Almost every company can benefit from using a knowledge base. But the advent of AI technologies are taking the traditional processes of Knowledge Management to a new level of benefit for support teams and businesses

Organizations can use these knowledge bases internally, or to create external, customer-facing resources too.  These are often called self-serve or self-help solutions. Customer Service or Customer Experience (CX) teams need these, as do IT Service Management (ITSM) teams and outsourced vendors.

According to Salesforce, 89% of customers will return and stay loyal if they receive positive customer service whenever they need help. This includes the use of self-serve tools and content and AI-powered chatbots.

AI tools and software are proving an effective way of improving the creation and maintaining of content and context of knowledge bases. Hence the need for AI Knowledge Management.

In this article, we define AI Knowledge Management and list nine of the leading software solutions on the market.

What is AI Knowledge Management?

Knowledge Management AI is where AI tools are used in the collection, creation, curation, and discoverability of internal and customer-centric knowledge bases and resources.

Each of these are benefitted by AI in several ways:

  • Collection: AI tools can collect information automatically. Human agents can't possibly collect everything they are saying or writing when replying to customers. Also, until now automated systems that do collect this information only store the data. In most cases, that information isn't useful unless someone is tasked with crawling through it to create a knowledge article.

    Now, with AI, all of that can be done automatically and at scale.  This also increases the data quality.

  • Creation: Because data from customer interactions and support tickets are collected automatically, tools with generative AI capabilities can then actually create the knowledge content automatically as well. Further, they can leverage NLP, machine learning, and other AI-driven systems to create new knowledge organizations need to support customers more effectively.
  • Curation: All of that material will need curating to avoid duplication. It will also ensure the most relevant documents, articles, and other pieces of content will fit within the cognitive decision trees of the Knowledge Management system. AI makes that possible, simplifying and consolidating the data that's collected at scale.
  • Discoverability: This is equally important. Without advanced knowledge discovery and search tools, users won't be able to easily find what they're looking for when they need it quickly. The best AI Knowledge Management platforms have these AI-powered discoverability tools. These ensure users can find what they need, which provides a better user experience.

Instead of trying to build/develop your own in-house AI Knowledge Management system, it's often more cost-effective to use an off-the-shelf solution. And so, let's look at nine of the best AI Knowledge Management software (SaaS) solutions on the market based on use cases, functionality, and other key factors.
