What is a knowledge base?

A knowledge base is an online repository of product and support information readily accessible to customers. A typical knowledge base consists of self-serve content in the form of FAQs, knowledge articles, and how-to manuals — delivered in text, audio, video, and other rich media formats. The primary goal of a knowledge base is to provide consumers with quick contextual information on websites, apps, and other customer-facing channels for boosting customer satisfaction.

What are the benefits of a knowledge base?

A well-structured, comprehensive knowledge base can help companies to:

  • Reduce contact/call volume: providing customers with a self-serve option to seek information, a knowledge base helps reduce call volume and contact center overhead in a big way.

  • Improve agent productivity: smart-tagging knowledge base articles with the right keywords ensures agents have contextual information at their fingertips — which helps reduce response time and speeds up resolution.

  • Boost customer satisfaction: enabling customers to find their own answers using a knowledge base leads to satisfied, happy customers. You can also integrate a conversational bot into the knowledge base and deliver a superior self-help experience.
