Independent Research Firm Names KANA a “Leader” in the Magic

Sunnyvale, CA -- (Sept 21, 2011 --KANA Software, Inc., a world leader in software solutions for Service Experience Management (SEM), today announced that it has been recognized as a Leader by Gartner, Inc in the 2011 Magic Quadrant for CRM Web Customer Service*. The annual report tracks changes in the web customer service software markets and analyzes market dynamics. KANA's evaluation is based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

"We believe our positioning in the Leaders quadrant is a strong confirmation of KANA's vision. With Service Experience Management (SEM), KANA has delivered a category defining solution that gives customer service managers' total control over their service experiences," said James Norwood, CMO of KANA. "Built on a context-aware service-oriented architecture (SOA), KANA SEM uniquely unifies customer journeys across the contact center, web site, and social community to deliver a complete and valuable vision for web customer service."

KANA Service Experience Management
KANA SEM has ushered in a new era of flexibility and control for web customer service by empowering customer service managers to rapidly design and deploy their customers' entire service experience processes. SEM transcends traditional solutions in which critical customer information resides in separate applications or silos that are difficult to integrate, making it hard for businesses to adjust quickly to changing business conditions.

"Gartner's in-depth evaluation process is unmatched in the industry," said Mark Duffell, Chairman, President and CEO of KANA. "We are honored to be positioned as a leader and believe this recognition is a direct result of our commitment towards our customers' success. Our focus on customers and delivering innovative solutions for their service operations will enable them to achieve their strategic goals and in turn help fuel our growth and success."
