We took this to heart and put our Product Management and Development teams together at the end of 2006 to make our product process overall more agile. Key points Quarterly release process: every Feb, May, Aug, Nov you will see a release from us Service packs: applied automatically with no upgrade required Will be announcing a 24 month product support lifecycle will increase our ability to provide service due to fewer supported versions Will increase our ability to add more to the product 8.1 8.2 System Test 8.2 8.3 8.3 2008 Q1 2008 Q2 2008 Q3 2008 Q4 4

13 8.2 August 2007 Release What’s new… Sitemap Protocol Support
Live (Chat) Enhancements CAN-SPAM Best Practices Personalized Voice Routing Usability Enhancements Analytics Feedback

14 Sitemap Protocol Support
What are Sitemaps? Sitemaps are an easy way for webmasters to inform search engines such as Google about pages on their sites that are available for crawling. Sitemap Feature Description: Facilitates Google’s (and other major search engines) spidering of your public RightNow knowledgebase content. Benefits: Allows you to control how search engine spiders visit and consume your knowledgebase content. Helps your content be more available in Google/Yahoo web searches. What are Sitemaps? EMPHASISE THAT IF YOU’VE EVER HAD THE JOB OF OMPTIMIZING YOUR WEB SITE YOU KNOW HOW HARD THIS IS! Sitemaps are an easy way for webmasters to inform search engines about pages on their sites that are available for crawling. In its simplest form, a Sitemap is an XML file that lists URLs for a site along with additional metadata about each URL (when it was last updated, how often it usually changes, and how important it is, relative to other URLs in the site) so that search engines can more intelligently crawl the site. Web crawlers usually discover pages from links within the site and from other sites. Sitemaps supplement this data to allow crawlers that support Sitemaps to pick up all URLs in the Sitemap and learn about those URLs using the associated metadata. Using the Sitemap protocol does not guarantee that web pages are included in search engines, but provides hints for web crawlers to do a better job of crawling your site. Sitemap 0.90 is offered under the terms of the Attribution-ShareAlike Creative Commons License and has wide adoption, including support from Google, Yahoo!, and Microsoft.

15 RightNow Live (Chat) Chat Benefits
Drives self-service adoption by delivering superior online customer experiences that: Provide agents opportunities to drive customers towards self-service channels Helps build customer confidence in effectiveness and value of online channel Facilitates proactive customer engagement, which increases loyalty Helps drive online revenues by enabling successful transactions

16 RightNow Live (Chat) Enhancements
Improved scalability and customer experience Increased scalability of simultaneous chat sessions Callers are automatically reconnected with agent if chat session is dropped (dial-ups) Additional trending analysis capabilities Business users can see trend analysis on key interaction metrics - # of chat sessions, avg. wait time, avg. duration by agent/group of agents Full integration into the RightNow OnDemand Desktop With Smart Assistant™, agents see suggested answers based upon chat content with a single keystroke Agents can send a standard response with a single keystroke - for speed and consistency Agents can append chat history to existing incident Agents can store chat history for a contact without creating an incident Agents can create an opportunity within a chat session Agents can see the next chat session information automatically displayed in a tab with flashing indicator – “Push” capability

21 Marketing Enhancements
Built in CAN-SPAM best practices for campaigns Automatically tests messages for the physical address in the content, a working unsubscribe mechanism, and the customer’s opt-out preferences Provides a visual checklist of other CAN-SPAM compliance practices that should be evaluated prior to initiating the campaign Enhanced Outbound Customer Communication experience: RightNow 8.2 provides built-in CAN-SPAM best practices checks to help ensure that when organizations proactively reach out to their customers they are doing so in a manner that is inline with customer desires and within regulatory requirements. This is an informative capability and does not stop you from sending the campaign if you do not have a “pass” on all best practices.

22 Voice Enhancements Personalized One-Number Routing driven by phone # (ANI) lookup of contact info: Enhances the customer experience by automatically and dynamically personalizing the voice call flow and questions based on information about the customer. Examples: A “gold” class customer could be automatically routed to the specialized agent queue for gold customers A customer calls in and their last interaction with the company is a closed support incident. The voice system asks them whether they would be willing to participate in a brief survey regarding that experience A person who last purchase was a particular product could be presented with a voice menu with a cross-sell offer We do a lookup on contact record based upon the ANI for that inbound call. If match is found, we can pull back all contact profile info (such as customer class, name, etc.) and then alter the voice call flow based upon that info.

23 Analytics Usability Enhancements
Shared best practices reports Business users can create and save public reports Visually highlighted exceptions in reports Custom images are displayed next to cells in reports to indicate they are above or below pre-determined thresholds. Customizable number of rows on report display Business users can define the number of items they want to display on each report page Saved filter defaults RightNow user can save the last filter they used and store it in their personal preferences. Profile access rights reports Admins can create reports to display profile members and their access to capabilities such as create incident and create survey. Easily find users that have access to a particular capability when changing access rights Create public reports Associated custom visual images with rows in a report that exceed/fall below a pre-defined threshold number. Can now have saved filter defaults at the user level. If I am rep that likes to work incidents from oldest to newest in a list, I can save this as my filter default and that view will appear every time I go into that screen. This is a huge time saver and productivity enhancer. Can now run reports to see all access rights assigned to each profile. Useful for admins who need to make access changes or for compliance/audit reporting.

24 Visual Exceptions in Reports
Lighthearted demonstration of Visual Exceptions in Reports in action. Threshold set for total open incidents in queue. Show happy face if below 5 and show unhappy face if about 30.

25 Feedback Enhancements
Best practice trend reports Identify improvement or decline trends in areas of interest such as customer satisfaction Aggregate survey scores Text survey emotion detection ratings Emotion detection on text survey answers Determine the overall emotional sentiment for a particular text survey question. Gauging level of satisfaction with a newly launched product Monitoring post-call satisfaction trend Now have the ability to do best practice trend reporting on aggregated survey scores. We also now have the ability to do emotion detection on text survey responses using our patented Smartsense technology. Most traditional surveys force consumers/customers to place themselves into arbitrary buckets that are not natural – e.g. I am somewhat happy, very happy, etc. This is not very intuitive to humans. Frequently, the most powerful and insightful information is unstructured. Smartsense provides a mechanism for gaining insights from unstructured information embedded in surveys and permits you to take action upon it in real-time. You can create surveys with text response boxes and the have Smartsense assign a rating on a numeric scale to indicate whether that survey response is highly positive or highly negative based upon a customizable lexicon of terms. This can be coupled with trend reporting to be a very valuable tool for monitoring the overall sentiment of interactions over time if you do surveys after customer interactions…

29 End User Page Redesign - Home
Updated look and feel for our out-of-the-box end-user pages Given that we’ve been in business for quite some period of time, new technologies have emerged to enable richer web page design and interfaces. We decided that it was time to redesign our consumer-facing web pages by leveraging some of the newer technologies available. The result of the redesign is pages that appear even more familiar to consumers since they resemble traditional web pages and also contain familiar web-based navigation paradigms such as paging through results. Customers can also deploy the “classic” look and feel or the new look and feel in the November ’07 release.  It is a management and configuration option. 

30 End User Page Redesign - Home

36 Workspace Designer Usability Enhancements
Ability to Preview workspace Set profile access for a workspace area as read-only Preview in Workspace Designer will enable designers to view the workspace in a dialog with actual data from their site (save will be disabled). This allows them to see how the workspace will behave (field visibility, read-only-ness, required-ness) in the new and edit modes for the current profile. 1. New – clicking this button will invoke the preview dialog for the current profile in the new mode 2. Edit – clicking this button will invoke the preview dialog for the current profile in the edit mode if the id/refno has been specified. If the id/refno has not been specified it will drop the edit split button menu allowing the user to enter the id/refno (see Figure 2 below).

50 RightNow Connect Use Case Examples
Desktop Integration: An agent handling an inbound call needs to have access to the customer’s order information to see which products were purchased. They are able to view this within RightNow on an embedded tab that displays that customer’s order information in real time. Data Integration: The customer tells an agent that they want to update their shipping address. Through the RightNow OnDemand Desktop, the agent updates this information and RightNow Connect simultaneously updates the information in the order system and the customer database. Business Process Integration: The company has adopted a BPM system to manage the warranty claim process. When a claim is submitted, a contact center agent must follow up with the customer to gather additional claim information to process the claim. The BPM system uses RightNow Connect to create an incident to initiate the outbound call. Packaged Application Integration: A RightNow business partner provides a pre-built adapter for connecting RightNow OnDemand CRM to SAP for order initiation. Communications Integration: The agent accepts an incoming call and RightNow Connect enables the customer record to be identified and automatically presented to the agent.
