Knowledge Base Software That Soars

In 1927 Charles Lindbergh became the first person to fly an airplane across the Atlantic. On his return he was given a ticker-tape parade on the Washington Mall. He had made the impossible become possible. How? Because he had a utter, ruthless dedication to his goal. A SIMPLE, BEAUTIFUL PRODUCT I think if Lindbergh ran a SaaS company today, and was looking for knowledge base ('KB') software, he'd choose HelpJuice. Why? Because they've applied the same level of intellectual and practical discipline (that Lindbergh applied to his dream of flying the Atlantic) to their dream of creating an epoch-defining solution to an un-cracked problem (clunky, over-complex KB software applications). First, my disclaimer: I'm a co-founder of a tech start up & a customer of HelpJuice, who have been incredibly helpful to me in getting my knowledge base off the ground (a la Lindbergh). Now my qualifications. Before moving into tech I practised law for several years as a litigation / dispute resolution attorney. I learned that creating top class templates of information/resources, more than paid for itself through the delight clients experienced at receiving detailed, actionable legal advice. HelpJuice is the go-to tool in my view to help any SaaS business - your business - achieve this end. EASE OF USE HelpJuice works like Google/Bing for your KB with a search bar on the home page your home page. If their question isn't answered in the KB, a query lead capture form appears, so you can answer the query & create a template. CUSTOMER SERVICE & CUSTOMISATION The Helpjuice customer success team goes out of their way to provide professional services (for free) worth several hundreds of $ (if $1,000s) ensuring you're delighted. SIMPLICITY IN DESIGN & EXECUTION If you're looking for an advanced ticketing based customer support system, don't choose HelpJuice. No ticketing system? How can they help me then? Well, HelpJuice decided that the laser-like niche skills required to design and maintain and develop a KB software solution are considerably different from a customer support ticketing software solution. They're right, too. FUNCTIONALITY You get: - Thousands of searches on your KB a month - dozens of user admin accounts; different role/access segmentation - customisation of the KB; support pretty much any which way you want it etc. At the higher end: - 99% SLA - localisation - KB segmentation - making your KB an internal company site

Highly customizable Knowledge Base solution

Pretty good overall. Had a few support kerfuffles but in the end, they came through and were great to work with. By far the best bang for your buck.

Pros

- Can customize it to basically anything you want it to be
- Great personalized support
- Fast customization requests
- Really good editor
- Plenty of themes to choose from
- Analytics are great

Cons

- Can take too much customization to get it to 'feel' right for what you're doing
- If you have a private site, sharing articles individually publicly with a client is cumbersome
- Full export of site is not great as it exports in excel sheets
- No dynamic creation of keywords or related articles
- Can't 'continue numbering' in editor
- Can't 'copy formatting' in editor
- Search results do not contain category 'folders'

Really Good!

A nice userfriendly knowledgebase that my entire team can contribute to.

Pros

The software is really easy to use and navigate. I love how sleek the reports are as well as the weekly report of our sites health. Overall it's a huge improvement from our last knowledgebase hosted in salesforce

Cons

Support was a little slow to respond, it took roughly 4 days to get an initial response for an easy how-to. Sometimes the article formats look different from when you're editing it and from when you publish it. I would recommend to customers to keep the format as simple as possible. The other cons are just minor software enhancements like dynamic reporting but nothing has been a blocker or critical issue so far!

Helpjuice is a perfect Help Center service

We moved to Helpjuice for the following reasons: lots of options, saves us money. What we got however has eclipsed this. We have found Helpjuice to have more features than we expected, important reporting, wonderful customizability, and great customer support. They have been very responsive and willing to work with us through some fairly specific SEO requirements as well. All this for a cost that won't break the bank.

Pros

Noted in the review

Cons

We have had some downtime, but this has been limited.

Quick to get set up, easy to use, and great support!

The help center that came with our customer support software wasn't meeting our needs and we wanted something more flexible that we could fully customize. Helpjuice provides the best of both worlds — an easy to use user interface for people to add/edit articles and the flexibility to amend the code and completely customize the site. Best of all, if there's a specific feature you really want if you ask them they'll get it done.

Pros

The support is fast and responsive. They are also great at taking feedback and incorporating it into their product. The user experience is clear and simple to use, but — if you want it — you can access the entire backend and customize your site to your specifications.

Cons

It's currently lacking integrations, e.g. with CRM tools such as Salesforce.

Helpjuice: Fresh squeezed knowledge base goodness!

We are new to Helpjuice, but so far the experience has been very pleasant - with quick responses (several other competitors never even bothered to return multiple requests for demo's and meetings, but Helpjuice did so within less than a day!)

Pros

Price-per-feature was a major consideration - Helpjuice offers a lot of options and customization that other companies break out in to more and more expensive tears or pricing, where you have to pay more to get one feature you may want and a bunch more you don't.

Cons

While there search is robust, and can search attached PDF files in articles, other competitors have a much more robust search engine, capable of searching just about any file type, including video files. That said, you also have to pay a lot more to get that advanced of a search engine, and the rest of what these competitors offered was not as appealing.

Very quick to setup, responsive team to assist in loading and customizing your KB.

Pros

Customer service agent was very helpful in getting things setup. He answered all of our questions and assisted us in loading our existing help documents. It has a good interface with Salesforce and creating new content is very intuitive and quick.

Cons

I would like to see an improved Salesforce integration to be more native and through the App Exchange. It would be great to also see this being Lightning-enabled.

Hi Marty, Thanks for your review -- we are happy to Frontsteps onboard, as a customer. We're indeed a small team of 12 people, and have been doing Enterprise Knowledge Base software for over 7 years. Nothing pains me more when customers look at our strength and take it as a weakness. We've personally made sure we implement as many requests as you have asked for, and have made sure your customer experience is as small & cozy as it can be -- something you cannot get at our competitors.

Awesome Help Desk!

We needed an automated helpdesk for ClickCease.com. We found dozens of services but we decided to go with HelpJuice due to the great automation features they provided. We are not sorry, we are super happy with the software and it has increased our retention! The guys at HJ (Emil and the crew) were speedy and efficient with the setup and have been there for us with any question we had. Don't think twice, this is the way to go!

Pros

The ability to instantly setup Q&A.

Cons

No livechat automation, but I understand that is in the works.

Great system for providing support to customers!

Pros

It's an awesome platform for distributing help and information to customers without requiring actual human assistance. Frees up human resources.

Cons

It's kind of a bear to set up, there is a lot of information that needs to be input for it to be effective.

Article management and knowledge base

Thanks for the awesome product guys! The first of my two main feature requests is the ability to make a draft version of an already published article. Example: I have a published article and I want to plan for an upcoming feature change. I'd like to edit all of the articles this feature is mentioned in before the day the feature launches so that I can just push the changes live on that day. The new article would be linked as a draft version of the published articles so that when it goes live, it just replaces the live article. The second of my two requests is that your help page be a little more fleshed out. For example, I recently found that you do have the ability to nest content or articles within other articles. Which I think is awesome. But I didn't realize you had this because I searched your knowledge base and was unable to find anything about it there. Thanks!

Pros

Clean design. Easy to navigate.

Cons

Hard to find something without messaging support.

Fantastic on-boarding experience up until the rebranding which took longer than expected

Recommended it already! This is a KB and Doc system for Product Managers... it is all about the data and helping me improve the product

Pros

Analytics, analytics, analytics - its why we move to the solution - great to get insight into popular articles. Abiliity to integrate into our existing Support process and have a dedicated document view.

Cons

Could do with a couple of improvements for publishing articles, lacks some of the capabilities used to when creating content
- the code formatting is not very good, have line wrap issues and no syntax highlighting
- difficult to create pdf reports that are legible as the formatting is very poor when trying to print the html page
- difficult to export analytics data to other systems
- need to it possible to just link to other articles (very easy to embed articles) - why not offer the option to display link or content when I use the

Helpjuice has fit our internal knowledge base needs

Our company was in the market for an internal knowledge base solution that would provide the features and design that an ordinary shared drive or wiki site couldn't provide. This software has increased our employee productivity by giving them direct access to the resources they need...fast! The best part is we are able to monitor what resource pages are receiving the most traffic, which ones could use a boost and even solicit ideas for content that doesn't exist yet. The Helpjuice team has been great about helping us design our site to fit our needs. As with everything there have been a few minor bumps, but they have addressed them and continue to roll out new features and functionality that make this software extremely valuable to our company. My advice to anyone looking at Helpjuice as a potential solution - take the opportunity to allow them to walk you through their software and check out a few of their client sites. Helpjuice isn't a cookie cutter solution, they will tailor it to the look and feel you need. That being said, it's most helpful if you go in with a clear vision of what you want to achieve and they will help you get there.

Manager of Support Services

I joined Helpjuice a few months ago and have been thrilled with the experience so far! The product is easy to use and the amount of freedom you get with the design is unprecedented. You're not locked into a cookie-cuter layout, so the sky's the limit! You can tell that they're pushing their product forward and trying to make something that is unique from other knowledge base platforms out there. Their recent updates to their Analytics shows that they've been working hard on providing value to their customers. We're just getting ready to add multi-language support and I wish there was an easier way to manage translated files (like auto-translations) but understand that can be considered an entirely different market itself. My favorite- incredible customer service!! Their team goes above and beyond to help make sure you have everything you need, just they way you want it. If I ever have a question or concern, they're quick to respond and always willing to help. I'd definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to build a one-of-a-kind knowledge base.

Ideal tool to automate support

When our small team was looking for a knowledge base tool, we kept seeing Helpjuice appear. And so, we gave it a go.... Instantly, upon signing up, we realized Helpjuice provides a much different experience than the other solutions out there. Helpjuice is really focused on being the best knowledge base platform, and you can tell from product to support. Their product is a bliss and very powerful, while their customer support is one of THE best support experiences I've had, in a while!

Pros

Extremely easy to use, powerful analytics, easy integration in website.

Cons

The best Knowledge Base around

Although we've only just started, building our new Knowledge Base in Helpjuice has already been an absolute dream. The backend is easy to navigate and the editor is simple and straightforward, yet far more robust than our previous KB solution... embedding videos and gifs has added a whole new element to our content! There aren't enough characters allowed in this review to fully encapsulate all of the great features available, so check them out for yourself! Beyond the tool itself, which we're absolutely loving, the communication and support from the Helpjuice team is top-notch. They have been more than willing to ensure that our KB is customized to perfection. I would highly recommend that any company building a new Knowledge Base from scratch or refreshing their existing Knowledge Base use Helpjuice to do so.

The transition from wordpress to this KB platform has been wonderful

Pros

It's very user friendly - All of our agents can easily access anything they need. It can be updated and published for review instantly.

Cons

Don't have any at the moment because we are relatively new to the product. If I had to say anything, it's the importing feature - didn't appear to be compatible with many external outlets. That said, I'll turn this into a pro - the customer support team was able to fulfill my needs in less than 12 hours.

Very Happy

So far I have to say that we have been really happy with the funcionality of Helpjuice. The support team is great and very helpful and we haven't really had any problems so far that couldn't be resolved. The only minor thing is that the analytics were a little bit difficult to grasp in the beginnning and could still be improved.

Pros

It's adaptabiity and that it offers great designs and the analytics.

Cons

The analytics could be a little bit more comprehensive and could give more detail about unsuccessful searches etc.

It has been a very easy transition. From migrating our content to their extremely quick and reliable support, we've had an excellent experience so far.

Pros

It is extremely customizable. We have strict brand rules we have to follow and Helpjuice allowed us to make all the customizations we needed.

Cons

The ability to edit articles from their published URL. I believe this is actively being worked on.

Easy to use, great service, worked for exactly what we needed it for.

Pros

Service has been responsive and excellent. Helped us make updates, and the software is also very easy to use with many features. Best available Knowledge Base for the money

Cons

None that I can think of, I was looking for a knowledge base only, many other companies have many extras that I don't need.
