What is support documentation?

Support documentation provides official information explaining the use, functionality, creation, or architecture of a company’s product or service. It can include anything from the basic ‘how-to’ user guides to the advanced technical tutorials in your knowledge base. Knowledge base management software can help streamline the process of creating, organizing, and updating support documentation, making it easier for teams to access the information they need and for customers to find answers to their questions.

Support documentation is created for customers, support agents, and anyone else on your team who needs to know the ins and outs of how your product or service works. In particular, online help documentation and support is a must-have for SaaS and tech companies that are selling complex software solutions.

Key benefits of having well-written customer support documentation

Thorough support documentation delivers business benefits at multiple levels. On top of that, it’s essential for both your customers and your support agents.

Support your agents and teams

Knowledge base documentation is essential for your support team. With everything neatly documented, your agents will always have the right information at hand to provide quick and consistent answers for your customers.

Improve customer satisfaction

Consumers increasingly prefer self-service over human interaction. A comprehensive knowledge base and support documentation empowers your customers to fix problems before they even have to ask for help.

Become an authority in your niche

By offering your customers a reliable, accurate, relevant, and comprehensive source of information about your products or services, you can build better brand authority and earn more customers’ trust.

Empower your customers and support team with the right knowledge

With LiveAgent’s knowledge base and online help documentation software, you can consolidate all your support documentation in a centralized knowledge base and make it easily accessible to everyone who needs it.
