  • Enhanced Risk Identification: ensuring important issues don’t fall through the cracks

So whether a customer has a problem or presents an opportunity, EpiAnalytics makes sure that the right corporate stakeholder quickly receives the information.

“In today’s competitive business environment, every company must hold on to the customers they have, and at the same time ‘do more with less.’ This presents a challenge: cutting costs while maintaining customer retention. Smart Case is a very easy-to-use solution that helps companies achieve the balance of lowering costs while maximizing the customer experience,” said Jim Vecchio, co-founder of EpiAnalytics.

EpiAnalytics believes that the decision to deploy analytical solutions should not be complex. Instead, the decision should be guided by the rate of return on investment and the solution’s usefulness. Smart Case for the Force.com AppExchange eliminates the need for a separate data warehouse and the requirement for expensive business analysts. Smart Case’s easy-to-use, labor-saving features include: One-Click Integration™ and an apprentice learning system that learns from Agent activities and leverages existing business processes.

“The practice of solving simple business problems with multiple disconnected systems and dashboards has come to an end,” said Scott Austin, EpiAnalytics co-founder. “Smart Case for the Force.com AppExchange makes it possible to get useful and actionable information quickly and easily in one place. This means that powerful analytics can now be embedded into existing business processes without requiring multiple system integrations.”

“The power of Force.com AppExchange lies in its wealth of applications designed by companies with specific areas of business expertise,” said Clarence So, chief marketing officer at salesforce.com. “EpiAnalytics’ Smart Case helps salesforce.com customers to extend the value of their Salesforce CRM deployments with a solution targeted at getting their customers to the right resource quickly and efficiently.”
