Watermelon’s approach

As SMS surveys can be completed easily and quickly by customers on the go, and we are able to issue surveys while the experience is still fresh in their minds. Watermelon see high response rates and fast response times using this methodology.

This allows a quick reading on key customer satisfaction measures and identify issues as they start to emerge so you can take action before they escalate. The abundance of mobile phones also makes SMS surveying a convenient way to contact a large number of people, irrespective of their location.
