As Trion prepares to roll out an entirely new way to game with its first server-based MMO title, we need partners on board who understand a gamer’s need for instantaneous, quality assistance. We found a good fit with Fuze’s flexibility and pricing structure and are pleased to know that we are providing our customers the quality support they deserve.
Seattle, Wash. (Vocus) August 27, 2009
Fuze Digital Solutions announced today that Trion World Network, Inc. (Trion), publisher and developer of server-based video games including Heroes of Telara™ its fantasy Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG), has selected the Fuze Suite™ to power its customer care.
Provided by Fuze Digital Solutions, the Fuze Suite delivers multi-channel support through its modular self- and assisted-service components that include a collaborative and highly searchable knowledge base (KB) including community content, email/contact management, and feedback management system that Trion intends to offer gamers both in-game and on its web site to render high quality customer care. The Fuze Suite currently supports English and 6 other languages, including Japanese.
After an extensive evaluation that included site visits to Fuze headquarters and a pilot program, Trion gave Fuze the nod over other prominent providers that serve the gaming space, based on the overall value of its offering, scalability, support, and product roadmap.
Craig Parrotte, Head of Customer Service at Trion, said, "As Trion prepares to roll out an entirely new way to game with its first server-based MMO title, we need partners on board who understand a gamer’s need for instantaneous, quality assistance. We found a good fit with Fuze’s flexibility and pricing structure and are pleased to know that we are providing our customers the quality support they deserve."
Trion will begin using Fuze’s hosted, on-demand services with the opportunity to transition to a licensed, on-premise model as it makes sense for their business. The transition from hosted to licensed model can be accomplished with less than 30 minutes of downtime.
Chuck Van Court, CEO and Founder of Fuze had this to say, "The decision made by Trion’s seasoned professionals experienced with critical customer care functionality to go with Fuze rather than the heavily-marketed competitors means the world to us. We always do very well when included in the evaluation process by gaming companies and others alike, especially when considering the comprehensive, yet intuitive features of the Fuze Suite. The price point is just icing on the cake!"
