Serving global clientele across multiple industries since 2001
Knoah Solutions has been providing customer experience management solutions to small and medium-sized businesses and Fortune 500 companies alike.
Our operations began in Hyderabad, India in 2001 with a small technical support email program for a growing internet provider, who is still our client today. We have grown our operations to include multiple customer engagement solutions offered through a variety of contact channels and handled in a diverse range of languages from our global delivery locations.
Over the course of 17 years, Knoah has reached numerous milestones:
- Expanded from one location in Hyderabad, India to four locations, including moving our corporate headquarters to Las Vegas, Nevada; and our newest location in Tegucigalpa, Honduras
- Grown from 20 employees, in 2001, to over 2000 employees worldwide
- Carved a niche as the earliest adopter of the chat customer contact channel
- Honed strong quality processes which led us to the development of TotalAssure QA, our third party quality assurance monitoring solution
- Developed our innovative workforce management optimization platform, KnoahsARK
The customer experience is paramount at Knoah and our commitment to exceptional customer support will continue to be our highest priority. Know will continue to lead the way in providing innovative and creative solutions to meet the needs of you and your customers today and in the future.
We want to thank our loyal and talented team, clients and partners for their contribution to our success story.
Knoah has always balanced bedrock principles of customer support with an eye toward innovation.
When we began in 2001, our primary focus was to help organizations respond to their customers making contact through new communication channels. As customer service technology evolved, so did we. By always offering the solutions for the consumer channels in demand, we were able to become the go-to support partner for many companies, including Fortune 500 corporations.
Our success has allowed us to expand our operations to new locations and service options. Now, we not only provide customer experience management solutions and back-office services for businesses both large and small, we also offer third-party quality assurance monitoring services with trained evaluators, coaches and our internally-developed analytics software, KnoahsARK, to help companies evaluate, measure and train their own customer service staff that create the quality of care today’s customer demands.
OUR MISSION / VALUES
From the start, our goal has been to take the guesswork out of customer service.
Our experience and state-of-the-art technology helps our clients measure consumer satisfaction and see a quantifiable return on their choice to work with our organization.
We want to establish an open and honest partnership with every company that uses our services. Working together side by side, we strive to introduce third-party services, new software tools and management solutions that not only yield greater transactional revenue through increased early engagement and upsells, but leave a business’s customers satisfied after every brand interaction.
We prioritize flexibility. We don’t offer standard one-size-fits all services, but unique solutions for the companies that reach out to use for help.
