CRM Consulting


Headquartered in Houston, Texas, ethosIQ’s cloud and premised-based software has been delivering business intelligence to multinational corporations and government agencies since 2009. ethosIQ’s award-winning software collects, correlates and leverages data from multiple, disparate systems, empowering organizations to make informed, real-time decisions. ethosIQ's software solutions provide analysis and actionable insights that enable clients to deliver a better customer experience while ensuring operational efficiencies and maximizing technology investments. ethosIQ presents the data that enables decisions in minutes, not days or weeks.
ethosIQ processes and analyzes raw data through the Customer Engagement Platform (CEP). The CEP software gathers data from voice, web, multimedia, back office and HR, to then convert the information into invaluable business intelligence.  ethosIQ focuses on three software verticals: eCCR (ethosIQ Customer Care Reporting), eUMS (ethosIQ Utility Management Service) and eLRM (ethosIQ License Resource Management).
ethosIQ’s eCCR helps clients measure and manage the customer’s journey throughout their environment. eCCRallows call centers to see results in real-time, review agent productivity, examine cradle-to-grave lifecycle of calls, report IVR utilization, manage call flow and much more.
In addition, ethosIQ’s offers eUMS, a solution that provides users the ability to collect, correlate and leverage universal utility data in real-time. eUMS manages lifecycle accuracy of order placement and payment of invoices. 
ethosIQ also provides eLRM, which provides users the ability to monitor license utilization, configuration and HR and IT integration. eLRM eliminates the lengthy and expensive process of traditional license monitoring.
Regardless of the service(s) deployed, ethosIQ’s solutions help clients increase revenue and efficiency, decrease operating cost, maintain capacity for growth and change and improve service and support through data analysis in real time.
