SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 11, 2013) - eGain (NASDAQ: EGAN), the leading cloud provider of multichannel customer engagement solutions, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Leaders" quadrant of the 2013 "Magic Quadrant for CRM Web Customer Service Applications."
Johan Jacobs, Research Director at Gartner and author of the report, writes, "Leaders demonstrate market-defining vision and the ability to execute against that vision through products, services, demonstrable sales figures and solid new references for multiple geographies and vertical industries. Clients report that these vendors deliver a high level of value and return on their commitment." He adds, "The development team has a clear vision of the implications of business rules and the impact of Web customer service on customer service requirements. A characteristic of a Leader is that clients look to the vendor for clues as to how to innovate in customer service. When asked, their clients reply that this product has affected the organization's competitive position in their markets and helped lower costs. Leaders provide functionally diverse and rich Web customer service suites in which a knowledgebase solution is part of the integrated offering and can be deployed and supported globally, and have at least six of the eight Web customer service framework components supported as an OEM solution."
"We are delighted to be in the Leaders quadrant," said Ashu Roy, eGain CEO. "We are very excited at the prospect of powering even more innovative and ambitious online customer engagement strategies."
