Multinational Self-Storage Organization Increases Review Volume by 228X
As a pioneer in the self-storage industry, this multinational storage space vendor opened its first self-storage facility in 1972. Today it operates thousands of unique and diverse company-owned locations in the United States and Europe, totaling more than 142 million net rentable square feet of real estate. Additional self-storage facilities add about 28 million rentable square feet of commercial and industrial space.
Recognizing that longevity and success in the storage industry shouldn’t be taken for granted, the organization enlisted the help of an online reputation management (ORM) solution provider to improve their Reputation Score, increase review requesting and responding, boost online review volume and learn how to manage and improve customer experience using insights from online reviews.
This leading storage space vendor had little to no insight into customer sentiment about their facilities in various locations. With suboptimal (4.0) average ratings and a low overall Reputation Score (77), they knew they needed a systematic approach to requesting and responding to reviews.
The challenge would be empowering managers at each location with the tools, templates and training necessary to implement a consistent process.
