Confirmit leads with technological developments, greater global reach, and industry
Confirmit, the leading global solutions provider for Voice of the Customer (VoC), Voice of the Employee and Market Research (MR) is poised to enter 2020 with enhanced technology, greater global alignment, and top industry recognition to meet the evolving needs of its global client base.
As part of its focus on meeting the technological, security and compliance needs of a global client base, Confirmit will launch a new Horizons Cloud environment in Germany, based on Microsoft Azure, by the end of 2019. This adds to Confirmit’s existing SaaS and Cloud environments currently available in the UK, US, Australia and Canada, and ensures that Confirmit’s customers are able to store their data in compliance with increasingly stringent data localisation laws and regulations.
“The progress and implementations we’ve made this year directly reflect the increasing pace of the industry, particularly in terms of our clients’ progressively global needs,” said Ken Østreng, CEO of Confirmit. “We’ve prioritised the ability to deliver world-class products and solutions to our clients, giving them the enhanced ability to make smarter, faster decisions and deliver even better business outcomes.”
Driving Customer Success:
Throughout 2019, Confirmit achieved several exciting milestones, particularly for its global MR clients – from the launch of new MR capabilities to the renewal and creation of innovative partnerships:
- Technology Solutions:
o In September, Confirmit announced its latest release of its comprehensive, industry leading software platform, Confirmit Horizons, to offer MR organisations greater field reporting, management and usability capabilities.
- Customer News: Confirmit celebrated its clients through its two awards programmes dedicated to recognising excellence in customer experience and Market Research:

Confirmit also welcomed many new Market Research clients from around the world, and extended partnerships with existing businesses, including; CloudXink, Lieberman Inc., Integral Research, KS&R, and Userneeds.
A Partner for Success:
Confirmit has continued building on its reputation as a trusted partner to businesses committed to using customer experience initiatives to drive wider business success. It has aligned its global consulting team under the leadership of the recently promoted Chris Brown, VP, Global CX Consulting, adding new CX consultants in the UK, US and Australia. The team is dedicated to using their vast experience to work as a close partner with clients, proving clear guidance and best practices to avoid common pitfalls in the CX journey.
“Many B2B organisations overuse customer loyalty surveys, often relying on a small number of data points or a few of their most vocal customers’ opinions to create a strategy,” said Lisa Nakano, Service Director, Customer Engagement Strategies, SiriusDecisions. “Although these relationship surveys are valuable for understanding the loyalty of a customer base, they should not be the only component of a customer insights programme. It is vital that businesses integrate and map business data from multiple sources, using surveys to fill in the gaps where only the Voice of the Customer can provide the insight required to make smart, customer-focused decisions.”
Events, Awards and Recognition
Confirmit hosted a range of successful events around the world this year, including a global roadshow in NYC, London and Sydney focused on using insight to drive business success. Hundreds of people attended the events titled “Evolution or Revolution: The Road to Rock Stardom” to hear from industry leaders, analysts, and Confirmit experts. The roadshow was part of Confirmit’s commitment to be a partner and enabler of insight-driven success.
