Radialpoint is proud to announce that it has received the Technology Services Industry Association’s (TSIA) Vision Award in the Innovative Commercial Companies category for 2014. Held on May 7 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, the award ceremony recognizes game-changing ideas in technology services that advance the industry and shape emerging trends. Over 700 peers voted live for the award winners, who said that Radialpoint Reveal is an outstanding example of how members contribute to their customers’ successes. “Radialpoint is honored to receive this award from our industry peers. We feel very pleased to have our work recognized in this way,” said Warren Levitan, CEO of Radialpoint.
TSIA is honoring members that advance the cause of delivering successful outcomes for customers. “Gone are the days of customers paying for high-priced, capital expenditure items; we are transitioning to a world where customers want to pay lower prices for cloud-based services, if they can successfully consume the business value of your product. It’s becoming a consumption or subscription-based economy. Relationships with customers now become month-to-month arrangements; every interaction with them is now a retention interaction. Each month the customers must experience positive outcomes and value or they will leave,” said Levitan.
At the same time, customers’ environments are becoming increasingly heterogeneous.
TSIA research indicates that “up to 73%” of support issues are multi-vendor issues (issues that involve multiple products from different vendors). Internal knowledge bases don’t normally cover other vendors’ products. It’s no longer realistic to just support your own product; you have to help your customers with whatever they have in their environment. This can be time-consuming.
Radialpoint’s research indicates that support agents use Google search more than half the time to find support resources. More than 90% of agents rank it as a “better or equal source of knowledge” than their internal knowledge bases. John Ragsdale, Vice President of Technology and Social Research for TSIA, said that his research found that agents check Google search before checking their own knowledge bases 62% of the time.
Radialpoint Reveal, a free browser add-on that requires no training to use, addresses these issues by arming support teams with the knowledge to solve all their customers’ technology problems. Radialpoint Reveal helps call center agents find the most trusted tech support knowledge on the web in mere seconds. When researching an issue with Google search, Radialpoint Reveal presents solutions recommended by agents around the world, or across the office. Users of Radialpoint Reveal can add their own recommendations to the collective knowledge at the click of a button, thereby improving the quality of results over time.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control.
