LMetric Offers a New and More Effective Way to Collect Customers Feedback

(PRWEB) June 03, 2014

It can work on any Android-operating tablet.

Tablets with LMetric can be placed directly in an office or business. It can also be used for the personnel who work outside of the main building. All they need is a tablet with LMetric so the customer can leave their feedback after the job is done.

The feedback is sent back directly to the server and immediately made visible on the easy-to-read graphs.

Screenshots, sample pictures and registration is available at the official website: https://lmetric.com/en.

LMetric features:

Collecting general feedback (‘Bad’, ‘Average’, ‘Great’).
Adding and customizing questions for the device(s).
Taking pictures of the people who left the feedback (optional).
Associating feedback with certain tasks by requiring a ticket ID.
Collecting feedback anonymously.
Accessing and sending the data through a secure, encrypted, SSL connection.

A study conducted in a company among the early clients of LMetric showed that:

It takes only a second for a customer to provide general feedback.
If the tablet is placed in an accessible location, people will be glad to voice their opinion, yielding statistically representative data.
LMetric was used over a thousand times more than other means to leave feedback:
???? 16.33% left their feedback with LMetric app
???? Only 0.016% left their feedback by other means

Professor Jean-Jacques Lambin in his book ‘Market-Driven Management: Strategic and Operational Marketing’ provided some information that explains how important it is to constantly be aware of the customers’ satisfaction. His data is based on a meta-analysis of 500 polls conducted in Europe within all economic sectors (the average poll size was 300):

Only 2.9% of sales lead to a direct complaint to the company.
Approximately 28.6% of sales lead to an indirect complaint shared with sales personnel, neighbors, friends, etc.
In addition, 9.2% of complaints are never mentioned to anyone.
The probability for a satisfied customer to make another purchase with the company is 91%.
The probability for a customer to return who filed a complaint to the company, but were not satisfied with how the company responded, is 54%.
For the customers who filed a complaint, and were satisfied with how the company responded, the probability is 96% for them to make a future purchase with that company; even more likely than a customer that was satisfied to begin with!

LMetric is currently in a public beta phase and all the features are free of charge.

More Than 7,000 Nonprofits in 120 Communities Gear Up for May 6s Give Local America Largest, Single-Day Charitable Crowdfunding Event Ever

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) April 28, 2014

Twitter, Facebook and other social media along with mobile gadgets are abuzz as 7,000-plus nonprofits in local communities nationwide gear up for and get out the word about Give Local America on May 6, anticipated to be the largest, one-day, charitable, online crowdfunding event to date.

Organized by Kimbia, the leading provider of technology for increasingly popular online giving days, Give Local America celebrates the 100th anniversary of community foundations in the United States and the vital role they play in fostering local philanthropy.

The 24-hour campaign seeks to motivate everyone to donate to his or her favorite causes on May 6 as well as throughout the year. In most of the 120 participating communities, community foundations are promoting and executing the local giving days in collaboration with nonprofits actively involved in the event. Give Local America is expected to transform grassroots philanthropy in the United States by activating a record number of people, including many new donors, to support the hometown charities that make a profound difference in their communities all with just a few mouse clicks.

Give Local America additionally will introduce many nonprofits to the benefits of online donation technology, which can significantly increase fundraising and donor acquisition both perennial needs of charitable groups.

Give Local America is a major stride forward for the nonprofit sector it leverages the proven local giving day model to create a high impact, mid-year, national giving event, said George Stevens, President and CEO, Coastal Community Foundation in Charleston, South Carolina. It will remind Americans to be philanthropic at the local level throughout the year not just during the year-end, holiday season when so many people are planning to donate anyway.

Dan Gillett, CEO, Kimbia, echoed those sentiments. At a time when it is often easier to give internationally than it is to help people and causes in your own community, Give Local America will serve as a catalyst to reignite the spirit of local philanthropy here at home, said Gillett. Key to this effort are our community foundation partners who do a marvelous job of assisting donors by identifying those charities that are having the greatest impact in their local communities.

The successes of Kimbia-powered community giving days such as the 2013 North Texas Giving Day which raised $ 25.2 million in just 17 hours inspired organizers to create Give Local America. The event will also provide a much needed springtime complement to Giving Tuesday a national day of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which was established in 2012 to kick off the annual holiday giving season. Local giving days also enable organizations to recruit a lot of new supporters for some giving days, new donors can represent up to 60 percent of all contributors.

Participating nonprofits range from small organizations to some of the nations best known groups, e.g., Nature Conservancy and Salvation Army. To make participation easy, every community gets a uniquely branded giving day website plus donation forms that can be embedded in under two minutes. Community foundations and nonprofits can provide the forms to their local business partners so they can fundraise, too. Theres also training on social media promotion and capacity building, along with match day toolkits and website-embeddable, real-time leader boards.

So far, participating community foundations and nonprofits have collectively amassed $ 5 million in local community matching funds to encourage more giving and amplify the impact of every dollar raised. Everyone can watch the days progress on the national and community-focused Give Local America websites, which will show all donations as they come in, and they also can track the social media chatter on Twitter and Facebook using the #GiveLocalAmerica hashtag.

Celebrities signed up to support local communities participating in Give Local America include:

????Award-winning actor Kevin Bacon, along with his nonprofit, SixDegrees.org which connects celebrities to local nonprofits to help promote their activities and missions. Bacon is lending support to Give Day Tampa Bay, offering donors an opportunity to win a personalized message from him or an extra $ 1,000 toward their cause.

????Rob Van Winkle, better known at Vanilla Ice. The rapper, actor and TV show host is advocating for the GREAT GIVE in Palm Beach and Martin Counties.

????Allen Toussaint, a two-time Grammy award winner who wrote a jingle for a television PSA promoting GiveNOLA Day, hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation.

Additional metropolitan areas and states taking part in Give Local America as a result of Network for Goods partnership with Kimbia include but are not limited to:

????Los Angeles
????New Haven
????New York
????Portland (Oregon)
????San Diego
????St. Louis
????Washington, D.C.

128 Million U.S. Mobile Subscribers Experience More than Five Dropped Calls A Month, According to First Mobile Call Quality Survey from Rebtel

Stockholm, Sweden & San Francisco, USA (PRWEB) May 03, 2012

Rebtel, the worlds largest mobile VoIP company after Skype, today announced the results from a recent call-quality survey, which polled U.S. mobile users on their experiences with carriers, smartphone devices and communication apps.

According the study, there is plenty of room for improvement among operators and handset manufactures, with approximately 2 out of 5 (39%) mobile users surveyed admitting to having experienced more than 5 dropped calls per month, representative of approximately 128 million subscribers. The study also showed that having a clear call connection is very important to 89% of respondents, with 84% of those claiming they are at least somewhat likely to switch smartphones as a result of poor quality. 78% stated they would be likely to switch carriers due to poor network performance.

The findings of our first call quality survey demonstrate mobile users have high expectations for a clear connection during calls, and with 40% of American mobile users experiencing multiple dropped calls each month, its clear that carriers and handset manufacturers have a long way to go to provide the level of service that customers demand and expect, says Rebtel CEO Andreas Bernstrom.

The following includes a breakdown of the findings from the survey, with a few of the highlights below:

Men Stay Loyal to Voice vs. Women Would Rather Text

????? Men are 90% more likely (38% vs. 20%) to use a mobile VoIP app as an alternative to their carriers regular calling service.

????? Men have a 20% higher response to being very likely to switch smartphones as a result of poor call quality (33% vs. 27% respectively).

????? Women are 47% more likely than men (44% vs. 30%) to use a text messaging service as an alternative to their carriers regular calling service.

iPhone Users Rank Highest in Terms of Customer Loyalty, But Many Would be Willing to Switch Smartphones and Carriers

Among smartphone users, iPhone users ranked last in terms of their likelihood to switch carriers due to poor call quality (81.5%), followed by BlackBerry users (85.0%), then Android users (86.0%). iPhone users were also the least likely group to switch smartphones due to poor call quality, with approximately 30% stating they are not likely to switch as a result of call quality issues, followed by Android (18.7%), BlackBerry (17.5%).

Overall, heres how responses were broken up between iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and U.S. average, when asked whether they are likely or not likely to switch carriers due to poor call quality:

Not likely

iPhone = 18.5%

BlackBerry = 15.0%

Android = 14.0%

*U.S. Average = 15.1% (Representative of 49.5 million wireless subscribers)


Android = 86.0%

BlackBerry = 85.0%

Other = 83.3%

iPhone = 81.5%

*U.S. Average = 84.1% (Representative of 275.8 million wireless subscribers)

Heres how responses were broken up between iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and U.S. average, when asked if they were likely or not likely to switch smartphones due to poor call quality:

Not likely

iPhone = 29.0%

Android = 18.7%

BlackBerry = 17.5%

*U.S. Average = 22.5% (Representative of 73.8 million wireless subscribers)


Android = 81.3%

BlackBerry = 82.5%

iPhone = 71.0%

*U.S. Average = 77.5% (Representative of 254.2 million wireless subscribers)

Exploring Alternatives to Carriers Services

When asked which types of mobile apps respondents were most likely to use as an alternative to their traditional carrier minutes or data plan service, 34% (112M Americans) said they would utilize a text messaging service and 32% (105M Americans) said they would use a mobile VoIP application. Social networking apps ranked third at 18% (59M Americans) followed by instant messaging apps, which garnered 16% (52M Americans) of responses.

Heres how U.S. mobile users responses were broken up by gender, when asked what mobile apps they would use outside of their carrier data plan:

Text messaging app:

Male = 30.6%

Female = 43.6%

U.S. Avg. = 34.1% (Representative of 111.8 million wireless subscribers)

Mobile VoIP app:

Male = 38.3%

Female = 19.6%

U.S. Avg. = 32.0% (Representative of 104.9 million wireless subscribers)

Social networking app:

Male = 17.0%

Female = 17.8%

U.S. Avg. = 17.6% (Representative of 57.7 million wireless subscribers)

Instant messaging app:

Male = 14.1%

Female = 19.2%

U.S. Avg. = 16.3% (Representative of 53.5 million wireless subscribers)

Reasons that Having A Clear Call Quality is Important

Heres a breakdown of the total responses as they pertain to the most relevant reason a clear connection is at least somewhat important.

????? I want to be able to hear my friends, family or significant other better 46.9% (Representative of 154 million Americans)

????? I feel that I pay enough in monthly charges to expect to have a clear connection all the time 42.4% (Representative of 139 million Americans)

????? I need to have a clear connection because work; it helps me to do my job better 6.8% (Representative of 22 million Americans)

????? I need it in case of emergency, if I or someone else is in trouble 3.9% (Representative of 13 million Americans)

Bernstrom continued: Based on the high incidence of respondents who expressed a willingness to switch carriers and devices due to poor call quality, I believe we will continue to see smartphone users turning to alternative means of communication, like IP-messaging and mobile VoIP apps, which are designed to optimize their connections and help realize continued savings on their mobile phone bills.

Rebtels call quality survey was conducted on March 6, 2012 using SurveyMonkey, an online survey service, which polled 992 U.S. mobile users.

*Note: According to the trade organization CTIA, there were approximately 328 million wireless service subscribers in the U.S. in 2011. U.S. Averages are based on all mobile users, including non-smartphone owners.
