August 11, 2017 - Cherwell Software, a leading provider of service management solutions, announced today a new release of its flagship product, Cherwell® Service Management. The latest version of the product offers enhanced multi-lingual support to customers, along with UI/UX and back end enhancements to the Cherwell Self-Service Portal and Service Catalog that create a more modern and intuitive web-browsing experience, as well as reduce development costs and time to market for new capabilities.
The emphasis on globalization—which provides localized content both to technicians via the product interface, as well as to geographically dispersed end users via the Cherwell Self-Service Portal—signals Cherwell’s commitment to its rapidly growing array of international and global enterprise customers.
According to a study recently published by HDI and LionBridge, among organizations that provide multi-language support, 73 percent have higher customer satisfaction (CSAT) scores, and 43 percent have improved first contact resolution than organizations that do not.
"As our world continues to shrink, it is important for support centers to expand their ability and range of service by adapting to service in multiple languages," said Roy Atkinson, senior analyst, HDI. "A support center that can deliver on multilingual service will have an inherent advantage in the marketplace, with the ability to support markets that its competitors cannot."
With the new localization capabilities, Cherwell customers can deliver more consistent and personalized support based on individual users’ native languages and/or geographic locations—without increasing service desk overhead. The latest release of Cherwell Service Management offers the following features, which are designed to help global customers improve business-IT communication, lower the cost of support, elevate IT service quality, and boost end user productivity:
“Managing the IT complexities of a global organization are challenging enough; but with technicians and business users scattered around the world and expectations for around-the-clock support, language differences compound those challenges exponentially,” said Steve Rodda, Cherwell’s Chief Product Officer. “We’re excited to add comprehensive localization capabilities to Cherwell Service Management, so that service desk teams and end users alike can collaborate and communicate effectively, and ultimately move at the speed the business demands.”
