1. Describe your partnership with Khoros. Tell us about which Khoros teams you partner with (e.g. Strategic Services, Professional Services, Customer Success, etc) and the outcomes you were hoping to drive.

Our two Communities – Home and Wireless are matured communities supported on the Khoros platform since 2008. Later this year, we’ll combine these two groups together. Overall, we partner primarily with the Professional Service, Customer Success, and Strategic Services teams in a variety of ways. The Professional Services team helps us bring new features and improvements to our Communities. Customer Success helps ensure that everything is running smoothly. Strategic Services assists in driving our strategy which enhances both our Community performance and our overall customer experience. Additionally, with other professionals within Khoros (the awesome Moderation and Admin Team, as well as our Technical Account Manager) to assist with everyday community oversight.

2. How have your Khoros partners helped you shape your strategy and align your people and processes?

Invaluable would be the word to describe our partnership with Khoros, especially as it relates to developing our Community strategy. Khoros’ Community strategist has served as a wonderful guide – both for our overarching strategy and for assistance on an ad-hoc basis when tackling smaller projects. We’re also working together to develop a program for AI Accepted Solutions. The goal here is to increase our solutions rate and provide even more supportive content to our customers. Our Solutions Views is what drives 90% of our organic traffic. These solutions are also fed from Community via an API to our .com Support site to offer user generated content as well as unsolicited voice of the customer feedback to all customers.
