Parature is dedicated to helping organizations deliver superior customer/member service
Vienna, VA (Vocus) November 12, 2008 –
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 associations, insight into how Web 2.0 technology is changing the way associations are servicing their membership, including discussion forums, wikis and other collaborative mechanisms to provide a virtual meeting place for experts to network. The white paper entitled “Delivering World-Class Support to Association Memberships” is available online at http://www.parature.com/res_whitepapers.aspx.
The growing social networking capabilities provided by the Web, coupled with members’ increasing expectations for their membership dollars, mean the stakes are higher than ever before for professional associations. They not only need to support their members’ needs with a new generation of technologies that enhance networking, but they need to improve the ways their customer service organization interacts with members to enhance loyalty. The software-as-a-service (SaaS) model provides organizations with the power to leverage service and support technologies for competitive differentiation and is an invaluable asset when supporting the newest generation of members. Web-savvy consumers expect the best online experience for their membership fees. Those that receive it stay loyal, continuing the revenue stream, and those that don’t will research offerings elsewhere. It is imperative that associations impress existing and potential members by providing the support applications they desire such as forums, self-service knowledgebases, issue escalation paths, and a support site that is easy-to-use. “Delivering World-Class Support to Association Memberships” explores the proven value of using Web-based software for member service and support, and how it can be a key differentiator for associations in this tech-savvy world.
