Justify Knowledge Base Investments

SmartTEST helps demonstrate your work. Show that the time you spend creating, managing and improving a knowledge base portal is paying off.

  • Test the effectiveness of your work with sophisticated content experiments.
  • Justify knowledge management initiatives and investments in your knowledge base.
  • Convince your upper management that knowledge management will benefit your organization.

Show Off Your Work with Powerful Content Experiments

SmartTEST is designed to help knowledge base administrators prove out their work and justify the investment in the company’s knowledge base. Proving that a new or revised knowledge base page will perform better can be problematic – without real data to substantiate their work, administrators’ expertise can become highly subjective. SmartTEST demonstrates improvements with quantitative test data.

Easy to Set-up, Customizable and Fully-Automated

SmartTEST experiments are easy to set-up, customize and automate. Once the experiment is set up, SmartTEST can be automated and will run in the background without any need for supervision or disruption to the user experience.

Collect Hard Data to Justify Knowledge Base Performance

SmartTEST experiments provide an in-depth analysis of on-page user behavior. This hard data allows administrators to understand why users prefer one version of a knowledge base page over the other. With quantitative results to support their work, administrators can substantiate ongoing projects and justify future investments in their knowledge base. Experiments allow administrators to compare and analyze:

  • Call-to-action/user actions
  • Subject lines, key phrases and tagging
  • Article layout, length and style
  • Average time on page
  • Page scrolling
  • Page entrance/exit activity
  • Survey statistics & comments
