Vovici™, a Verint® Systems company and leading provider of voice of the customer and enterprise feedback management (EFM) solutions, today announced that Turnkey Intelligence, a leader in the business of sports and entertainment, selected its EFM solution in September 2011, and is now in the process of deploying the software to power its Turnkey Surveyor suite of market research services.
“We’re a full service firm that’s drastically changing the research paradigm,” states Haynes Hendrickson, president of Turnkey Intelligence. “Sports and entertainment is so fluid; our clients often want to quickly run their own research projects in-house. We stand alone as a full service research firm that’s embracing this approach and encouraging our clients to incorporate self-service into their research mix, using Vovici’s world-class software.”
Vovici software, which is part of the Verint Voice of the Customer Analytics™ portfolio, helps forward-thinking organizations benefit from a single-vendor solution set for voice of the customer (VoC) initiatives across surveys, voice recordings, email, chat and social media. Using the comprehensive VoC Analytics solution, enterprises can interpret customer feedback in the context of business objectives and quickly act upon it to drive change that results in improved customer experiences. With this approach, Turnkey can enable its clients to better understand the total customer experience, drive satisfaction, optimize operations and increase revenue.
“Turnkey has strong industry expertise and has been a reliable partner for our league and clubs for many years,” notes Alicia Rankin, director of research and fan insights at the National Football League (NFL). “Integrating that expertise directly into Vovici’s software in the form of industry-specific survey templates and report templates gives clubs a needed head start when designing their own research projects.”
Mark DiMaurizio, vice president of technology solutions at Comcast-Spectacor adds,“Turnkey is a valued research partner of Comcast-Spectacor and the Flyers & 76ers, and a real innovator. The Turnkey/Vovici pairing is great because now any of our properties can get self-service and full service all from a single source and store all research results across time in a single place. Turnkey has created a seamless, cost-effective suite of custom research solutions.”
“We chose Vovici because it’s a powerful analytics engine that’s incredibly easy to use,” explains Steve Seiferheld, senior vice president of consumer research at Turnkey. “In sports and entertainment, whether you are a property, brand or agency, you need a constant flow of fresh, insightful information. Vovici gives us and our clients an easy way to organize, analyze and manage that information.”
“Vovici is delighted to have partnered with Turnkey to empower such iconic organizations as the NFL, NBA, MLS, MLBAM, IMS, Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins, World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals and dozens upon dozens of other high profile clients,” says Dave Capuano, vice president of marketing at Vovici. “Producing deep metrics that are also easy to understand is no easy task, but integrating our software with Turnkey’s industry knowledge will certainly help monetize information and make it immediately actionable.”
