As you strive to offer the best customer experience possible, branded communities have become the preferred method for collaboration. Of all self-service channels, customers make the most frequent use of knowledge bases.
But your community is only as good as the support it provides, so if engagement is low or your knowledge bank is lacking, you’re failing your customer.

Your Knowledge Base is the Key to Service Success
A knowledge base consists of the available data or information to answer a question. Whether your help articles are housed in a self-service community or in a knowledge center for support agents, well-developed knowledge bases are the backbone of case deflection.
Combining Salesforce functionality like knowledge and search allows corresponding articles and topics to pop up as users type a problem or ask a question. This natively deflects cases because answers to questions or problems can appear in real time.
