Knowledge base software is a niche software segment which has been in demand in the recent years. The knowledge-base software market is poised to grow by approximately $3 billion by 2027. This is one of the reasons I created an exclusive news blog to feature knowledge base software and document management solutions offered by both enterprise IT organizations and SaaS startups.
What is Knowledge Base Software?
A knowledge base is an online repository of important information, policies, SOP and other data. It is well organized and can be self-served online by the end-users. The users could either be internal employees or customers who seek clarification or doubts about the products or services.

Why is a knowledge base software important for your business?
Knowledge bases are an essential component of a company’s documentation, and technical writers frequently utilize knowledge base software products to generate and organize documents, company policies, standard operating procedures, and so on. They provide information about how to use the product, what is possible and what is not, and how certain processes work.
With the help knowledge bases, engineers don’t have to dig through documentation or call customer service just to find out if their specific question has already been answered. A knowledge base is a document management system that stores all the knowledge about a product or process in one easy to access place. It can be used as a technical writing tool for both internal and external purposes.
