InQuira Selected by MSC.Software to Power Web-Based Technical Support

Collaboration Features Key in Selection of Knowledge Management Platform

SAN BRUNO, Calif., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- InQuira, Inc., a provider of integrated software applications for web self-help, agent-assisted support and enterprise knowledge management, today announced that MSC.Software, the industry leader in enterprise simulation solutions that help companies make money, save time and reduce costs associated with designing and testing manufactured products, has selected InQuira to enrich their customer support experience. MSC.Software will use InQuira's knowledge management (KM) platform, InQuira Information Manager, to power all Web technical support interactions and provide a premier, best-in-class customer experience. MSC.Software chose InQuira for both its comprehensive, workflow-driven content authoring, editing, review and publishing capabilities, and its ability to harvest simulation knowledge from employees, customers and partners to make it accessible to consumers.

A 40-year veteran in offering game-changing simulation tools, MSC.Software supports thousands of companies in hundreds of industries, integrating information, technology, software, services and systems to enable faster and more efficient development of market-leading products. Simulation knowledge and process management are key components of MSC.Software's Enterprise Strategy. The company will integrate InQuira with its single sign-on platform and Oracle's service request management applications, and use InQuira Information Center as the external user interface, integrating MSC.Software simulation knowledge bases, collaboration framework and documentation into a portal-like knowledge application for customer service and online support. The initial deployment will power MSC.Software's Japanese support website. Deployment of an InQuira-powered English support website will quickly follow the Japanese implementation.

"We were seeking an integrated approach to achieving exceptional customer satisfaction, our number one priority. InQuira provided the only solution that was capable of capturing and distributing all of our simulation solutions knowledge with the integrated end-user collaboration required to satisfy the needs of our tech-savvy customers," said Jeffrey Graff, Director of Global Technical Support, MSC.Software. "InQuira's out-of-the-box ability to provide superior agent-directed KM, Web self-service, content management and analytics offers us a significant competitive advantage, and the fact that it easily integrates with the rest of our infrastructure means we can continue to focus on delivering the best possible technical solutions to our customer."

"Quality online and call center customer service is a top priority for companies with a technically complex product offering, as the user base has more complicated support needs and higher expectations for online self-service," said Mike Murphy, CEO of InQuira. "MSC.Software's recognition that their user communities can be a valuable source for harvesting new knowledge base content puts them ahead of the curve, and we look forward to helping them leverage their communities and employees to resolve customer support issues."
