Use your know-how
A smart knowledge base for better self-service and empowered agents
Knowledge is power. Using it is powerful.
Support teams have a lot of knowledge about customer issues—and the best way to solve them. Zendesk Guide is a smart knowledge base that helps tap into that institutional knowledge and puts it to work. With Guide, you can quickly build a customizable help center, online community, and customer portal so customers get better self-service and agents see improved efficiency and faster resolution. And since it’s the only knowledge base native to Zendesk, it integrates seamlessly with Zendesk Support.
Grow what you know
Capture your agents’ collective knowledge and build on it over time to respond to support requests more effectively.
Give them the good stuff
Give customers the most relevant answers and information automatically—and in context—for a faster self-service experience.
Be better with bots
AI powered Answer Bot can resolve high-frequency, low-touch tickets by sending customers relevant articles while they wait for an agent.

"With so many people using our site every day, it's vital that our customer care advisors have the right tools to deal with enquiries quickly and effectively."
– Huu Anh Chu, Head of Customer Experience, JustGiving
You have what it takes
With Guide, setting up a well-stocked knowledge base is easy. The Knowledge Capture app allows agents to turn every customer interaction into new content, flag old content for improvements, and even search for articles to share in tickets. Content managers can also rely on their entire team to contribute to content, including everything from approval and publishing workflows to vetting new articles and improving upon old ones — ensuring the best content is presented to both customers and agents.
"Investing in our knowledge base meant we saw a massive decline in the number of support requests coming in. Partners were getting what I consider to be the very best service—which is that they never had to log a ticket in the first place."

Know thy self-service
Guide lets you create a single version of your content and then distribute it everywhere at once. You don’t have to worry about device incompatibility or what version of content is out in the wild. Articles are automatically optimized so they’re easy to find on search engines or on your own help center. And with Zendesk Embeddables, the most relevant articles are matched and recommended to customers based on their browsing activity.
“The Mobile SDK has allowed us to provide quick answers through our help center. Also, we have more context about the users that request 1:1 support. It saves us a lot of time.”

Thanks a bot

Using artificial intelligence, Answer Bot automatically resolves high-frequency and low-touch tickets by suggesting relevant articles to customers while they wait for an agent. And Answer Bot keeps getting smarter. It learns from each customer interaction and trains itself to deliver more relevant and customized content with each solved ticket.
