Rise in Popularity of Social Gaming Leads to Boom in Crisp’s Client Signings

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

  

 

Leeds, UK– September 24th 2010  Crisp Thinking, the global leader of community management and analytics technology for social media, announces a huge rise in signed deals with kids and teens virtual world publishers using the company's internationally recognised Community Management Platform - NetModerator.

 

Crisp's recent signed deals include online kid and teen space heavyweights Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, the LEGO Group, Kidzbop, Sweety High, Vizwoz, Bin Weevils and Weeworld.

 

The recent boom in Crisp's client signings is a reflection of the huge increase in popularity of social gaming and interaction online.

 

High profile companies are turning to Crisp because its unique single-platform Community Management System automates many vital functions, keeps companies COPPA compliant, has a proven accuracy rating of 98.4 per cent in the detection of online predators and cyber bullies and has been proven to save more than 80 per cent in moderation cost.

 

With MMO and Virtual World membership numbers increasing exponentially, companies are beginning to find that their own in-house systems are at breaking point and human moderation costs are soaring. The Crisp system allows companies to bring on huge numbers of new customers without the corresponding rise in customer service and moderation staff.

 

Adam Hildreth, CEO, Crisp Thinking says:

 

"As online social gaming and interacting have become part of our daily lives, Crisp has emerged as an essential tool for online businesses in the social space. More than 84 million young people around the world upload and download content every day. Socialising via web and mobile technology is part of our daily routine - it's how we communicate. The pioneers in the kid and teen social / gaming space who recognised Crisp products as essential to their business success have paved the way for all online social gaming and online communities. Just as we manage behaviour offline, the companies that plan for success in the online space understand the need to manage behaviour online. It's essential to ensure not only a safe customer experience but a good customer experience as well."

 

These new sign ups add to an already extensive customer base which includes– ZuCamp, Masher Media, Medikidz, SuperSecret, Six Degrees Games, Virtual Fairground, WishB, dPals.com, ReelFX, Zula International, Webbliworld, Vector Entertainment, Talentnation, Flipoutz along with Sony Online Entertainment and Cartoon Network.
