Delivering Exceptional Customer Service to Gaming Communities
Vienna, VA (Vocus) July 29, 2009
Parature, the global leader in on-demand customer service software , announced today the release of a free white paper offering customer service and support professionals within the gaming community insight into the importance of a dynamic support experience. The white paper entitled "Delivering Exceptional Customer Service to Gaming Communities" is available for download in Parature's white paper library.
Predicted to reach $11 billion by the end of 2009, online gaming is one of the hottest growth segments in the video game market. The continually growing and shifting online gaming population encompasses everyone from hard-core gamers to young children and the elderly, as well as an increasingly balanced mix of both sexes making the execution of a gaming-specific support strategy more important than ever. The gaming community has a customer base that differs significantly from many user populations through its tech-savvy consumers, thus gaming providers need a complementary mix of support technologies that begin with self-service options and allow escalation to assisted channels. "Delivering Exceptional Customer Service to Gaming Communities" discusses the importance of ensuring that gamers receive a dynamic support experience that closely parallels their in-game experience. These Web-savvy communities expect the best online gaming experience from their providers; those who receive it stay loyal and, ideally, will pay to add more services that further improve that experience.
