Through the KCS v6 Aligned program, vendors demonstrate that their product or service supports an element of the KCS methodology or adoption process. To be KCS v6 Aligned the product or service must comply with the KCS v6 Aligned standards.
The KCS v6 Aligned designation is a sister to the comprehensive, more stringent KCS v6 Verified designation that is designed for larger product suites such as Customer Management, Knowledge Management, or Enterprise Content Management Systems.
