Q: Tell us more about Natural Insight’s technology.
Delivered via the cloud with a rich yet simple mobile optimized HTML5 interface, Natural Insight is a workforce management platform loved as much by end-users as it is by IT administrators. Just as Salesforce disrupted the CRM market, and Workday disrupted the ERP market, Natural Insight is delivering new easy-to-implement innovation disrupting the $500 million+ market for WFM in the retail vertical.
Q: How has the market received your solution?
In less than a year, our cloud platform has delivered service to retail workers equipped with more than 500 different types of mobile devices. During the same period, the percentage of mobile traffic on Natural Insight has increased from 17% to 40% -- and soon more than 50% of our traffic will be originating from retail workers equipped with mobile devices. This translates to tens of thousands of unique visits. As smartphones and tablets continue to proliferate into the retail work environment, enterprise customers will insist that cloud-based solutions be fully optimized for any and every type of mobile device and be elegantly designed for end-user satisfaction.
Q: How is Natural Insight unique to clients?
Legacy retail workforce management solutions have been designed to meet corporate IT requirements -- NOT end user requirements. Natural Insight does the exact opposite. We combine persuasive design and gamification into an elegant HTML5 interface that literally makes it easy for in-store employees to do their job. As a result, our retail customers collect better data from in-store employees, leading to better business decisions and improved profit margins.
Q: How is Natural Insight unique to your industry?
Natural Insight gives merchandisers, retailers and product companies an unprecedented ability to create, assign, execute and measure tasks across a vastly distributed workforce -- and with the highest quality results.
The NVTC’s nomination of Natural Insight for mobile innovation comes on the heels of the company announcing record revenues, unprecedented customer growth and the addition of senior executive talent to further scale the business.
