iPerceptions First-Class Active Research Platform Democratizes 'Voice Of Customer' Analytics and Speeds Time-to-Action

Marketers Can Now Capture the 'Voice of the Customer' in the Moment of Truth Using Scientific-Based Self-Service Surveys to Drive Real-Time Actions in Business Processes

MONTREAL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/12/13 -- iPerceptions Inc., a leading provider of online Voice Of Customer (VOC) analytics derived from actual visitor feedback, today announced the new iPerceptions' Active Research Platform, which raises the bar in VOC Analytics -- while breaking key barriers that have made it impossible for many organizations to use VOC technology. iPerceptions' Active Research Platform includes Free, Plus, Premium and Professional subscriptions, which deliver unmatched functionality at every level and dramatically speeds up time-to-action with a unique self-service survey creation capability.

"Although VOC Analytics is viewed as a critical component of customer analytics -- the cost, time and expertise required to develop scientifically-based surveys and conduct analysis have created barriers for many organizations," said Audry Larocque, CEO of iPerceptions. "Our new iPerceptions' Active Research Platform removes these barriers by making sophisticated, research-based VOC analytics fast, simple-to-use and affordable."

For the first time, marketers with any budget can gain customer insights from iPerceptions Free, which is based on the proven and trusted 4Q Task Completion research methodology and now includes the flexibility of customizable questions and power of unlimited survey responses. This free offering also gives users a KPI dashboard, supports 32 languages and is integrated with Google Analytics.

The new platform includes Plus, Premium and Professional subscriptions, which offer marketers a robust, multi-channel VOC solution that captures feedback through trusted 4Q Task Completion Framework and iPSI Customer Experience Framework, as well as Comment Cards, online surveys, mobile surveys and tablet surveys. Marketers can conduct an unlimited number of surveys simultaneously to gather specific insights without incurring additional cost. This results in shorter, more relevant surveys that deliver highly targeted insights.

"Time-to-Action has become paramount for marketers," added Larocque. "The convenience of online comparison shopping and shrinking product development cycles have made customer loyalty more challenging than ever. Today's marketers don't have the luxury of waiting weeks or months to capture customer feedback, they need to know what inspired customers in the 'moment of truth.' Our new SaaS survey model empowers marketers to create VOC surveys in minutes and gives companies the opportunity to use an 'Active Research' approach to VOC analytics."

The Active Research platform also includes Word and Concept Clouds, which create a visual representation of data -- improving the speed and accuracy of insights. iPerceptions' real visitor, real-time industry benchmarks generate an instant snapshot of performance to effectively evaluate results. Customers using the Professional subscription can also benefit from integration with Tealeaf's customer experience management (CEM) solutions from IBM.

iPerceptions' professional services are now available on Plus, Premium and Professional subscriptions -- making sophisticated VOC Analytics accessible to organizations and departments with any budget.

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are: Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS) Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
