Whether you think it is a force for good or a threat to humanity, today’s AI offers a glimpse of tomorrow’s world.

Over time, humans have successfully shifted workload to machines—from steam-hammers to spaceships. No-one ‘drives’ the SpaceX CrewDragon; they have better, and more enjoyable things to do. In tomorrow’s world, much of today’s work will also shift to machines. Shuffling spreadsheets, sifting and sorting thousands of rows of data, will be a distant memory.

Yet for many VoC teams in the present, struggling to analyze huge volumes of unstructured data from social sources such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and more, combined with email, chat, surveys and NPS… life feels almost pre-industrial!

Not only is the sheer scale of the task daunting, it’s also unpredictable. In the sign-up world, a new service can grow from a few tens of users to tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands, in a matter of months. For example, Zoom reached 400,000 users by the end of its first month. Founder Eric Yuan is famous for saying he does not consider competitors, he only listens to customers.

In high-growth scenarios, where customer feedback drives product development and growth, manual VoC won’t cut it. The only way to handle explosive growth, huge volume, and the torrent of data, is to switch to Programmatic VoC.

Programmatic VoC is the continuous collection, organization, and analysis of feedback on your product or service, designed to help you use data to understand customer sentiment and steer strategic growth and development. Programmatic VoC deploys defined processes, brings order to the chaos, and scales up without breaking the bank.
