Over 270,000 members across Australia

Goodlife is one of Australia’s most popular health club chains. With over 270,000 members and clubs across the country, customer care and support is vital to Goodlife’s continued success.

Members engage with the club through various social media platforms, with Facebook as one of their most engaged channels at over 95,000 likes.

Hundreds of repetitive messages received each week

On any given week, Goodlife receives over a hundred Facebook messages from current and potential members. This message volume fluctuates heavily with messages often coming on the weekend and outside business hours. Responding to these messages can be challenging, as older and potentially more urgent enquiries get buried underneath the influx from the previous night or weekend.

Additionally, a large portion of these queries are repetitive. With many of the answers available on the website, it’s not an efficient use of staff members' time to regularly redirect users to web pages within Messenger. The inability to triage and prioritise enquiries can also put a considerable strain on the customer service team. Every question needs to be treated with the same amount of time, attention, and care as the last one.
