The biggest pain for professional services firms is maintaining the high standards of day-to-day client service
San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) September 11, 2008
BrightSide Software launched its beta version of Clienteq - a client service tool for professional services firms - establishing a new standard of client service at the TechCrunch50 in San Francisco today.
Cleinteq is a Web-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) client service tool for professional services organizations: consulting, legal, accounting, advertising, and research firms. Cleinteq is an open to clients collaborative environment enabling automation of typical client service workflows, such as status reports, meeting minutes, feedback/approval tracking and timesheets. Clienteq helps professional services firms to offer their clients a more reliable and transparent service, spending less effort on daily routine procedures.
"The biggest pain for professional services firms is maintaining the high standards of day-to-day client service," said Dimitri Lisitski, co-founder of BrightSide. "That's why traditional CRM tools built around the sales automation concept failed for this vertical. We've turned CRM inside out, opening it to clients: in Clienteq, your team and your client's team can share and discuss documents, track feedback and action items, publish meeting minutes, fill timesheets and track the billing process. We designed Cleinteq to become the ultimate client service tool that raises the bar for client service standards."
Currently, the Clienteq beta version is available to a select group of professional service firms. Interested companies may apply to the early access program. The public release of Cleinteq is planned for December, 2008.
