With a 100-year legacy of innovation backed by industry experts, Fluidra North America has established itself as a leading global manufacturer of pool and spa products under the leading brand names of Jandy® Pro Series, Polaris®, Zodiac®, Cover-Pools®, iAqualink™, and Nature2.

Amplifying the voice of the customer

As an industry-leading pool supply brand, Fluidra North America realized in order to maintain its spot at the top and stand out in a hyper-competitive market, it would need to improve its online review volume and ratings. Today 85% of the customers make a purchase after reading online reviews and compare products. To give prospects enough information during the decision-making process, Fluidra North America needed a way to share real experiences from satisfied customers.


Fluidra North America knew that the customers are the real market drivers. The company also aims to constantly improve product quality, and knew that customer feedback would provide valuable insights required to help Fluidra North America make focused improvements to keep delivering world-class products. However, with 300+ products and sub-brands, it was difficult for Fluidra North America to manually ask customers for reviews. This led to the search for a way to automate the review generation process. That’s how Birdeye came into the picture.

Enhancing online reputation from every angle

The company had a decent number of reviews on sites like Amazon and eBay but was missing a solid presence on many other prominent review sites.


To tackle all these opportunities, Fluidra North America onboarded Birdeye for online reputation management, which includeed review monitoring, review generation, and review marketing.

The first step at reputation repair was getting new reviews across multiple review sites. Fluidra North America utilized Birdeye's Review Generation feature to create customized feedback campaigns and then to integrate them with their existing email marketing strategy. Because they asked for customer feedback in a timely manner, they were able to generate substantially more reviews.


To ensure all their customer testimonials reached Fluidra North America's target audience, the company automatically promoted their reviews across the web. Birdeye built custom SEO-optimized microsites for all Fluidra North America products displaying their reviews from all sites.
