SEATTLE, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- CLIENTpulse launches as a lightweight solution to help organizations stay close to their clients and learn where they are excelling and where they need to improve. Outdated online customer satisfaction survey tools were too cumbersome to consistently use, did not send reminder emails, were not optimized for mobile, and had poor reporting and usability. CLIENTpulse streamlines these issues to create a client-driven blueprint on how to improve and which clients to focus on before they jump ship.
Forest Key, CEO of buuteeq describes CLIENTpulse in four simple words, "Clean, simple, actionable. Wow." Too many times, leaders like Mr. Key have marked prospects as "closed" in their customer relationship management (CRM) tool, to then lose visibility on how these accounts are doing once they are passed along to account managers. CLIENTpulse bridges this void by helping leaders maintain a consistent, objective pulse on client satisfaction.
CLIENTpulse CEO, David Niu, states, "Even for our own offering, I craved consistent client feedback to continually improve. However, the online options we used to survey our clients didn't send automated reminders, didn't schedule regular pulses, and didn't present the insights in an easy manner to share within our organization. This helped inspire CLIENTpulse."
To keep CLIENTpulse lightweight, there are only three questions per CLIENTpulse survey:
1. Client Happiness Index (CHI) which is influenced (but not affiliated) by Net Promoter Score® (NPS).
2. Rotating question that focuses on different areas each quarter like retention, service, etc.
3. Suggestion box enabling customers to provide any type of free-form feedback
Due to this simple approach, CLIENTpulse is able to generate extremely high response rates that highlight where organizations should invest their limited time and resources.
Furthermore, after CLIENTpulse users receive their results, they're also able to benchmark it against other companies' outcomes. In addition, invaluable feedback is also passed along in responses that can be used to refine companies' products and services and to refresh marketing materials with testimonials like:
"Your service is great. One feature we would like to see is another 'class' of admin privileges. We would like to give access to view results to our supervisors but for their department only."
Nate Redmond, Partner at Focal Law PLLC adds, "My partner and I have always wanted to get client feedback, and we received great feedback from your CLIENTpulse. It is an impressive service, and we'll happily be a reference and refer the service to others."
Any organization can sign up for a free trial at CLIENTpulse.com. After signing up, they'll be able to see:
- Which clients are at risk
- Which clients are the happiest
- Benchmarks to evaluate their performance against others
- Invaluable client feedback on how to improve

CLIENTpulse gives leaders a constant pulse on how they're doing, which clients are happy, and which are about to jump ship. CLIENTpulse provides objective feedback from clients that informs product development, customer service, sales, and marketing. This new approach to online customer satisfaction surveys rises above other online tools that generate low response rates and are unwieldy to manage on an ongoing basis.
CLIENTpulse, of Seattle WA, is the second offering from TINYhr which was started in 2012 by David Niu, who previously founded NetConversions (sold to "AQNT") and BuddyTV. Niu recently sold everything and traveled around the world with his wife and then-10 month old daughter. Along the way, he interviewed entrepreneurs about best practices and pain points around leadership, culture, and building a successful company. Upon returning, David focused on what he learned from these global business owners to launch TINYpulse in 2012 and now CLIENTpulse.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

DevOps is gaining traction in the federal government – and for good reasons. Heightened user expectations are pushing IT organizations to accelerate application development and support more innovation. At the same time, budgetary constraints require that agencies find ways to decrease the cost of developing, maintaining, and running applications. IT now faces a daunting task: do more and react faster than ever before – all with fewer resources.
