Integrate Everything into One Ecosystem

Through our Integration Framework, RightAnswers connects all your applications, such as Salesforce, ServiceNow, SharePoint, etc., across the enterprise. It enables people to create, find and share knowledge in the same place they perform their daily work.

Our Enterprise Knowledge Hub – Centralizes knowledge creation and storage. Your customer service teams use the Agent Portal to find, fix and add knowledge. Other employees and your customers interact with knowledge through various channels such as Web Self-Service and Mobile Self-Service, where they find what they need and indicate what’s helpful.

RightAnswers Community – Let customers help other customers and employees help other employees. Merge communities with your knowledge base to show all knowledge in one place and for easy migration of socially crowdsourced knowledge into the knowledge base. Employee communities foster collaboration among teams, further connecting your enterprise.

Multiple Knowledge Formats

RightAnswers serves up knowledge in all its formats, such as Word docs, PDFs, Excel spreadsheets, videos, etc. By tracking and reporting on the most popular external knowledge, we provide a prioritized list of items that should be converted to native knowledge and stored in the knowledge base to improve overall customer service.

Seamless Integration Across All Platforms

  • RightAnswers integrates with any third-party system, arriving out-of-the-box with more than 30 connectors for network drives, emails, intranets, websites, databases and applications including SharePoint, Office 365, and many others.
  • RightAnswers seamlessly embeds into CRM and ITSM systems. That means your support agents and other employees search for knowledge in the same interface they use for their daily work.
  • We also provide custom connectors. Talk to us about your other enterprise applications and we’ll get it connected.
