‘Automation’ is a word on the lips of every business leader as companies the world over strive to automate everything from supply chains to HR to finance.
‘Automation’ may typically conjure images of mechanical robots replacing human labour (à la car manufacturing). However, leaders in all industries recognise that human relationships are at the heart of business and that automation should enhance, rather than replace, interactions between company and customer.
Pioneering businesses automate processes to enhance the outputs of their human employees, improve the customer experience (CX) and drive their online reputation.
Why Companies Should Automate Online Reputation and CX Management
Companies that automate online reputation and CX management benefit in numerous ways, achieving:
- Consistency across digital platforms, including social media and Google My Business listings;
- Time-savings and efficiency in response to customer queries and complaints;
- Rapid response in times of crisis;
- Minimisation of human error;
- Compliance with requirements and policies relating to customer service;
- And much more!
Ultimately, automated online reputation and CX management drives revenues and enhances a company’s ability to scale operations. It is critical, therefore, that you gain an understanding of precisely what your business can automate in its online reputation and CX management practices.
The importance of online listings, particularly Google My Business (GMB), is not to be underestimated as consumers increasingly favour GMB listings over company websites. However, managing separate listings for multiple locations can be a time-consuming, money-draining challenge for companies.
Cutting-edge tools to manage business listings, such as Reputation.com’s business listings solutions, enable businesses to maintain accuracy with ease by automatically pushing correct location data to search engines, social platforms and industry-specific sites.
Automate business listings to enable your company to stand out online with rich, precise business and location listings that drive traffic, calls and clickthroughs.
