Business Requirement

Glasswall CDR was looking for an online knowledge base to host their customer-facing product documentation, including user guides, troubleshooting guides, FAQs, and some of their products’ technical documentation.

Glasswall were initially hosting their documentation on Madcap Flare, but they faced certain challenges, such as

  • The tool’s user interface felt outdated.
  • Flare lacked collaborative tools such as discussions and private notes.
  • Flare is a desktop application that produces PDFs, HTML files and chm files which are optimized for offline viewing.
  • Publishing articles was an arduous process because it would provide HTML files which had to be hosted in a webserver via manual process.

Glasswall CDR was looking for a cloud-based knowledge management platform that was slightly customizable and more modern in appearance and feel.


Glasswall evaluated multiple modern knowledge base vendors and chose to host their documentation on Document360. The following features made Document360 match their requirements perfectly.

  • The platform is based in the cloud such that vendor takes care of hosting the knowledge base site.
  • Once the knowledge base article content is changed, it reflects instantly on the knowledge base site.
  • Homepage builder allowed customization of their homepage, aligning it with their brand guidelines.
  • Snippets allow certain content to be inserted into articles while editing thus saving authors’ time on retyping the content again or copying and pasting it from another article.
  • Glossary allows readers to hover over frequently used terms and view the definition on the knowledge base site, enhancing their user experience.
  • The rich metrics give them valuable insights into the geographical locations from where user traffic comes in.
  • Allows them to receive feedback in the form of thumbs up and thumbs down, which helps authors continually improve on their content.
  • Being able to index an article in terms of SEO, makes it also function as a marketing channel or a lead generation magnet.
