KISSmetrics and CatchFree CEO Sean Ellis have long collaborated in the survey space, launching in 2009 a free customer development survey together on that has helped thousands of companies identify and understand their most passionate customers.

"Understanding customer feedback and motivation is a powerful way to drive breakthrough ideas for improving customer acquisition, conversion and retention rates," said Ellis.

With requests for a more elegant way to collect feedback and the ability to ask custom questions, it became clear that we needed something like KISSinsights."
