Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2012 - Giva® today announced a significant milestone in surpassing Salesforce.com Service Cloud® head-to-head in the competitive service cloud market. Giva benefits organizations with a strong focus on increasing first contact resolution, improving customer satisfaction, decreasing call volume with root cause analysis and exceeding service level agreements (SLAs). Giva's visual reporting tools make identifying trends and patterns easier and quicker and with less time building, running, sharing and reviewing reports. Based on word of mouth comparisons from customers that have utilized both service management packages, Giva's cloud computing SaaS (software-as-a-Service) solution has moved to a leadership role for IT service management for law firms, healthcare institutions and other high visibility professional firms.
For example, EDIMS, which provides 24x7 customer service to over 2,000 physicians and staff used Salesforce.com Service Cloud for three years before switching to Giva. Their reported results included a 45% increase in productivity, a 50% decrease in time required to open cases, and an 80% decrease in time to generate and approve knowledge articles, among other significant improvements.
"Giva is the 'Apple Computer' of cloud customer service applications."
"With Giva, it now takes 50% less time to open a case, so our agent productivity is effectively doubled when the call queue is full and the phones are busy ringing," said Chris Jerry, EDIMS Support Center Manager. "We used to spend over 24 hours per month working with the reports to extract data. Now, we spend about 15 minutes per month generating reports and the information quality is superior. Giva is the 'Apple Computer' of cloud customer service applications." [Click to download the case study.]
"Unparalleled ease of use is a significant Giva differentiator and an area in which Giva will continue to provide radical innovation," said Ron Avignone, founder of Giva, Inc. "Giva can be deployed in just days and agents can learn to be fluent in just one hour. By providing a more streamlined customer service tool, we are confident that we will continue to win over the service cloud."
