Top Takeaways

  • Two brands lead the pack: While half of the surveyed brands have a positive NPS, the top two score 2-3 times higher than the nearest competitor.
  • Satisfaction is moderate, but higher than in Europe: In the US, over 70% of oncologists surveyed are satisfied with available RCC drugs. In Europe, the figure is under 65%.
  • Oncologists are optimistic about new treatments: Low market share notwithstanding, one recently-approved brand gets high praise for innovation.
  • Exclusivity is relatively high: More than 20% of oncologists surveyed promote one brand exclusively.
  • Cost is a concern, but not for all brands: Although clinical attributes remain the key drivers of doctor recommendations, cost is important for half of the brands surveyed.
  • One brand is poised for a massive share gain: Significantly more than any other surveyed brand if it can turn its Detractors into Promoters.
  • Oncologists switch brands freely: Promoters of each brand promote 4 others on average. Detractors tend to promote nearly all of the other surveyed brands.

What is Net Promoter® Score?

NPS is a customer loyalty metric developed by (and a registered trademark of) Fred Reichheld, Bain & Company, and Satmetrix. It was introduced by Reichheld in his 2003 Harvard Business Review article One Number You Need to Grow.

How does NPS work?
NPS measures overall brand satisfaction and loyalty by asking one simple question:

"How likely are you to recommend this brand to a colleague?"

Responses - given on a scale of 0 (not at all likely) to 10 (extremely likely)—are used to classify respondents into 3 categories:

Detractors are those who answer 0 – 6.
Passives are those who answer 7 – 8.
Promoters are those who answer 9 - 10.

How is NPS calculated?
The percentage of detractors - the percentage of promoters = NPS.

For example, 25% Promoters, 55% Passives and 20% Detractors give you an NPS of +5.

NPS can range from -100 (everybody is a Detractor) to +100 (everybody is a Promoter). The higher the score the healthier the brand.

What is FirstView NPS+?

NPS+ turns your Net Promoter Score into actionable information by answering key questions about brand loyalty.

Each NPS+ report examines doctors’ relationships with the brands used to treat a major disease area—measuring brand loyalty and showing you how it affects your market share. NPS+ also examines “brand DNA”, revealing in doctors’ own words what brands mean to them.

Instead of one simple metric, NPS+ gives you a detailed picture of brand health that highlights areas for improvement, and helps you see exactly what steps you need to take next.
