Ritesh Agarwal, OYO Founder and Group CEO, encourages customers to share open and honest feedback on Valentines Day, with a new initiative
New Delhi, 14th February 2023: Valentine’s Day is a day to express love and gratitude towards your loved ones. However, it’s also a day to patch-up, reflect, and make things right. Highlighting the need for open and honest conversation between a brand and its customers, Ritesh Agarwal, OYO Founder and Group CEO, announced a new feature for Valentine’s Day to encourage customers to share their unbridled and honest feedback, complaints, criticism and suggestions.
Ritesh Agarwal, in a LinkedIn post, wrote: “OYO was conceptualised and built with feedback from you, our customers, and you will always be our first love. And today, we are all ears to listen. Whether it’s admiration, disappointment, or criticism – we would love to hear it all.”
“Starting today, we are launching a simple quick experimental feedback page where you can openly, honestly and anonymously express how you feel about OYO and what we can do better. Our leadership team, service teams and I are closely watching this.”, he added.
Taking a unique approach, the feature is centered around the perception that the company needs to be more open and responsive to its customer experience and feedback. To capture customer feedback, OYO has rolled out a feedback section on its website landing page, and on its app called ‘We Need to Talk’, where customers can share their queries and honest feedback. The number of open and resolved queries is also displayed on the homepage real-time to give customers a clear perspective.
OYO has consistently been making strides in improving its customer experience. Currently, 80% of its customer queries are resolved within 30 minutes, a metric that the company is trying to further improve upon. Recently, the brand also launched Super OYO, a strategic program which recognizes hotels that provide the most consistent and high-quality customer experience. OYO is planning to launch multiple initiatives in coming year which help in ensuring smooth customer journeys.
