Alliance is Latest Action by J.D. Power to Expand Customer Experience Ecosystem

COSTA MESA and REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – OCTOBER 16, 2018 — Continuing to build the industry’s leading-edge, most comprehensive customer experience solution, J.D. Power has taken another step in building a digital ecosystem that will enable brands to more effectively understand the elements of customer satisfaction, this time through an alliance with Reputation.com.

The alliance combines J.D. Power’s world-leading consumer research, data analytics and advisory capabilities with Reputation.com’s unmatched technology for capturing customer insights from social media and review sites, to create a unified customer experience data solution for B2C enterprises around the world.

The combination of J.D. Power’s capabilities and the Reputation.com platform delivers a more holistic view of customer feedback, enabling businesses to provide an improved experience to their customers.

Until now, consumer-facing businesses were unable to capture, consolidate and deeply analyze customer feedback from market research, surveys, online consumer reviews, social media posts and other sources in a unified, integrated platform.

Under the alliance, J.D. Power provides its data and analytics expertise and Reputation.com applies machine learning and natural language processing to the cloud of unstructured text on social media and review sites. The combination delivers a unique platform for generating the customer experience insights companies need to improve operations, raise Net Promoter Score®, raise Reputation Score, differentiate service and compete more effectively.

“Managing a brand’s online reputation—and balancing it with other sources of feedback—has never been more important,” said Bernardo Rodriguez, Chief Digital Officer at J.D. Power. “We can advise clients on their online reputation and how that plays into their overall customer satisfaction related to J.D. Power benchmarks and customer research. Top companies want to differentiate themselves on customer experience, and that means taking a holistic look at all forms of customer feedback.”

J.D. Power’s industry benchmarks and reputation for independence and integrity have established it as one of the world’s most well-known and trusted brands. The organization has captured and analyzed the Voice of the Customer across more than a dozen industries globally for 50 years. Through its proprietary index model, the company identifies the many drivers of customer experience, accurately measures and links their effect to business results, and uncovers insights to drive results for clients.

The platform’s advanced analytics and reporting capabilities provide valuable operational insights that help clients be more efficient, deliver better service and drive traffic, visits and revenue.
