Oracle is pleased to announce the achievement of the latest KCS Verification v5 for Oracle Service Cloud Knowledge Foundation and Oracle Knowledge Enterprise. The Consortium for Service Innovation (CSI) has developed a KCS verification program, which is a formal process for assessing vendor tools and verifying their ability to support KCS practices. By meeting this series of functional criteria and required scenarios developed by CSI KCS experts, Oracle has successfully demonstrated both our cloud and on-premise knowledge products are enabled to support KCS best practices.

What is Knowledge-Centered Support (KCS)?

Knowledge-Centered Support is a proven knowledge management methodology developed for service and support organizations and tested by the members of the not-for-profit Consortium for Service Innovation. KCS is a rich methodology involving a set of practices for creating and maintaining knowledge in a support environment.  KCS Methodology is designed to help support organizations capture and structure knowledge in the context of customer interactions. Results include improvement in organizational efficiency, and higher customer satisfaction

How Does KCS Verification Benefit our Customers?

At Oracle we believe Knowledge Management is essential for delivering an exceptional customer experience, and increasing customer loyalty. In the contact center, access to timely information at the point of need is critical for empowered, efficient agents. On the Web, customers expect to find answers to their questions quickly and easily, when and where they need it. In order to deliver this experience knowledge must be delivered seamlessly, quickly and consistent across all channels.  The KCS methodology coupled with Oracle’s Knowledge Management products can help organizations solve incidents faster, improve time to proficiency and lower agent training costs by building organizational knowledge as a by-product of solving customer issues.
