Confluence's wiki software is simply another web portal that requires opening a new tab, logging in, and searching. Guru’s browser extension and product integrations mean that knowledge lives where you work, saving you valuable time in searching for answers — especially in phone calls or live chats, where quick responses are required.
It’s not enough just to find knowledge, you have to ensure that what you find is correct and up-to-date. Guru’s verification engine ensures that knowledge is regularly checked and verified, updated, or archived. Wiki systems have no checks and balances, leading to stale knowledge, distrust, and low org-wide usage.
Confluence’s keyword search means you have to spend time digging through pages of incorrect results to find what you need. Save even more time by letting Guru do the hard work for you. It suggests appropriate knowledge based on your workflow or what’s on your page, so you can stop digging and stay focused.
"If you use Confluence for your internal wiki you’re doing it wrong. Guru provides trusted content that’s accessible in an instant. Our team adoption was incredibly quick. I’ve looked at a million CMS solutions and this is my favorite."
Team communication platforms are key, especially for distributed or remote teams. While Confluence’s integration allows you to preview knowledge, we built Guru’s Slack integration to help you not just access your knowledge, but to create, share, and update it without ever having to leave the chat window.
Guru’s robust and flexible setup and features give you control over your company’s knowledge, allowing you to easily reassign ownership as necessary, add and manage tags to make knowledge more discoverable, and delete or archive knowledge in bulk. Traditional knowledge management systems have rigid structures and low ownership, making scaling knowledge difficult and less collaborative.
Make sure that what you’re putting in your knowledge base is useful. Guru’s analytics help you understand who’s reading what so you can make sure everyone who needs to is staying in the loop. Instead of just storing knowledge, Guru takes you one step further by making sure it’s actually being used by your team.
Guru integrates with many of the team collaboration tools you already have in your tech stack. That means you can create, access, and update knowledge without leaving Jira, Trello, Slack, Microsoft Outlook, Google Drive, Salesforce, Intercom, and more.
You shouldn’t have to leave what you’re doing to add an important piece of knowledge to your knowledge base. Guru’s browser extension allows you to easily capture information anywhere you’re learning and turn it into a bite-size Card, allowing you to instantly and painlessly update your single source of truth.
With Guru’s expert verification, everyone in your organization has access to the person who knows best. You'll never worry that your knowledge is out-of-date or inaccurate because Guru regularly prompts experts to check and verify, update, or archive the knowledge they own.
Don’t let a blank knowledge base hold you back. Use Guru’s content sync to import knowledge you may have already captured in file sharing, task management, and project management software like Confluence, Jira, Dropbox, and Google Docs to get started without interrupting business.
