The addition of Steve’s insight and experience not only improves our board, but provides more fuel for our growth as we continue helping the business make sense of the mas-sive volume and diversity of customer feedback and listen better to solve hard problems.”

“I am honored to become a member of the OdinText Board of Directors and look forward to sup-porting the management team during what is sure to be an exciting year ahead,” said Steve Au-gust. “Over nearly 20 years in the insight community, I’ve looked at survey responses as a source of insight at scale that few have been able to figure out. I believe the OdinText team is finally solving this puzzle by helping companies more easily understand and make use of soft data – the thoughts and feelings expressed in things such as survey responses and reviews. Through the power of OdinText’s statistically driven text analytics, decision-makers can under-stand at decision-scale not just the ‘what’ but the ‘why’ as well.”
