MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the platforms that power the contact centers market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes SpiceCSM with the 2015 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Price/Performance Value Leadership. The SpiceCSM cloud-based Decision Tree Software uses Guided Process Workflows to present dynamic information to contact center support representatives that can cut costs, minimize training, and reduce agent turnover rates.
"Competitive solutions often require a complete 'rip and replace' when implementing a system change, and this requires considerable time and costs," said Frost & Sullivan Principal Analyst Michael DeSalles. "However, this is not the case with SpiceCSM's solutions. The company's platform generates great value, particularly in the IT department, where cost savings on professional services can be as much as 75 percent."
The SpiceCSM platform has been designed with simple application programming interfaces (APIs). They can be easily integrated with a wide range of high-end customer relationship management and helpdesk applications such as BluePay, Microsoft Dynamics, Oracle, Salesforce, SAP, and in-house proprietary systems. This solid integration ensures that the client's investment in these applications can be extended, connected and leveraged without disruption, and all in the cloud.
"Along with its product feature richness, the SpiceCSM platform delivers impressive return on investment due to its impact on a range of contact center processes," observes DeSalles. "In actual use cases, the SpiceCSM platform was able to increase close rates in sales organizations by 12 percent, raise customers' internal satisfaction by 45 percent, as well as lower agent training time by 15 percent, average handle time by 25 percent, and call volume by 37 percent."
The SpiceCSM platform has been designed with simple-to-use application programming interfaces. They are easily integrated with a wide range of high-end CRM and Helpdesk applications that clients already use.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to a company that has developed a product to suit market and client needs. The award lauds the price competitiveness, features, ease of use of the product, as well as the service effectiveness of the recipient company.
