SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire -05/01/12)- What if your prospects could easily engage with your best customers, anywhere they wanted? Get Satisfaction, the leading customer engagement platform that powers 65,000 online customer communities for companies of all sizes, today announced significant enhancements to its customer engagement platform that expands the company's Get Satisfaction Anywhere strategy. Get Satisfaction Anywhere enables companies to engage with their customers anywhere they are: on their websites, within Facebook, via organic search and on mobile devices.
Today's announcement introduces Get Satisfaction Engage, a new widget architecture that allows community managers and business users to easily embed their customer communities in multiple online touch points within their websites and across product, e-commerce, and support pages. Get Satisfaction Engage brings the power of social conversations to web properties at any granular level. Get Satisfaction Engage is in limited availability today to select customers. General availability to all customers and prospects will be on May 30, 2012.
"For the first time, companies now can blend social conversations anywhere on their website instead of relegating social to separate 'destination channels' such as Facebook or forums," said Wendy Lea, CEO, Get Satisfaction. "Now customer conversations and advocacy -- the essential purchase drivers in today's socially connected world -- can be an integral part of any e-commerce site or web page, accelerating customer acquisition."
Get Satisfaction Engage Capabilities
Present pertinent social conversations such as Q&A, testimonials and praise that are contextually relevant to specific product, e-commerce, support and marketing landing pages.
Easily configure the look and feel of the customer community to your corporate brand.
Inline user experience
Embed customer community on any page of the brand site so that customers and prospects can engage in conversations without leaving the page.
Designate the functionality, content and headings for each instance of the embedded community to match its specific goals. For example, configure an e-commerce product page with only praise conversations or a support page with question and answer conversations.
Community managers can -- in minutes -- update customer communities as needs change, with no IT or webmaster help.
