“Allowing our customers to influence our roadmap has helped us gain new customers and reduce churn, and will have a good long-term impact on our growth” Case study.

“We chose Receptive to manage our feature requests for three reasons: customers were asking for features all over the place and we had no way to manage them, we found that customers weren't finding the features they requested if we didn't tell them at launch, & the transparency of the roadmap in Receptive gets our customers excited & involved in what we're doing” Case study

“As a fast-growing SaaS business, we can't afford to waste time or money building features that don't add value to our product. Before Receptive our feature backlog was unstructured and disorganised. Now we can see what features are most valuable and work on those”

How it Works

Customer experience

Gather feature requests from customers

  • Your customers browse feature ideas, vote & add their own ideas
  • Receptive auto-suggests matches from existing features
  • Customers self-serve — no new login required
  • Automatically email customers as you release features

Work on what matters

Learn customer priorities

  • Your customers dial-in priorities with our unique sliders. What is a real headache? What is just a nice-to-have?
  • Know what is important to your customers from trial, through adoption & account growth
  • Eliminate stale feature data held in spreadsheets, emails & to-do lists — get real-time knowledge
  • Get smart insights about what is really going to help your customers and accelerate your growth. You can't get this from dumb voting systems
