New product development

Drive new product development with customer insight

The CallMiner Eureka platform captures and analyzes 100% of conversations to provide deeper visibility into the customer mindset.

A better way to understand what customers want and need

Customer feedback has always been at the center of new product development. Yet traditionally, the tools to collect accurate insights into customers’ mindsets have been extremely limited. From focus groups and user testing to surveys and ethnographic research, customer feedback for product development is usually focused on an extraordinarily small sample of consumers, rather than a comprehensive collection of customers and prospects. Additionally, the customers who are most vocal in these methodologies tend to be extremely satisfied or dissatisfied, drowning out the vast number of customers in between.

The CallMiner Eureka platform provides a better way to develop insight for new product development. Leveraging AI and machine learning, the Eureka conversation intelligence platform captures and analyzes every conversation with customers on calls, email, chat, social media, surveys, and more. By analyzing these interactions at the deepest level, CallMiner Eureka empowers your product development teams with insight and intelligence based on 100% of conversations with customers, rather than a small sample.

Developing competitive insight with conversation intelligence

Competitive intelligence is essential to every new product development strategy. From automobiles and appliances to smart phones and software product development, a clear understanding of how a product stacks up against competitors is essential for product intelligence, innovation, and improvement.

In the past, developing competitive intelligence has been a costly and time-consuming task. Product teams have had to manually review competitors’ websites, social media, and marketing collateral, or research product pricing, market moves, and acquisitions.

Conversation intelligence technology changes this equation by enabling your product teams to get competitive intelligence directly from your customers. Consumers are quick to offer unsolicited opinions about your products and competitors’ offerings in conversations with contact center agents, through social media, on review sites, and via many other channels. By automatically capturing and analyzing every customer interaction, conversation intelligence technology allows you to mine customer conversations for competitive insights with far greater detail and accuracy – and much lower cost and effort.

Frequently asked questions.

New product development is the process of bringing a new product to market. The stages of product development typically include researching customer demand and conceptualizing, designing, producing, and marketing newly created or newly re-engineered products.

Customer feedback plays an invaluable role in new product development, providing companies with insight into what products, services, features, and pricing will be attractive to potential customers.

Traditional methods of collecting customer feedback – such as focus groups, surveys, user testing, and monitoring social media and review sites – involve only a small sample of potential customers. This inherently skews or limits the quality of feedback. Conversation intelligence enables product teams to extract insight from 100% of interactions with customers across all channels – phone, email, chat, SMS, surveys, social media, and more. By converting the unstructured information in these exchanges into structured data that can be searched and analyzed, conversation intelligence provides greater and more comprehensive insight into customer opinions about a company’s products and services as well as competitors’ offerings.
