Knowledge Management tools and resources are the brain of your contact center, providing your agents with the information they need right when they need it…when developed effectively and working properly.   The effectiveness of your Knowledge Management tools have an impact on several of your key performance metrics, including First Contact Resolution, Sales Conversion Rate, Average Talk Time and Handle Time, as well as your overall Call Quality and Accuracy.

Those tools can also have other positive impacts on your operations by providing each of your agents the capability to handle a broader range of call types, requiring fewer skill groups and therefore enabling greater efficiency.   When leveraged into customer-facing resources, they increase self-service opportunities for customers who prefer finding their own answers, reducing your overall workload and improving customer satisfaction.
