London, UK – 18th September 2007 – CIM Forum (, the international business and technology consortium focused exclusively on better managing online customer service, today announces its inaugural event in the UK, to mark the launch of the CIM Forum Europe. Taking place on 3rd October 2007, “Setting the Course for an Exceptional Customer Experience” will bring together companies with visionary online service and support operations, such as Nationwide, Promethean and, to share best practice in customer care and support.

The launch event will open with a keynote presentation from Professor William H.

A panel session, with participants from Nationwide, and Promethean, will then explore the current issues, challenges and approaches to customer service and discuss how companies can achieve best practice.

“In today’s highly commoditised business markets, customer satisfaction has become the single most influential factor driving the acquisition and retention of customers,” said Sean O’Connell, Director of European Marketing for Talisma, sponsor of the CIM Forum. “As consumers move online and become increasingly sophisticated, delivering an exceptional service will be the only way for companies to differentiate themselves. The launch of the CIM Forum in Europe will provide a valuable platform for businesses to share insight and knowledge.”
