Company’s Spring Release Blazes New Ground for Innovative Feedback and Personalization Features

Washington, D.C. — May 17, 2018 — Higher Logic today announced the 2018 Spring Release, including the latest updates to its online community platform. The release offers new features and enhancements, including the launch of Ideation, an innovative add-on module. The feedback capability of Ideation, along with a new polls feature, lets organizations efficiently capture comments and advice from their community members. The new release also features personalization enhancements and improved discussion thread designs. Together, these new capabilities ensure members gain more value from their communities, while enabling organizations to improve their products and services, increase customer engagement and encourage renewal and upsell opportunities.

Our clients have a rich, but often untapped, resource for improving their products and services using constant feedback from their online communities,” said Ed English, chief product officer at Higher Logic. “Our new Ideation and polling capabilities enable organizations to capture the best and brightest ideas from their community members and use them to improve the community experience and encourage renewals and upsells – while also gaining indispensable knowledge that can help them add value for all their customers.
