EasyVista announced the forthcoming acquisition of Knowesia, a self-help modeling and guided support software company based in France with operations in the US and customers around the world.

The acquisition supports EasyVista’s innovation strategy to deliver next generation self-service in the enterprise by integrating intelligent self-help capabilities with EasyVista’s ITSM 2.0 platform.

The acquisition of Knowesia will enable EasyVista to offer a codeless way to model and deliver intelligent knowledge processes that can be integrated with virtual assistants or chatbots to enhance the self-help experience.

“Knowledge management is vital for any company wanting to take advantage of the artificial intelligence algorithms driving the next generation of self-service,” said Sylvain Gauthier, Co-Founder and CEO of EasyVista. “This acquisition enables us to more seamlessly integrate EasyVista's ITSM 2.0 platform with the innovative Knowesia Knowledge Management solution, creating an unparalleled self-help experience for our customers and their end users. Our goal is to help customers dramatically reduce Tier 1 requests by giving employees and IT staff an intuitive and intelligent self-service experience. IT has evolved past desktops, laptops and tablets and is being asked to support anything that connects to the network – making intelligent knowledge trees a critical capability for supporting the digital enterprise.”

Knowesia is best known for its innovative approach to modeling knowledge and procedures into decision trees. Upon completion of the modeling process, Knowesia instantly and automatically converts models into dynamic, interactive web applications. These applications can then be accessed on computers, phones and tablets, making them available to the workforce from anywhere.

“We have worked hard to make Knowesia a user-friendly solution for employees that enables autonomous and intelligent management of service and support issues,” said Thibault de Clisson, CEO of Knowesia. “We are very enthusiastic about joining EasyVista given the synergies of our technology offerings and our shared strategic focus on driving a better self-help experience for employees while reducing the costs of IT.”

Knowesia developed its technology with the support of France’s National Agency for the Valuation of Research (ANVAR).

The acquisition is expected to close in July 2017.
