Looking for a Confluence alternative?

Confluence and Guru are both great internal wiki solutions. But as a Confluence alternative, Guru stands out as much more than a traditional knowledge wiki.

 

Features & Benefits

Guru lives everywhere your team works, empowering your customer-facing teams with up-to-date knowledge while also providing admins with powerful insights into what information is most important to your team and crucially, where your gaps are too.

Empower your team with the knowledge they need to do their jobs, everywhere they work

Infinitely accessible

Never worry about switching tabs to access Confluence again. Our browser extension, Slack bot, and web app allow your team to stay in their workflow and reduce the time spent searching for the knowledge they need to do their jobs.

Empower your team with trusted content

Even when your team finds information in Confluence, how do they know it’s still accurate? Your products, competitors, and processes are changing all the time, so we built a verification workflow that shows when knowledge was last updated and who on your team updated it so they always trust the accuracy of knowledge in Guru.

Actionable Data for Meaningful Insight

Guru’s analytics allows you to get insight into how your knowledge base is performing. See what knowledge is being used the most and by whom, as well as identify trends in high volume searches. Fill gaps in your knowledge strategy by seeing what searches aren’t producing results.

A knowledge base built with the future in mind

The way we work is changing and more than ever, we need knowledge to find us, at the right time and right place.

"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"

"Coming from no understanding of how our content was being interacted with or even used in Confluence, we didn’t really know what to focus on to improve our knowledge base. With Guru, having the dashboard of usage and activity gives us tangible metrics and a baseline to look at to try to improve upon."

"We used the opinions of our team to judge if Guru was a success. Everyone liked Guru. No one liked wikis."
