HEADLINE: AUDI Licenses Hyperwave's Collaborative Knowledge Management System

DATELINE: BOSTON, Dec. 17, 2001

BODY:
eKnowledge Infrastructure Enables AUDI Employees to Answer Customer Queries Using Comprehensive Knowledge Database

Hyperwave Information Management, Inc. today announced that AUDI has licensed its eKnowledge Infrastructure collaborative knowledge management system for the AUDI AG Customer Care Centre.

As a result, employees can now answer customer queries using a new, comprehensive and always up-to-date knowledge database called @sk!. Hyperwave provides the core technology behind @sk!, which has been tailored to the specific requirements of the AUDI Customer Care Centre.

The eKnowledge Infrastructure is Hyperwave's suite of modular, collaborative knowledge management systems integrating content and document management, information access, work in process management, collaboration and e-learning capabilities. Each module can be used individually or together, providing organizations with a flexible information management environment that can be scaled to their requirements. The eKnowledge Infrastructure provides a comprehensive environment for the publication, organization and dissemination of information to support the entire lifecycle of knowledge within an organization. Using @ask!, AUDI employees can respond to customer queries faster and more efficiently. In the long term, this means lower costs for the automobile manufacturer due to shorter processing times and better service for customers and prospects.

Information previously stored locally within the call center and customer correspondence departments drove efforts to improve information management at AUDI. In addition, the volume of daily customer contacts in the Customer Care Centre is constantly increasing, so an efficient data supply for relevant employees has become indispensable. As part of AUDI's customer relationship management strategy, information management has been introduced and prioritized. The previously separate information is now integrated and networked in a uniform knowledge base.

The new information platform, @sk!, specifically meets these demands and provides better service quality. The user-friendly system allows employees to easily adapt the portal to individual needs. Users can select and expand a desired document/file structure from the general view of all information types. Multiple portal pages are served with relevant and up-to-date information in accordance with the role-based profile of their users. The system is flexible and, importantly, "File not found" errors are eliminated.

Currently, the data inventory in @sk! encompasses 8,000 documents. Content includes customer service information, technical vehicle specifications, sales manuals and press and marketing documents.

The knowledge system platform is constantly being improved and expanded to accommodate individual user groups. Currently, only the Customer Care division benefits from this technology, although, in the future, other departments inside and outside of Germany will be allowed to use the system. AUDI customers will profit from improved information management, and excerpts from the knowledge platform will be posted on the Internet in FAQ formats.

Default I can hear it now. Sorry Mr. Lindenfeld, I asked Jeeves and he says he doesn't know.

Anyway, it won't apply to us, the article is written in British!

Default Ha! "Umm, sir, I can't find anything about a 'DV' in the database, but your warranty is voided."

Oh, like this will help -- merely another excuse for insipid customer service.
