Customer Effort Score is a popular metric that measures how much effort it took the customer to achieve his/her goal.

Poor UX and usability forces your customers to expend more effort achieving their online goals. The moment you start employing CES surveys, you give your customers the opportunity to share what is standing in their path. And guess what? The insights they provide are your key to improving your website and lowering customer effort!
