Comments on RightNow and Transera

"If you deliver a great consistent experience, you will build a loyal customer base. Together, RightNow and Transera can give businesses with contact centers distributed around the world, an easy-to-implement system to allow them to deliver personalized and exceptional customer experiences," said Scott Creighton, Vice President, Business Development, RightNow Technologies.

"With unified and centralized management of all customer contacts, businesses can understand, anticipate and respond to customers' needs in a consistent way, across all channels of communications. Our integrated solution is built on joint customer engagements and a shared vision of delivering software-as-a-service to simultaneously improve the bottom line and customer experiences," said Prem Uppaluru, CEO and Co-Founder, Transera Communications.

"All too often, software-as-a-service is implemented in a silo with no links to the resources that make it simple and inexpensive to support multiple sites and delivery channels. Transera and RightNow fills a need for solutions that integrate on-demand CRM with intelligent routing to balance caller satisfaction with cost-effective service delivery," said Dan Miller, Senior Analyst, Opus Research.
