AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 8, 2017 /CNW/ -- Upland Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: UPLD), a leader in cloud-based Enterprise Work Management software, is pleased to announce that its RightAnswers Enterprise Knowledge Hub version 9.0 knowledge management platform is the first application to achieve the highest level of Knowledge-Centered Services (KCS®) verification, version 6, by The KCS Academy.
RightAnswers knowledge management software integrates with any CRM or ITSM system and incorporates 70 KCS processes for customer service and support. In addition, RightAnswers has long promoted KCS principles and best practices to its customers as part of its Customer Success program. With the new version 6 verification, RightAnswers has a comprehensive set of offerings including KCS workshops, exams, and certifications, and a 90-day KCS onboarding program.
"PointClickCare is currently implementing the Knowledge-Centered Service (KCS) methodology using RightAnswers software and has a number of individuals who are certified in the KCS v6 Practices in preparation for the implementation," says Cheryl Wickwire, Manager of Customer Support Education & Release Management, who is certified in KCS v6 Practices at PointClickCare. "We are pleased to learn about Upland RightAnswers being the first KCS v6 Verified platform and look forward to our continued success together."
"The KCS methodology promotes Knowledge Management through its focus on knowledge as a key asset," says Kevin Sequeira, VP of Product Management at Upland Software. "With KCS v6 verification, RightAnswers' knowledge management software will continue to promote this methodology through industry-leading knowledge-sharing across the organization, increasing employee engagement, productivity, and efficiency."
"The KCS Academy is pleased to have Upland RightAnswers distinguish themselves as a KCS v6 Verified vendor. The Verification process is thorough and challenging, and by completing the process, Upland RightAnswers has demonstrated that they align with and support KCS v6 practices," said Melissa George, President & CEO of The KCS Academy.
