Smart Gammified Customer Feedback Surveys and Analytics

Wyzerr

Wyzerr builds artificial intelligence software for data collection and analytics that look and feel like games. The basis of Wyzerr’s platform is making it as fun, fast, and easy as possible for consumers to provide actionable feedback data, and business stakeholders to understand and use that data to make decisions in real-time. Wyzerr’s ‘Smartforms’ can capture 25 questions in under 60 seconds. Our secret sauce is the machine learning algorithms infused within the platform. Wyzerr smartforms processes feedback in real-time like a human being would, rapidly digesting the information and asking new questions as a human would in a real dialogue. It allows brands to truly understand who their customers really are. What they like, don’t like, what makes them sad, mad, and happy…all in real-time. This machine learning capability makes it possible for every customer to receive a unique feedback questionnaire. There’s no such thing as one-survey-fits-all at Wyzerr.  The data is analyzed in real-time to produce actionable insight around the clock. Instead of complex graphs and pie charts, our insight-based dashboard outputs data on a GPA scale, assigning grades (A, B, C, D, and F) for different key performance indicators. Similar to how progress reports in school advise students on what they should do to improve their grades, Wyzerr's AI component advises business stakeholders what they can do to improve their customer experience. Overtime, and with more feedback data, Wyzerr can also recommend new products and services to be developed, suggest improvements to existing products, identify new trends and upsell opportunities, and advise on the types of market messages to run. It’s essentially a technology to use customers’ feedback to support operational decisions. We offer data science in a box. +MORE

SYNQY Brand Engagement Platform

SYNQY Corporation

SYNQY uses cloud-based technology to transform manufacturers’ brand experiences across their reseller networks. We combine a network of intelligent touch points called SYNQYs (pronounced sync-ee) with a SaaS Brand Engagement Platform that makes it easy to create and manage these SYNQYs. SYNQY’s patent-pending matchmaking technology dynamically associates high impact, manufacturer-provided content with their corresponding products – without the need for custom coding by the retailer. With a single line of code inserted through a retailer's tag management platform, SYNQY solutions automatically identifies which products get rich-media, persuasive content and adds that content next to the correct product at the point of sale. As a result, retailers can roll out the solution in minutes and shoppers will have access to the information they are seeking to make better product purchase decisions. We have proven evidence this works in both low-involvement purchases such as grocery and high involvement products such as generators, stereo equipment and even semiconductors.  SYNQY can be used on dynamically-driven ecommerce retail sites. It can also be used across dealer networks, blogger sites, factory-direct retail sites and public relations.  The SYNQY Brand Engagement Platform is the underlying technology that allows SYNQY to run many retailer/application-specific offerings.  SYNQY has launched SYNQY | PROMOTE, which is an application that delivers rich media promotional content onto loyalty/coupon pages, product listings, product detail pages and independent dealer networks.  SYNQY recently launched SYNQY | SMARTLABEL retailer solution that automatically identifies which products have associated SmartLabel content and adds that content next to the correct product at the point of sale.

Advertising success no longer depends on wide audience exposure, but instead hinges on understanding consumers and effectively communicating with them using precise targeting and measurement.

Rentrak accounts for this increasingly complex marketplace with its unique ability to combine massive amounts of movie and TV measurement information with information about the products viewers buy, the cars they drive and the lifestyles they lead. TV Essentials: Providing television measurement from more than 37 million screens and approximately 17 million households across the country, Rentrak is the trusted source for networks, agencies and advertisers, delivering the most precise and reliable TV ratings all day, every day across the largest media landscape.

Pirc

Pirc

Pirc is reinventing one of the most important, if not the most important, pre-shop experiences for consumers of household/grocery goods – the weekly sales circular ($15B spend, 290B prints/yr). With 95% of all US commerce transactions occurring in-store, and the weekly circular driving a core % of those transactions, the circular has unbelievably received little to no real innovation – until now. While digital circulars are not new, Pirc is uniquely positioned to personalize and aggregate multi-store circulars and coupons, and ultimately create a Big Data brand engagement and promotion platform that scales. Today, Pirc delivers to consumers a weekly “Pircular”, or personalized circular, full of all the in-store weekly sales and coupons they actually want. At scale, we will have a database of consumers and their favorite brands which will give us a platform on which to build a more efficient, innovative marketing channel; also helping to displace the 70% of total marketing budget retailers spend on circulars today. We plan to monetize this service at scale primarily via an AdWords-type model, starting with native ad placements by brands and retailers. +MORE

With 78% of the US adult population on, at least, 1 social media platform, it is safe to say that social media is an excellent way to reach consumers. The fascinating thing about social media marketing is that retailers are no longer the sole creator of content for their stores; user reviews, photos and comments have become more important to other consumers. Customers are deeply influenced by what other people write online about their shopping experiences.  Eighty-­five percent of shoppers say that they read online reviews for local businesses. Whether on a large review site, a social media platform or a niche site, people are talking about your store. It’s vital that your business listens in on this conversation so you can respond appropriately, when necessary.
