Credo wonderflow what we believe in

With the end of the year approaching, Wonderflow highlights the most notable achievements of the past year.

This year has been tough for everyone with the extraordinary situation of COVID-19. However, at Wonderflow we tried our best to continue to progress and grow as a company. Here, we highlight some of our biggest accomplishments to bring 2020 to a close.

Wonderflow partnered with Microsoft to announce the  integration of Wonderflow technology into Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Voice

Microsoft and Wonderflow launched a partnership to integrate Wonderflow’s capabilities into Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Voice.

The partnership enables Microsoft users to supercharge their Customer Voice dashboard. Through Wonderflow, they can combine their direct customer feedback with analytics gathered from public product reviews on e-commerce platforms. Key aspects of the new integration are:

  • Enriched understanding of customers
  • Easily accessible and simplistic dashboard
  • Increased organizational agility with seamless solutions

 

Omdia recognized Wonderflow as a market challenger and “the best self-service customer analytics platform globally” 

Wonderflow has been named a Market Challenger in the Omdia Market Radar for AI-enabled Experience Management Platforms. The Market Radar Report highlights key aspects of Wonderflow’s platform:

  • Usability and user-friendliness
  • Predictive capabilities
  • Integrating unstructured feedback

Of the 9 global vendors assessed by Omdia in the report, Wonderflow’s ease-of-use for the business users was particularly praised. Wonderflow was the only company with the highest recognition (advanced capability or breadth) in the Self-Service for Business and Technical Users criterion.

Lavazza

Lavazza group boosts customer experience with customer feedback analysis solution from Wonderflow

Lavazza, one of the world’s most important coffee roasters, and Wonderflow announced the renewal of their partnership. Lavazza was originally introduced to Wonderflow through the Italian Food and Beverages program of venture capital company Plug and Play. The partnership fits Lavazza’s focus on selecting the best resources and tools to benefit their customers.

Lavazza’s mission to deliver the best experience to its customers led the company to invest in customer feedback analytics. Since the last quarter, any comment made by customers (such as online reviews) is automatically analyzed through Natural Language Processing (NLP) and used to promote improvements and change. The insights obtained from the data will be used by the company to further increase its customer-centricity by optimizing its product development strategy, its external communication, and its customer service.

DeLonghi
De’Longhi group boosts customer experience with customer feedback analysis solution from Wonderflow

De’Longhi also selected Wonderflow as its feedback analytics platform. The collaboration empowers De’Longhi with actionable insights unveiled from the Voice of the Customer. The learnings will be used to optimize the product development strategy, communication, and customer care, towards a fully customer-centric approach.

De’Longhi is on a mission to deliver the best experience to its customers, and it all starts with understanding their needs. Hence, starting this year, De’Longhi’s customer feedback is interpreted by Wonderflow, using our cutting-edge Natural Language Processing technologies.
