San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
MindTouch, the leader in proactive customer support experiences, today announced it has more than tripled the number of HelpRequests served by its product knowledge platform in the last sixth months. The company also announced record earnings for the first half of the year, with June highlighted as the most successful revenue month in company history.
One of the reasons for the company’s financial success is its change from a features-based to a value-based pricing model. Value is calculated per HelpRequest, which represents a single closed-loop customer transaction where product knowledge is provided to the end user. A HelpRequest may be delivered through web self-service, chat, CRM, contextual help, social or other customer support channels.
“We anticipate value-based pricing to become a standard in SaaS because it directly tracks to transactions where true value is exchanged between a company and its customers. By correlating pricing directly with the value derived from software, everybody wins” said Aaron Fulkerson, CEO of MindTouch.
