"Outstanding Platform for every small business that depends on reviews"

Comments: The CEO is responsive. They're developing additional features for the platform. This is a cool startup and I'm excited to be a customer. I tell all my franchise partners about them. This is not a sponsored review :).

Pros: What's not to like? You automatically text customers, solicit reviews, and get feedback. The nicest thing about the platform is you're able to get texts from the platform on your phone, and respond in real time. Customers think you're texting them directly from a store phone number, and you can engage with live-action conversations to resolve concerns. Our business has benefited a ton from this as we've been able to resolve customer complaints and fix what we've done wrong.

Cons: Honestly, nothing. It's pretty niche so doesn't solve every marketing pain point, but that can be said of most marketing solutions.

"Helps us get, keep & grow customers"

Pros: We love how Ovation allows us to engage with customers while they are still in our restaurant. We have increased the number and quality of our reviews since implementing Ovation, by a lot. I believe we were around 4.5 stars and 200 reviews when we started. We are now at 4.7 stars and 500 reviews overall, and nearly 4.9 stars in the past month. The difference? We can talk to guests when things are less than perfect and make them feel better about their experience before they write a sad review. Ovation also helps us improve our guest experience by allowing guests to share feedback, which we implement real-time. Our team has a better first-focus and our operations are better because we learn each day what makes our guests happy and what we need to improve.
We are in a small town with lots of summer tourists. I can’t tell you how many people came in this summer and told us they found us by searching reviews. They increase our search results even though we don’t do any paid internet advertising.

Cons: I wish the software integrated with my loyalty program and text system. I think they are working on that and may have solved it. Let’s hope so!

Well we give you a 5-star review for being an awesome customer! We are working on integrating, but in the meanwhile, we do offer Ovation loyalty and text marketing now! Let us know if we can help you out. Appreciate you, Bill!

"Good Travel Booking Tool & Great Integration with Concur"

Comments: Solving timely employee expense reporting by making the process easier.

Pros: Easy to use with Concur as all trips automatically sync and get added to your expense report (and if you have connected cards, they get matched up with the imported card charge). From the employee side, it makes submitting monthly reports very convenient. From the finance side, there are discounts associated with managing all bookings with Ovation.

Cons: Fees can be a little high (charged per booking/transaction, regardless of transaction price). If bookings like car rentals fall through, those charges are not reimbursable. However, with enough volume depending on your company side, the fees are worth it.

"Most Valueable Partnership"

Comments: We love working with Ovation!

Pros: We love the opportunity to communicate with less-than-satisfied guest in real time. Also, requesting reviews from happy guests has resulted in more than 600 reviews and a 4.8 star rating.

Cons: We have occasionally run into problems getting push notifications if our mobile phones are not using the most up-to-date operting system.

"Thrilled with the results!"

Comments: We were struggling for new reviews and looking for a service that would help us attain more. We had wonderful reviews and high ratings but not many and few recent. In just 3 months of having Ovation integrated into our office, we've nearly doubled our reviews and our ratings are spectacular! We are beyond thrilled with results and would recommend this system and service to any business looking to broaden their presence on the web and social media sites.

Pros: The simplicity of design and ease of use for customers.

Cons: The inability to send the review link to a phone number OR an email address. Having the cell number as the only communication option is not helpful with our patients who do not have or use cell phones.

Miranda, So glad you have seen such an awesome jump in reviews. Doubling in 3 months is fantastic. Grateful to have you as a customer. We would recommend you to anyone to anyone in need of a chiro just based on the reviews we've read!
