SUNNYVALE, CALIF., (APRIL 9, 2001) - In the midst of a cooling economy that has left many companies wondering how to improve customer satisfaction and retention, software vendor eGain Communications Corporation (Nasdaq: EGAN) is hosting what it believes will be a popular and timely seminar series.
Starting on Tuesday, April 10, the company will conduct an eleven-city tour of executive briefings entitled, "Satisfaction Guaranteed: Achieve World-Class Customer Service Every Time." At the briefings, global marketing information services firm J.D. Power and Associates will present results cultivated from its research on how online customer service can increase customer satisfaction and loyalty.
Ashutosh Roy, CEO of eGain Communications will kick off the first leg of the executive briefings with appearances in Atlanta, GA, and New York, NY.
As a leading provider of enterprise interaction management software for the Internet, the demand for eGain`s solutions is predicted to outpace other information technology (IT) investments. "The primary market that eGain plays in - collaborative CRM - is one of the faster moving CRM markets," commented Tim Hickernell, Senior Program Director at META Group. "With so many companies building online customer service capabilities, we project a 54% average market growth for the next five years for the type of solutions that eGain provides." Indeed, in the aftermath of a year in which companies focused on acquiring customers at any cost, eGain`s focus on customer retention and satisfaction offers a refreshing return on investment for IT executives.
eGain`s seminars will showcase e-Service industry experts such as eLoyalty, Giant Step, Harte-Hanks Communications, and Pyxis Consulting.
