Product quality, especially in technology, hasn’t always been a priority. For decades, many tech offerings were the only game in town, so developers overlooked quality because users had limited alternatives. But, with an explosion of new choices, quality became everything. Now, years later, successful leaders understand delivering a great user experience requires a quality-first strategy. They know their teams must be aligned around quality because it drives usage and adoption, and helps products stand out from the lower quality competition. Of course, being quality-driven also means being data-driven, having the tools to work smarter and faster based on what that data says, and getting ahead of quality issues before they become widespread.
Today, leadership teams are focused on growth in users, profits, revenue, market share, and more- and they understand that all revolves around product quality. That’s why they’ve leveraged unitQ Monitor. The mission-critical product quality platform empowers their entire organization to take a data-driven approach to product quality. With a solution that’s able to bring focus and intelligence to a product’s health, they’ve been able to drive growth and execute on top business goals. Here’s how:
The unitQ Score is based on the same user feedback data and machine learning intelligence used in unitQ Monitor, but normalized to allow for easy comparison between a company’s product and those of their competitors. It lets leadership teams accurately compare their app quality and health against the highest quality apps in their space or other relevant industries. It also filters out the noise of non-quality comments and feedback to provide a more accurate representation of product quality than many other rating methods.
For executives, the unitQ Score provides a relative and reliable comparison to track and guide teams as they execute on product quality initiatives and work towards surpassing quality goals. It’s also an unbiased indicator of overall quality issues experienced by their users as compared with other brands, so they can use it to set goals, identify competitive strengths and weaknesses, and more. Leadership teams have seen a boost with their product quality by 20% in 30 days when utilizing the score.
LOVOO, a European dating app, used unitQ Monitor and their unitQ Score to improve App Store ratings by 28% and reduce support tickets by 40%. That kept users coming back with increased sessions and session lengths. With unitQ, leadership teams also saw an increase in team efficiency and found their product teams were able to focus on product improvements that matter to their business.
Styleseat, an online booking and payment platform, doubled user retention and cut churn in half by using unitQ Monitor to automate, add intelligence to, and streamline their product quality and product ops processes. Now, instead of managing multiple tools across support, QA, and product operations, they have a single source of quality truth. It’s enabled them to focus on resolving issues rather than troubleshooting and searching.
When users are delighted with a high-quality product, they keep coming back for more and stop looking for alternatives. This accelerates sales cycles, increases profits, and makes for a more valuable company. A study found companies that focus on product-driven growth over sales-driven growth have above-average growth and gross margins, and are valued 29% higher. Those are all metrics every executive would be happy to improve.
