APD Global Research Partners with Feefo to Increase Service Excellence Visibility

May 2018

APD Global Research has announced an exciting new partnership with global reviews and insights company, Feefo. The partnership will enable existing customer experience and service reviews to be turned into powerful outward-facing Feefo ratings, linking internal and external metrics in one seamless process. 

APD collects tens of thousands of feedback every month via its own award-winning Voice 360 platform which measures satisfaction, recommendation and retention levels across all elements of the sales and ownership experience. 

APD Voice 360 users will now have the option for this data to be translated into individual Feefo scores, including any verbatim comments and a customer experience star rating out of five. 

Feefo has a partnership with the Google, Yahoo and Bing, and each time a review is completed it is recorded as fresh new content by these search engines which helps drive traffic to company websites. 

More quality direct traffic being sent to a company’s website pushes their site higher up the search engine rankings giving greater online visibility to customers and prospects. 

“This ground-breaking new Feefo partnership gives our Voice 360 clients an option to achieve greater visibility of their service excellence to the outside world,” explained Paul Turner, executive chairman of APD Global Research. 

“This will allow us to provide an improved research experience within Voice 360 by minimising the amount of times customers are often contacted for feedback, whilst optimising the use of the data we are collecting.

“Feefo’s reputation as a trusted online reviews platform, and its strong relationship with all the major search engines will help our customers increase their online presence. 

This will be particularly powerful for the car makers, dealer groups and online car brokers that we work for,” he added. “This is an exciting initiative for both parties,” explained Tshili Khupe, Feefo’s head of partnerships. “APD collects quality information that currently remains invisible to the outside world. By using Feefo, that data will become much more visible. We know that by making customer feedback more visible we can have a huge impact on clickthrough rates, which ultimately drives sales and revenue for businesses,” he added.
