Words from our VP of Software Engineering, Product & Technology: 

“Customer Experience (CX) measurement and analytics is an interesting area. ERP systems have brought order to the back office and CRM systems to the front office. CX is an obvious next area for any company to get organized to provide the ability to effectively measure its impact on company performance, way better than it currently can. 

ForeSee is in a great position to become the standard for CX much in the way SAP is the standard in ERP and in CRM. CX data is compelling.  It is about people’s experiences, something more exciting than business processes or customer records. ForeSee is a long-time leader in CX measurement. We have 15 years of experience. The company has grown 40% year of year growth since its inception in 2001. We have collected 100s of millions of data points on customer experiences 

We are early adopters of technology. Our whole infrastructure is in the cloud. This means for all practical purposes unlimited compute and storage capacity. 

 I am convinced that AI will do to today’s software what Client/Server did to the mainframe in the 90s and SaaS to on premise systems in the 00s. We are investing heavily into all layers of a new Analytics and AI platform. It is based on our cloud infrastructure, uses a standard lambda architecture with several specialized data stores, and handles real-time as well as batch data processing. On top of this, we are building entirely new algorithms and applications to analyze and optimize customer experiences”
