Agents no longer need to spend time searching for the best answer because KANA knowledge-infused process delivers the right ones straight to them. Every agent is advantaged. And every customer benefits.
Balance your business goals with customer needs.
You've calculated the cost of agent assistance down to the minute. Now wouldn't you rather have those agent minutes focused on the customer than spent on search? That's what KANA Enterprise Knowledge Management software enables. Knowledge management puts intelligence at your agents' fingertips for fast, accurate and consistent response. Rather than search the knowledge base, agents are assisted by it. You'll find that agents don't need extensive and costly training to deliver high-quality results.
Every inquiry is evaluated in terms of a multitude of contextual specifics—customer value, type of inquiry, previous purchases and more—infusing the process with knowledge. Unlike narrow keyword searches, context-driven search provides many paths to knowledge, including clarifying questions and guided assistance to increase proficiency. With the contextual smarts of KANA’s Knowledge Management software, agent intelligence goes up and resolution time goes down.
Next: Pain Point
Smart agents who can't find answers in the knowledge base simply stop using it.
Control the process. Improve the outcome.
When the knowledge base isn't integrated with your agent desktop, too much time is spent on dead-end search. Agents have to translate the context of the customer conversation into 3-4 keywords and then search the knowledge base. It doesn't take many failed attempts at retrieving answers before an agent starts looking elsewhere to solve problems—a sure route to inconsistent service.
KANA Knowledge Management software integrates your existing knowledge bases with your contact center desktop, automatically feeding the context of the conversation into search. And answers are fed back to agents naturally, as part of their work process, guiding them to consistent, accurate answers and fast resolution.
Increasingly, many of the demands put on agents require information that isn't part of a traditional knowledge base—like transactional information from customer information repositories such as orders, billing, reservations and inventory. And many businesses have the relevant data, but aren't making use of it. Fortunately, KANA’s Knowledge Management software provides a good solution. It extends the reach of the knowledge base to all enterprise data, including external systems, and makes it available across your agents and communication channels.

Next: Unique Difference
You want an extensive knowledge base that has it all. But you don't want your agents to spend time navigating it. After all, research costs call time. KANA Knowledge Management software shortens the distance from research to resolution.
Balance your business goals with customer needs.
To provide efficient service, answers need to be easy to find, but they also need to be informative and actionable. And that's what our Knowledge Management software system delivers—the right answers, right to agents—right from the knowledge base. The universal knowledge base goes far beyond the traditional knowledge base to span all enterprise data, including a wealth of transactional data, knowledge about customers and previous purchases. It's a far stronger resource for agents and what makes context-driven search possible.
The right knowledge management software transforms static help pages and FAQs into a dynamic resource that speeds up time-to-resolution. All the information is in the knowledge base, but all the answers are at your agents' fingertips.
And it doesn't stop there. Real-time authoring tools enable authorized agents to contribute solution content as they resolve inquiries, continuously building it out and making it better. With KANA Enterprise Knowledge Management software customer service managers can point-and-click their way to create an unlimited number of virtual knowledge bases, tailored to support the needs and requirements of a particular business process.
The KANA Enterprise platform is designed to fit into your existing architectural framework and application ecosystem to deliver business flexibility, cross-channel consistency, and good experiences in customer service.
Scalable to growth. Adaptable to change
The KANA Enterprise platform leverages your existing technology investments by integrating with your enterprise data, applications, and messaging systems. The platform is built on service-oriented architecture (SOA) standards and designed for effective customer experience management. That means costly point-to-point integration and application upgrades are simplified, unburdening IT in the process.
The Design-Orchestrate-Listen methodology, the cornerstone of KANA Enterprise, enables interfaces to be created visually and/or automatically. Any enterprise system can be tapped into—typically without requiring re-write or replacement. That means customer service managers can implement rapid change to the customer experience without putting additional strain on IT.
Service experiences, delivered through the adaptive desktop, are consistent across communication channels—phone, email, chat and social communities—even when your customer base doubles in size or product development takes an unexpected turn. Business is happy. Customers are happy. And IT, well, they just can't stop smiling.
Don't write code. Use KANA Services for Messaging, Knowledge Management and Case Management. KANA Enterprise blends Knowledge Management into case management to create a new generation of knowledge-infused customer service solutions. KANA Enterprise also is BPM for the customer service process: the first true example of the power of standards-based BPM principles being applied to a process-specific SOA platform. Messaging services provide gateways to customer conversation channels – ranging from phone, email, chat and web forms to social channels.
KANA Enterprise is able to Orchestrate across all of your data, transactions and content because the Design-Orchestrate-Listen methodology is hitched to a powerful Integration Hub. KANA understands that delivering technology components or parts of a solution isn't sufficient to meet the demands of today's customer service organizations. It will always be necessary to integrate with other corporate solutions. KANA delivers on this important requirement by bringing you a customer experience management solution that not only is cohesive and adaptable but that provides refined access to your other enterprise systems. The result is a complete customer experience ecosystem that gives your service management team end-to-end control of the customer journey across channels.
Your customer experience management team can use the immense power of reports, dashboards and analytics that come out-of-the-box with KANA Enterprise. Or you can integrate with the Business Intelligence tool of your choice.
The incredibly context-rich, cross-channel session information that flows from the KANA Enterprise platform provides significantly better grist for your BI mill. More granular information about the service experience means your standard reporting and analytics tools will yield greater insight. Use it to drive real-time optimization and refine your customer service management strategies.
KANA Enterprise can be deployed on premise or in the cloud—whichever best meets your needs and budget requirements.
