The People Insights Platform

See the big picture with all feedback data in one place. Blue is built to support
your most important feedback processes, including learning evaluations, central
and major surveys, 360 degree feedback reviews, and more.

What is Blue?

Blue is not just a typical survey software. It’s a holistic people insights platform built to handle the most popular feedback initiatives, from student feedback on instruction to employee engagement in the workplace. Through best-in-class integration, powerful automation, and a robust reporting engine, Blue ensures your organization not only captures feedback but also turns it into the best possible decision.

With Blue, once set up, it’s done.

With Blue, you can fully automate your feedback gathering processes, making them more efficient. Leverage your existing infrastructure (SIS, HRIS, LMS, SSO, CRM, etc.) through Blue’s best-in-class integration capabilities for unequaled automation, top security and data privacy, and flexibility. Blue’s scalable structure will meet your evolving organizational needs, while the latest accessibility standards will ensure that you deliver an equivalent experience to all.

Support data-driven decisions at all levels of your organizational hierarchy to accelerate improvement. With Blue’s robust reporting engine – which includes metadata augmentation and text mining for enriched context – you can provide the right results, in the right way, to the right stakeholders.

It doesn’t end there. A flexible API allows you to build automated bridges and transfer data to any business intelligence portal or data warehouse – so you can own your data.

Context is key

Without the right context, data can be misleading. Blue adds context to feedback data to ensure you’re supporting the right decisions in the right way.

Through a synchronized connection with your information systems (SIS, HRIS, LMS, SSO, CRM, etc.), Blue leverages metadata and
other personalization features to ensure that every stakeholder has the information they need and the context to support decisions.
