Pegasystems Raises the Bar for Customer Experience with Latest Industry-Leading Customer Service Application

The top-ranked application empowers large service organizations to better engage customers, simplifythe employee experience, and change as their business evolves.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – October 29, 2014Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company powering the digital enterprise, today announced significant innovations to its customer service application. Pega Customer Service engages customers while maintaining context and visibility, as they seamlessly transition across communication channels and devices – unifying social media, mobile apps, live chat, co-browsing, phone calls, and in-person service. The application increases employee productivity by providing customer service representatives (CSRs) with information from all channels in a unified desktop that guides them in delivering an exceptional end-to-end customer experience, from the first touch to completion.

Embedded case management connects the people and systems necessary to quickly resolve each customer inquiry by tracking relevant information, automating and assigning tasks, and connecting front- and back-office activity.  Intelligent guidance helps employees anticipate customer needs based on the situation.  Pega Customer Service makes it faster and easier to translate changing business requirements, such as new products, channels, devices, policies, and procedures, into an always up-to-date customer service application.

Pega Customer Service introduces new features and unifies technologies from Pega’s recent acquisitions of Mesh Labs and Firefly, including:

  • Intuitive Interface – The new interface is beautiful to work with, yet powerful enough to support the customer service complexities of large organizations.  Its intelligent guidance takes CSRs step-by-step through recommendations to deliver a personalized service experience for each customer. 
  • Co-Browsing Customer service representatives can share their web or mobile screens with customers in real time to jointly view websites, fill in forms, or share other browser-based content instantly without any software downloads.  Representatives can more easily guide customers through complex interactions and transactions.  Pega Customer Service seamlessly unifies Firefly’s co-browsing technology within the Pega 7 application. 
  • Social Engagement – Using advanced natural language and text analytics capabilities from Mesh Labs technology, CSRs can listen to customer conversations on social networks and identify and respond to critical issues.  These conversations can then be routed to the appropriate teams to respond and manage social interactions.  
  • Mobile – The application is optimized to provide rich user experiences on mobile devices including mobile chat, mobile self-service apps, mash-ups into existing mobile apps and role-based views of the application.
  • Knowledge Management – The application recommends relevant, timely information based on customer interactions and manages the complete lifecycle of that content, from creation to publication to archiving.

The Pega Customer Service application is built on the Pega 7 Platform.  Pega’s latest visual tools enable businesses to easily extend and change the application to meet their strategic business needs without code, delivering up to 6.4x faster than traditional Java.  Pega’s proven scalability ensures the application operates across the ever changing needs of users, business lines, geographies and channels that today’s enterprises demand.
