This new partnership helps our customers align their usage of Consona Knowledge Management to support these practices and methodologies.
Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) June 16, 2011
Consona Corporation (Consona), a worldwide leader in providing customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and services for companies of all sizes, and Information Mapping, Inc. (IM US) announced today a combined services offering to help companies and organizations establish solid processes to develop and manage content through a systematic, research-based approach for capturing information and knowledge and developing high-quality, structured content.
This new offering, available through Consona’s Professional Services team, enables customers to improve knowledge management (KM) operations by promoting three key best practices:
1. Establish a knowledge-centric organization.
2. Align content with business.
3. Organize and present content clearly.
Information Mapping® is a research-based methodology created by world-renowned researcher Robert Horn over 40 years ago. The method’s six information types and research-based principles apply cognitive adult learning theory to all types of information, focusing not only on the end presentation, but also the upfront audience analysis and intuitive design which ensures that all information is user-focused and user-friendly.
“The Information Mapping® method focuses mainly on information and its intended audience, not specific management technologies, so it is a perfect companion to implementing information within Consona’s CRM and KM software applications,” said Kristen Merritt, director mapping solutions of IM US.
“Leading KM best practices and other methodologies are widely adopted in the high-tech product support industry because of the need for current, high-quality content to reduce costs, minimize risk and strengthen customer relationships,” said Tim Hines, vice president of product management, Consona. “This new partnership helps our customers align their usage of Consona Knowledge Management to support these practices and methodologies.”
