PROS Honored with Society for Technical Communication Intercom Award

Intercom Editorial Advisory Panel and STC Board of Directors acknowledge PROS Content Strategy Team

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 25, 2017-- PROS (NYSE: PRO), a cloud software company powering the shift to modern commerce, today announced it has been honored by the Society for Technical Communication (STC) as the recipient of the Intercom Award for Outstanding Magazine Article. PROS received the award during the STC Honors Reception at its annual Technical Communication Summit, the premier conference for technical communication education and networking, at the Gaylord National Resort in Washington, D.C.

The STC selected the winning PROS article, “Measuring Content Like a Marketer: Getting Started with Web Analytics,” for clearly and enthusiastically explaining how to collect quantitative and qualitative data about web-based help and support content, how to use it to strengthen future content and how to persuade stakeholders of the value of technical communication. The article, focused on the PROS Connect customer support portal, was written by three members of the PROS Content Strategy team: Jenn Carlos, PROS senior corporate communications manager; Vivianne Costa, senior product manager; and Travis Kelly, content strategist. Both Costa and Kelly hold Google Analytics Individual Qualification (GAIC) certifications.

“Analytics is the engine that drives our customer interactions. Being able to measure and understand the effectiveness and impact of those interactions helps us drive more successful customer experiences,” said PROS Senior Vice President of User Experience & Science Jeff Robinson. “Understanding the effectiveness of our ‘help’ content enables us to serve our customers more efficiently. Measuring how people interact with our content can be very complex, and on behalf of PROS I want to sincerely congratulate the team for earning this prestigious award.”

PROS Connect is the entry point for customers to submit support tickets for technical questions related to the company’s product portfolio. Data is captured directly through a tracker to enable the content strategy team to monitor content performance and user behavior with all “help” resources. PROS uses the data to understand how to increase the breadth and “findability” of high-performing content, optimize low-performing content and ultimately take the guesswork out of where to begin.

“On behalf of the Content Strategy team at PROS, we are honored to receive this award,” noted Carlos. “We hope the insights empower others to explore their content and fine-tune its impact through analytics. Here at PROS, analytics empower our business, so it’s rewarding that our efforts to make content relevant and helpful to customers is being acknowledged as the industry standard.”
