Why set up automated feedback and surveys for your business?

Continuous real-time feedback from customers is crucial for any business. It has taken a benchwarmer role because most businesses do not have the resources to call up the customers manually. Here’s where automated feedback and surveys can work for you. Use automated IVR calls to complete the feedback loop, SMS to obtain feedback regarding quality, missed calls to register support… the potential is unlimited.

What are some of the use-cases of automated surveys and feedback?

Ola wanted to train their drivers in between cab rides. While videos are used for training them, getting feedback on whether or not they understood the training was difficult to gauge. Solution: Exotel’s automated IVR survey solution helped to get feedback on the training the drivers received. Ola could now tell whether the drivers actually understood the training module or not. What’s even better, they call back only those drivers that didn’t understand the module or had queries about the same.
