With access to valuable hardware and software information, self-service support has increased 75% in less than 6 months

Esko recently announced the successful implementation of its online Knowledge Base system. This system, part of a complete Esko help centre available at, is a digital platform for customer support self-service. It is accessible for Esko users worldwide and can be navigated in a number of languages.

Esko is responding to customer preferences that more users prefer to access online resources as their ‘first line’ of immediate support. The online help system delivers more options for people to learn about the software and equipment and offers creative, insightful answers to ‘How would I do this?’; not just solving technical problems. Their efforts have clearly paid off as visitor traffic has increased 75% from its launch less than 6 months ago.

The Knowledge Base library is Wiki-based and searchable. It is populated with articles written by Esko experts: support associates, product specialists, and others who have a good sense of what is – and what is not – helpful, practical information. Each article goes through an extensive auditing process to ensure it is valuable, categorized properly and technically correct. New content is constantly added based on an analysis of site use and user feedback.
