Current Knowlagent customers are ecstatic about the product and its benefits. That is the kind of company we will invest in regardless of the capital markets.” Knowlagents success in raising a large round in a difficult technology financing environment is a direct result of the strong success that its customers have experienced from the implementation of its e-Learning platform, said Mark Koulogeorge, managing director of First Analysis Venture Capital and member of Knowlagents board of directors. Customers are reporting improvements in customer satisfaction and contact center operational metrics, which delivers a compelling return on investment.
