I think Confirmit's customers will be surprised at the level of candor and richness they'll gain through the video open-ends
Denver, CO, Oslo, Norway (PRWEB) June 2, 2008
QualVu and Confirmit (OSE: CONF) today announced the availability of VideoSurvey™ to Confirmit survey customers. Using VideoSurvey™, Confirmit clients can instantly integrate video "open-ends" in any Confirmit-based survey.
"This is a huge advancement in survey research," said John Williamson, CEO of QualVu. "By simply embedding VideoSurvey™, Confirmit clients can now gain rich qualitative 'voice of the consumer' feedback via video. This partnership allows businesses and researchers to benefit through better research insights in a scalable, cost-effective survey environment."
"We are really excited to be the first software provider for the Market Research and Enterprise Feedback Management industry to offer VideoSurvey™," said Pat Molloy, Chief Strategy Officer for Confirmit. "We feel the combined solution gives Confirmit clients a more dynamic survey option than any other firm in our space, and I think this further underscores Confirmit's leadership and commitment to innovation."
Adding a video question to a Confirmit survey is a simple process. Confirmit clients create pre-recorded questions on the QualVu portal, and copy and paste the few lines of embed code directly within the Confirmit survey authoring environment. During the Confirmit survey, respondents can then view video questions and simply press the "respond" button integrated within the application to provide a spontaneous video answer. Respondents also have the option to answer via text-based open-end if they do not have a webcam.
"I think Confirmit's customers will be surprised at the level of candor and richness they'll gain through the video open-ends," added Williamson. "VideoSurvey™ not only allows them to gather qualitative intelligence way beyond text-based options, but video can be downloaded with a click of a button so researchers can include video clips right within their reports. Even if respondents don't have a webcam, they enjoy a more engaging and interesting survey."
QualVu and Confirmit also announced the addition of QualVu to the Confirmit Marketplace, an initiative dedicated to providing Confirmit clients additional value through complementary products and services offered by members.
