Artisoft and Cynergy Software Launch Cost-effective CRM Solution

12/1/2003 - Artisoft®, Inc., (OTC: ASFT), developer of the first software-based phone system, and Cynergy Software Corporation, a leading help desk software and CRM solutions provider, announced the availability of a cost-effective CRM solution. The integration of Artisoft's awarding-winning PBX, TeleVantage® 5.0, with Cynergy Software provides exceptional desktop application usage for service desks, help desks, and remote technicians. This strategic relationship, formed under Artisoft's Open Communication Alliance, empowers both companies to promote the solution to their respective channels.

"Cynergy Software was the answer I was looking for in a web-based help desk application that works with TeleVantage. Screen pops on TeleVantage were seamless, and the outbound dialing fits our business model perfectly," said Jim Trimble of Satcom Industries. "We are able to log tickets and our customers are able to log their own tickets over the web, both of which automatically send e-mails to whoever we set up. This saves our technicians immeasurable time."

The joint solution enables TeleVantage customers who are connected to Cynergy's web-based help desk application to have screen pops for inbound customer service calls, Integrated Voice Response (IVR) connectivity for call routing, and outbound desktop dialing for customer service call backs and CRM flexibility. In addition, Cynergy delivers web-based support for the remote technician onsite, as well as a vehicle to track issues and inform customers of up to date changes in the issue or ticket.

"TeleVantage is uniquely positioned in the help desk market. This integration reaffirms Artisoft's commitment to providing customers with help desk solutions," noted Rob Black, Product Marketing Manager of Artisoft. "The Cynergy product is particularly noteworthy because of its strong computer telephony integration with TeleVantage and this partnership opens up new sales opportunities for the Artisoft channel."
