Verint Systems announced that it has extended its Customer Engagement Optimization portfolio through its acquisition of OpinionLab, a leader in continuous voice of the customer listening solutions that drive smarter, real-time digital engagement. OpinionLab solutions are used by world-leading brands to optimise web and mobile customer experiences and engagement.
Voice of the Customer (VoC) solutions are becoming a strategic imperative, helping organisations measure and enhance experiences, satisfaction and loyalty. As more customer engagements follow a “digital-first” approach for conducting research and performing transactions, as well as solving problems, companies need to measure their customers’ digital experiences and quickly act on those insights to enhance both the customer experience and business performance.
Complete Single-Vend or Solution for Measuring and Acting on the Voice of the Customer
Through its acquisition of OpinionLab, a leader in customer-initiated digital channel VoC, Verint has extended its award-winning Customer Engagement Optimization portfolio to now include the ability to measure and act on digital customer experiences in-the-moment. With this addition, Verint has broadened its capabilities for listening, analysing and acting on the VoC across all channels— digital, voice, text and social.
“Customer experience is a centrepiece of CenturyLink’s strategy and critical to how we measure success,” explains Derek Koecher, senior vice president, corporate strategy and business development, CenturyLink. “As our customers continue to engage us across channels, our combined Verint and OpinionLab solutions will enable us to measure and act even more effectively on their experiences throughout the customer journey.”
Together, Verint and OpinionLab are committed to helping organisations benefit from actionable intelligence across all engagement channels and harnessing the VoC to better anticipate and take action, deliver consistent, personalised service, foster seamless transitions from digital to other service channels, and connect the complete customer journey.
“Capturing, analysing and acting on the voice of the customer are critical for any organisation in any industry,” says Verint’s Elan Moriah, president, Customer Engagement Solutions. “With the OpinonLab combination, we’re taking voice of the customer to a new level by giving organisations a complete solution for improving the customer experience across engagement channels.”
Adds Moriah, “OpinionLab is a great addition to our Customer Engagement Optimization portfolio, and we’re delighted to welcome its employees and customers into the Verint family.”
“OpinionLab is very pleased to join forces with Verint, a market leader in customer engagement that shares a vision for the importance of listening to customers on their terms, and responding quickly and effectively on the feedback they share,” notes Sean Fallon, CEO, OpinionLab. “Now, if a customer can say it, write it or click it, Verint and OpinionLab voice of the customer solutions can collect, analyse and enable organisations to take action on it.”
