Enabling self-service in your organization
With BMC Digital Workplace, end users can solve problems themselves before filing an incident, opening an HR case, or talking to support staff. IT and other support staff can create knowledge articles, and create links to online product documentation (internal or external), troubleshooting tips, tutorials, videos, and other resources. Users can also import knowledge articles.
End users can then access those resources through search (in the Superbox or from the Catalog tab) or from the profile of an asset or service.
In knowledge articles, you can include a link directly to an appropriate service request or catalog section. Users will feel more confident about turning to self-help resources when they know that help is only a click away.
