At a glance
The major challenge was to collect and manage all reviews and questions data on Amazon. It was impossible to evaluate customer feedback, respond to individual complaints or questions, and – ultimately – to establish a reporting on those metrics.
The gominga Review Manager empowers the Garmin customer support team to monitor all product reviews as well as questions on Amazon, respond to individual feedback with the integrated ticket management system and even report on those cases. Professional processes have been established and processing times reduced.
Thanks to gominga, the Garmin customer support team can identify root causes for complaints, interact directly with users on Amazon, establish internal feedback loops and KPI reports, and make improvements in terms of marketing and product development. And at the same time reduce processing times.
