January 11, 2012, Boulder, CO — Independent software company’s focus on customer happiness drives fast growth
SurveyGizmo, a privately-owned online survey software company, reached a milestone when 200 million surveys were completed during 2011. This equates to nearly 580,0000 online surveys being completed every day using its online software application. SurveyGizmo’s enterprise-class online survey software allows customers to create and distribute online customer satisfaction surveys, market research surveys, online job applications, and virtually any type of form used to collect data online.
SurveyGizmo customers include Fortune 1000 consumer and business-to-business companies, as well as smaller companies, researchers, non-profit organizations and educational institutions. The company relies on customer word of mouth and sales have grown 278% in the past three years with little marketing. Its investment in its Customer Support team is well above the software industry standard.
“Our customers drive everything we do at SurveyGizmo, and it’s fair to say we’re a little fanatical about keeping each one of our customers happy,” says CEO Christian Vanek. “The insight we get from our customers every day guides product design. They give us feedback and ideas for new features we had never considered; I believe our customer relationships have become our competitive advantage.”
In 2007 customers began asking SurveyGizmo customer support representatives how to pull their survey data into their own databases or CRMs, and the company responded by developing the SurveyGizmo Restful API. Few online survey tools have an API, and none have one as robust.
“Today customers rely on online software to do business, but they’ve come to expect poor customer service from online companies. Our customers are surprised by the personal attention they get when they call and talk to us. Our growth proves that being committed to making customers happy is just good business,” says Vanek. In 2012 SurveyGizmo will create powerful integrations with dozens of companies so customers can do even more with their surveys and their data, and SurveyGizmo’s open platform and API make this easy to do.
