SaskTel Expands KNOVA Implementation to Power Self-Service for 540,000 Internet and Wireless Customers

With Agent Effectiveness at All Time High, SaskTel Selects KNOVA to Optimize Self-Service Experience

CUPERTINO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 07/18/06 -- KNOVA Software, Inc.(TM) (OTCBB: KNVS), a leading provider of Service Resolution Management applications, today announced that SaskTel has licensed KNOVA Self-Service from the award-winning KNOVA application suite. SaskTel, one of Canada's leading communications providers, will implement KNOVA to power self-service online for its 540,000 Internet and wireless customers.

"We are very satisfied with KNOVA Contact Center thus far and the impact it has had on productivity in our customer service centers," said Rick Gorrill, manager of Network Operations-Internet Support at SaskTel. "With the implementation of KNOVA's adaptive self-service application, we plan to optimize our Web support channel by guiding our customers through the resolution process and enhancing the overall customer experience."

By leveraging KNOVA's knowledge platform already in place, SaskTel expects to roll out KNOVA Self-Service and reap significant benefits at a low cost of ownership. KNOVA will guide SaskTel's self-service customers to resolution through a diagnostic, natural language search engine, an intuitive user interface, and a unique process-assisted "wizard" experience. SaskTel's self-service site will support multiple products, reducing calls for SaskTel Mobility, IP Support Center, 611-landline support, and complex voice and data help desks.

As a full service communications provider, SaskTel's persistent focus on world-class customer service is always top of mind. "Customer satisfaction is very important to us and continues to be a focal point in how we do business. We feel the KNOVA Self-Service application will improve SaskTel's self-service experience and improve customer satisfaction," continued Gorrill.

"Telecommunications providers face unique challenges with increasing product complexity and growing competition," commented Bruce Armstrong, president and CEO of KNOVA Software. "We're delighted that KNOVA has provided excellent results for SaskTel's customer support operations and look forward to powering an intelligent and satisfying self-service experience."
