Before Royal Caribbean brought social customer care in-house, its agency would flag inquiries from the brand’s social channels, screenshot them, attach them in emails and then wait for up to two hours to get the right approvals to respond. Today, the cruise company answers most of its social customer inquiries in just a little over 11 minutes.

That sort of customization — and agility — is not easy to pull off for a brand with more than 3 million followers on Facebook, 193,000 fans on Twitter and 389,000 followers on Instagram. But Royal Caribbean has been able to streamline the process by employing a customer-care software by Spredfast, which has helped it manage its high volume of social interactions quickly and effectively.
