Summary Squirrel Business Solutions was engaged to create a seamless post-service survey experience for Comfortel’s customers that was linked to the Service record in the CRM and would provide them valuable insights about their servicing team, known as technicians.

Zoho CRM, Zoho Survey, Burst SMS

The brief

Comfortel wanted to utilise tools within the Zoho One suite to better engage with their customers and learn more about their experience with a Comfortel service technician.

“We wanted to offer a quick survey for all customers who have service calls from us.” Matt Hore, General Manager, Comfortel. 

Hairdressers and salons are always busy and staff tend to spend as little time as they can in front of a computer, so it was important that the solution was designed to best reach these people.

The Solution

Squirrel designed a simple survey using Zoho Survey that would allow the Salons to rate the service they received from booking through to completion.  The CRM was modified to allow for the collection of the survey results, as well as controlling who and when they would receive the survey. The survey link is sent via an SMS using a scheduled system automation to ensure it is received at a suitable time after the job completion details are updated.

The Systems

Zoho Survey was chosen due to the ease with which you can create and share the survey as well as the out of the box integration to Zoho CRM, making reporting a breeze.

Not only that, Zoho Survey is optimised for mobile devices, ensuring that Salon customers can easily access and respond to the questions on the go, without hassle.

Burst SMS was already in place for the Comfortel team, so implementing this solution required only a couple of additional steps to set up a custom webhook to trigger the send. Please click here if you would like to read more about how Burst SMS could help your business.
