Award-winning Scottish start-up, MyCustomerLens, will be using its unique insight platform to support the #Fitness2Me campaign on National Fitness Day.
MyCustomerLens has developed bespoke algorithms that turn raw customer feedback into shared business intelligence. Co-founders Paul Roberts and Mike Evans developed their insight platform to help organisations make sense of the growing volume of customer data.
CEO Paul Roberts explained “consumers are sharing more feedback in more places than ever before. But instead of thriving on the insights, organisations are getting overwhelmed by the raw data. They need a fast and consistent way to make sense of their customer data, so that managers can see where to focus limited resources”.
National Fitness Day takes place on September 26th and encourages the nation to celebrate the fun of fitness and physical activity across the UK. At the launch event in May, the CEO of ukactive Steven Ward said: “National Fitness Day is all about celebrating the personal experiences and stories that physical activity brings to our lives. “Whatever fitness means to you, we’re calling on you to share that message with the nation so that more people can be inspired to live healthy, active lifestyles.”
#Fitness2Me – celebrating how fitness influences different people
To support the National Fitness Day campaign, MyCustomerLens will collect and analyse the tens of 1,000s of tweets with the #Fitness2Me hashtag. #Fitness2Me aims to celebrate what fitness means to people across the country, promoting that keeping physically active means something different to us all. The goal is to break down the barriers that stop people being active, by showing that fitness is for everyone.
Commenting on the campaign, Paul Roberts said “#Fitness2Me is a great idea and we’re excited to help tell the story. Clients like KA Leisure are getting right behind it, and it’s been inspiring to see the role and importance of fitness in their customers lives.”
“MyCustomerLens helps health & fitness organisations to make sense of their customer feedback. Whether they share their views on social media, feedback forms, surveys or complaints our algorithms can understand them. So we are in a unique position to be able to analyse the #Fitness2Me conversation. We can’t wait to help tell the story about how people across the UK feel about sport and fitness.”
