About the Barometer

The ranking is based on several criteria with specific weighting: the national average score, the number of reviews per establishment, the response rate to reviews, the response time and the diversity of responses.

In the international ranking, Decathlon Switzerland (91.15 points) is the company that best manages its online reputation. Leroy Merlin Portugal (90.23 points) is in second place in the ranking, just ahead of Decathlon UK (88.72 points), which occupies a good third place. These brands are at the forefront of online reputation and have mastered all aspects of it.

In the ranking, we also looked into other well-known companies such as Swiss Collector, Automotive Glass Europe, and Shawarmer.

The importance of response time

Getting a lot of reviews is good. But you also need to take the time to respond quickly to increase customer satisfaction.

At this level, the automotive, banking and insurance sectors are prevalent, as well as the personal care sector. They manage the vast majority of their reviews very quickly.
