Case Study:
KANA Customer Service Software Reporting Delivered by JReport

KANA"JReport stood out for a number of reasons. For KANA, the level of support from Jinfonet through the evaluation process and beyond has been outstanding. The tech support person that we have been working with over the last 2 years is very, very good - knowledgeable and responsive. I deal with a lot of vendors and truly I can say that Jinfonet support is head and shoulders above every other vendor."

- Vikas Nehru, VP of Products for KANA

KANA Overview
Headquartered in Silicon Valley, KANA is a leading provider of customer service solutions for email, call center and web. The aim of their solutions is to simplify customer service while infusing intelligence into every customer interaction by providing real-time guidance and advice. Reporting is an essential component of KANA's customer service intelligence delivery, so when KANA made the decision to work with a new reporting vendor, they chose JReport.

The Need for Robust, Scalable Reporting
The KANA Software product line included a popular Windows based reporting component prior to JReport; however there were shortcomings that led KANA to initiate the process of looking at alternative solutions. KANA was clear on the criteria they sought in a reporting tool that would meet or exceed their expectations:

  - Setup and implementation needed to be easier and faster.
- Reports needed to be more intuitive for end users to work with.
- The ability to run ad hoc reports and quickly change the report settings for custom reports: Type of report, data selection, report scheduling, etc.
