Knowledge Base

By countryd32 ·
Help me choose a knowledge base software! I've been looking for a long time, I can't decide, there are two main options: kbpublisher and helpjuice.
Can someone tell me?

Re: Knowledge base

I know people who built it in Sharepoint, because their company already had it.

That being said, the first thing you should do is to list your requirements.

Once you know what you want, I see both programs have a free trial.
So turn the requirements into a representative test set of data you want to put into the KB, find 2 or 3 people in the company to enter them and 3 to 5 equally representative people to search in the KB built. When prepared like that, run the free trials to see what's better for you.

Nobody else can choose for you. And without any mention of requirements nobody can even tell you what their preference would be and why.

And remember, it's easy to setup a website, but it's difficult to keep it current. The same goes for a knowledge base. So the ease of maintenance (find outdated knowledge and update or delete it) is an important criterion.
