It is an innovative product and really helps company to improve their product and better satisfy the customer. It also provides a medium for customer interaction and solve each other’s queries. Inspite of its advantages, the same service can be more or less provided by social networking websites like facebook where a page or group can be created. However, we wish Heeduser all the best!
