SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/14/13 -- Get Satisfaction, a community platform for creating engaging customer experiences, today announced it has been selected by Extreme Networks, a leader in high-performance Ethernet switching for cloud, data center and mobile networks, to unleash the power of conversation and help the company align around the voice of the customer to drive innovation.

"At Extreme Networks, we realize that brands are only as good as what their customers say about them," said Vala Afshar, CMO of Extreme Networks. "Knowing this, we have long differentiated on providing a great customer experience and have built our brand by listening to our customers. With our new Get Satisfaction-powered community, we'll be able to ignite customer-led innovation by engaging our customers in conversations with our engineering and support teams."

Get Satisfaction recently redesigned its community platform to foster even deeper customer engagement and help companies more effectively gather and leverage voice-of-customer insights across marketing, product, sales and support teams. Extreme Networks will tap into that powerful community platform to propel its customer-first strategy forward.

"Our commitment to customer service and support is what makes us stand apart from our competitors," Afshar said. "By enabling our customers to engage with our brand in an open and public forum, we can give voice to our customers and make sure they are pleased with our product roadmap, support and overall brand identity. This is the new generation of a customer-first company."

As competition increases across industries, the companies that are seeing the most success are those that truly understand their customers and differentiate on customer experience. By leveraging Get Satisfaction's integration with Salesforce and Marketo, Extreme Networks will have a 360 degree view into its customers and will be able to use that insight to inspire product ideas, generate authentic word of mouth marketing content, and continue to provide award-winning customer service and support. Despite having an already high Net Promoter Score of 81 percent, Extreme Networks continues to strive to increase its customer loyalty and customer satisfaction; its investment in a customer community platform is one more example of this commitment to its customers.

"Extreme Networks and Get Satisfaction share a united vision that centers on the voice of the customer," said Get Satisfaction CEO Wendy Lea. "It's inspiring to see how Extreme Networks embraces conversation and collaboration with customers as fuel for growth across the company. We're looking forward to helping Extreme Networks take their customer-first strategy to the next level."
