BOULDER, Colo. - Jan. 27, 2010 - Boulder, Colorado-based social media agency Room 214 (www.room214.com) has selected Crimson Hexagon (www.crimsonhexagon.com) as a key strategic partner, providing next-generation opinion analysis monitoring to extend Room 214`s social media research and business intelligence offerings.
"Room 214 was one of two early enterprise agency partners we began working with in 2009," said Candace Fleming, CEO of Crimson Hexagon. "Room 214`s product feedback, understanding of our platform, and analyst resources make them an ideal partner around delivering and extending the value of our software."
Room 214 has been an early practitioner of interpretive analysis from user generated content and aggregated online data since 2006. The social media agency remains tool-agnostic, and is leveraging Crimson Hexagon`s monitoring platform to help large brands better distill opinions and meaning from social networking properties and online conversations. "We`ve been able to distinguish Room 214 in the business intelligence space by choosing the right technology partners and focusing on how to make the data actionable," stated Jason Cormier, Managing Partner of Room 214. "From a software perspective, quickly identifying insightful business trends and opportunities requires more than what most offer."
Room 214`s interest in Crimson Hexagon stemmed from its unique technology which enables Room 214 analysts to distill meaning about brands, products, services, markets and competitors from online conversations.
"Crimson Hexagon`s opinion monitors go far beyond automated sentiment which is often unreliable and only provides a breakdown of positive, negative or neutral conversations," states James Clark, co-founder of Room 214. "In stark contrast to straight up sentiment analysis, Crimson Hexagon data provides the intelligence to drill deeper into relevant opinions in the online conversation to better align marketing strategies and initiatives that incorporate the voice of the customer."
As strategic partners, Room 214 and Crimson Hexagon are working closely together on product feedback, training and joint marketing and selling initiatives.
About Crimson Hexagon
Crimson Hexagon helps big brands and small businesses understand what the online conversation really means for them. Based on groundbreaking work conducted at Harvard University`s Institute for Quantitative Social Science, Crimson Hexagon is the only commercially available listening platform that distills meaning - with mathematical precision - from the cloudy torrent of opinion, information and data available online. While a growing number of "listening platforms" can count keyword appearances in the online conversation, Crimson Hexagon is unique in its ability to reveal the nature of that conversation: the key themes, their relative size, and how they change over time. We don`t just count the dots - we uncover the patterns.
