QuestionPro, a research project out of Brigham-Young University, is launched. It quickly becomes the leading SaaS-based online market research platform
SurveyAnalytics, LLC is formed by a collaboration between the founders of QuestionPro and a group of private investors. Now completely free from its academic ties, the platform is free to expand beyond online surveys.
MicroPoll.com, an easy to use online polling toll is launched. Expanding the research platform further, MicroPoll gives the power to create one question polls that anyone can embed on their website.
qSample.com is launched, providing a population of online respondents for market research professionals to purchase high quality sample.
The questionpro team begins to experiment with techniques for developing quantitative analysis techniques to qualitative or open-ended feedback. A new question type is developed using a simple up/down voting technique. IdeaScale is born into a full fledged application, and a company is spun off in its name.
Barak Obama is sworn in as president. His first order of business is to launch an open government initiative. IdeaScale is chosen to provide citizen feedback for 23 federal agencies as part of this.
IdeaScale continues to leverage the security and feature suggestions it receives from the government sector and applies it to their Enterprise offering. Avid, Xerox, SAP, Wired Magazine, Choice Hotels, and many more Fortune 500 companies roll out idea campaigns using the platform.
President Obama again calls upon IdeaScale, this time to implement the 2010 Save Award: a personal challenge to every government employee to come up with the best idea for saving money and cutting government waste.
our success with ideascale led to the discovery of a problem our customers had: increasing the level of engagement between employees/stakeholders and the organization. We solved this problem by creating a leading edge gamfication and badge platform called badgefarm.
