SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 25, 2012) - ServiceSource® (NASDAQ: SREV), the global leader in Service Revenue Management, today announced that its partnership with Cardiac Science Corporation, a global leader in automated external defibrillator (AED) and diagnostic cardiac monitoring devices, has resulted in a double-digit percentage point increase in renewal rates for their program management and AED service offerings. ServiceSource has supported the Cardiac Science "Proper Program Design" initiative that educates customers on the importance of a properly designed AED program to save more lives.
The Cardiac Science AED Program Management offering addresses all the critical components of a company's AED program, which includes training employees to use the devices, proper AED maintenance, tracking of AEDs and responders, and the medical oversight by a licensed physician. Cardiac Science Corporation began its partnership with ServiceSource in 2010 to support the program management and service-contract operations that complement their defibrillators. The company chose ServiceSource for its experience with the world's top healthcare and life-sciences brands, its purpose-built technology platform, and team of seasoned service sales experts.
"Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in the US and it's essential for people to have easy access to an AED. The goal of our program management is to help enable the best possible outcome when sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) occurs," said Sandi Bronte, Program Management Renewals Manager, Cardiac Science Corporation. "The experience and skill of the service sales experts from ServiceSource has allowed us to significantly increase renewal rates and to use the intelligence to deliver more customized solutions to customers that, in the end, can help save more lives."
ServiceSource helps Cardiac Science customers renew the vital Cardiac Science AED program management solution. This process has meant significant increases in conversion rates for the Cardiac Science solution and ultimately reinvestment back into its product portfolio.
"The relationship with Cardiac Science is unique and demonstrates that good things can happen when an organization unlocks the power of recurring service revenue," said Mike Smerklo, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, ServiceSource, Intl. "We are proud of the good work of the partnership and that we can help Cardiac Science in their quest to save more lives."
