KANA and thinkJar Examining Multichannel Customer Service at CRM Evolution

KANA Also Showcasing Its New Customer Service Solutions to Conference Attendees

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 19, 2013) - CRM EVOLUTION -- KANA Software, Inc., a global leader in customer service solutions used by more than 900 organizations worldwide, will join industry analyst and thinkJar founder Esteban Kolsky for a CRM Evolution conference presentation today at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. The session, "Trends and Analysis towards Consistent, Contextual Customer Experiences," will examine advanced service management practices, including unifying digital, social and traditional support channels to deliver more consistent, favorable and affordable customer experiences.

Kolsky's presentation will highlight early findings from his 2013 Customer Service Channel Trends Study. Customer experience professionals are invited to participate in the brief online survey during the month of August, and can receive a white paper detailing results upon the study's conclusion.

"Businesses of all types and sizes face incredible pressure to serve customers and prospective customers reliably across a growing number of communication channels," said James Norwood, chief marketing officer for KANA Software. "They often have just one opportunity to get service delivery right at the risk of losing customers or damaging their credibility. Omni-channel service processes are paramount for sales and marketing success in today's 24/7 marketplace, and Esteban Kolsky is among the foremost authorities in helping customer service professionals identify and begin applying these best practices."

KANA, a CRM Evolution platinum conference sponsor, will also exhibit at booth #201 August 19-21, featuring its new KANA Enterprise omni-channel customer service suite designed to support end-to-end customer experience strategies. KANA will also exhibit its cloud-based KANA Express solution for midsize businesses. Both systems enable contact and case management, Web self-service, proactive and mobile chat, social listen and response, email management, and advanced knowledge management, among other capabilities.

KANA, which also serves more than 250 government agencies in addition to commercial enterprise and midmarket customers, has grown substantially during the past three years, increasing profitability and the size of its customer and employee communities. This month, KANA opened a new Overland Park, Kansas campus to address increasing demand for its customer service suites and professional services.
