“We chose Lithium to have a complete solution to follow and analyze content from our community.”
- Michel Da Silva, Technical Community Manager, Parrot
“With Lithium Response, we improved customer satisfaction.” Our primary goal was to improve customer satisfaction. To do this, we knew we had to begin engaging our Parrot community at a deeper level. So, we looked to Lithium to help us devise a solution that would allow us to better understand our community’s needs and address them in a timely manner by tapping into the social media channels we already had at our fingertips. Until we implemented Lithium Response, our social media channels were primarily used for marketing. Lithium helped us see an opportunity to make our social media efforts work harder for our business and for the benefit of our community. Since we’ve started using Lithium Response, we’ve gotten closer to our goal of closing the gap between us and our members – and, as a result, we’ve seen overall customer satisfaction steadily increase. Plus, we’ve been able to use social media to promote and grow our community as well.
“The feedback from our customers is very important.” Our members are the heart and soul of our business. We look to them to tell us more about what they need from us as well as what we can do to improve our products and services. But fostering communication between us and them s is just one piece of the puzzle. What we are doing now is empowering our community members to answer questions and share content with each other. We understand that the knowledge of our community is greater than our knowledge alone. Seeing our members work together to collaborate on solutions has been a tremendous learning for us. This kind of organic feedback loop has helped us build better products and solve complex engineering problems much faster.
“Total Community means having a clearer view of our customers and their needs.” We are firm believers in the benefits associated with taking a “Total Community” approach – to gather useful information, to grow our community’s digital footprint, to enlist the support of our most influential super users and brand advocates, and to engage our members in the co-development of meaningful products and solutions. Not only does this approach give us a better view and understanding of our members (and their unique needs), but it also makes it easier for us to provide actionable answers or immediate support – whether through our community or via our various social media channels – all in real-time. For us, taking a Total Community approach is not an option; it’s our path towards the future.
