The multi-channel KANA Enterprise product provides a unified environment for creating, executing, and optimizing the many facets of the customer service experience. Its combination of knowledge and case management, alongside visual process-management design tools and a dedicated service focus, differentiates it from business process management (BPM)-driven customer relationship management (CRM) solutions, vanilla knowledge management, and transactional CRM systems. The value comes from its ability to blend knowledge with operational processes to improve the quality of customer service at a time when service is rising on the strategic agenda.
Multi-channel proliferation is a big customer pain point. KANA SEM is a huge undertaking – you're trying to overcome years and years of inefficiency build-up.
Senior Analyst, Ovum
I think this is exactly the direction that the industry is heading and you're the first company to deliver it.
A comprehensive customer service suite … to meet all requirements.
… especially strong Web collaboration, email management, self-service, and knowledge management
Proven scalability and reliability. KANA is a good choice for companies that have a large number of concurrent agents and/or high volumes of customer emails, chats, and Web self-service requests. Customers with multi-thousand agent contact centers achieve sub-second response times with millions of customer records.
