Indianapolis — May 12, 2010 — 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 co-hosted a webcast revealing tips to help keep CRM and knowledge tools in shape for continuous top-notch customer service. Now available on demand, the Webcast, “Four Reasons You Love to Hate Your Knowledgebase: How to Mend a Broken Relationship with Your Knowledge Assets,” was co-hosted by John Ragsdale, vice president of technology research at TSIA, and Consona’s Seth Marlowe, director of America sales.
In the webcast, Ragsdale and Marlowe identified outdated, ineffective or otherwise “broken” knowledgebases as the source of angst among many service and support managers, and a driving force behind unsatisfactory customer service. They noted that viewers should start asking some questions to determine whether it’s time to make a clean break with their old knowledgebase, such as:
- Do your metrics measure the things that you should truly care about?
- Can you ingrain knowledge management into every service and support channel?
- Are your old tools lacking the features and functions to service new and emerging channels?
- Can you depend on the Cloud for hosting service and support apps?
After a look back at some specific causes and effects of broken CRM and knowledge tools, Ragsdale and Marlowe took a look at the future of customer service and support, providing some insight on how service and support managers can begin to build a better relationship with their knowledge assets.
