Live Chat Feature Added to Online Community Platform Civicom Chatterbox®
GREENWICH, CT USA October 17, 2017
Leading market research solutions provider Civicom is announcing the launch of a new live chat feature for its online community platform solution, Civicom Chatterbox®.
Civicom Chatterbox® is an online bulletin board solution that market researchers can use to facilitate asynchronous discussions. Moderators can set up various activities on the platform and participants can use text, image, audio, and video responses to participate in discussions over an extended period of time. The platform’s robust data collection, gamification, analysis and reporting tools empower moderators in gaining valuable insights from a thorough and in-depth research experience throughout the project period.
The latest enhancement implemented on Civicom Chatterbox® is the live chat activity, where moderators can connect with respondents on a specific date and time. Researchers can use this as an activity for engaging with participants in real-time using text, images, videos, and even poll questions. For targeted discussions, project managers or moderators can opt to chat with only a specific segment or number of participants that are involved in the active project. When a chat session has concluded, researchers can generate Excel transcripts, word clouds, and poll results from the platform for analysis and reporting.
Civicom Chatterbox now gives moderators the opportunity for real-time live chat with participants during an asynchronous online research study.
The integration of this feature makes Chatterbox an ideal one-stop platform for both asynchronous and synchronous discussions, providing researchers the advantage of engaging with participants in a more seamless and structured research experience all within the Chatterbox platform. This is an advantage to researchers because it eliminates the hassle of having to direct participants to another tool to engage with them in a live chat discussion.
The new live chat feature is only one of many in an already robust online community research platform of Civicom Marketing Services.
