A pie chart showing the small percent of guests restaurants hear from without Ovation.

The problem

With fragmented feedback it’s difficult for restaurants to sort out the signal from the noise, leaving operators in the dark on what to fix and how their guests truly feel.

Online reviews are outliers that don’t reflect the average experience. And as for long surveys – when’s the last time you took one?

Plus, wouldn’t it be easier if guests came to you first with any concerns before they went to the internet?

The solution

Ovation gets you the right feedback and lets you know exactly what to do with it. Since Ovation surveys are two questions and SMS-based, it’s the easiest platform for guests to give you feedback and 5-star reviews.

In two clicks, managers resolve issues privately and directly, recovering guests and converting them into raving fans.

On day one you’ll have your finger on the pulse of your brand, knowing exactly what to fix, who to re-train, and what stores to celebrate.

STEP 2

Guest takes 2-question survey

The first question is always the same: “How was your experience?”

Short. Simple. To the point. We don’t lead the witness with 40 questions hoping we asked the right one.

If they give 5 stars, they’ll be asked to drive revenue for your locations by doing things like buy a gift card, schedule a catering order, etc.

If they give 1-4 stars, they’ll be asked for more details and entered into a private conversation with management.

All guests are encouraged to leave an online review, regardless of how they felt. 

“You don’t need that long survey. With Ovation it can be very casual – ‘How was your food? What were we missing?’ We used to ask like 10 questions before…what are you, taking a test?”
