Company launches eGain SafeSwitch™ Program to enable seamless switch to providing best-in-class customer service and avoiding costly and disruptive upgrades

Mountain View, CA (Jun 25, 2009): eGain Communications Corporation (OTC BB: EGAN.OB), the leading provider of multichannel customer service and knowledge management software, on-site and on-demand, today launched a program that will allow enterprises with obsolete and non-integrated systems for customer service management to easily switch to eGain’s top-rated solution for multichannel customer service. The promotion is available immediately to US and Canadian businesses that have existing on-site deployments from the vendors listed later in this announcement.

Enterprises with legacy, non-integrated customer service products face non-existent product road maps or costly, forklift upgrades to new unproven versions. eGain provides an established, cost-effective alternative with eGain Service™, the industry’s most comprehensive customer interaction hub software suite. It offers rich next-generation web self-service, chat, co-browsing, email, SMS, fax, postal mail and notification management, call tracking and resolution, knowledge management, and service fulfillment capabilities on a common platform. Unlike CRM generalists, eGain has focused exclusively and consistently on enterprise customer service needs, delivering unified, best-of-breed customer service applications on a single platform.

To make it easy for businesses to move to eGain, the company is launching the eGain SafeSwitch Program. Here are the details:

• Incumbent on-site software deployments that qualify for this program include those from the following vendors:
o Brightware/FirePond
o Colloquis
o Kaidara
o KNOVA/Consona
o Mustang/Quintus
o noHold
o Talisma
• No license fee for acquiring eGain software to replace existing vendor licenses, one for one. The client will pay the ongoing support fee.
• Proven, rapid, and low-cost adapter-based upgrade to eGain Service. Typical conversion effort would be in weeks, not months.

“Businesses are actively replacing dead-end vendor products in favor of cost-effective, leading-edge platforms for unified multichannel customer service.” said Ashu Roy, CEO of eGain. “Our SafeSwitch Program will make the decision even easier for them.”
