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 that it has sponsored and co-hosted a Webcast revealing best practices and top technology to achieve stellar and continuous customer service. The KMWorkd Webcast, "31 Flavors of Knowledge Management: Which Flavor is Right for Your Customer Service and Support?" was hosted by Consona with Yankee Group.
In the Webcast, Andy Moore, publisher of KMWorld, and Sheryl Kingstone, director, Enterprise Research at Yankee Group, join Michael Tarbet, vice president, Americas for Consona CRM, to discuss the different options for knowledge management and how each can help achieve consistently outstanding customer service. Basic knowledge management is presented as a no-frills search tool to mine a filing cabinet of documentation or present static FAQs. By adding capabilities, the next level of knowledge management can capture information on an ongoing basis by breaking it down into smaller pieces that will deliver more precise answers in the future. More advanced knowledge management tools will enable organizations to capture and expose knowledge through various Web 2.0 channels, such as self-service, forums, chat and social networks. Finally, for a world-class customer experience, top knowledge management tools can be fully integrated into a robust CRM system to improve every customer interaction that becomes more intelligent as it is used.
Consona's Tarbet noted how selecting the most effective knowledge management technology and approaches can pave the way to consistently outstanding customer service. "In our Webcast, we tapped into the leading experts in knowledge management to offer practical advice for improving customer service and support. By matching the most appropriate knowledge management tools with each organization's needs, one can be better equipped to achieve a level of service that customers find irreplaceable," said Tarbet.
