  • We've been able to leverage our support site (support.procore.com) to more efficiently onboard new clients by providing role-based learning paths, interactive workflow diagrams, and task-based tutorials. It's also our primary, single-source of truth for all things Procore for both our internal Customer Success and Support teams as well as our end users.
  • Using our web-based ticket deflection form, we prevent roughly 100 support tickets from being created every month. Countless others are deflected on a daily basis although it's difficult to track.
  • As a result of having SEO optimized content, our Support site (support.procore.com) had over 30 Google Featured Snippets, which is a step above being the #1 organic search result. Our content is featured as the #1 search result for many more common keywords and phrases in the construction industry.

  • MindTouch helps reduce knowledge and information silos by offering a place for everyone to store their content.
  • Employees are finding what they need when they need it without having to find "the guy" who knows that stuff.
  • Customers are helping themselves and solving their own issues which allows support to work on higher priority issues.

  • Time to publication can be very quick, provided there are not multiple changes in flight at the same time for the same page.
  • We have seen a tremendous increase in customer traffic and SEO.
  • MindTouch allows us to custom-brand the look and feel of our site to match our company's marketing and branding. This instills trust in our content.
  • The relative simplicity of the platform enabled us to hire the best people and best writers we could find, without worrying so much about specific past expertise in a complicated publishing platform.

  • 6566 articles used to solve 13,353 technical support calls.
  • Article usage has passed the amount of articles written in our technical support area. This is a good indication that article creation is paying off in our technical support area.

  • The time our team spends creating documentation has decreased greatly with MindTouch.
  • The ease of use has allowed us to publish more documentation to ensure every aspect of our software is covered.
  • The documentation has allowed us to provide our customers with answers to their frequently asked questions which in turn has cut down on customer service hours.

  • MindTouch has not been particularly good as a review tool. People in my company have objected to using it, so I have to copy and paste new articles into Google Docs, which has a better review function.
  • That said, as a one-person documentation department, MindTouch has been a reasonably good platform for me. It has all of the features I need to create a help website and in-product help. Since it's a web service, it's easy for me to stay in synch with engineering without the overhead of working inside the produce code base.
  • My biggest objection to it so far is that its export to PDF feature is not as advanced as I would like. It's labor intensive to get a nice looking PDF from MindTouch.

  • Prior to adopting MindTouch for our needs, we had no single point of reference for employees to publish or go to for information outside the departments. As an example, if you had wanted some documents from HR you would have to contact HR personnel. If you had wanted to request hardware from I.T., you had to get forms from I.T.

  • The integrated feedback made it simpler to generate tickets for the doc team. With the automailing feature, we were able to create an integration with our JIRA instance to get user feedback.
  • Working with translation team has been difficult; features are being built out but are not mature. The process was anything but smooth, and has resulted in lack of help centers for some regions.

  • The number of content contributors has not increased as much as we'd like. This is partially a cultural issue, but also the tool is not something easy to use. Many people use Google Docs or some other simple text editor and maybe better integration or usability more like those tools would help.

  • Providing existing clients with self-help documentation is directly responsible for retaining one of our biggest customers. Because they were having trouble training employees, they considered leaving. Building our Success Site gave them the confidence of 24/7 product support. We have reduced churn over the last two years to a single client who closed the doors. Aside from a few reductions in user licenses, all existing clients are set to renew their annual subscriptions, making this the first year we will have 100% customer renewals.
  • We have reduced the time to onboard new customers by 35-40%. Touch Points and Learning Paths for role based users focus on specific content, increase the efficiency of user training, reduced frustrations, and greatly improved product adoption.
  • Help Tickets use to be extremely time consuming with scheduled webinars and basic user training. What use to be a 30 minute phone call before MindTouch is now a reply email with a link to a help article. Through Analytics we can see a constant increase in users searching out success articles and benefiting from self-help. I personally spend 50% less time on training calls and in general helping customers with basic questions.

  • One positive impact that MindTouch has had is the reduced time to train new support team members. This reduction in training time can be attributed to the organized and accessible storage of our knowledge articles.
  • Another aspect that was positive, even with the extra effort, was the work to better understand our existing documentation. The necessity of having an understanding of the data facilitated the load of MindTouch and had the benefit of giving the business a chance to examine content.

  • Our operational efficiently has improved significantly. Prior to Mindtouch, we managing duplicate content in two separate authoring solutions. Delivering content predictably and consistently was difficult and stressful for writers. In Mindtouch, we were able to optimize our content (remove redundancies) giving us more time to test, review, and improve content quality.
  • Traffic to our knowledge center is increasing monthly.
  • Internally, SMEs and customer-facing teams are recognizing the value Mindtouch brings through self-service knowledge. These SMEs want to contribute more to content, either as contributing writers or collaborators with tech writers.
