Wells Fargo said it will automate
monitoring of social media comments before the end of the year.

Speaking at the annual Teradata Partners
Conference in San Diego, Wells Fargo vice
president marketing decision strategies John Teget said that
the bank started automatic processing of customer comments captured
in call centers and branches five months ago.

“We intend to go live with social
media monitoring in the next 60 days,” he said.

The bank is working with text analytics
specialist Attensity to review customer comments automatically and
rank them for variables such as sentiment and intent.

The data is then added to the company’s
Teradata warehouse where it will be analysed alongside traditional
transactional and financial data.

Teget expects that the process will help
Wells Fargo deal with service and product issues and also
provide insights into product and account development.
