An internal knowledge base is a collection of information about a particular subject that is only accessible by employees. It can improve efficiency, performance, and employee knowledge by providing company information, organizational structure, news, promotions, and how-to guides. To keep the knowledge base organized, different categories can be created for different topics, and a Forum and Suggestions/Feedback option can be added for each category. Creating an internal knowledge base is usually part of more complex software, such as help desk software. The benefits of an internal knowledge base include improved customer experience, agent efficiency, sales, brand image, level of customer service/support, productivity, and employee knowledge. An example use case is facilitating the onboarding process for new employees. A proper management system can ensure employees are up to speed with company information, training, and organizational structure.
