MindTouch, the company that continues to transform product help through web, social and mobile innovations, today announced MindTouch GeniusLink™, a new “universal knowledge connector” that integrates MindTouch with any customer management technology, including any CRM, chat, forum, community and social tools.

MindTouch is an easy-to-use collaborative knowledge service that includes a knowledge center, in-product contextual help system and powerful search. Until now, MindTouch integrated with only a few popular CRM systems, such as SAP Cloud, Salesforce Service Cloud and Zendesk. The introduction of MindTouch GeniusLink now allows MindTouch to work out of the box with any customer management system to serve the most accurate and relevant support knowledge to customers, support agents or community managers.

“MindTouch GeniusLink helps our customers serve their users better by making customer interactions quicker and smarter,” said Aaron Fulkerson, CEO, MindTouch.

Avalara Inc., a market-leading provider of sales tax and compliance automation services in the cloud, uses GeniusLink to help its call centers and support agents deliver on the company’s commitment to provide the best possible customer experience every time. Avalara’s integrated CRM system, now enhanced with MindTouch GeniusLink, creates a self-improving support cycle that results in better support ticket deflection, ensures first call resolution, and decreases average handle time, resulting in greater client satisfaction.

Since its founding nearly a decade ago, Avalara has pioneered the service-based platform for tax automation and emerged as a dominant player in this market by leading the automation effort for financial, ecommerce, POS and mobility applications for businesses. Today, Avalara’s SaaS solution provides a complete set of transactional tax compliance services developed specifically to serve the needs of small to mid-sized businesses.
