SUNNYVALE, Calif. – January 28, 2002 — KMWorld has named eGain Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: EGAN) to its 2002 listing of “The Top 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management,” http://www.kmworld.com/publications/magazine/index.cfm?action=readarticle&Article_ID=1189&Publication_ID=63. KM World’s annual listing highlights companies that define and exemplify best practices in knowledge management, e.g., “market makers, solutions technology makers, solutions service makers and infrastructure technology makers. ” In selecting eGain for this award, KM World cited eGain’s new knowledge-based solution, eGain eService Enterprise (E3), as worthy of particular attention.
“eGain’s eService product suite is a great example of innovation in knowledge management,” said Hugh McKellar, KMWorld editor. “By making knowledge management the center of its solution, eGain enables companies to harness the power of their intellectual assets.”
eGain’s E3 product suite integrates eGain Knowledge across a variety of communications channels: email, chat and live Web collaboration, Web self-service, and knowledge support for phone-based service agents. Such integration enables companies to consistently support their customers across all touch points, allowing service agents and users to find the right answer to their query fast. Unlike search engines that deliver hundreds of references — many of which are irrelevant — eGain Knowledge uses advanced case base reasoning and intelligent search techniques to quickly identify the right answers and most relevant information for any given inquiry.
“KMWorld is rigorous in its evaluation of companies that are making significant contributions to the field of knowledge management,” said Gunjan Sinha, president, eGain. “We have worked hard to integrate advanced knowledge management capabilities with our full suite of products. Being named to the Top 100 List validates our approach and confirms our success to date.”
The leading information provider serving the Knowledge Management systems market, KMWorld informs more than 56,000 subscribers about the components and processes – and subsequent success stories – that together offer solutions for improving business performance.
