The latest release of the Sparq platform expedites customer profiling, engagement, and feedback analysis to help Vision Critical customers unlock market insight.”

Text Analytics & Sentiment Analysis

Using machine learning, Text Analytics & Sentiment Analysis automatically analyzes open-ended feedback (such as survey comments) to reveal measurable, actionable insights. These new features include:

Starring and Tagging: Auto tag, highlight, and search responses to quickly identify common themes and rapidly uncover relevant insights. Sentiment Analysis: Automatically detect positive, negative, or neutral sentiment with over 90 percent accuracy. Visualizations: Generate reports on tags and sentiment using various visualization tools including graphs and word clouds.Share insights with customers and stake holders with one-click. Quote Reporting: Easily add customer feedback in the customer’s own words to reports.

"At GoDaddy, strategic and actionable customer insight is in high demand by all internal stakeholders to improve the user experience. We know that the best way to access it is through open-ended feedback from our customers, but the time and manual effort required to identify data in individual responses hinders our ability to deliver insight quickly to our stakeholders," said Cassie Mally, Director of UX Research at GoDaddy. “With Vision Critical’s new Text Analytics and Sentiment Analysis, we’re able to analyze feedback, create visualizations, and share it in a timely manner, enabling us to make smarter, more customer-centric decisions.”
