Testimonial: I have found that the new HDAA Knowledge Base reduces the time it takes me to research industry stats & reliable information for the ITSM sector. It’s easy to use search functionality encompassing KCS principles, helps to filter & tailor my searches more accurately & there are numerous new services now available through the website. Every time I return to the site there is new information published. Very impressive.

Benefits of KCS


KCS Benefits

KCS allows the support organization to resolve five to ten times more customer issues at the same or lower cost as well as identifying opportunities to improve the products based on the customer experience. 


The near-term benefits of KCS as experienced by the Consortium members who have adopted the methodology include:

  • Improved resolution times by 25 - 50%
  • Improved first call resolution and reduced escalations


Longer-term benefits include:

  • Dramatic improvement in user success with self-help via the web
  • Reduced training time for new employees
  • Improved Support Analyst skills, job satisfaction and confidence
  • Product improvements based on patterns and trends of the user experience


The degree to which the Support Analysts consistently capture, structure, reuse and improve knowledge as they resolve customer issues is directly related to the degree to which the organization will realize the benefits of KCS.  Maximizing and sustaining dramatic KCS benefits is fundamentally about people and their understanding, buy-in, beliefs and behaviors. The workflow model, content standard and technology are enablers.


We have found that people aren’t likely to do things if they don’t understand why they are doing them.  And therein lies the challenge. 


Coaching and validation of understanding through certification are important elements in promoting understanding and changing behaviors.   To fully realize KCS success, the Solve Loop practices (capture, structure, reuse, improve) have to become a habit for Support Analysts, not something they occasionally do, or something only some of them do. 


The Power of Certification
