I love customer feedback. And I love tactile things! Whenever I see one of these HappyOrNot devices, I love to cast my vote.
I am starting to see these kiosks pop up all over airports, and when I looked them up I discovered that there is very little information about them on the web. So I did a little research! Here’s what I found.
Happy Or Not is such a simple device, and it seems to cut through a lot of the noise. No need for a customer to give you their contact information, and the beauty of anonymity seems that it would lead to very honest feedback.
HappyOrNot was founded by Finnish entrepreneur Heikki Väänänen in 2009, and they have since posted sales of 5 million euros in 6 years, which equates to approximately $5.5M USD. HappyOrNot is one of the fastest growing startups in Finland.

I reached out to HappyOrNot to find out more information about these awesome devices, and found out some really interesting facts:
- They come in a kiosk, tabletop and portable version
- They come with a sim card inside that submits instant live data to a feed
- They have a data dashboard that shows the feeds from all of your HappyOrNot kiosks and compiles it into statistics for you to view at any time
- The devices are customizable in terms of the questions asked on them, company logo, etc
- They have built in anti-tampering features
- The company follows a traditional SAAS model, charging a monthly subscription price per device, per month
Pricing seems fairly reasonable to me. Below is a pricing chart that the sales rep sent to me.
