vCita (www.vcita.com), the leader in web engagement software for small business, today announced the availability of vCita Spring ‘14, the latest release of the company’s industry-leading web engagement platform. This release focuses on the vCita customer experience, offering unprecedented ease of use from anywhere, anytime on any device.
“The vCita Spring ‘14 Release exemplifies vCita’s commitment to providing small businesses everywhere the most powerful, reliable and easy-to-use web engagement platform available,” said Itzik Levy, founder and chief executive officer of vCita. “Our customers are realizing the value of an end-to-end web engagement platform that drives more business opportunities by engaging clients and delivering unsurpassed service online.”
Demand for vCita has soared with the company delivering more than four million client communications, a 300 percent increase since December 2013. The vCita Web Engagement Platform generates more business opportunities by empowering online visitors to take action. Self-service vehicles drive existing clients to engage by sending messages, setting appointments and even paying online for services. vCita is available anytime, anywhere on any device, and takes just minutes to install on any web presence.
According to Forrester, “Customers want to feel empowered to get service anywhere, anytime, and they expect their service interactions to be pain-free.” 1 Over half of U.S. online consumers are likely to abandon a website if they cannot find a quick answer to their questions, and three-quarters say that valuing their time is the most important thing a business can do to provide them with good service. With vCita, responding to client requests can be immediate, differentiating a small business by delivering amazing service.
