Introducing Pulsar First: upload your first party data into Pulsar

Import your owned data into Pulsar (via API or .CSV) to unlock deeper customer insights


A deep understanding of customers is at the heart of most great businesses: but with so many customer interactions and touchpoints across platforms, embedding the “voice of the customer” into your analysis can be a challenge, and true customer insights can be elusive.

That’s why we built Pulsar First, Pulsar’s first party data upload functionality, which is now live for all our customers in a free beta. 

Whether you’re a researcher, marketer, CX or commercial professional, your can now upload your text first-party data into Pulsar, process it through our vertical AI, and then view, analyze, segment and visualize it to unlock deeper customer insights – just like any other data source you are tracking on Pulsar. You can upload data via .CSV or through our API. 



* please note that in order to upload first party data, you will need to be complying with data legislation and  Pulsar’s acceptable use policy


What can I use Pulsar First for?

Depending on the dataset you own and the business challenge you’re facing, Pulsar First allows you to glean better customer insights across your organization’s departments and business functions, and across use cases.

  • Correlate breaking news, campaigns or viral moments with customers interactions: map a spike in sentiment in your customer support tickets with a broad industry trend which is unfolding across news media and social networks. 

Those are just a few examples – Pulsar First can help you glean different kinds of customer insights based on which kind of data you have. Which brings us to…
