During the annual members’ summit of the Consortium for Service Innovation (CSI) in Boston in April, discussions and presentations focused on data, automation, machine learning and collaboration. It’s clear that the service and support industry is deeply affected by the changes posed by new technology. As data becomes one of the most valuable assets organizations have, and as machines take care of customers to a greater and greater extent, we must realize that little will stay the same moving forward.
To succeed with self service, the knowledge base needs good searchability and to generate relevant hits. In ComAround Knowledge™ it is the search bar, which is based on the powerful search engine Microsoft Azure Search, that technically enables the search itself. The searchability of the content is largely determined by structure and wording, and this is where you and your colleagues can make a difference. In this article you will get several handy tips!
Many support organizations have started to align their support model with Knowledge Centered Support (KCS) as their methodology for working effectively with knowledge. In this article we reply to the most commonly asked questions related to the adoption of KCS.
ComAround was recently a vendor sponsor of the Fusion 15 Conference & Expo in New Orleans. The discussions have definitely changed since last year’s conference, with an increased focus on knowledge. Many of the attendees we spoke with had great interest in learning how to effectively leverage their existing knowledge base.
As a partner of Cherwell, ComAround was a platinum sponsor at the third annual Cherwell Global Conference in Colorado Springs on September 1-4. The many interesting discussions we had with the attendees demonstrated that there is a great need for accurate and relevant knowledge base content within support organizations today.
At the HDI 2015 Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, we experience, both from participants and the conference program in general, that there is a heavy focus on knowledge, KCS, integrations and beyond IT (HR, Marketing, Finance and so on.).
It is no secret that “Knowledge” is the keyword in the support industry in 2015. ComAround recently took part in the IT-support & Service conference in Stockholm with the focus on the support organization’s knowledge. How do you capture this knowledge and how do you make this build value in the company?
