More Reasons You Love to Hate Your Knowledgebase: Keeping the Spark Alive
Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) May 17, 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, today announced an upcoming webcast, “More Reasons You Love to Hate Your Knowledgebase: Keeping the Spark Alive,” to be presented live on Thursday, May 19, at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET, by John Ragsdale, vice president of technology research, TSIA, and Keith Holt, senior solutions engineer, Consona.
This event will focus on ways to revitalize the use of an organization’s service and support knowledgebase and avoid issues like outdated or missing data, which can ultimately effect long-term customer satisfaction and loyalty. Attendees will learn specific tactics such as the use of integration and adoption strategies, ways to maximize successful self-service interactions, and how to leverage analytics to identify problem areas.
“TSIA members are reporting that after initial successes, many KM projects are quickly de-emphasized and, a year later, a once-popular knowledgebase stops delivering value,” said Ragsdale. “It is important for us to educate them on the causes and effects of this ‘launch and leave’ syndrome, so that they continue to see value from this technology through customer satisfaction.”
Ragsdale has been tracking this ‘launch and leave’ trend, which is fully described in an upcoming TSIA Executive Insight report titled “Ongoing Maintenance Required for Effective Knowledge Management: ‘Launch and Leave’ Cited as Most Common Reason for KM Project Failure,” co-authored by Holt. All registrants will receive an advanced copy of Ragsdale’s report.
According to the paper, “With more robust knowledge tools, accepted standards such as knowledge-centered support (KCS), and a growing population of expert knowledge management consultants, new knowledgebase projects for customer service have a high likelihood of success. But it turns out the real challenge for the project is keeping funding—and employee interest—attached to the project for the long term.”
