We help clients discover the meaning behind the words

Surveys, customer relationship management (CRM) systems, interactive voice response (IVR) systems, social media data, and other types of feedback systems create massive amounts of unstructured data (voice and text). Most of this data is never fully analyzed or understood.

At Nuance, a Decision Analyst® company, we help companies extract, understand, and quantify the meaning of verbatim comments (answers to open-ended questions or prompts).

Very often a well-crafted, open-ended question could take the place of 10 to 20 closed-end questions. The open-ended question could reveal what we (the survey creators) did not know. The rise of open-ended questions injected a qualitative element into quantitative surveys and made surveys more effective in revealing the truth.
