eGain® Interactive Sales Suite™ features comprehensive capabilities to woo, wow, and win™ customers across web, social, and mobile channels
Mountain View, CA (June 14, 2011): eGain (EGAN.OB), the leading provider of cloud and on-site customer interaction software, today announced the release of eGain Interactive Sales Suite, a novel approach for transforming B2C websites into interactive shopping destinations. The solution helps eBusiness and marketing teams quickly deploy, assess, and refine customer engagement strategies with contextual promotions and proactive assistance. As an integral part of eGain’s Customer Interaction Hub solution, the new suite works seamlessly with eGain’s award-winning service applications to ensure consistent customer experience at all touchpoints.
The need for an agile Web sales and service strategy
Despite escalating investment in online initiatives, B2C businesses struggle to keep up with proliferating touchpoints and rapidly evolving interaction preferences. Abandoned shopping carts, discarded forms, and fractured experiences are still the norm. eGain Interactive Sales Suite enables the deployment of holistic customer engagement strategies with a solution that is both quick and complete.
“The multichannel Web is rapidly becoming the central point for business-to-consumer interactions,” said Johan Jacobs, Research Director for Gartner. “Organizations that do not focus on leveraging web channels for unified sales, marketing, and service will struggle with customer engagement and ownership.”
Woo, wow, and win customers with eGain Interactive Sales Suite
