Switching on the Service Monitor > Airship connector means that each time a customer gives feedback, the customer and feedback data will be automatically sent to your Airship database.

Data from Service Monitor is sent across to Airship in real time.

Getting started

To get started, get in touch with your Airship Account Manager. Provide confirmation in writing to your Service Monitor Account Manager that your data can be shared with Airship.

Your Account Manager will then let Airship know that they require API access to send data to your Airship database.

The following details will need to be provided to Service Monitor who will switch on the connector for your account;

  • Airship Personal Access Token (Read + Write)

  • Airship Account ID

Once Service Monitor connect to our API to retrieve a list of Unit IDs and map them in their system.

Creating an API token

You'll need to create an API "Personal Access Token" for Service Monitor to pass data into your account securely. To do this. you can either;

A) Invite your Service Monitor account manager as a user to your Airship account and let them do this themselves, or;

B) You can do this on their behalf and pass the token on to them securely.

Airship Account ID

Service Monitor will also require your Airship Account ID. If you're not sure what this is, please request it from our Customer Success team.

Airship Unit IDs

Service Monitor will connect to our API with the authentication details to get a list of venues, these will then be mapped in their platform and provided when someone interacts with that venue.

How is it used?

Feedback Invites

  • Unit ID for the visited venue (merge tag)

When a customer clicks on an email link, they will be directed to a survey. Service monitor will request the contact details (using the contact ID) for the customer and if;

  • They dont exist in the database or

  • They exist and are opted out

Service monitor will ask them to opt in as part of the survey journey. Once complete, Service monitor will post the details back to Airship.
