Mzinga and ISM Jointly Deliver Social Customer Experience Solutions

Mzinga® (www.mzinga.com), a pioneer in social intelligence solutions, services, and analytics for business, and ISM (www.ismguide.com), the premier strategic advisor to organizations planning and implementing CRM and Social CRM initiatives, today announced a new initiative to jointly deliver Social Customer Experience solutions. The shared technology and services will bring together Mzinga’s market-leading OmniSocial® platform and ISM’s Social CRM solutions for customer-centric business strategies.

Recent studies have shown that as customer experience and CRM solutions rise in popularity, organizations are struggling with how to provide a consistent experience across all channels. Gartner has stated that “CRM is entering a new era where the focus is much more on the relationship and less on its management. Driven by social media, a more open, honest and balanced approach is emerging, where organizations listen to and work with their customers to provide mutually beneficial and rewarding relationships.”

“Our mission is to help clients capture and sustain lifetime customers through proven, time-tested business strategies. We are focused on providing our clients with customer intelligence, including experiences gathered from expressing views, preferences and recommendations in social media environments,” said Barton Goldenberg, president, ISM. “We are excited to work with Mzinga to deliver a comprehensive solution that couples our Social CRM services with their innovative social community and analytics capabilities.”

The social customer experience solutions delivered by Mzinga and ISM will provide organizations with the ability to deploy cost effective, easy-to-use online communities for listening to market and client feedback, engaging in mutual knowledge sharing and communication, and customer satisfaction. ISM clients will be able to use OmniSocial combined with ISM’s expertise in community management to offer a total solution for gathering customer feedback to fuel rewarding customer relationships, real-time support and loyalty.

“Our relationship with ISM will enable us to offer customer-centric communities with proven methods for engaging and providing value to people who interact with their peers and brands,” said Mike Merriman, director of strategic services, Mzinga. “The combined partnership of Mzinga and ISM offers a total solution for community from documenting a plan, implementation and ongoing community management the entire customer lifecycle.”
