Delight customers and empower agents with answer automation

Businesses continually create new knowledge as products and services expand. Entering new markets and expanding your customer base also builds knowledge. But sharing the right knowledge with the right stakeholder — at the right moment — is challenging.

With Genesys, you have access to user-friendly knowledge management tools. These make it easy to deliver better agent and customer experiences. Eliminate silos across your organisation with collaboration tools that easily compile and access your content library, customer data and other helpful resources. Give your customers and agents the right information, in the right moment — improving every customer interaction.

Empower every interaction with the right information

Give your customers and agents the knowledge they crave with a centrally maintained knowledge base software used across touchpoints. Give every area of your organisation, including customer support and sales teams, access to the information they need. Include all users and information consumers in your feedback loop to train and improve self-service content across engagements.

Put knowledge at the heart of customer experience

Enable knowledge for customers and agents by building a single knowledge repository. This should support digital and voice-based interactions through self-service, bots or agent-led conversations. Provide a more consistent customer experience (CX) across touchpoints.

Create, enrich and organise knowledge easily

Give your knowledge workers easy-to-use tools to create and enrich knowledge. Create knowledge repositories or import your existing content sources.

Automate information for customers and employees

Enable information to flow automatically from the repository to any point of impact in real time.

Add channel dimensions to your repositories to ensure your knowledge base can support customer self-service as well as agent-led interactions with equal precision.

Easily create a smart portal for your knowledge repository. Activate specific knowledge categories or the entire knowledge base to use as a support centre for customers or employees. Add to your web page with a simple snippet of code that lets you incorporate smart search capabilities. This includes a type-ahead dropdown that makes it quick and easy to find the right information.

Frequently asked knowledge management tools questions

What are tools for knowledge management?

Knowledge management tools help organisations capture, organise and apply knowledge from multiple systems. These include document management systems, databases, intranets, search engines, collaboration platforms, AI-powered knowledge bases and learning management systems.

What are the three technologies used for knowledge management?

There are three key technologies used for knowledge management:

  1. Artificial Intelligence (AI) to automate knowledge capture and categorisation, and to make recommendations based on data patterns.
  2. Collaboration tools to facilitate the sharing and co-creation of knowledge among team members.
  3. Knowledge bases to store and organise knowledge in a searchable format for easy access.

Who needs to use knowledge management?

Knowledge management tools help companies of all sizes that share processes, practices, information and policies. This can be between departments or groups and functional roles.

What are the components of knowledge management?

Created, stored and shared knowledge as part of a comprehensive knowledge management program. A robust knowledge management solution lets creators contribute knowledge in multiple formats including text and images. There must be enough storage available to house in one place all the knowledge a company needs. It must also allow many ways of knowledge consumption, including different permission types and different consumption channels.

How do I get started with knowledge management?

Best practice calls for an analysis of the current state of knowledge at your company. Ask yourself these questions:

  • How is knowledge managed today?
  • Who is creating knowledge?
  • How many tools are we storing knowledge in now?
  • What tools are we currently using? What are our requirements of a tool moving forward?
  • Who will consume knowledge? Do they need knowledge in real-time?
  • How can you edit knowledge?
  • What permissions do we need for our knowledge authors and users?

Next, determine the ideal state of knowledge at your company. In almost all cases, the ideal state of knowledge sharing is a centralised system. Well controlled knowledge by administrators ensures completeness and accuracy.

What type of knowledge does knowledge management support?

If you’re focused on sharing information, knowledge management can support a variety of media types. Text, rich text, images, and video are all key features of an internal knowledge base capability set.

What are the most important aspects of high quality knowledge management?

Centralised knowledge enables more effective use of it. All consumers of knowledge should look to a single knowledge base, regardless of how they consume knowledge. Having just one knowledge base that shares knowledge with all channels creates consistent and standard insights. All departments and lines of business benefit.

What are the key business benefits of using centralised knowledge management systems?

A centralised repository of knowledge gives you a number of advantages. It will:

  • Reduce time spent looking for information, help with version control issues.
  • Make knowledge more easily accessible for users.
  • Improve customer service KPIs by giving agents access to the knowledge they need to serve customers, faster.
