"Canvs provides our 'why' behind the score better than other text analytic tools in the industry. The amount of manual work this tool saves our company is invaluable. Canvs paints a picture of our customer's voice allowing us to visualize the level of impact a 'code' may be having on the company, region, call center, product, etc."

"Canvs AI is easy to use. It is also repeatable, taking the human factor out of coding, making it possible for OEs to become benchmarks in research. Also, with Canvs you can now get the sentiment in OEs which is great, our clients like the read on emotional and traditional comments. It adds more "qualitative" insights to the quantitative data."
