Salt Lake City, UT, April 29, 2017 –(PR.com)– CloudCherry, the SaaS-based Omni-channel Customer Experience Management (CEM) platform announced today that they are powering the Voice Of Customer (VOC) efforts for the University of Essex. The University will be using the platform to capture Student feedback at key areas within the campus, namely their food outlets and sport centres.

Prior to CloudCherry, the University gained feedback from their students on emails and on paper. But the food courts and the sports centres attract massive amounts of users so collecting feedback via traditional methods was proving to be impractical.

Since the implementation of CloudCherry, the University has been successful in gathering data more easily and effectively. It has allowed University of Essex administrators to understand the students’ perception of current levels of service and to make changes based on this feedback. This has translated into better customer satisfaction scores.

“Students are our main customers so it is imperative that they are completely satisfied with the services they receive,” said Lola Adebiyi, Project & Compliance Officer of University of Essex. “CloudCherry has addressed our main challenge of quick, efficient feedback collection and management. We are completely satisfied with the CloudCherry support team as they are always there for support and all our queries are quickly looked into and reviewed.” “Education is a significant investment and our expectations are rightly high for the institutions we attend,” said Vinod Muthukrishnan, CEO of CloudCherry. “We love working with the University of Essex because of their obsession with the student experience. CloudCherry is pleased to be a small part of a great institution’s value proposition.”
