Pegasystems Launches New Release of its Top-Ranked Enterprise Customer Service Solution

Latest release provides real-time recommendations to drive intelligent automation across channels and devices.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – December 18, 2013Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the leader in Business Process Management (BPM) and a leading provider of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions, today announced the latest version of its customer service solution. The new version, available on-cloud or on-premise, runs on Pegasystems’ latest release, Pega 7, and represents a significant leap forward in enabling businesses and their customers to more easily and effectively interact over various communication channels and devices.

Pega Customer Service enables customer service organizations to deliver accurate, relevant and complete resolutions to customer inquiries on the first contact, whether the interaction is web, mobile, or via the contact center.  Companies are able to reduce handle time and eliminate wasteful activities like screen toggling, copying, pasting and call noting.  Automated decisioning and predictive analytics deliver real-time recommendations to guide both the customer and the service representative through every conversation, reducing effort, increasing positive outcomes, and in many cases eliminating agent training.  When appropriate, self-service interactions can be seamlessly escalated to a customer service representative picking up exactly where the customer left off, without any loss of information, dramatically improving the customer experience.

The latest release of Pega Customer Service also strengthens customer engagement with integrated co-browsing, enhanced social collaboration features, and more extensive support for mobile devices.  Pega Customer Service significantly increases customer service solution time to market through business-friendly development models and ease of change.
