In the report titled “Social Analytics & Intelligence: Converting Contextual to
Actionable Insights,” Hypatia Research cites QuestBack’s solid corporate vision and the
power of its solutions to help organizations utilize social channels for decision support
and engagement as chief among the reasons for its leadership positioning.

“A solid corporate vision on how existing customers might benefit from
state-of-the-art market research, social engagement, social CRM tools and services on a
fully-integrated platform resulted in high scores for QuestBack,” said the report’s author
Leslie Ament, Vice President of Research & Senior Analyst at Hypatia Research. “Notable
among the capabilities demonstrated is the ability for organizations to bring customers
out of Twitter postings into structured feedback patterns via survey links in order to
qualify, identify, or route issues requiring resolution or response. It is this
rules-based business process workflow functionality that empowers organizations to utilize
their social channels for decision support and engagement for value creation.”

“To be named a leader in the social analytics and intelligence space by a respected
firm like Hypatia Research validates what our customers tell us every day — that
QuestBack understands their needs and helps them by delivering a holistic social
engagement solution,” said Ivar Kroghrud, CEO, QuestBack. “We’ve always believed that the
strength of our solutions distinguish us from the competition and this recognition by
Hypatia only underscores our conviction to continue to innovate for our customers.”
