Improving Customer Response Time By 98% With Nextiva Social Media & Reputation Management






When you are one of the largest car manufacturers on the planet, reputation is everything. But managing your reputation at scale isn’t easy—especially with multiple social media channels and tens of thousands of reviews every month. The brand struggled with:

Executives, various business units, and individual dealerships could view custom dashboards to see the information most relevant to them. The brand could even filter by geographic zones, measuring performance and analyzing trends across different locales.

Real-Time Response, Real-World Benefits

One of the biggest challenges had been a lack of timely response to customer messages. Customers felt unheard and ignored.

With Nextiva, the manufacturer now had the ability to see every dealership’s reviews and messages in real-time. The platform’s customer service module automated the process, routing different queries to the correct team member and prioritizing urgent requests.

The result? An incredible 98% improvement in customer response time and an 11% increase in positive reviews.


The manufacturer needed a centralized, scalable solution to manage their reputation and create a consistent brand experience across all of their social channels.

One Platform For Everything

The first problem to solve? Fragmented information.

After implementing Nextiva Social & Reputation Management (formerly Simplify360), the manufacturer now had one centralized platform to track all of their dealers across the country.

Data-Driven Decision Making

Nextiva Social and Reputation Management also provided robust data reporting, integrated into the brand’s business intelligence via Nextiva’s API and manual downloads.

This increased visibility into operations also allowed the team to track performance at a granular level and create benchmarks for key customer service metrics, such as:

  • Turnaround time
  • Sentiment
  • SLA breaches

The brand could identify what worked and implement changes across their entire footprint, faster and easier than ever before. In a business where reputation is everything, this auto manufacturer could rely on Nextiva Social & Reputation Management to do the job.
