Las Vegas, NV: -- Cherwell Software, Inc. (http://www.cherwellsoftware.com) a leading developer of software products for the IT Service Management industry announced the signing of a third-party sales agreement with KnowledgeBroker, Inc. (http://www.kbi.com). KnowledgeBroker's (KBI) prepackaged computer support KnowledgeBase for Help Desk analysts and End User self-service is now fully integrated with Cherwell Service Management and offered as part of Cherwell's new "software as a service" (SaaS) model, Cherwell On-Demand. Cherwell plans to demonstrate KBI's support content in booth 234 at the HDI 2009 Conference and Expo in Las Vegas that opens April 6, 2009.
KnowledgeBroker's TotalBase for Cherwell improves call center metrics by increasing first call resolution rates, cutting inbound call times and streamlining support with immediate answers to user questions. It also reduces the number of inbound calls when accessed by end users. KBI's TotalBase provides first-tier support for more than 190 desktop applications.
"What we like about KnowledgeBroker is that they have the same mind-set as we do," said Vance Brown, Chairman and CEO of Cherwell Software. "We provide customers with Enterprise power at a mid-market price. It was only natural that we would partner with KnowledgeBroker to extend that enterprise power to include Knowledge Management."
"Companies are under constant pressure to cut costs and improve service," said Brad Stanley, Managing Director of KnowledgeBroker. "The combined power of Cherwell's On-Premise and SaaS models and KnowledgeBroker's TotalBase is an excellent combination in achieving this goal."
