SAN MATEO, Calif. and AMSTERDAM—April 3, 2019—SurveyMonkey (Nasdaq: SVMK), a leading global survey software company, announced today it has completed its acquisition of Usabilla, a leading global Voice of Customer (VoC) technology provider. Usabilla empowers 450 enterprises in 35 countries, including global brands like Lufthansa, Philips, and Vodafone to collect, analyze and act on real-time user feedback to improve their products and customer experiences. The acquisition complements SurveyMonkey’s existing enterprise solutions to deliver a truly comprehensive Customer Powered Data portfolio.
“We welcome Usabilla’s team, product, and customers as we begin a new chapter at SurveyMonkey–one where we have an enhanced enterprise-grade product offering, wider geographic footprint, and stronger go-to-market channel,” said Zander Lurie, chief executive officer of SurveyMonkey. “Usabilla’s deep expertise helping top global brands improve their products and customer experiences is perfectly aligned with our mission, and together, we will deliver significant value to our enterprise customers and shareholders.”
“To put the customer at the center and make smarter business decisions, more firms are leveraging VoC technologies to get to rich, meaningful, and contextual insights,” said Faith Adams, senior analyst, Customer Experience at Forrester that included Usabilla as a VoC specialist in their 2018 Now Tech report. “Achieving best-in-class customer experience (CX) requires firms to extend their efforts beyond a specific channel or line of business.
