In current scenario customer feedback lives in unorganized inboxes and clogged ticket systems. Customer Feedback Forums are filled with duplication, user support is impossible to determine and valuable ideas are getting lost in shuffle. UserRules objective is to add structure to feedback given by users and reduces the overhead of an honest dialog with customers. It creates a market around good ideas so we get more quality the quantity.

Customers have ideas but are we ready to listen ? UserRules is the easiest way to turn customer feedback into action in 3 steps:

1. Customer gives Ideas
2. Other Customers Vote for the best
3. Companies Respond, Implement & Repeat.

UserRules collects and organizes all social knowledge (questions, feedback, concerns, and praise) into a unified platform that can be shared and leveraged across both internal and customer facing channels. This approach transforms customer discussions into actionable content that ripples throughout organization. Product development, relationship marketing, brand management and public relations all get value from the information contained within customer interactions.

Available as a hosted (SaaS) service, easily extended through simpled widgets and open APIs and out into the Social Web via Facebook and Twitter integrations. Companies can customize and implement UserRules in five minutes to collect,analyze, measure and respond to online user feedback.It also acts as:

1. Cost-effective customer support platform

I think this would be helpful for a host of products.

1. Everything to understand and manage feedback in one place. 2. Good workflow.

1. It would be good if there were things like sentiment analysis. 2. Praises from users are not shown in widget on the client website.
