“The Team Publishing workflow allowed us to streamline our knowledge creation process by making it much easier for agents to create articles and have them reviewed. This means that articles which once took a week to publish are now live in 1-2 days. One of the features our team loves is the ability to assign an article to someone for review, which sends an automatic email notification so they know there’s something waiting for them without having to monitor the queue.”

— Mary Paez, Knowledge Manager at Veeva

Content Cues empowers content managers by identifying gaps in your knowledge base. Powered by machine learning, Content Cues automatically reviews incoming support tickets and existing help center articles to provide suggestions on the types of articles that are missing or should be improved, so it’s easy to optimize your content.
