Denver, CO. (April 12, 2005) – Today, the United States Patent Office in Washington DC, granted a Patent Pending status to iModerate’s software and methodologies. iModerate’s unique and proprietary technologies are the newest method in the industry for garnering comprehensive online data.

“When you have breakthrough technology like iModerate does, filing for a patent is a natural step,” says iModerate CEO Joel Benenson. “We are extremely excited about what this technology can bring to the market research industry.”

iModerate allows individual, online survey respondents to be connected with professional moderators for a one-on-one interview. The technology works seamlessly with other data collection tools, which allows clients to use iModerate while retaining their current survey research provider. Ideal for a wide range of research projects including ad tests, brand, image and message tests, as well as tracking studies, iModerate gives clients a high quality, cost-effective tool to meet their needs when budgets do not allow for the employment of both surveys and focus groups.

The insights I received from iModerate really brought our NPS program to life. While it was always highly-visible and important to key stakeholders it did not resonate as well with the majority of employees. The iModerate piece rounded out the NPS program and brought it to a place where it is now more valued, transparent and salient across the organization. Having the consumer’s voice and that context has helped us build business cases and impact operations in a way that has led to great success.
