Vendor Landscape: Customer Service Management Suites

Mobile support is improving, but social continues to underwhelm.

  • Customer Service Management (CSM) suites are important for efficient resolution of customer inquiries across all support channels.
  • Organizations need to select a product that will allow them to look into the future of customer service in social and mobile areas.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • Info-Tech evaluated ten competitors in the Customer Service Management market.
  • Although this year Info-Tech saw an improvement in mobile capabilities, lack of support of the social channel was underwhelming.
  • After testing the market for proactive social media management capabilities, Info-Tech concluded that proactive social customer service delivery will likely require third-party listening and response tools for at least 1-2 more years.

Impact and Result

  • Narrowing down top CSM vendors and their products is truly based on your organization’s size, budget, and vision of newer support channels, such as social and mobile.
  • Save time and money by comparing and contrasting the major CSM vendors, and then create a shortlist of the most appropriate vendors.
