CustomerCountSM   Adds Text Analytics to More Fully Support Business Intelligence  

New Reporting Component Takes Unstructured Data Verbatim Comments and Creates Sentiment Analysis

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (August 1, 2016) – CustomerCountSM, the online customer feedback management system, has teamed with Montreal based-Keatext, to incorporate the option of text analytics into its popular system.

“By capturing unstructured data and reporting it in a structured format, businesses can determine which words and phrases are used most often and– in what context,” says Bob Kobek, President of CustomerCount.  “We teamed with Keatext not only because of its ease of use and seamless integration into our existing platform—but also because we share the same philosophy of continually improving the customer experience thereby ensuring greater customer engagement.”

CustomerCount will use the new enhancement for text categorization, text clustering, concept/entity extraction, production of granular taxonomies, sentiment analysis and  document summarization. In simple terms explains Kobek “the process ‘sees’ patterns within comments on the survey and then evaluates and interprets the output.”

Charles-Olivier Simard, Vice President of Keatext says “We are extremely pleased that CustomerCount has selected us as their partner.  They understand that there is a gold mine of important information in people’s verbatim comments. Keatext will help them unlock that valuable feedback and make it easy to translate into actionable items to improve customer experience.”

“Our goal is to embrace a fully engaged customer who is satisfied and loyal to a product or service.  A tool that taps into language nuances is a substantial asset in this quest,” adds Kobek.

CustomerCountSM  Express Permission Solution Makes FCC Compliance Easy

Uses Legal “Opt-In” Language Required by Government

INDIANAPOLIS (September 9, 2015) –CustomerCount℠ online enterprise customer feedback management system has added another feature to its popular customer engagement software systems. The CustomerCount Express Permission uses the proven CustomerCount online stable platform to reach out to existing customers to gain their express permission to call, satisfying the TCPA requirements.

New FCC Declaratory rulings make calling customers increasingly difficult.  Millions of dollars in fines are being levied by the FTC and the FCC forcing contact centers to gain “express consent” to use any type of auto dialer equipment.

According to Bob Kobek, President of Mobius Vendor Partners creator of CustomerCount “fines are now up to $16,000 per incident and contact centers are losing all control over contacting their existing customers.  Many of these companies are being forced back into manually dialing their customer lists, or not contacting them at all.”

The solution, which employs all the legalese necessary to make it official, can be used to call both land and cell phone lines as well as those customers who have placed their name on national and state Do Not Call registry.  “We use the same ‘Opt-In’ language required by the FCC and provided to us by our attorneys.  Given the robust nature of our 24/7 reporting capabilities, the Express Permission solution provides a strong defense against those ‘serial litigators’ who sit and wait for the phone to ring and then start class action suits.”

He explains that the CustomerCount system is simple to design, launch and maintain.  “We do all the heavy lifting.  Compared to the cost of not contacting existing customers and the potential fines that can incur make the costs of the CustomerCount Express Permission solution implementation is very inexpensive.”

Originally developed for the timeshare industry, CustomerCount Enterprise Feedback Management system collects and measures customer feedback through branded, customized surveys formulated to measure the quality of the entire customer experience by tracking and reporting on all Key Performance Indicators from sales and contact center experiences as well as product experience. Its flexibility to gain input from customers for any “touch point” is one element of its strength.

“Since we integrated the technology to make CustomerCount compatible with smartphones and tablets, the evolution to Express Permission Technology was a natural development,” said Kobek.

Mobius Vendor Partners,   an Indianapolis-based company that provides business process design, management and performance improvement services to companies, associations and non-profit organizations developed the system for a major client and now makes the platform and services available to companies throughout the world in over 30 languages.

Kobek says he will be demonstrating the recent updates to the CustomerCount system, including both the Opt-In software capabilities at various industry conferences including CRDA, PACE, TBMA and ARDA Fall Conference in Washington, DC in mid-November.

“Of course we give online demonstrations, but nothing beats a face-to-face meeting to understand the full value of all the bells and whistles of our user-friendly system.”
