Customer feedback drives innovative product development

Capture and analyze 100% of interactions to gain greater customer insight with CallMiner Eureka.

Is your new product development strategy customer-centric?

Every new product development strategy should be informed by customer feedback. Yet, too often, product teams struggle to access adequate insight into the customer mindset. In the past, soliciting feedback from customers required significant effort to collect data on a small sample of customers. Most teams still rely on focus groups, user testing, surveys, social media monitoring, or review of contacts center calls. While these methods offer some value, they are inherently limited to a narrow subset of customers and prospects. Additionally, the customers who are most vocal in these scenarios tend to have the strongest positive or negative opinions, skewing the results. For truly customer-centric product development, your teams must find a way to gather intelligence from as many customers as possible.

CallMiner can help. Our Eureka conversation intelligence platform makes it possible to capture and analyze 100% of interactions with customers across all channels. With CallMiner, your teams can optimize the new product development process with deeper insight into customer wants, needs, opinions, and behavior.

How conversation intelligence enables product innovation

Conversation intelligence fuels product development and innovation by delivering deeper insights into a much broader array of customers, faster and more accurately than any human being or product development team could achieve.

Using AI and machine learning, conversation intelligence technology captures, transcribes, and analyzes both audio and text-based interactions, determining the meaning of words, the intent of the speaker, and the emotion that’s driving their behavior. By transforming the unstructured information in conversations into structured data that can be searched, analyzed, and scored, conversation intelligence provides insight into a vast treasure trove of customer feedback that would otherwise be locked away.

When aggregated, these insights about individual customers form the ultimate, on-demand focus group, providing a continuous product feedback loop that allows your teams to test and introduce new products, improve on existing offerings, and mitigate risks and costs. By delivering insight faster, conversation intelligence allows product teams to act sooner on customer feedback and to track evolving customer sentiment.
