Synthesio Named a Winner in International Listening B2C
November 19, 2010 – As a 2010 entrant for the Forrester Groundswell Awards, Synthesio has been named a winner in the international listening for the International Business-to-Consumer (B2C) division during the latest Forrester Marketing & Strategy EMEA Conference November 18 and 19 in London, for its recent work with Orange Telecom. This prize awards 4 years of research and development in monitoring and analyzing information published on the social web.
At the beginning of Orange’s partnership with Synthesio, Orange noted that clients were searching for answers and couldn’t find satisfactory responses, and Orange’s FAQ wasn’t as easy to use as they had thought. Discover the complete Orange case study on Synthesio’s blog
In order to overcome the multi-faceted problems faced by Orange, Synthesio listened to analyzed online conversations for more than a year, identifying 5 of the most influential forums for the company, their major contributors, and client expectations. Synthesio’s analysts monitor, filter, organize and analyze each conversation for sentiment (positive, negative, or neutral) to allow for actionable insights.
The results obtained by Synthesio have allowed Orange to develop a new digital strategy for online communication that is focused on their consumers. They have already seen an ROI of “several million euros” since the implementation of Synthesio’s monitoring and analytical services, and expect to see more soon. Orange has also used Synthesio to spot competitors’ offers that their customers wanted, like the Orange Open calling plan, and respond to customer concerns before they became a major problem.
