Migros, Switzerland’s largest retailer, used customer sentiment analysis to avoid some embarrassing situations, learned from customer conversations and  realized not just customer service but all departments in an organization need to be customer centric.

There are several interesting information in this article. One such is this on false positives “A sentiment analysis tool might judge a consumer’s comment about a product to be negative because his post included the word “crap.” However, the software might have missed the context: “Holy crap!
