Entertainment brand AMC Theatres, the largest movie theatre company in the world, has grown from a small social team to an expanding digital team. AMC partnered with Khoros to solidify the structure of telling brand stories, helping customers, and getting the right data to share results.
AMC established a social voice and drove human interaction that was true to the brand while making sure their metrics were improving. AMC’s Social Media Care Team has now grown into a digital care team — partnering with the guest services team, so the call-center based teams can stay aligned and share information. AMC’s Social Media Care Team’s response time before Khoros was hours, but with support from Khoros — and with features like editable pre-saved response templates — they cut response time in half, and then recently in half again to an industry-leading 13 minutes and 54 seconds.
AMC finds Khoros Care to be intuitive and efficient, and their team members get exactly what they need from it. Because of Khoros efficiencies, AMC not only delivers fast responses from a small team, but they also maintain a high level of quality. In fact, their customers are so happy with the level of care AMC provides that they’ve written articles about it, unprompted. AMC also works hard to listen to customer feedback. When they changed the nacho cheese recipe in their theatres, customers complained on social for several months. AMC listened to that feedback and decided to revert to the former recipe. They announced the update on social, and because of Khoros, they were able to find and contact individual guests who had complained — a thoughtful personal touch — to share the welcome news and that resulted in a 99% negative to positive sentiment conversion.
For AMC, being there for customers on digital messaging channels is critical to their future strategy. AMC has begun piloting new messaging channels and they’ve already found success, earning them high customer satisfaction (CSAT) scores and substantial growth in digital conversations.
