Stay in your workflow when it matters most

Confluence's traditional 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.

Trust the knowledge you find

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. Traditional wiki systems have no checks and balances, leading to stale knowledge, distrust, and low org-wide usage.

Let the knowledge you need find you

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. 

See why Square switched to Guru:

"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."

A powerful Slack integration

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.

Manage your knowledge base at scale

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.

Understand how your knowledge is performing

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.

Integrate with the tools you already have

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.

Capture knowledge from anywhere on the web

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.


Give everyone access to the experts

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.

Seamlessly import your existing knowledge

Don’t let a blank knowledge base hold you back. Use Guru 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.


Serve the right knowledge every time

With Guru’s suite of AI-powered features like duplicate detection, in-workflow announcements and triggers, and intelligent tags, you can ensure that not only are there no conflicting pieces of similar knowledge, but that the right information is being shown to the right people, right when they need it.

Quickly organize—or reorganize—your knowledge

Forget the rigid structure of traditional knowledge management software or traditional wiki tools. Guru’s user-friendly setup uses modular Collections, Boards, Groups, and Cards so you can understand where knowledge is at a glance, or simply drag and drop to move it in a moment. You can even restrict access at any level to specific teams or team members.
