PALO ALTO, Calif.- October 28, 2008 --Attensity™, the leader in text analytics software for First Person Intelligence™, today announced that JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ:JBLU) has selected the company’s successful Voice of the Customer (VoC) software solution to rapidly and accurately analyze customer feedback stored in unstructured text formats such as call center notes, email messages, weblogs and other customer communications.
JetBlue is currently deploying Attensity’s software in its customer service organization after a highly successful pilot project demonstrated the unparalleled ability to find key information about customer sentiment, as well as tangible data around how to augment its services. JetBlue will use Attensity’s software to proactively manage and analyze all freeform customer feedback to improve service, marketing, sales and the products they offer.
JetBlue customer service analysts will use Attensity’s solutions on a daily basis to cull insights and actions from customer feedback. “Attensity Voice of the Customer offers us the unprecedented ability to automatically extract customer sentiments, preferences and requests we simply wouldn’t find any other way,” Bryan Jeppsen, JetBlue research analyst, said. “Attensity enables us to intelligently structure, search and integrate the data into our other business intelligence and decision-making systems. Mining readily available information quickly keeps us better informed of our customers’ desires and requests, and helps us truly understand the customer better than anyone else.”
Attensity Voice of the Customer (VoC) employs the company’s patented Exhaustive Extraction™ technology to automatically identify facts, opinions, requests, trends, and trouble spots from the unstructured text of survey responses, service notes, email messages, Web forums, blog entries, news articles and other customer communications. Unlike programs that require manual tagging, sorting, classifying or other upfront effort Attensity VoC automatically extracts valuable data from written feedback to provide analysts and managers deeper insights into customer satisfaction, sentiment and loyalty. Attensity VoC can also reveal specific product and service issues, reactions to marketing and public relations efforts, and even buying signals.
“JetBlue’s commitment to customer service is legendary,” Craig Norris, Attensity’s CEO, said. “This purchase validates the value of Attensity VoC in helping companies hear their customers’ feedback, as well as taking appropriate action. We’re excited at the opportunity to demonstrate how our solutions support the world-class customer service initiatives JetBlue has launched.”
