IF Metalls' increasing member satisfaction converts to employee satisfaction

Learn how IF Metall saves thousands monthly with Raffle Site Search for their members.

Situation

IF Metall's traditional search on their website didn’t work, as it came up with false suggested answers, leaving members and visitors with unsolved questions and nowhere to turn outside opening hours. During opening hours, it overflowed member service and legal assistance with questions that could have been answered on the website.

Solution

Implemented Raffle Site Search and Raffle Advanced Insights that proved to work from day one. Raffle Site Search connects free text search questions with the correct information, and Raffle Insights offers profound insights on member needs and expectations.

Impact

IF Metall experienced an increased resolution on member questions by a stunning 80% from day 1. They utilize the Raffle Platform to gain insights on the increased question resolution and the savings from not having the questions to members and legal support. These savings represent thousands of Euros monthly, with numerous visitors using Raffle confirming that members longed for a better search experience.

IF Metall is a large Union with over 100 years of history, focusing on equal value for all. Their 300,000 members collaborate to build equality, solidarity, and freedom within the workplace. The trade union works hard to protect the rights of their members and ensure the best working conditions. 

A Search that is Blurry.

For IF Metall, it is vital for them to have a search that works, meaning they can provide equal access to information for visitors and members to maintain and build their union. IF Metall strives to protect all members, ensuring a safe working experience, fair practices, and equal opportunities; thus, members need to be able to search on their site for documents when they have inquiries. Their old search was operating on outdated algorithms and technology that did not do a full sweep across all their resources, databases, platforms, and applications causing information to be lost due to keywords missing file size or type. Additionally, these keywords do not contextually understand the questions nor allow for misspellings or grammatical errors in searches resulting in inaccurate results. In short, IF Metalls search was the traditional search before, and for most of the conventional searches, they are broken.
