ServiceTrakTM Methodology

IMV's ServiceTrakTM Imaging surveys are conducted on a semiannual basis with reports delivered in July and January. The surveys are conducted evenly throughout each six-month period, such that approximately one-quarter of the surveys for each report will be conducted in each quarter of the year.

ServiceTrakTM ratings are collected using a 10-point scale, where 10 = "excellent" and 1 = "very poor."

The survey is divided into sections, allowing respondents to focus on each specific area independently:

  • Manufacturer performance
  • System performance
  • OEM service performance
