Share Article

Vovici (voh-VEE-see), the leading provider of Enterprise Feedback Management (EFM), online survey tools and research services, announced the Market Research Edition of its EFM Community product today. Vovici's EFM Community MR is a comprehensive tool that has re-invented the role of the Market Researcher from one of conducting stand-alone studies to one of providing actionable and continuous enterprise-wide feedback for their clients. This solution enables collaboration between marketing research firms and their clients with fully customizable user roles to manage access and sharing, as well as the ability to design questionnaires and fully manage respondent communities together.

EFM Community MR empowers the market research firm to collaborate with their clients throughout the online survey process insuring better results and decision making.

    "Corporations have been doing more and more surveys online without involving traditional research firms. As a result companies have lost control over the quality of the information gathered and the security of the respondent information," said Dean Wiltse, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Vovici. "EFM Community MR empowers the market research firm to collaborate with their clients throughout the online survey process insuring better results and decision making." A leader in the expanding EFM market, Vovici's EFM Community MR enables market research organizations to develop and deploy sophisticated Web-based surveys that are easy and cost-effective to conduct. The 100% Web-based design supports collaboration, workflow management, and role-based security delivering actionable results in real-time.

In conjunction with this product announcement, Vovici recently broadened its long-time relationship with the Nielsen Company, the leading provider of marketing information, audience measurement, and business media products and services, to include the support of constituent feedback for Nielsen's Homescan consumer panel. This panel represents millions of Americans who regularly scan barcodes on purchases and complete surveys to make their opinions count in the consumer marketplace. The design and features of EFM Community MR were driven by Vovici's relationship with Neilsen.

"We have been using Vovici tools for several years and now manage Nielsen's online Homescan panel using the EFM platform," said John Toomey, Senior Vice President, Operations, Nielsen Homescan & Spectra. "Vovici has enabled us to maintain a greater than 70% response rate to our online survey invitations with the sizeable Homescan panel of consumer shoppers."
