6 Companies Using Get Satisfaction to Enhance Support


P&G’s Braun and Oral B brands deployed a support community with a specific goal—reach customers faster and in a more cost effective way. Mission accomplished: The brands reduced support costs 67% while increasing customer satisfaction by 10%.

SPS Commerce

SPS Commerce has the good fortune of a rapidly- growing customer base, many of whom expect a self-help option. By the end of the first year of its Get Satisfaction community, the company estimates it deflected over 28,000 customer contacts—300% more than it had forecasted.

Koodo Mobile

With a customer base of over one million, Koodo Mobile wanted a community that would mostly run itself. After establishing a comprehensive knowledgebase, Koodo actually freed up resources. The results are eye-opening: More than 95% of community questions are answered without employee involvement and there’s been a 44% increase in call deflections.


TechSmith’s community serves as a great way for customers to let the company know when products are on track, when something isn’t up to snuff, and where they want TechSmith to go next. The community provides a scope and diversity of feedback that would be cost prohibitive by traditional methods. In the development of one new product alone, TechSmith estimated nearly $500,000 in savings.


When Prezi launched in 2009, it embedded a Get Satisfaction community into its strategy right out of the gate. Today, the community of 60,000+ members delivers customer support, product feedback and peer- to-peer idea sharing. It also has two newer communities in Spanish and Portuguese.


Endomoto saw its customer base grow 330% in just one year. Ten million new people signed on for the service but support requests never increased. Why? A Get Satisfaction community picked up the slack.
