Knowledge base

Organize knowledge and lighten the load of your support team.
 

What is a knowledge base for MSPs?

A knowledge base (kbase) is an organized repository of relevant data, structured with IT best practices and knowledge gained from practical experiences. A full-fledged kbase will help improve agent productivity and customer satisfaction. For MSPs, knowledge base management includes classifying and personalizing topics for each account, setting up restrictions on topics for technicians and client users, and providing relevant suggestions for incidents in the self service portal.

Why is a knowledge base important?

Technicians commonly receive requests to log tickets from clients. Managing such requests across all accounts can cause MSPs to lose a lot of productive time. A kbase makes it easy for end users to solve issues without raising a ticket, thereby lifting some weight off of the help desk. It also allows users to avoid long wait times, resulting in improved customer satisfaction.
