Got Wiki-mania? Consider All Your Collaborative Options
Indianapolis, IN (Vocus) June 17, 2008 -—
KNOVA, a Consona CRM solution and worldwide leader in service resolution and knowledge management solutions for the enterprise, has been identified as the most implemented knowledge management point solution in a recent Service and Support Professionals Association (SSPA) survey. The 2008 SSPA Member Technology Survey results underscore KNOVA’s continued commitment to providing intelligent customer service solutions that reduce service costs while improving customer satisfaction and increasing revenue.
The survey queried SSPA members about which agent-facing knowledgebase solution they currently use. KNOVA emerged with the highest market share among competing knowledge management solutions.
According to John Ragsdale, SSPA’s Vice President of Technology Research, “Companies are placing more emphasis on delivering a great customer experience, which cultivates cost savings, repeat business and customer loyalty. These companies rely on knowledge management to help them author content and spider existing documents, online forums and wikis. Knowledge management software makes that information available to customer service agents, and directly to customers via online self-service.”
According to KNOVA Enterprise Solutions Architect Nitin Badjatia, “Too often a resolution is lost due to an inability to adapt to the context of a question, widely dispersed information, or inconsistent answers depending on who the customer reaches. KNOVA bucks the one-size-fits-all approach to service resolution and instead provides a platform with the intelligence needed to recognize content and adapt to it—ultimately personalizing the customer experience. As a pioneer in knowledge management, KNOVA is committed to supporting this message and educating companies about the importance that optimizing the customer experience plays on their bottom line.”
With a nod to continued education on this subject, a new SSPA Webinar entitled “Got Wiki-mania? Consider All Your Collaborative Options” explores how companies leverage Web 2.0 technologies to accelerate support and call center operations. The 30-minute, on-demand minicast, hosted by Ragsdale and Badjatia is available now at http://www.thesspa.com/webcasts/emails/knova/06_12_08_knova.html.
