Cosmos Forms is a Calgary-based SaaS company that allows people to manage business processes from any mobile device, the web, or Microsoft Teams.

Cosmos Forms initially considered managing their documentation on WordPress but it required them to build the site. Cosmos Forms preferred using an all-in-one managed solution.
After researching a few options in the knowledge base space, Cosmos Forms chose to host their documentation on Document360. A few features listed below made Document360 the most suitable option.

Customers have stopped contacting us with how-to questions, but now only call us for actual problems
Greg says Cosmos Forms has begun seeing a reduction in customer support tickets after setting up their online knowledge base on Document360.
Document360 helped us establish a single source of truth for procedures both internally and for customers. This has eliminated differences in opinions regarding procedures
Cosmos Forms also reports that the online knowledge base has helped standardize all procedures being followed internally. It leaves no room for doubt anymore, leading to better efficiency.
Cosmos Forms, which is a start-up that is in the process of scaling their operations, found Document360 to be a perfect solution to help its customers self-serve. In turn, it also reduced the burden on their customer support team and synchronized their internal functioning.
