JP Morgan Chase is constantly adding new lines of business (ex student credit cards, student loan programs) that have to be supported by email. Every time a new LOB is introduced, new rules and queues are written to handle the effective routing of this content. They have 2000 queues, thousands of rules and categories.

A combined implementation of KANA Contact Center, KANA IQ and KANA Response provides integrated phone, email and Web self-service assistance that has made it much easier for residents to find information about services including taxation, social services, passports, marriage and driving licenses.
Digital Credit Unit
DCU has strong e-service support for members, and members expect email and chat support. They have 50 call center agents dedicated to the email/chat channels. These agents are blended agents, and their top tier agents are assigned to email. They currently use KANA Response for email. They also were using eGain's ondemand chat solution which they are paying $70K per year for. Prior to KANA ResponseLive, they were using eGain chat. They were offering cobrowse and proactive chat, but found little need for these services. They have scaled back their chat offerings to reactive chat. They process between 4500-6000 chats per month. The business problem from an agent standpoint was to be able to offer a unified email/chat interface for agents for efficiencies of service as well as decreased training times.
Brighthouse has no statistics yet regarding the ROI of their chat implementation as they have just gone live in June 2008. However, they point to chat as a true customer service differentiator as very few telecom companies offer chat as a communication channel. Chat is offered on every single "contact us" page at Brighthouse, and they have seen an instantaneous uptake in this channel. In addition Response superseded Outlook as their ERMS tool. Response offers true reporting and SLA management through the statistics window which gives supervisors the ability to monitor the productivity of their agent community.
KANA enabled Elkjop to use an augmentation strategy around their POS as opposed to having to replace or try to update the POS system. This proved less costly and lowered the impact on transactions as they did not have to take the transactions system down for a replacement or upgrade. With KANA Contact Center, Elkjop can deliver faster, higher quality service because agents can easily find a single, unified customer record, use a complete and correct order history during the service call and effectively manage cases. Elkjop has millions of customer in KANA Contact Center, which makes this project potentially the largest deployment of Contact Center worldwide.
JetBlue promotes the message that the company "exists to provide superior service in every aspect of its customers' air travel experience." However, as the company continued to expand the customer base, the number of inquiries the airline received grew exponentially as well. JetBlue's standard of service became more and more difficult to maintain. As employing thousands more contact center agents was not a viable option, JetBlue decided that it needed to help its customers help themselves. Having implemented KANA Response in 2000 with notable success (a 77 percent accuracy rate in addressing its customers' needs in real time), the airline decided on KANA IQ to enable it to reach this goal.

Sears attributes the success of its unified contact center to several key factors. First, working closely with KANA, Sears designed the system for usability to make sure the interfaces are intuitive, which helps to reduce agent training times. Second, the built-in automated workflow parallels the existing process flows which agents must follow to answer a customer question, reducing implementation time. Finally, Sears heavily leveraged their agent community to define and refine critical functionality in the application. The benefits of the KANA-powered solution have been impressive. Since rollout in August 2007, the unified contact center desktop has led to a 50% reduction in training time, a 15% drop in call-handle time and a 10% drop in errors when fulfilling customer requests. In addition, agent turnover is less than 50%, which compares favorably to the industry average of 140%.
Starwood Hotels
Starwood chose KANA for their email, chat and knowledge management solution in January 2007, beating out eGain, ATG and Echomail. The reason Starwood chose KANA was because of their need to purchase all solutions from a single vendor, because of KANA referenceable accounts and KANA overall reputation in the marketplace. Peter Atkinson, Director of Global eCustomer Care, said that he talked to many KANA customers during the evaluation who conveyed to him that KANA solution was robust, scalable and dependable.
