Rant & Rave's Sentiment Analysis platform will then understand all comments instantly and flag areas in need of attention so Dee Valley staff can take action. As well as bringing contact centre staff closer to their customers, the system will be used to rectify issues, identify training needs and highlight opportunities for praise.

The water company will also use Rant & Rave's Frontline Engagement module to present the voice of their customers back to the wider business in a fun and engaging way. Individual agents will be able to read feedback received specifically about them and view how their performance compares to others within their team.
