AUSTIN, Texas, May 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Upland Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: UPLD), a leader in cloud-based Enterprise Work Management software, today announced a major release for RightAnswers, its KCS® v6 Verified Knowledge Management (KM) solution. This release delivers major upgrades to the user experience and features the release of a chatbot integration framework that facilitates the integration of third-party chatbot applications to improve user self-service initiatives. The release also provides knowledge managers with greater insight into knowledge maintenance and improves overall knowledge adoption within services and support organizations.

RightAnswers, Upland's cloud-based enterprise KM and self-service solution, delivers improved customer loyalty by providing relevant information across varied support channels including web, mobile, chat, and now third-party chatbot applications. Improved technology and growing demand has led to an increased adoption of chatbots powered by artificial intelligence (AI) in the KM space. Upland's chatbot framework offers third-party vendors a better interaction with the RightAnswers platform to deliver an improved customer experience.

Computacenter, the leading independent provider of IT infrastructure services and a long-time user of Upland's RightAnswers KM solution, is an early adopter of this latest release. Through this partnership, the RightAnswers KCS® v6 Verified KM solution will help Computacenter provide self-service support to end-users, allowing them to fix their own issues and find answers to their questions.

"We're excited to use the great features of this release." said Ross London, Global Knowledge Manager for Computacenter. "It will help with Knowledge Management process adoption, sharing, and collaboration, whilst ensuring our knowledge managers have the best possible insights into customers' demands, helping us deliver world-class service."

"Today, knowledge managers are looking for ways to run more efficiently and to get more value out of their KM investment," explains Kevin Sequeira, Senior Vice President of Product Management at Upland Software. "This latest RightAnswers release is built on direct customer feedback and is focused on the improved customer service and support experience."

Key benefits of this release include:

  • Enhanced customer support capabilities by enabling third-party chatbot initiatives, which utilize robust REST API's and chatbot framework powered by RightAnswers knowledge
  • Improved productivity and agent workflow through upgraded Solution Manager portal
  • Greater visibility into key knowledge management indicators across the knowledge base and organization via better reporting functionality
  • Improved administrator enablement through expanded user and group management controls
  • Enriched user experience through easier sharing of solution documents as attachments, a streamlined archive process, improved multi-ticket handling, and improved search capabilities
