service leaders alongside feedback from their actual clients, on ClearlyRated.com and applaud them for their commitment to service excellence at their respective firms!”
“Our goal is to create an exceptional client experience by being connected, proactive and accessible,” says DS+B Managing Principal, Sean Boland. “That means understanding their ongoing business or individual needs. We are connected to the challenges they face and what’s on their mind throughout the year. We’ve instilled in everyone at DS+B to be proactive, check-in with the client and make sure everything is updated. Top-of-mind, front-and-center. Being accessible means we are responsive to their questions or requests – our policy is to reply within 24 hours. We give our business clients the attention they deserve.”
