Salesforce Radian6 Insights technologies reshapes the social media monitoring landscape by combining Salesforce Radian6 with leading partners to bring new understanding to social media. The integrated offering allows customers to have a deeper understanding of the who, what, where, and why behind social media conversations. The addition of Clarabridge allows organizations to intelligently gather, transform, and analyze text-based feedback in the fastest possible time.
“Unstructured data continues to hamper an organization’s ability to see the customer engagement big picture,” said Sid Banerjee, CEO, Clarabridge. “The vital role sentiment and text analytics plays in daily operations by drawing synergies between social media and customer sentiment is rarely capitalized on for business intelligence. This partnership marks a shift in how enterprises drill down into their data mining practices to address issues at the microscopic level while establishing a united ecosystem of their numerous information channels.”
“Social enterprises recognize that social media provides real-time opportunities to delight customers and prospects in new ways. Having Clarabridge join the Salesforce Radian6 Insights ecosystem will help companies find true insight into social media conversations,” said Rob Begg, vice president of marketing, Salesforce Radian6.
The Power of Salesforce Radian6 Insights
Traditional methods of sifting through customer insight such as surveys, review sites and social media have spurred the demand for a sophisticated CEM process. Traditional approaches to processing text-intensive social content typically require manual reading and interpreting of the text – which can be time consuming, manpower-intensive, and lacking in analytical rigor. By integrating Clarabridge into the Radian6 Insights platform, users can now more precisely measure, track, and statistically correlate social insights to customer needs and actions, and better understand the impacts of social engagement on business outcomes. Radian6 Insights, together with Clarabridge’s sentiment and text analytics capabilities, fosters collaborative techniques across the organization, providing transparency and accountability to address customer concerns. Companies seeking to merge all output channels and create a comprehensive customer identity will have the power and support of Radian6 Insights to improve reputational and operational posture.
