Brief: Co-browsing comes to CRM suite

Among the enhancements in the new version of Talisma's software is a feature that lets service staff take over customers' computers to guide them through online processes.

Talisma Corp. is out with version 6 of its Customer Interaction Suite. It includes roughly a half dozen multi-channel modules but has a real emphasis on customer service.

One significant enhancement is a new "co-browsing" feature that lets a service or tech support representative take over a customer's computer to help with a process like filling out an online form. The new release also ramps up online chat capabilities to support as many as 2,000 concurrent users.

Is hosted CRM right for you?

Back-end improvements include smart client technology from Microsoft to automatically send users updates and maintenance releases. Also, a software development kit will help companies integrate Talisma software with their ERP applications and other CRM systems.

"We can walk into any size company, [and] they don't have to rip out whatever they have running," said Talisma president and CEO Dan Vetras.

On the deployment front, Bellevue, Wash.-based Talisma is offering a 10-day rapid installation that's available for customers who license the software or decide to have it hosted.

The hosted software costs $200 per user per month. Companies can license 20 users of the suite for $100,000, including implementation fees.
