SoCoCare Launches Social Engagement for Customer Care Offering

BONITA SPRINGS, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 -- @ Customer Response Summit 5 -- SoCoCare™, a leading provider of cloud-based customer service software, today announced the launch of Social CIM™ (Customer Interaction Management), an all-in-one social engagement for customer care offering.

Social CIM has been developed specifically for customer care agents, supervisors and managers whose main focus is providing customer care over multiple social channels. The cloud-based offering rolls-up listening, engagement and social analytics into a comprehensive, all-in-one package for professional customer care teams. The system handles Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, RSS feeds, Blogs and articles.

"Social CIM creates a command center for customer care across multiple social channels," says Dan Miller, Senior Analyst at Opus Research. "SoCoCare takes an all-in-one approach that features a user-friendly dashboard with rich KPI and SLA analytics for both agents and supervisors. The emphasis on agent productivity has great promise for companies taking on the challenges of comprehensive customer care for social channels."

"Social CIM signals the end of the first generation single-feature social customer care tools, which have to be integrated to all work together," says Ed Margulies, COO and co-founder of SoCoCare. "Now the pain of sourcing NLP (Natural Language Processing), decisioning, network aggregation, listening, analytics, and influence tools is gone. Instead, Social CIM provides everything you need for your social engagement for customer care needs."

Spam Elimination
One of the biggest problems vexing social customer care teams is the existence of non-relevant or non-actionable social posts. In fact, some social care agents spend 50 percent or more of their time reading and characterizing posts as spam. Historically, the solution to this problem was to cobble-on third party NLP tools to attempt to sort out spam. With Social CIM, a self-learning spam elimination component is built-in. Now, agents are able to filter out non-actionable items, thus saving each agent hours of wasted time every day. The system automatically trains based on user input so it gets more accurate in its spam elimination over time.

Social Analytics for Customer Care
Social CIM offers role-based analytics that help agents, supervisors and analysts be more effective at doing their job. The system provides agent dashboards for self-KPIs (Key Performance Indicators), comparisons to workgroup peers, Real-Time supervisory KPI statistics, and extensive SLA (Service Level Agreement) dashboards for each profile, cluster, workgroup and social feed. The supervisory dashboards provide rich data and metrics that can improve agent workflow, productivity, and decision-making.

Author Search and Conversation Threading
Social CIMs search capabilities allow agents to quickly scan a social author's history by conversation thread, showing all previous interactions over time. This avoids the problem of multiple agents contradicting each other in what they say or do for a customer.

Automatic Prioritization of Social Posts
Using built-in NLP and Decisioning technology, Social CIM has the ability to automatically tag and prioritize social posts based on attributes such as sentiment, influence, and topical relevancy. These attributes are used to create automatic triggers for prioritization, which not only saves agents time but also enables agents to quickly respond to those who matter most. Agents also benefit from pre-scripted "Next Best Actions" that provide recommendations on exactly what to do or offer to a customer depending on these decisioning triggers.

About SoCoCare
SoCoCare is part of the Hyfiniti portfolio of cloud-based customer care offerings including InAppCare (Mobile Customer Care) and Hold-Free Networks (Callback and Queue Management). SoCoCare products are developed to deliver a more dignified customer service experience over social channels.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time. Now that design CAD teams are geographically distributed, centralizing their work is key. With large multi-gigabyte projects, outdated tools have stifled industrial team agility, time-to-market milestones, and impacted P&L stakeholders.
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications.

Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
