customer-centric product development

Infusing product development with customer feedback

The CallMiner Eureka conversation intelligence platform makes it easy glean insight from 100% of conversations with customers across all channels.

Building a customer-centric product development process

Customer feedback is central to the new product development process. From inspiring new products and features to identifying shortcomings and competitive weaknesses, comments from customers can optimize product development and help to focus product research and investments.

Yet, creating a customer-centric product development process is not an easy feat. Capturing accurate and comprehensive customer feedback remains a challenge for most product development teams. Methods like surveys, focus groups, and user testing draw insight from an extraordinarily small sample of customers, and the feedback is likely to be skewed by highly vocal customers with extremely positive or negative comments. Calls between customers and contact center agents can be a gold mine of unsolicited feedback, but these interactions are traditionally difficult to capture and analyze at scale.

CallMiner Eureka can help. As the global leader in conversation intelligence technology, CallMiner enables product teams to capture and analyze 100% of customer interactions across all channels, delivering the intelligence required for customer-centric product development.

Improving products with customer feedback

Conversation intelligence technology is powerful tool in customer-centric product development. A conversation intelligence platform uses AI and machine learning to capture, transcribe, categorize, analyze, and score interactions with customers on any channel. With a superior platform, product development teams can gather feedback and insight from interactions via phone, chat, email, surveys, SMS, social media, websites, and other channels.

By aggregating customer comments across channels, conversation intelligence allows product teams to easily identify trends and patterns that point to improvements that will make products better. Conversation intelligence can also reveal product shortcomings as well as safety and quality issues that can be quickly addressed to avoid larger problems. Consumer feedback can help teams refine product development strategy and enhance product experience management (PXM), leading to changes and innovation that ultimately align products with customers’ needs and market demand.

Frequently asked questions.

Customer-centric product development uses customer feedback to guide ideation, conceptualization, design, and testing of new products. In a customer-centric product development process, product teams strive to incorporate the widest range of customer comments from as many channels as possible.

To collect customer feedback, product teams have traditionally relied on focus groups, user testing, surveys, and recordings of contact center calls. Most teams have difficulty extracting accurate, comprehensive, and meaningful insight with these methods, as they are inherently difficult to scale and limited to an extremely small sample size of customers. That’s why more product teams today are turning to conversation intelligence technology to build a truly customer-centric product development process.

Conversation intelligence uses AI and machine learning to capture, analyze, and score conversations with customers across all channels. By revealing the meaning and intent of a speaker’s words as well as the sentiment and emotion behind them, conversation intelligence technology provides product teams with customer insights based on 100% of interactions with customers, rather than a small fraction.
