  • Cases are being handled quicker and more efficiently which allows agents to move on to other things -- a positive from any angle.
  • Pending has allowed for us to confirm that all customers have been followed up with, something that was previously done manually.
  • Reporting features gives clients a new insight to customer outreach.

  • Customers appreciate fast responses to the things they post on social media. This tool allows that to happen.
  • The dashboard allows us to keep up with how many are waiting in our queue so we can keep up with how busy we are during the day and manage it.
  • Customer satisfaction has seemed to increase while using this tool.
  • Being able to add notes with the customers address and phone info is awesome as well.

  • Positive: Clients really like the reporting features.
  • Positive: Being able to search users for our clients who may have reported a complaint [somewhere] other than on social media. Also being able to see if they've reached out to us but deleted a comment is helpful.

  • We have definitely improved our customer service on social media thanks to Sparkcentral. People get answers to their requests a lot faster since we started using the tool.
  • Our social media team members can work more efficiently now that they only have one tool to manage several accounts and they can assign specific questions immediately to the right person.

  • Sparkcentral made it possible to add a significant amount of agents to our Twitter support team, which resulted in the fastest response rate we have ever seen.
  • With Sparkcentral, we no longer need to dedicate an agent's full attention to social media customer support. We can have multiple agents logged in at a time, keeping a watchful eye while getting other things done.

  • Providing customers the option to contact us via social media cuts costs for the company by lowering call in numbers and creating a more efficient way of assisting customers where they are.
  • Currently there is not an option to separate outside of business hours reporting for response time and within business hours. This can cause a pain point when reporting to other departments as it calculates a higher response time than the accurate one due to outside business hours.

  • The most important positive impact Sparkcentral had was immediately visible - our response time dropped 90%. We used to have interactions wait for over an hour to be handled, but we're now down to an 8 minute average.
  • The quality of our responses has improved - we're able to provide our agents with the tools they need to create well written replies, and have basics like automatically splitting of messages to send longer replies on Twitter.
  • Our customer support in social improved so much, that we actually won an award just 6 months after implementation.
