If you run a service or sell products and need to provide information for the user to understand how to use it, a knowledge base is a great way to store information in an ordered fashion. A knowledge base will typically contain categories of information about the product or service in a searchable format. They can also have additional features such as the ability to ask a question, comment on topics, rate topics and are often used in conjunction with forums or a support ticket solution.
