Leading Analyst Firm Positions Oracle in Leaders Quadrant for CRM Customer Service Contact Centers

REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 30, 2012) - Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL)

News Facts

  • Gartner, Inc. has placed Oracle's Siebel CRM and Oracle's RightNow CX Cloud Service in the Leaders Quadrant of its 2012 report, "Magic Quadrant for CRM Customer Service Contact Centers." (1)
  • The customer service contact center refers to a logical set of technologies and processes that are engineered to support the customer, regardless of the channel.
  • According to Gartner, "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 the vendors deliver a high level of value and return on their commitment. The development team has a clear vision of the implications of business rules, and the impact of social networking on customer service requirements."
  • Gartner continued, "A characteristic of a leader is that clients look to the vendor for clues as to how to innovate in customer service in areas such as embedded sensors in equipment, mobile support and extension to social communities. The vendor does not necessarily drive a customer toward vendor lock-in, but rather provides openness to an ecosystem. When asked, clients reply that a Leader's product has affected the organization's competitive position in its markets and helped lower costs. Leaders can demonstrate $50 million in sales to new customers during the past year."
  • The world's most complete CRM solution, Oracle's Siebel CRM helps organizations differentiate their businesses to achieve maximum top-and bottom-line growth.
  • With solutions tailored to more than 20 industries, Oracle's Siebel CRM delivers a combination of transactional, analytical and engagement features to manage all customer-facing operations.
  • Oracle RightNow CX Cloud Service, the customer experience suite, helps deliver exceptional customer experiences and applications that can drive revenue, increase efficiency, and build loyalty across the web, social networks and contact centers, all delivered via the cloud.
