RightNow November ’07 Also Supports 33 Languages and Dialects, More than Any Other On Demand CRM Provider
BOZEMAN, MONT. (November 19, 2007) - RightNow® Technologies (NASDAQ: RNOW) today introduced RightNow November ’07, the latest release of its enterprise-class, on demand customer relationship management (CRM) solution.

RightNow November ’07 includes a new knowledge syndication widget that enables organizations to easily syndicate and distribute dynamic content, such as frequently asked questions, product specifications and warranty information, across multiple Web sites. By syndicating dynamic content from the RightNow knowledge foundation to anywhere consumers may need it - an e-commerce or distribution partner’s Web site - RightNow November ’07 helps organizations provide consumers with consistently current, relevant information when and where they are most likely to seek it.
“Before making a purchase, savvy consumers do online research, which significantly influences buying decisions,” said David Vap, vice president of products at RightNow. “With RightNow November ’07, companies can now ensure that the rich and dynamic content stored in RightNow’s knowledge foundation is available through the Web sites a consumer is most likely to visit.”
For example, a manufacturer that maintains current, detailed product information in its RightNow knowledge foundation can syndicate that information to its external Web site, online retail outlets selling its products, as well as partner sites that offer related accessories and services.
The new syndication capabilities complement the sitemap feature that RightNow introduced in August 2007, which enables organizations to index knowledge foundations and make them accessible to search engines. Through the combination of RightNow’s syndication and sitemap features, companies can distribute dynamic content across a variety of Web sites and search engines in real time, assisting consumers in making informed buying decisions and potentially influencing their purchases – even if consumers never visit a company’s Web site.
