Our mission is to empower every business with actionable, customer-centric communication. 

The expectations of the modern consumer are increasing. When we consider a product or service: reliability, usability, and functionality are table stakes. Consumers expect products and services to adapt and evolve with their needs. Modern product organizations are therefore responsible for articulating and validating these needs ahead of time. 

The UserVoice Platform engages your customers early in the discovery process via seamless feedback loops. We help identify which customers are most interested in, and suited for, validating potential shifts in your product strategy. We then measure the impact of a possible need across your entire customer base. 

As needs evolve, UserVoice empowers your team to stay on top of, and effectively answer the “why” well ahead of feature implementation. We believe in engaging in structured customer dialog to validate your direction earlier in the process. 

We’re looking for new talent to bring UserVoice to the next level. We’re actively exploring ways of automatically discerning what your existing customers desire, and how to more effectively close product gaps on what prospective customers want.
