“With quantitative and qualitative customer insights, our IT solution provider partners can improve the efficiency of their operations, retain more customers, and go to market more effectively,” said Chris Timms, EVP of growth, ConnectWise. “The immediate visibility into customers’ perceptions is important for recognising what businesses are doing right and where improvement is needed. The acquisition of SmileBack is a logical and natural evolution of our existing relationship, and we look forward to bringing SmileBack into the ConnectWise Asio™ Platform to help our partners achieve greater levels of success in their business.”

SmileBack’s customer experience solution helps inform and optimise business operations. After every service transaction, SmileBack puts customers one click away from one of three emojis that will unlock a world of increased customer loyalty, boosted morale and higher retention.
