REI was interested in managing and monitoring their current online reputation and capturing more online reviews to help them grow their business. They also wanted help removing bad reviews that they felt were defamatory and didn’t tell the actual customer experience that REI is known for.
Before working with Dandy, the management of online reviews was more of a manual task, going in and out of several review sites to make sure they were operational and business information was up to date. Removing defamatory reviews was daunting and time-consuming. REI wanted to focus on providing exceptional customer experiences, so they were looking to Dandy to automate reputation management and monitoring and automate the challenge process to have reviews removed from sites like Google, Facebook, and Yelp. In addition to removing bad reviews, they wanted to capture new reviews from their customers. This was also a very manual process, and while they had a great approach to capture recent reviews, they were also looking at ways to improve this process.
Dandy and REI teamed up to bring reputation management to the forefront. REI signed on for several solutions; Review Removal, Reputation Management, and Review Generation.
The goal was to remove bad reviews and generate more customer reviews to showcase the authentic customer experience and keep an eye on all the reviews they collected across several different review sites. For REI, time is money, and they needed Dandy to automate some of these processes so they could focus on growing the business. Dandy was able to remove 60 negative reviews from REI’s Google My Business Page within 90 days!!!
