In this Topical Zoom episode, I speak with Hannah Chaplin, CEO & Co-founder of Receptive, a Product Demand Intelligence for SaaS companies, about data and customer feedback.
Customer feedback is a very important aspect of any product (or service). That said, the lack of action (or inaction) on customer feedback is one of the most common challenges Product Managers face. It seems like this inaction can be due to various reasons. In this episode, I speak with Hannah Chaplin, whose company makes tools for managing “intelligence” around the product. I ask her 3 questions:
- to understand how she thinks about decision making (on feedback)
- prioritizing feedback, and
- strategies to manage customer feedback.
So, If you’ve had experience handling customer feedback, do chip-in with a comment about your experience. If you haven’t, I urge you to listen in.
