Existing and New Customers Use eGain Service 6 for Scalable Customer Service and Integrated Service Fulfillment at Reduced Cost of Ownership
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- November 20, 2003 -- eGain Communications Corp. (Nasdaq: EGAN), a leading provider of customer service and contact center software to the Global 2000, today announced that the company is experiencing strong adoption of eGain Service 6, the industry`s most comprehensive customer service suite that is based on a single platform for customer service management (eGain SMP (tm), eGain`s Service Management Platform).
The new suite appeals to customers looking to seamlessly extend customer interaction management with follow-on task management and service fulfillment in their contact center operations. Additionally, outsourcers are leveraging its multi-tenancy capability to cost-effectively serve multiple clients from a single deployment, while enterprises are able to serve multiple departments from a single installation while sharing and leveraging best practices across these departments, and reducing cost of ownership. Several companies in industry sectors such as outsourcing, travel and hospitality, financial services, telecom and retail have implemented the solution. Among early customers: Charter Communications, La Quinta Corporation, Brookstone, Lockheed Martin, Wine Country Gift Baskets, Affina, Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Vistaprint.
"The Atlanta Journal-Constitution not only prides itself on being one of the most trusted news sources in the world but also in providing outstanding service to its readers and business clients," said Diane Glass, Director of Online Database Management for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, one of the enterprises that have implemented the email management application in the eGain Service 6 suite. "With its rich and versatile functionality, eGain Service 6 will enable us to sustain our service excellence."
"Through 2004, companies will continue to focus on deriving as much return across the enterprise from CRM investments as possible," said Tim Hickernell, Vice President META Group. "Service platforms that enable a single physical installation to be provisioned as multiple virtual deployments can allow more and smaller service processes to be automated across an enterprise, such as departmental service projects whose individual scopes otherwise might not pass muster for traditional service platform investments."
