About the Client

The client is a leading player in the entertainment and sports technology industry. With over 98,000 employees and about 180+ products and services on offer, the company is one of the leading players in the sports technology industry in Finland.

The Business Challenge

The growing popularity of the brand within the entertainment and sports technology industry led to a sudden surge in its global customer base. This can mainly be attributed to the client’s business objective that revolved around customer-centric innovation and customer management. However, the rise in the global customer base made it challenging for the entertainment and sports technology industry client to analyze and act on customer sentiments in real-time.

To tackle their challenges the client had deployed a market research team to help managers across their company to make crucial, well-informed decisions regarding product and service marketing strategies. For this, they leveraged Voice of Customer (VoC) analytics by designing, distributing, and analyzing a wide range of customer feedback surveys. But as part of a push towards optimization and customer service improvement, the client’s team began working to integrate a new type of customer sentiment data- social media data. This is when they approached Quantzig looking to leverage its social media sentiment analysis capabilities to understand the social sentiment of their customers using opinion mining and text analytics.

The client’s challenges spanned three core areas including:

  • A growing customer base
  • Inability to comprehend social media data
  • Need to analyze customer needs using social media sentiment analysis
