mSurvey prides itself on being able to access to high-quality data from hard-to-reach communities via in-depth, mobile phone conversations.
“We’re excited to be expanding into the Nigerian market, and capturing the daily consumer experiences of Africa’s most populous country. In Kenya, we’ve seen many of our partner companies see an increase in sales, having used one of our products to better understand their customers. The question we are asking, and subsequently working with our clients to answer, is: how can you attract and retain your valued customers if you don’t know how they feel about your product or service?" said Dr. Kenfield Griffith Ph.D., CEO, and co-Founder at mSurvey.
Since launching in 2012, mSurvey has worked with companies such as Safaricom, Java House Africa, KCB (Kenya Commercial Bank), Britam Insurance, Digicel (Trinidad and Tobago)].
"Nigeria is a tantalizing market for us to expand into; we know that Nigerians like to voice their opinions and give honest feedback - but all too often, companies and brands aren’t able to capture this feedback in a meaningful or indeed tangible way, so they are unable to reconfigure their business practices to fit with their customers’ requirements. This is where mSurvey can help - by enabling our customers to ask the right questions and speak directly to consumers, we can ensure that our clients can listen to and get really get to know their customers. In an ever competitive market, knowing how to retain your customers is critical to any company’s growth." concluded Dr. Griffith.
