Why Frederiksberg Forsyning Needed Raffle Search
Frederiksberg Forsyning faced a challenge in making sure their website understood their customer’s questions, having the right content to answer those questions correctly, and making sure those answers were easily discoverable on their site. Kristian E. Beyer, the Head of Communication at Frederiksberg Forsyning, knew they needed a solution to improve their website and make it more user-friendly for their customers.
“One of the challenges we faced, as we didn't always understand what our customers were asking was what answers, in reality, they were searching for”.
Frederiksberg Forsyning needed a search solution that could understand their customers, regardless of the words used, potential misspellings, or nuances in their questions. Additionally, they required a system that could provide data on the most sought-after content by their customers. At the same time, the solution needed to perform the fundamental function of making information easily discoverable. Enabling customers to resolve issues independently without needing to contact customer support or leaving the website frustrated and empty-handed. They were unsure if such a solution could exist until they found Raffle.
“The word I would use to describe Raffle and the interaction we have had would be, personal.”
After implementing Raffle, Frederiksberg Forsyning's website became user-friendly and more data-driven.

With Raffle managing the back-office processes, the Frederiksberg Forsyning team was able to allocate more time to analyzing the results and gaining valuable insights. The reduced time spent on maintaining the solution allowed them to focus on understanding their customers better and addressing their needs more effectively.

The Importance of Speed in Customer Service
Time is one of the most valuable commodities in our society, once it's gone, it can’t be replaced, it can't be bought or bargained with, and it is always feeling, which is why it’s one of the most important components in any business. According to Forbes, a recent study noted that two-thirds of customers say speed is as important as price and that 50% of customers are less likely to spend money with a business that takes longer to respond than they expect. By making sure that customers are attended to not only effectively but also quickly, businesses have a higher chance of succeeding and building loyalty. That's why it’s so important to make sure that the search function serving customers on your website in their times of need is crucial.
In the study, over half of the surveyed customers revealed that they preferred the first business that responded to their inquiries the fastest, even if it meant paying a higher price. Rapid response times have a significant impact on your business's bottom line. Just as exceptional customer service and convenience outweigh pricing concerns, swift responses and efficient service hold similar importance.
The study demonstrates that customers are willing to pay more for immediate service to avoid waiting in lines, being put on hold, and more. Speed and convenience are highly prioritized by customers, with 27% of them being more likely to spend money when a brand exceeds their expectations with speedy responses. This highlights the importance of implementing a search function on your website that can meet this demand
