Confluence

Atlassian Confluence is extremely well suited for capturing knowledge and sharing it with your organization. Whether that takes the form of blog posts, technical documentation, or project status reports, Confluence can handle it all. Anytime that written documentation with detail would be valuable to your organization, Atlassian Confluence is THE tool to use.The only time I'd say that it is less suited for use is as a substitute for a face-to-face conversation. Sometimes people will use Atlassian Confluence as a communications vehicle when an in-person dialog would be much more expedient. Of course, you could always capture the output of that conversation as a Confluence page!

ProProfs Knowledge Base

ProProfs Knowledge Base is ideal for businesses that want to improve their customer support process, make agents more knowledgeable and productive, induct new employees, or manage their internal business knowledge.We used it mainly for our customer support function, and we are satisfied with the performance. The best part is it scales as a team or business grows. When we started using this tool, we had a support team of 10 members, and now it has expanded to 25. But the knowledge base is still working as efficiently as before. It has the capability to accommodate a large amount of data with ease.

Pros

Confluence

  • Confluence provides the ability to any employee to create content as they see fit, democratizing the content creation process
  • The parent and child relationships between pages makes organizing your content much easier.
  • If you're also using Jira as your task management software, the native integration allows you to work in both systems and share content and data between the two, seamlessly.

ProProfs Knowledge Base

  • It helps in creating an internal knowledge base that employees from different teams can access to find and share information.
  • Creating a customer support knowledge base is quite simple with this software. The customization and branding options it has have helped in giving the knowledge base a professional and appealing look.
  • Its conditional content feature allows setting specific conditions that control content visibility. This helps in restricting or allowing access to a page.

Cons

Confluence

  • Search. The search functionality of Confluence is not that great. When typing a search there are often dozens or hundreds of irrelevant pages and you can't see enough in the search results to know which page you are looking for so it can sometimes be hard to find information you are looking for.
  • Over-notification. If you subscribe to an active group, you will get a notification every time something changes. This means that if someone is actively updating during a meeting (taking minutes), you could receive several notification for the same set of changes.

  • The product is good as it is. We don’t feel that any significant changes are needed. But, yes, we would definitely love to see a more advanced version of the product soon.

I am confident that Atlassian can come with additional and innovative macros and functions to add value to Confluence. In 6 months, Atlassian transformed a good collaborative tools into a more comprehensive system that can help manage projects and processes, as well as "talk" with other Atlassian products like Jira. We are in fact learning more about Jira to evaluate a possible fit to complement our tool box.

Confluence can - and in my personal opinion, it will - be a bit hard to use in the first moment. Atlassian is a great company and is eager to help you with any question you have, though. The interface seems to be a bit clumsy at first but the customization options are enough to make it easier and simpler. In general, Confluence is easy to use when you understand what each section does, but this can take a while.

Using this tool is a no-brainer, as we said before. Its features are simple yet powerful. Besides, the product’s self-help documentation is also great. It has got some great videos on specific features and use cases. Those were of real help in the initial few days.

Performance

Pages load very quickly, which makes it useful for quickly obtaining information. The search functionality is also very quick and is able to parse through all of the documents to provide the most relevant results for the query. Other information based software gets bogged down, but so far Atlassian Confluence maintains its performance.

Support Rating

Confluence

Confluence 8.5
Based on 41 answers
I have not had a lot of support experiences with Atlassian, but of the few I have, I wasn't very satisfied with the results. I found that multiple people would respond to the issue at various stages, requiring re-communication (even though the support system stores everything and shows it to both them and you). Often responses came at odd hours, resulting in 24+ hour turnaround on basic responses, even if you respond right away. Support often asks you to do things which require downtime, and don't seem sympathetic if your organization requires that downtime to be done off-hours. This makes it difficult to resolve issues in a timely manner, if at all.I must note that I have not opened a support incident with them in close to 2 years, and it's my understanding from colleagues that there has been much improvement. My comments and ratings reflect my older experiences.

Whenever we had any issues while using the product or understanding a feature, its support team was always available. They helped us get familiar with the product and make the most of it in the initial few days itself. Its support team was literally a phone call or a message away. Very supportive and available 24x7.

Alternatives Considered

Confluence

Atlassian Confluence is a great choice for our company when compared to the 2 other knowledge base software services we have previously used. The software is more robust and has more plug-in services, such as Jira. This has been tremendously useful for us to gain visibility into project planning vs. actual hours logged. The other software platforms did not have this functionality.
Alexandria Alvarez Gerbasi | TrustRadius Reviewer

ProProfs Knowledge Base

We found ProProfs Knowledge Base more user-friendly and well-designed than the other similar tools we tried in the past. It also offers better integrations with software like Google Analytics, Zendesk, Google Translate, Freshdesk, Wufoo, and many others. That’s what gave this tool an edge over others. We can integrate it with any tool we want and expand its capabilities to gain better results.

This tool is very adaptable. So much so we use it for three completely separate projects, in three very different ways.
