First and foremost: the platform itself is brilliant, its extremely user friendly and flexible.I use both CX Studio and Designer.
Designer, where all the coding and rules sit is a little more complicated but with a little time getting to know they system I found myself whizzing around it in next to no time.
When they released CX Studio I was over the moon, it's very very good at data visualization. Having the ability to share dashboards, have them update automatically and scheduled exports is fantastic and takes away the need to email your findings to stakeholders.
I find it particularly useful when testing a hypothesis, looking back historically at changes and what is happening real time.
Clarabridge are excellent listeners and are always keen to hear suggestions for improvements and completely new ideas that you really do think are long shot. They have a great knack of providing updates you didn't even know you needed which is always a very pleasant suprise. They are constantly looking to improve what is already a very good platform. I have had a sneak peak at some of the new features for the winter release and i'm very excited for it to land.
The support team are great, they always respond quicker than I expect, their level of knowledge is exceptional.
Ensure you get involved in the initial model build. The person involved must have a good understanding of what customers talk about and in what context. This will save additional work fine tuning the original model. I wish I'd been involved at the beginning. However, it is flexible and easy enough to do the additional work yourself (I did ours)
We are able to highlight real time changes in what customers are talking about when they have been in touch with our customer contact center. We can look back at changes and highlight why results have changed and dig into exactly what is driving it and propose recommendations. We are currently looking to expand the data we input from only survey data to wider sources, such as Live chat transcriptions, complaints data and agent file notes. It's an exciting time and we look forward to seeing the out puts. We envisage it highlighting actual route cause from an internal perspective which then lead to customer dissatisfaction.
