MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - October 2, 2007) - eGain Communications Corporation (OTCBB: EGAN), provider of the industry's top-rated* customer service and contact center software for in-house or on-demand SaaS deployment, today announced a free Best Practice Assessment Study (eGain BPAS™) available to enterprise contact centers to support the Customer Service Week. Devoted to recognizing the importance of customer service and honoring the people on the front lines of the service revolution, Customer Service Week is an international event that was started by the International Customer Service Association in 1988.

Offered to qualified enterprise contact centers, eGain BPAS is a no-cost, no-obligation offer that provides an assessment of the following:

--  The objectives of the customer service organization/contact center and
    how they map to the strategic goals of the business
--  Use of customer service best practices leveraged by leading companies
    known for distinctive customer service
--  The gaps in technology, process and people that the organization needs
    to address in order to achieve its objectives

The eGain BPAS engagement involves the following steps:

--  A contact center/customer service best practices expert from eGain
    will spend one or two days on site to conduct the assessment. This will
    entail interviews with stakeholders such as contact center managers and
    executives, technologists and contact center agents.
--  Within four weeks of the on-site visit, eGain will provide a BPAS
    report that will not only include an assessment and gap analysis but also a
    step-by-step road map for customer service innovation and excellence.

"eGain's world-class clients have taken customer and agent experience to new levels," said Ashu Roy, CEO of eGain. "Many of them used eGain BPAS as a no-risk way to get started. We are pleased to offer this program to recognize the Customer Service Week."
