"We're excited and honored to be recognized by TMC for our robust solution that brings Business Process Management to CRM like no other product on the market," said Amy Bethke, director of product management, Pegasystems. "Pegasystems' products are prompting organizations to become more agile by anticipating and meeting their call center's needs. As a result of their implementations, companies are seeing higher customer satisfaction rates, lower costs and increased ROI."

It provides a powerful combination of rules and process management capabilities that enable organizations to unify their business goals with their systems and operations. The solution's fully integrated customer service capability allows CSRs to offer highly-customized cross-sell messages to customers, by using business rules to determine which product offerings are most applicable to each customer based on their unique profile to increase productivity and satisfaction.
