Researchbods vision is to blend technology and sharp thinking to bring customers and brands closer – enabling fast, smart and informed decisions. Researchbods offer a platform that delivers real-time consumer insights with speed and agility, using modules such as online communities, surveys and dashboards.

Document360 was chosen as a solution for building their internal knowledge base. Researchbods utilizes Document360’s knowledge base assistant to offer in-app product help to their clients. The knowledge base assistant has been configured to provide contextual help of their product depending on where their clients are inside their product.
Researchbods is currently utilizing readers groups to tailor the right content to the right set of their internal staff. They utilize Home page builder to brand their home page and knowledge base to suit their brand, thus providing the best customer experience. The internal (private) knowledge base site is accessed by their internal staff via the web using secured logins.
Researchbods utilizes agile documentation methodology to build high-quality documentation that meets their client’s needs. Their documentation tasks are followed-up in an agile task board (that captures all requirements) to ensure their documentation articles are ready for product release.
When a customer support ticket comes through for which there is no relevant knowledge base article, then it gets logged into documentation backlogs. A new article is either created or old articles are updated as per the customer feedback.
There is currently only two staff on the service desk doing multiple roles while managing their service desk. Their internal knowledge base has helped them to cross-train staff from other departments to provide customer support if required. This helped those two staff focus more on product management and high-priority tasks. The improvements have accelerated their business transformation journey in serving customers better with less human capital.
