NextPrinciples Launches Next Generation Social Analytics and Engagement Platform

Insight-To-Action Goes Beyond Listening and Engagement to Offer Companies a Solution to Integrate Social Conversations into Existing CRM Systems

MILPITAS, Calif., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NextPrinciples today launched Insight-To-Action, an integrated social analytics and engagement platform designed to help medium-to-large organizations create, manage and monitor lasting relationships with customers, influencers and prospective customers across all channels – social or traditional. Companies can now go beyond listening to the social web and engage with customers by analyzing results and integrating conversations with existing CRM systems, such as Salesforce.com, SugarCRM and Microsoft Dynamics.

"In today's fragmented marketplace, many social tools help brands either listen to or engage with customers," said Satya Krishnaswamy, founder and CEO of NextPrinciples. "Insight-To-Action not only provides an integrated platform for those social interactions but – most importantly – integrates seamlessly with CRM systems. CRM integration is crucial to providing a consistent and superior customer experience across all channels."

NextPrinciples, a ZDNet 2013 CRM Watchlist winner, is enabling leading brands to execute campaigns and events, manage the performance of their social portfolio, generate leads and provide customer care. The tight integration with CRM systems enables a closed loop process for influencers, potential leads and support cases identified over social channels.

"NextPrinciples has a rich and unique offering for the growing market in customer analytics and engagement," said Paul Greenberg, noted CRM analyst and author of "CRM at the Speed of Light 4th Edition." "Their applications are germane to the needs of businesses that care enough about their customers to want to know something about them - which should be everyone, in theory at least."

The launch of Insight-To-Action comes at a time when companies are looking to social technologies to produce significant returns on investment. Analysts estimate an annual value of between $900 billion to $1.3 trillion that could be unlocked by social technologies.

"The rich analytics enable organizations to move beyond vanity metrics of number of 'likes' and 'followers' and demonstrate quantifiable business benefits," Krishnaswamy said. "One of our customers gained an annual return of five times on their investment, while another was able to prevent a $15 million revenue loss by proactively managing an emerging crisis."

The platform offers integrated capabilities from monitoring and analytics, to engagement, to integration with CRM systems. The solution's superior usability ensures that users are typically up and running in less than an hour without any formal training or IT support. Insight-To-Action's platform includes four modules, including Campaigns and Events, Contact Management,  Community Engagement and Social Performance, and offers out-of-the-box integration with Salesforce.com, SugarCRM and Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
