Get Satisfaction Delivers New Features in Its Enterprise Community Platform That Drive Customer Engagement and Provide Advanced Customer Support

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/14 -- Get Satisfaction, the leader in online community platforms, today announced new additions to its flagship product. New features support the ability to rapidly deploy new communities; drive member engagement; and provide a modern, responsive, and cost-effective way of supporting customers.

In a recent survey of community managers, more than 50% said that driving customer engagement was their number one challenge. In today's do-it-yourself, instant-answer world, customers demand fast resolution to questions and problems. They make rapid decisions about what to buy by talking with others. New features in Get Satisfaction that address these needs include gamification, support for rich media content, and the ability to create private communities. In addition, numerous tools for community managers help increase member engagement and provide faster answers to member questions and support issues.

"Get Satisfaction has been recognized as the online community platform that delivers the fastest time-to-value," said Rahul Sachdev, CEO of Get Satisfaction. "Our most recent enhancements to the product help companies get their communities up and running more quickly and make them easier to manage. Community managers can better recognize and reward members and guide conversations that deliver measurable outcomes. Community members benefit from having their questions answered more quickly. Everyone wins."

New features include the following:

  • Gamification motivates subject matter experts to increase involvement.
    • A community leaderboard showcases the most helpful and valuable members.
    • Reputation data allow members to gauge the credibility and trustworthiness of an expert's commentary.
  • Engagement tips and email triggers encourage members to be more active in a community.
  • Support for rich media makes it easy for users to add videos and photos to share advice, explain their problems, and give how-to instruction.
  • Private communities allow companies to augment their public customer community with private communities for special needs, or invitation-only access. Examples include beta testers, partners, and VIPs.
  • Assignments shorten case resolution time when community managers quickly route specific topics to employee experts.
