The Consortium for Service Innovation, a not-for-profit alliance of service and support organizations, developed the KCS Verified program to distinguish knowledge management vendors whose products meet the practical requirements outlined in the KCS Verified Criteria. Supported by the Help Desk Institute, KCS is an emerging best practice for knowledge management in service and support organizations.

“The Consortium for Service Innovation is pleased to have Axonom distinguish themselves as a KCS Verified v4 vendor. The Verification process is thorough and challenging, and by completing the process Axonom has demonstrated they align with and can support the KCS practices,” said Greg Oxton, Executive Director of the Consortium for Service Innovation.
