About Acknow

AcKnow is a cloud-based knowledge management system that offers SMBs a single and centralized platform from which to create, monitor and improve knowledge based support workflows. Incorporating a built-in WYSIWYG editor, omnisearch technology, gamification mechanisms, messaging and collaboration tools as well as reporting and statistics capabilities, AcKnow aims to provide users with a comprehensive knowledge management solution for customer service, technical support and IT helpdesk departments.

Users can also access a terminology glossary and collect feedback in order to evaluate and maintain quality content.

AcKnow employs social mechanics to inform individuals, providing users with a news feed to track their favorite topics, articles and authors. With gamification capacity, AcKnow permits users to create badges with the intention of motivating and engaging employees in the knowledge management process.
