Webinar Recap: Building the Business Case for LogMeIn’s Rescue

Valiant_Nucleus_Recap

In today’s multi-channel interactive environment, businesses must have the power to engage with both internal and external end-users at any time, on various platforms. LogMeIn Rescue enables companies to provide remote support to these end-users, be they employees, customers or partners.

Building the argument for utilizing Rescue was the focal point of a recent webinar presented by Rebecca Wettemann, VP of Research at Nucleus Research and Tom Clancy, VP of Valiant Technology. The webinar, “Building the Business Case for Remote Support,” discussed the growing enterprise need to deploy robust remote support technologies that are capable of meeting the evolving demands of the business world.

Can Rescue solve the multi-channel crisis?

Our social-, cloud- and mobile-enabled society is encouraging end-users to use various endpoints to interact with colleagues, partners and customers. It is also pressuring decision makers to be sure their remote support solutions and technicians can adhere to increasing expectations without putting too much strain on support staff.

Clancy, who uses Rescue at Valiant Technology, mentioned the remote support solution is allowing companies from all walks of life to improve service desk productivity, increase customer satisfaction and even accelerate query resolution times. Wettemann also revealed that Nucleus Research found Rescue customers were able to cut the amount of time it took to resolve an issue by upward of 70 percent, as compared to alternative solutions.

The fact that Rescue can improve support staff productivity, in addition to boosting customer satisfaction rates, has influenced many companies to implement the solution. Rescue enables them to truly optimize operations in and outside of the workplace, without straining their budgets.

Building the road map to Rescue

Wettemann asserted that there are generally several factors that contribute to whether a particular solution will drive value or not. In many cases, these considerations go well beyond the financial realm, dipping into end-user satisfaction and ease of use. By assessing these elements alongside long-term objectives, executives can build a strong business case for the use of Rescue in the workplace.

Evaluating Rescue requires decision makers to consider five key determinants, including how many people will use the application and how often those individuals will do so. Executives must also assess any potential risks associated with using Rescue, which could include unexpected costs if something were to go wrong, as well as any potential room for growth in terms of collaboration and knowledge generation.

To hear Wettemann and Clancy discuss crucial tips for decision makers trying to build a business case for remote support, and the key advantages Rescue can bring to a business, download and listen to the webinar now.

 

         

Mobile Engagement Defined

DictionaryMobile engagement is not advertising.  While the issuance of mobile ads is a discipline in and of itself, it is distinct from the concept of mobile engagement.  Mobile engagement is about communication or the facilitation of conversations between a business and a customer either in real-time or asynchronously, through a variety of connection channels. The widespread adoption of both smartphones and tablets, coupled with their constant connection to social media outlets, has shifted the customer/business balance of power squarely to the consumer.  Because of this phenomenon, “mobile engagement” today, looks much different than it should.  One of our hopes, over time, is to empower businesses to better understand mobile engagement so that they might embrace it, optimize it, and build competitive advantage from its superlative execution.

1.       Be a Closer, Not a Road Warrior.

When you have more airline and hotel points than sales, something needs to change.  The reality is that travel requirements may actually limit how many sales you can close.  Think about it – while you are sitting in an airport, riding in a cab, or picking up a rental car, you aren’t doing anything close to selling.  Add to that the administrative duties that are part of your job, and you’ll see that it is a miracle that you have any time in front of prospects at all!

Luckily, there is a smarter, faster way to get sales done.  Stow your travel bag and get busy with web conferencing and online meetings.  Efficient, convenient and a good use of everyone’s time, online meetings will get you in front of more people and generate more sales in a shorter period of time.  Tools such as instant screen sharing facilitate the meeting process, letting you get right to business.  But  watch out for complicated meeting software that require downloads and trip you up on system requirements. Focus on solutions that are intuitive and easy for everyone to use.  With online meetings, your stats will skyrocket, and you’ll get rid of that horrible jet lag once and for all.

Bringing B4B to Life: Moving from Disruption to Growth

b4bAs cloud computing continues to evolve and expand, business leaders need to recalibrate not only their firms’ internal operations, but also their understanding of B2B relationships.

This very topic was the focus of a recent webinar, “Bringing B4B to Life: Moving from Disruption to Growth.” The term “B4B” was coined by the Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) in a recent book of the same title. Essentially, B4B represents the next evolutionary stage of the previously dominant B2B model, one based largely on the “as-a-Service” model.

Organized by TSIA and LogMeIn, this webinar featured two presenters: John Ragsdale, Vice President of Technology and Social Research for TSIA, and John Purcell, Director of Customer Care Products for LogMeIn. These experts discussed the nature of B4B, its implications for the business world at large, and how firms in every industry should strongly consider adapting to this new paradigm.

The B4B shift

Early in the webinar, Ragsdale highlighted some of the key concepts featured in his firm’s B4B book. Specifically, he focused on how the rise of cloud computing services is leading companies to shift from CapEx to OpEx, thanks to the ongoing, service-based nature of these solutions.

Critically, Ragsdale emphasized that B4B represents a new relationship between business-facing organizations and their clients. In the past, firms would work hard to sell their wares to other businesses, and then would move on. With the cloud, though, this is no longer feasible, as businesses are selling services, rather than products. This means that ongoing performance and support are essential for maintaining satisfactory revenue levels.

This shift may not be easy for every company, but it is where the business world is moving. This webinar highlighted not only the differences between traditional B2B and the new B4B models, but also the intermediary stages many firms will go through as they evolve toward the latter.
