Customer feedback optimizes product development management

Capture and analyze 100% of omnichannel customer interactions with CallMiner Eureka, a conversation intelligence platform.

The role of the customer in product development management

Managing product development is a whole lot easier when the product development team has access to comprehensive customer feedback. By revealing deep insights into the needs of potential buyers and what kinds of products and features might satisfy them, customer feedback brings focus to every stage of product planning and development.

Yet, product development management teams are typically saddled with inadequate means of collecting feedback from customers. Focus groups, user testing, and surveys can provide some answers. Collecting product reviews and ratings from websites or listening to a sample of customer interactions with the contact center can help as well. But each of these approaches focuses just on a very small audience sample – they can’t begin to provide the breadth or depth of insight that product development management teams crave.

CallMiner can help. With a conversation intelligence platform that captures and analyzes 100% of customer interactions, CallMiner helps to drive superior product intelligence, innovation, and improvement.

How conversation intelligence improves customer insight

Conversation intelligence captures 100% of customer conversations via phone, chat, email, and other channels. These interactions are full of unsolicited feedback that is pure gold for product development management. Leveraging AI and machine learning technologies, conversation intelligence identifies the meaning of language, the intent of the customer, and the emotional drivers of behavior in every interaction. When aggregated with data from thousands or millions of customers, conversation intelligence serves as the ultimate focus group for effectively testing new ideas and products, or continuously improving existing offerings.

Conversation intelligence can drive better new product development strategies in every industry, from cars and clothing to electronics and software product development. With the right platform, product development management teams can:

• Drive innovation, improve market fit, and quickly respond to customer feedback.

• Identify competitive strengths, weaknesses, and threats by monitoring competitor mentions across channels.

• Address quality and safety issues before they become a full-blown product or brand crisis.
