Company achieves outstanding customer growth, reaches new heights in technology and continues to drive the CX industry

New York, NY, Oslo, Norway and London, UK, March 28, 2018 Confirmit closed out 2017 with an exceptional year of achievements, most notably securing a record number of new customers and continuing relationships with long-standing accounts. Companies such as BuzzBack, ICM Direct, LexisNexis, Mathematica, RS Components and Virgin Money are among the organizations entering 2018 with Confirmit. As a company focused on customer engagement, Confirmit led by example in 2017, furthering its momentum by listening to its customers and implementing the feedback they’ve shared. As a result, Confirmit rolled out innovative new products and technology to better serve their customers’ needs, appointed new leaders and achieved several awards along the way.

Ken Ă˜streng, President and CEO said “2017 was a strong new business year for Confirmit, and most importantly has put us in an excellent position for an exceptional 2018. I’m particularly pleased that we achieved double-digit growth in the dynamic Asia-Pacific market. It’s also gratifying to note that scores of clients signed multi-year contracts to secure Confirmit as a long-term partner. We rounded out the year with the company’s largest sales quarter in our history for Q4 which is a real testament to our continued innovation”.

 

Technology Milestones

In the past year, Confirmit has launched new and enhanced technologies exemplifying their commitment to providing the latest and most innovative products to their customers. In 2017, the company launched Confirmit Survey Designer, an intuitive survey creation tool that removes the complexity of advanced survey generation and enables questionnaires to be created in half the time of competing solutions.

Perhaps most notably, Confirmit reacted to 2017’s growing need for more precise and enhanced analytics that can make smarter, faster decisions by releasing Version 23 of award-winning Confirmit Horizons. With Version 23 of Confirmit Horizons, the company offered new machine-learning powered text analytics in Confirmit Genius, and powerful new features in Confirmit SmartHub. These enhancements contribute to more advanced hierarchy management, respondent upload and feedback source mapping, making it clear as to why. Below are some additional impressive figures regarding Confirmit Horizons.

  • Over 1,500,000,000 surveys have been completed on the platform since 2010
  • 25,000,000 text fields were processed through Confirmit Genius in 2017
  • More than 10,000,000 CAPI (face to face) interviews were completed on the Horizons platform during the year.
     

In addition, 4,000,000 CATI (telephone) interviews took place across the SaaS and On-Premise platforms, driven by a 125% increase in use of CATI in Australia. This growth is supported by Confirmit’s continued investment in its CATI solutions, a critical area for many of the company’s Market Research clients.

Confirmit Go, an app for business users who need easy, on-the-go access to case management using Confirmit Action Management, was released in tandem with Version 23 of Confirmit Horizons.

Alongside these new innovations Confirmit’s software has been successfully audited for SOC2 compliance, and it is prepared for the upcoming General Data Protection Directive (GDPR).

“We have worked closely with Confirmit on our CX program for several years and the results have been significant both in terms of Net Promoter Score® and overall impact on the business” explains Linette Myland, Manager, Customer Excellence at Siemens Corporation. “We’ve been able to take advantage of many of Confirmit’s constantly-evolving capabilities, including text analytics, and our partnership with the team at Confirmit is critical to the work we do to ensure Siemens offers an excellent and consistent customer experience in every phase of the customer journey”.
