Sandra Haimila, Editor at KMWorld, said, "Each year KMWorld looks for software products that break new territory in helping organizations achieve their knowledge management goals. These products are designed, developed and perfectly timed to fill a niche in the marketplace before users are even aware that such functionality and flexibility have been missing." eGain Virtual Assistant is a trend-setter because of its "usefulness, scalability and level of innovation," according to Haimila.
