Everything a product manager does is for the customer.
All for the customer — designed to solve their pain, resonate with their needs and ultimately make their life (and jobs) easier and more efficient.
If customers are truly at the center of everything related to the product manager role, it’s only logical that customer feedback and insights should be accessible whenever a PM needs them.
However, product managers (and teams in general) usually have to hunt and dig for all of this valuable customer information ... because insights have become siloed and “held captive” by individual teams and tools.
Sometimes the opposite problem is evident: instead of data living in one gated, hard-to-find location, it resides in many different spots — in fact, the average company’s data lived in 137 unique SaaS apps in 2020.
Siloed and disparate data equate to “lost” or forgotten insights — valuable customer information that goes unused. And this impacts the entire organization — PMs making ill-informed decisions or leading to an increase in funnel drop-off or customer churn.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Thanks to Sprig’s new Integrations Hub, your user insights can be seamlessly shared between your various software apps.
TL;DR: If you run a digital business in 2021, it’s imperative to share your user insights across all your teams and apps – and Sprig now makes it possible to do just that!
Introducing Over 3,180 New Sprig Integrations
Here at Sprig, we geek out a bit over sharable user insights ... especially insights that have the power to connect your business to your customers.
Our new Integrations Hub helps with just that.
As I type this sentence we’ve unlocked over 3,180 integrations that make it possible to connect all parts of your business with real-time user insights ... ensuring the voice of your customer is at the center of all your teams and tech AND that the most accurate/up-to-date data is at the ready for anyone who wants to use it.
Let’s say, for example, you are considering building out a new version of a feature. However, you’re not sure of the business impact yet. It’s crucial for the sake of your roadmap and resources that you get a holistic view of how it will affect users.
So you ...
1. Launch an in-product survey in Sprig to gather insights (hint: our “Improve an Existing Product or Feature" template is a great resource to help you get started).
2. Leverage your existing customer data infrastructure (by connecting your Google Tag Manager instance) to target a specific segment of users (say, account created > 1 year ago + logged in within the past 4 days). We’re pretty sure your eng team will be thankful for that #nocode setup.
3. Compare the user insights you collect side by side with your product analytics data (connect Sprig to your favorite apps via Zapier or Segment) to understand why your users are doing what they are doing with your original feature set. This will help build your hypothesis for the impact of the feature improvement.
4. As in-product survey responses flow in, automatically add them to your roadmap planning in Productboard. This will help keep the entire team aligned about customer insights, chart next steps, and make the right decisions.
And when it comes time to ship….
5. Run a continuous Sprig survey (like this one!) to keep a pulse on how users are liking the new feature and confirm usability improvements. Then share some qualitative nuggets and improved usability scores with the entire core team by pumping responses directly into Airtable.
And when you receive a not-so-pleasant response or confusion around the new feature…
6. Just use Zapier to trigger a ticket in your project management tool (like Jira or Asana). Then set up another Zap to send an email to the PM responsible for that feature AND update the user record in your CRM/ticketing system to reflect where the feedback came from.
