Knowledge article gap detection and generation in Discover

A knowledge base is a collection of information that users can access for various purposes. It can be used externally by customers or prospects who want to learn more about a product or service or internally by employees who need to find answers to common questions or problems.

Discover provides a very easy way to create a knowledge base. It leverages your customer support interactions, such as emails, chats, calls, surveys, etc., to create relevant and useful content for the knowledge base. It can identify topics with knowledge gaps and generate draft articles you can publish to your knowledge base.

  • Articles generated by Discover align with the actual needs and expectations of the customers and reflect their language and tone.
  • Articles can be updated on a regular basis, based on your interactions between valued customers and knowledgeable support agents.
  • Saving costs and resources by reducing the workload of support agents. Reduce time for content writers to write and publish relevant support articles.
  • A good and extensive knowledge base improves customer satisfaction and loyalty by better enabling self-service options across channels and providing a better customer experience.
  • Sales and conversions can be increased by educating potential customers about the product or service's features and benefits and addressing their objections or concerns.
  • It also enhances employee productivity and efficiency by reducing the time spent on searching for information or repeating the same tasks.

A good knowledge base is an important asset for a company that can improve both external and internal outcomes. By leveraging articles generated using customer support data, create a knowledge base that is relevant, useful, and engaging.
