WABAN, Mass., July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Temkin Group announces the eight vendors it has selected to feature in its Intensify Emotion Provider Showcase. This showcase is part of Temkin Group's Intensify Emotion Campaign (IntensifyEmotion.com), which the company previously launched to raise organizational awareness about the crucial role emotions play in building loyalty with customers.
Temkin Group created the Intensify Emotion Provider Showcase as an opportunity to highlight vendors who can help large organizations discuss, measure, enhance, and design for emotion. Vendors submitted nominations to Temkin Group throughout July 2016.
"Customer emotion is a key driver for loyalty, yet it is often ignored because companies don't know what to do about it," states Bruce Temkin, Managing Partner of Temkin Group. "These vendors are helping companies understand and take action on engaging customer emotions."
