BOOMERANG ONLINE SURVEY SOFTWARE – TOP TOOL AND NO MONKEYING ABOUT! Monday 9 July 2007 PDF Print Boomerang email surveys give exciting all-British adventure company, Go Ape, an instant competitive edge. Brighton, 9th July, 2007 - Industry leading forest activity operator, Go Ape, run twelve award-winning high wire adventure courses. Imagine amazing rope bridges, gravity defying Tarzan swings and wicked zip slides, high in forest locations all over the UK. Visitors of all ages and abilities enjoy the Go Ape experience, which allows personal challenge in safely controlled conditions. This extremely successful leisure business is growing exponentially, and it was important to the Go Ape to be able to monitor that the high level of safety standards and customer excitement continued to be maintained. They needed direct customer feedback to help them measure and improve their business offering – and they wanted it as soon after the customer’s experience as possible. What Go Ape wanted was a flexible research tool that would contact every customer the day after their visit and collect business critical feedback, immediately and accurately. As importantly, they wanted to form a long-term relationship with a partner that they could trust. Marcus Falconer, Marketing Manager at Go Ape, explained, “We chose Sigmer because they were prepared to listen to us and accept our advice and feedback. They used that information to create a new version of Boomerang, so we really felt part of the development process.” “Boomerang online survey software lets us manage and maintain everything ourselves,” continued Marcus. “It is extremely intuitive so you require very little, if any, support. There is a small element of product training for people setting up Boomerang questionnaires, but maintenance is virtually zero and the overall cost of ownership is minimal. Real-time feedback of customer’s responses and continuously updated statistical information, allowing benchmarks to be monitored, is a major winner for the business.” “Our first live survey was outstanding - a 50% response rate,” said Marcus. “The results obtained via Boomerang have more than matched our expectations and we now see Boomerang as an integral part of Go Ape business development.” Go Ape use the information gathered by Boomerang to feed back into the business, and to help identify areas for possible improvement. The information has also helped them to identify their successes, such as a continuous customer satisfaction rate of over 90%.
