Astute SRM helped

In 2013, Domino’s Pizza increased the amount of social media volume it handled by 128% over the previous year. The key to this dramatic improvement in customer interaction is Astute SRM, a social media management tool from Astute Solutions.

Real-time Interaction brings Customer Praise

“Astute SRM makes it much easier to find and engage with customers just as they’re getting ready to order a pizza, so our contact center is becoming a real-time marketing operation” said Terri Haffey, manager of customer care at Domino’s Pizza. “When customers Tweet, ‘Who should I order pizza from today?’ we’re able to quickly see and react to that and win the sale.”

“Faster interaction means higher praise.”Astute SRM automatically searches for hundreds of Twitter key words and constantly monitors the Domino’s Facebook wall to find posts that need attention – which is on average less than 3% of total volume. Before it began using Astute SRM, Domino’s agents manually sorted through social media posts to weed out the other 97%, a time-intensive and inefficient exercise.

“Faster interaction means higher praise from our customers,” Haffey said. “It’s amazing how much praise that we can now show is coming in through Astute SRM.”

Contact Center Efficiency

Astute SRM works well with the Domino’s CRM tool, ePowerCenter, which is also from Astute Solutions. The compatibility of the two saved time and made Domino’s more efficient in the contact center. In addition to the 128% increase in social traffic handled, Domino’s has also reduced handling time by 53%. Social cases are often handled in less than 5 minutes, instead of the 15 minutes needed when Domino’s managed social cases manually. This freed time to focus on the precision marketing that drives sales with individual customer groups.

Crisis Mitigation with Major Influencers

When something happens to diminish the customer experience, speed is just as important. So when Astute SRM finds one of Domino’s preselected “alert” keywords, it immediately notifies the team, even if they aren’t logged in at the time.

“Astute SRM allows us to hear the social media concerns and intervene quickly to make things right, even on nights and weekends. That has a big impact on long-term customer loyalty,” Haffey said.

“When a big name calls out Domino’s, Astute SRM allows us to respond quickly.”

Sometimes, that criticism comes from major influencers, who can have a huge impact on the brand. Celebrities such as Gail King (800K Twitter followers), Suze Orman (1.5M Twitter followers) and Miley Cyrus (17M Twitter followers) have all Tweeted about Domino’s recently. Astute SRM intercepted the conversation in each case. Domino’s responded quickly to turn these critics into high profile social media endorsers.


“When a big name calls out Domino’s, for good or bad, Astute SRM allows us to respond quickly,” Haffey said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s in the middle of the night or on a weekend – our high influencer alerts come in from Astute SRM and we’re able to manage a rapid response.”
