Indianapolis, IN – March 11, 2010 — Consona Corporation (Consona), a worldwide leader in providing customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and services for companies of all sizes, today announced the availability of a webcast panel discussion focusing on social media’s role in improving the customer experience with today’s companies. The webcast, “Customer Experience Management: How Social Media Changes the Game,” is moderated by KMWorld Publisher Andy Moore and includes experts from Attensity as well as Consona.
In the webcast, panel experts Catherine van Zuylen, vice president, Product Marketing, Americas at Attensity Corporation, and Tim Hines, vice president, product management for Consona’s CRM products, weigh in on how customer communities and social media contribute to traditional knowledge management and multi-channel customer service and support, becoming a tool for greater insight into the customer experience. The webcast presents solid recommendations for “operationalizing” customer experience processes to better understand and respond to customer needs, and discusses methodologies, software applications, and analytics that can be used to track, understand and react to customer feedback while improving the knowledge ecosystem.
Consona’s Hines explains that every company must realize the importance of social media in the customer service and support world. “This computing paradigm shift to leveraging social technology is here to stay, and it needs to be reflected in the most successful company operations,” he said. “If we choose to ignore its importance, companies risk losing touch with customers and fostering poor brand experience, among other things.”
“Customer Experience Management: How Social Media Changes the Game” was originally broadcast on February 23, 2010 over 190 attendees. It is available on demand at http://www.kmworld.com/Webinars/225-Customer-Experience-Management-How-Social-Media-Changes-the-Game.htm.
