Knoweledge Management for Improved Collaboration

Astea Alliance Enterprise Knowledge Management software offers competitive service-centric businesses with a competitive edge. Team members can work more effectively with embedded and searchable resources they needed to complete tasks. Every employee has access to real-time mobile access to a host of assets.
