Company's goals when connecting RocketData

Establish a systematic work with customer reviews in location-based services

"It is important for us that customers receive feedback in a timely manner, because this is a guarantee of their loyalty to our company.

Therefore, when connecting RocketData, the primary goal was to establish a systematic work with the Kcell customer reviews, which
they leave in location-based services and review sites.

RocketData platform should have made this task easier for us through centralized collection of feedback, quick notifications about them, as well as additional features in the form of templates and auto-replies".

Quickly add new office locations to maps and keep information up to date

"We also had the goal of adding the missing sales offices to popular location-based services and keeping information about them up-to-date.

RocketData had to speed up this process and remove the need to add
and manage data manually.

The number of sales offices is constantly growing, and it is important
forus that customers can always find accurate information about
offices in order to plan their visit without surprises".

Kcell's review about RocketData

"The main advantage of RocketData is that the platform saves time for our team both when dealing with reviews and with a local presence. The adding of a new service point is easy and fast, because we create it in a single interface, while the office is displayed in all mapping systems.

Also, it is convenient to update the working hours of our offices in all maps through a single interface.
It is possible to set a temporary mode of operation (for example, on holidays) and temporary closure
of the office. You can fix these parameters once, and then not return to them to change them back.

From the point of view of processing reviews, it is convenient that you do not need to go to each catalog or each location separately and look for reviews yourself. It is enough to enable automatic notifications in RocketData, which will notify you of each new comment. To optimize the work, we
use templates for answers to the most popular customer reviews and questions. In the case when there is no text in the review, but only a rating, we have set up auto-replies. All these features provide convenience for the operator and speed of response.

We also use RocketData to analyze reviews — we regularly provide reports on complaints, ratings and reviews to interested departments, track the time our employees work on reviews, and personally resolve each dispute with the client."
