How to Leverage Customer Portals & Widgets for User-Centric Product Planning
As Steve Jobs once said, "You've got to start with the customer experience and work back toward the technology." Wise words that resonate now more than ever.

🎬 Picture this – 65% of successful product launches are attributed to companies actively listening to customer feedback. In a world where the customer is king, understanding their needs isn't just a strategy; it's a survival tactic.

But the challenges continue to exist…

Navigating the intricacies of feedback maze is no small feat. From the maze of scattered input to the time-consuming work of actual feedback management, the challenges are real. A product manager might —

  • rarely review all feedback due to the time required to manually sift through disparate sources.
  • lose crucial context as important details can slip through the cracks.
  • fail to close the loop with customers, leaving valuable interactions untapped.

…. and the list never ends.

What Product Managers need for Effective Feedback Capture?

Product managers need native tools that seamlessly integrate into their product ecosystem, offering a direct line to their customers' thoughts and ideas.

These could be feedback collection tools that empower their users to actively participate in the product planning process while ensuring a seamless closure of the loop once their feedback contributes to feature development.

That’s where Zeda.io’s In-app Feedback Widgets and Customer Portals step in. With these tools, you can —

✅ Create a frictionless experience, capturing ideas directly from users' natural interaction points.

✅ Collect feedback at scale without the risk of losing valuable insights in the process.

✅ Offer a personalized platform for users to voice opinions and cast votes, fostering a sense of individual involvement.

✅ Foster transparent communication of planned developments to keep everyone in the loop.

✅ Build a streamlined automation of the feedback management process, ensuring efficiency from submission to resolution.

Having said that, let’s dive into how Zeda.io’s widgets & portals actually work.
