Two highlights of the current version are presented in more detail. One of the highlight include the product name and the design and the second highlight is about the OMQ Assist.

At the end there is an overview of all further changes.

1. New product names and design

Version 9 of our customer service software comes with major innovations. Starting from this version all our products will be revised. This is reflected in the names. The OMQ plug-in is now called OMQ Assist, the OMQ self service becomes OMQ Contact, the OMQ service center becomes OMQ Help and the OMQ auto responder becomes OMQ Reply.

New products


We have decided to add city names to the individual versions. For all version 9.x we use names of European cities. Version 9.0 gets the name of our beautiful hometown Berlin.

2. OMQ Assist

The first product we have revised is OMQ Assist. We’ve redesigned this one from the bottom up.

Always the right solution

While the customer is typing in the search mask, an autocompletion is displayed. This is based on the spelling and the probability that the search terms lead to a correct result. In this way, the customer is always guided to the right solution.

Preview where it belongs

As soon as you move the mouse over an answer, the preview of the answers is displayed directly in the answer field. These are inserted with a mouse click. Your service staff will answer e-mails even faster and more intuitively.
