Provo, Utah—January 6, 2010—XANT announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC) Customer Interaction Solutions® magazine, has named the XANT Lead Response Management (LRM) Suite as a recipient for a 2010 CRM Excellence Award. Customer Interaction Solutions has been the premier publication in the CRM, contact center and teleservices industries since 1982.

The XANT Lead Management Suite provides a premiere set of software and telephony tools specifically designed to lower response times, increase contact rates, and provide strategic sales intelligence for teams that want to maximize the value of every sales lead they receive.

“We’re incredibly pleased to receive this award,” said XANT President Ken Krogue, “and want to acknowledge TMC and Customer Interaction Solutions for their efforts in helping businesses find and use outstanding technology solutions.”

XANT CEO David Elkington added, “The CRM software industry is in a rapid state of change right now. I don’t want to say that standard CRM solutions no longer provide value, but it’s clear that extending the range of features, and increasing the value of CRM software means finding ways to dig deeper into companies’ workflow processes. There’s more opportunity than ever to push CRM software in new directions, in terms of pre- and post-sale functionality, and we’re gratified to see our Lead Response Management Suite recognized for its innovation in this space.”

“The Eleventh Annual CRM Excellence Awards has recognized XANT for being a true CRM partner to its customers and clients,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “XANT has demonstrated to the editors of Customer Interaction Solutions that their LRM Suite improved the processes of their clients’ businesses by streamlining and facilitating the flow of information needed for companies to acquire and retain their most precious asset…their customers.”

Based on hard data, the CRM Excellence Awards rely on facts and numbers demonstrating the improvements that the winner’s product has made in a client’s business. Winners were chosen on the basis of their product or service’s ability to help extend and expand the customer relationship to become all encompassing, covering the entire enterprise and the entire lifetime of the customer.

The 2010 CRM Excellence Award winners can be found in the May and June 2010 issues of Customer Interaction Solutions magazine.
