Industries of Expertise
As data-focused customer experience experts, we’ve worked with hundreds of customers across a variety of industries to improve brand loyalty, operational efficiency, and profitability.
We’ve been customer experience fanatics and mystery shopping experts for over 25 years, providing our clients with the focused operational insights needed to keep their business flourishing. Our experience helping companies has resulted in long-term partnerships that ensure training measures and service initiatives are consistently evaluated, providing customer satisfaction and retention.
Ways to Segment Your Data
What Makes Us Different?
We work with our clients to craft evaluations that help them measure their specific brand standards, explore all aspects of their operations, and provide an unbiased, real-time view, of how their business operates.
Mystery Shopping Experts
With all of the focus on artificial intelligence and machine learning, it is easy to forget that there is no better assessment of sentiment, emotion, and empathy than human intelligence. We are mystery shopping experts, and we leverage our national network of independently contracted mystery shop evaluators to assess our clients’ businesses from the viewpoint of a true customer who is knowledgeable of their brand standards.
Data should tell a story, and the story becomes the path forward, with a clear beginning, middle and end. We focus on building quality stories that help our clients understand how their operation is performing today and how to move forward collectively, while bettering their brand along the way.
