Lithium Technologies to Present at the SIIA Software Summit and CODiE Awards
NEW YORK – May 1, 2009 – Lithium Technologies, the leading provider of on-demand customer community solutions for the enterprise, today announced that its Chief Marketing Officer, Sanjay Dholakia, will participate in the Helping Those Who Help Themselves, Crowdsourcing panel at the SIIA Software Summit 2009 in San Francisco next week.
What: Helping Those Who Help Themselves, Crowdsourcing panel: Users find they get better support from the community than from vendors. Meanwhile, self-service support costs companies a fraction of the price of a staffed helpdesk. In the online era, the best answers come from the customers themselves. But this isn't a license to ignore customer problems; rather, it's a chance to rethink the role of support: To build and nurture the platforms on which a community of end users can help itself. This session considers the latest trends in online support, as well as some of the perils of doing it wrong.
Who: Sanjay Dholakia, CMO, Lithium Technologies
When: When: Monday, May 4, 2009 at 9:30 am PDT
Where: The Palace Hotel, San Francisco, California
During the conference, Lithium Technologies will also be recognized as a finalist for a 2009 SIIA CODiE Award in the Best Social Networking Solution category. This category aims to recognize the product or service that provides the best online social network for communities of people who share interests and activities.
