Now to the Fun Stuff
Our organization’s vision is to always launch “TINY” offerings, which are lightweight, easy, and approachable, that delight our customers.
TINYpulse was our first offering that provides clients a pulse on how happy, frustrated, and burnt out their employees are before retention sinks and issues became cancerous. It immediately resonated with hundreds of leaders around-the-world, who cared deeply about improving their organization’s retention, recognition, and results.
Along the way, we received a constant stream of feedback on what other “TINY” offerings our TINYpulse customers wanted. The most popular request was, “We love how we now get a pulse on our company’s most important asset, our people. But can you close the loop and also give us a pulse on our clients?” This became the inspiration for CLIENTpulse.
No more surveys that say you’re 9% complete after page one. No more surveys that aren’t mobile friendly. And no more surveys that aren’t personalized. If this “TINY” approach resonates with you, please take the opportunity to try out CLIENTpulse for free and provide us feedback. Thanks and to happier clients!
