Soffront was founded in October 1992. We launched first commercial software for Contact Management, Customer Ticketing, Asset and Defect Tracking Software, all in a single system, in February 1993 at a conference in San Jose, California. At the conference, we showcased our CRM software to track ALL customer communications, products sold and serviced, customer complaints and remedies, product defects and enhancements, and customer feedback.
This was a brand-new concept of a software managing customer communications and tracking customer calls and reporting various matrix of open/close tickets and trends.
At that time, most businesses used paper and pencil to record customer communications. Not to mention, there were no internet or the Web!
Our focus at that time was to educate businesses the importance of a CRM software to manage customer complaints, communication, customer assets, and maintain product catalog and product quality.
During the next few years, Soffront grew rapidly. Many large corporations such as HP, Charles Schwab, signed up as our customers. During this time, we introduced two significant modules…Business Rules Engine to define IF-THEN-ELSE rules for an organization and a Knowledge Base module to store solutions for all the past customer issues and find them easily.
In the late 1990s, Soffront evolved, introducing our first Web version using Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle SQL server as backend. In addition, we introduced another groundbreaking concept… the email blast and email marketing.
Our Growth continued. In 1999, we established our Indian Software Development Center in Kolkata, India and in the early 2000s we introduced a Hosted version as Software as a Service or SaaS. We used data centers to host our servers until Amazon introduced AWS.
