Harness the power of feedback to drive innovation

The CallMiner Eureka platform captures and analyzes 100% of omnichannel interactions to power product development and innovation with customer feedback.

Letting customers guide product development and innovation

Product development teams know that customer feedback is essential to product improvement and innovation. By mining customer interactions for intelligence, teams can gain a better understanding about how products can best serve the needs of customers, and which features will satisfy, delight, and impress them.

The challenge for teams working in product development and innovation is to capture feedback from the broadest collection of target audiences. Traditional methods like surveys and focus groups are highly selective, sampling a very slim fraction of the customer base. Calls to the contact center could be a potential gold mine of unsolicited feedback from a wide range of customers, but listening to and analyzing calls is extraordinarily time-consuming and difficult to scale.

Fortunately, CallMiner delivers a powerful solution that can deliver insight from 100% of customer interactions to drive superior product development and innovation. The CallMiner Eureka platform leverages conversation intelligence to automatically analyze customer interactions at scale, revealing more meaningful insight for product development management.

How conversation intelligence yields more meaningful feedback

Conversation intelligence represents nearly limitless potential for product teams to understand their customers at a deeper level. This technology captures and analyzes voice and text-based interactions such as phone calls, live chat, emails, SMS, surveys, social media, and websites – all the places where customers freely share opinions about their experience with your products. Using natural language processing (NLP), AI, and machine learning, conversation intelligence can interpret the meaning of a customer’s language, the intent behind it, and the sentiment and emotion that is driving their behavior. Collectively, these insights yield deep visibility into what customers want and need, and how they feel at every touchpoint on their product journey.

With these customer insights, your teams have the intelligence for more successful product development and innovation. The comprehensive feedback that conversation intelligence provides can serves as an “always on” focus group and product feedback loop, making it easy to test new ideas, products, features, and messaging in the product planning and development process.
