Natural Language Search enables your agents’ search to be understood using their own wording without having to insert keywords. By utilising the search functionality in Universal’s helpdesk knowledge management agents are taken directly to the location of a document that contains the answer. This removes the need for agents to trawl through lengthy documents and saves vast amounts of time.


Within Universal’s IT help desk knowledge management software a comprehensive content management function allows knowledge authors to effectively manage content by setting creation and expiration dates as well as having the ability to automatically perform bulk uploads of documentation from multiple repositories.


Universal’s IT knowledge management tool allows agents to easily create information internally with our document editor or leave information from multiple repositories in-situ to be leveraged into the knowledgebase without compromising search quality. Leverage internal and external knowledge sources including intranets, file shares or even SharePoint repositories.


With Universal’s help desk knowledge management reports administrators can access key metrics such as user/document usage statistics and gain further understanding of your knowledgebase. Knowledge gap reports provide a quick, high level overview of areas of content that may be ‘under performing’, allowing you to prioritise knowledge creation/updates and boost service desk innovation.


Our comprehensive set of APIs allow our service desk knowledge management solutions to be integrated with service desk tools or ITSM applications for a seamless agent experience. Having an IT knowledge management system which has the ability to automatically link solutions to inbound tickets will reduce resolution speeds which will ultimately enhance customer and agent satisfaction.


The notifications portal within Universal’s IT knowledge management software allows administrators to push information such as problem descriptions, FAQs, required reading and hot topics to agents. By using this feature, managers can ensure that agents are kept up to date with the latest developments making the knowledgebase a core tool in incident and problem resolution.

Review & Approval

Review and approve content prior to publication to ensure that the most accurate knowledge is circulated to your agents. Assigning experts or dedicated knowledge authors for content reviewing prior to publication of new or updated documents gives your agents the confidence to perform daily tasks more competently than ever before.


Gain access to full audit trails on information in your help desk’s knowledge management system such as agent’s ‘received and read’ notification status’ along with document version history. This advanced level of traceability in your IT knowledge management tool allows administrators to easily visualise and prioritise content editions.


Manage information easily and effectively to further reduce the speed at which agents are able to acquire the in formation that they need. Through the use of our taxonomies function agents have the ability to quickly filter through documents within Universal’s IT knowledge management tool adding further to your agents’ ability to provide premium customer service.


Universal’s IT Knowledge Management software is a self-learning system that improves with usage – the more it is used the better it becomes. Universal Knowledge has the ability to learn from a user’s query and the successfulness of the resolution that was provided, optimising its ability to enhance the accuracy of future searches.

Self-Service Portal

Universal’s IT Knowledge management software provides multiple ways of searching for and pinpointing the required information. Universal’s self service portal allows agents and end-users alike to self serve their problem using an easy to navigate portal that will both reduce inbound ticket volumes and improve customer satisfaction.

Discussion Forums
