Free Software for Creating Knowledge Base

Bitrix24 is a platform with free knowledge management tools. Available in the cloud or on-premise with open source code access.

Collecting, structuring and exchanging existing information is the key to efficient collaboration. It applies to a company as a whole and to working teams that share projects or tasks. However, the bigger company grows, the harder this information exchange goes. Too many people, processes, details can confuse. Therefore, it is essential for a company to form some solid foundation of knowledge. Likely for you, Bitrix24 presents convenient knowledge base software. It contains several tools for knowledge management and collaboration.

First of all, there are two types of knowledge bases – for a company and for project/workgroups. You can create a knowledge base that applies to everyone in the company, for example, some basics for newbies or office rules. Workgroup or project knowledge bases are slightly different and apply only to those people who participate in the project or are included in the working group. Any of the knowledge bases can be customized in terms of appearance and access rights. With existing templates, establishment of the knowledge base will become easy. Also, you can give other users permission to create, edit and manage them.

Probably, Bitrix24 is the best knowledge base software with open source code option you’ve seen, because it has much more than even that! For free Bitrix24 has the Mind Map app integration, built-in online document drive with 5GB storage, social knowledge management and good old Wiki. What is also great, there are free communication tools, such as chats, calls, videoconferences and emails, task management with all major features included and HR system that will help to maintain workload and performance.
