"We provide customers with Enterprise power at a mid-market price. It was only natural that we would partner with KnowledgeBroker to extend that enterprise power to include Knowledge Management."


"Companies are under constant pressure to cut costs and improve service," said Brad Stanley, Managing Director of KnowledgeBroker. "The combined power of Cherwell's On-Premise and SaaS models and KnowledgeBroker's TotalBase is an excellent combination in achieving this goal."
