Background

 

With so many locations, Vestel Electronics needed a way that they could manage their online reviews and customer communications in one place. They were especially looking for a solution that would help them automate and be customizable to fit the needs of each location. Because of the custom reporting capabilities and automatic review requests, Vestel Electorincs knew Welocal was the right solution for them.

What was wanted to do was find a way to ask every customer for feedback & reviews, including  service customers. There was a need to  find the easiest, most streamlined solution for soliciting a high volume of online reviews without disrupting the company’s normal workflow.

Feedback collection +
Review generation, monitoring, and management in one place

Welocal's integration with CRM software, was another selling point for Vestel Electronics. That allowed Vestel to send review requests to every customer automatically after a purchase or service. In the consumer electorincs market, Google, Facebook and Instagram are the most crucial review sites, so these are the sites Vestel prioritizes. Welocal also sends Vestel dealers and regional managers automatic email alerts the instant a new review is posted for one of their locations on a third-party site. The team can monitor all reviews from all sites in one place. 

Using existing CRM and Welocal, they are able to collect feedback from customers on selling consultants’ performance, what their experience was like at a product showing, and how well the company is doing at their stores. Vestel Electonics uses this customer feedback to improve their business practices. Because much of this feedback is given in the form of reviews, the transparency helps to show prospects how much Vestel Electronics values their customer experience.

Boosting satisfaction with the customer feedback loop

Sending out requests with Welocal was simpler than Vestel's team could have imagined. Welocal integrated with Vestel’s existing business system. Review requests went out automatically via text message on the same day as the purchase. Since the process of sending a review request was taken care of automatically, nobody on the Vestel team needed to spend much time on the platform. Customers were already required to leave their phone number at checkout so the business didn’t need to make any changes to existing processes.

 

In addition, the team soon realized that their concerns about bothering their customers with text messages were unfounded. Most customers were happy to help out Vestel by leaving a review.

 

Since starting with Welocal, Vestel has collected more reviews and went from an average of 250 reviews on monthly basis to 1250 reviews monthly across all of its stores. Because the business was making an effort to solicit feedback from all customers, overall rating is no longer unfairly skewed by angry customers.

AI powered review responses changed the game

Vestel has always known the impact of responding to reviews. When a customer leaves a great review, responding with a sincere “Thank you!” proves to their customers that they care. When a customerleaves a negative review, the team knew they needed to respond quickly to resolve the issue. However, without having the right solution in place, they had struggled to keep up with their review responses at scale.

Welocal helped Vestel Electronics respond to all of their reviews, both positive and negative, to improve their customer experience. Now, customers know that their feedback is being heard and addressed. The constant stream of client feedback helps them to see which locations are performing well, and which locations need additional support. Not only have online reviews helped Vestel Electronics improve their customer experience, but it also helps them rank higher in local searches and improve their SEO, which is a crucial element to beating the competition.
