Leading Customer Experience Management Firm, Mindshare, Announces Historic Financial, Transactional and Publishing Milestones

Mindshare Technologies, the leading provider of real-time customer and employee feedback solutions, today announced that it just completed its 60th consecutive month of increasing revenues – dating back to March 2003. Mindshare uses a SaaS (Software as a Service) subscription model, where its clients essentially “lease” its software, paying a minimal software “rental” fee each month – (similar to the way cable TV and cell phones are billed.) Mindshare’s customer feedback application can be up and running in days, with no software or hardware for clients to install.

The company is also pleased to announce that it recently collected its 20 millionth customer survey. Mindshare services clients in over 25+ industries, providing its clients with actionable information that they can use to immediately improve their operations. Leading corporations like Hertz, Papa Murphy’s, Firestone, Sizzler, Tony Roma’s and Marriott use Mindshare’s Enterprise Feedback Management system on a global basis to improve their operations each day. The company collects feedback from 67 countries in 14 languages.

Mindshare is also pleased at the wide acceptance its Chairman and President Richard D. Hanks has received for his book, “Delivering and Measuring Customer Service.” The book has steadily moved up on book site rankings. “Endorsements from the press and from business leaders have been very encouraging,” said Rich Hanks. Examples include: -0-
