Cons: Analytics functionality that it is built-in. It is not fully reliable. The product is still being continuously improved so there some features still missing.

Comments: Pros:
Quick to implement,
Easy to administer
Feature rich
Excellent Support which is very responsive
( when support is correctly or incorrectly perceived as "slow to respond" they still meet expectations and surpass other vendor support response times)

Cons:
Reporting is not as robust as it should be. Though other tools can provide this function, it would be good to improve on this as an out of the box solution that can meet customer analytic requirements.
Documentation can be improved on

In a fast paced changing environment, Answerhub has provided a tool that is intuitive, robust and requires minimum support. This allows for quick adoption, deployment, and savings in implementation costs. When support is required, the team is responsive, professional, customer oriented and show the highest caliber of any support team I have worked with.

Easy and fast tool to use as a Q&A site

Comments: It is a tool that offers more than just a question and answer model; it allows you to create an interactive Q&A community. Users earn points and badges for useful participation while providing relevant answers to the community┬┐s questions. At the same time, users build up their own reputation as an expert in a defined area. You can also share your ideas to ensure that good ideas aren't overlooked.

The AnswerHub is another way to share knowledge among employees, partners and customers and is a great solution for reducing barriers between people, departments and companies. While posting questions, answers, comments or ideas, together we create an enormous, well-organized base.

Pros
- Powerful for building the knowledge base based on questions/answers

- A great channel for less official customer support: it enables to provide tips, suggestions or incomplete answers which are sometimes good enough for the customer┬┐s need rather to create a ticket in the support system.

- Spaces, topics, questions and ideas can be clearly organized and managed

- A user contribution is well tracked, reputation is clearly visible

- The reputation gamification is cute.

- The related questions feature is really useful

- Topic list is useful, if people tag questions appropriately. Also useful in finding out the experts in certain areas and questions in that area.

- The team is eager to improve the tool by adding new features.

Cons
- Unfriendly admin console

- A large range of roles (permissions) for specific actions on the site might be overwhelming at first

Comments: Pros:
-It was very easy to get up and going. The design was intuitive for the whole team to come up to speed on.
-Publishing new and editing existing articles is very easy.
-Gamification/recognition was good motivation for team members to engage with the platform.
-Pricing was straightforward and our tier fits our company well.
-Customer service team is very responsive.

Cons:
-The gamification could use some tweaking. It gave a little too much weight to Q&A versus submitting an article to the knowledgebase. That could have just been specific to our company though.
-Notifications settings take some testing.

*NOTE: We are only using the platform internally. I can't speak to how well it works for external use.

Comments: It's been a great experience. Answerhub for the most part is straightforward to use. There's some functionalities that are more confusing to use (eg. permissions), and we came across some kinks in our platform. But this was quickly resolved when I brought it up. I think what makes this product great is the customer support .

Comments: Using AnswerHub has allowed users to ask questions online and then we can have SME's provide timely answers/. The search feature means that we do not have to answer the same question multiple times. In addition, an answer can be expanded on and also provide links to more complete documentation.

We have recently added a manual to AnswerHub and the response from our users has been very positive.

However, the very best part of AnswerHub is their amazing Customer Service. Everyone we have dealt with has been professional, intelligent, patient and a joy to work with. Calls and emails are responded to very quickly. Just excellent customer service.
