Online survey software company QuestionPro has acquired former EvoNexus company and micro survey platform RapidEngage

Dec 10, 2014, 11:00 ET from EvoNexus

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RapidEngage collects customer insight and increases website engagement for companies in the form of signups, conversions, page views, sales, or revenue. They do this by improving survey completion and abandonment rates by offering surveys that can be completed in 30 seconds or less.

QuestionPro provides online survey software that allows users to generate the insights they need to make business decisions. This acquisition will strengthen QuestionPro's offering by implementing RapidEngage's unique website feedback and engagement technology.  This technology helps drive website engagement by targeting website visitors with the right engagement messaging at the right time.

QuestionPro CEO Erik Koto said of the acquisition, "Driving better website engagement and feedback is critical for the success of any business with an online presence.  The team at RapidEngage has built a great product and I'm particularly excited to extend this offering to our QuestionPro customers."

RapidEngage founders Daniel Marashlian, Sean Callahan, and Rodney Rumford are serial entrepreneurs with prior experience building acquisition-worthy companies. They are the same trio behind the success of the photo-sharing app Plixi (formerly TweetPhoto), which was acquired by Lockerz in 2011.

Prior to this acquisition, RapidEngage was incubated at EvoNexus, a completely pro bono, community-supported startup tech incubator. During their time in the incubator, RapidEngage benefited from office space, support, and access to the wide array of mentor sponsors and events that EvoNexus has to offer – all at no cost. This acquisition by QuestionPro will make RapidEngage the 8th EvoNexus company to be acquired by a larger firm.

QuestionPro's acquisition of RapidEngage will add to its robust feedback management platform, which includes tools for creation, distribution, and analysis of surveys, as well as provides a platform for polling, tablet-based mobile research, and data visualization.
