Getting Your Team on KnowHow

It's surprisingly easy! We have a team of KnowHow Customer Success specialists that, within a few brief phone calls, can extract the most critical processes from your team. Alternatively, you can build on our 100+ pre-built templates, or allow our powerful artificial intelligence process generator to help get you started.

What Is KnowHow?
What do you mean by a process?
A process is a step-by-step guide to completing a task. Sometimes called procedures or SOPs, anything that tells your team how to get to where they're going would fit in this category.
Is KnowHow a Learning Management System (LMS)?
KnowHow is a “doing management system”, equipping team members out in the field who are actively working, with your instructions on how to complete their tasks. Many of our clients use KnowHow to onboard team members, but then supplement that by keeping their expertise in every employee's pocket while they're on-the-job.
The Difference KnowHow Makes
What makes KnowHow better than the way we currently do things?
KnowHow removes the outdated process binders that nobody reads, preserves the time of veteran employees who are using their valuable time to answer too many questions, and helps front-line workers find the relevant information without having to navigate inaccessible cloud-based drives. KnowHow is an intuitive app with all your company's 'how-to', easy-to-update, accessible anywhere, and with enhanced reporting and documentation abilities for compliance.
We have processes, but we have no way of knowing if anyone follows them, how can KnowHow help?
KnowHow keeps a record of the time and date every task was completed, so you'll know exactly who is following your company's expertise, and who isn't
Why would a worker want to use KnowHow?
Bloated, ugly software is a thing of the past. KnowHow feels like Facebook or Instagram, and is consistently praised for its intuitiveness. As our customer John Evans likes to say, “Finally, software our employees want to use!”
Can my staff access KnowHow on their mobile phones and tablets in the field?
Yes! KnowHow is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, and once downloaded, can be accessed online so your staff has access to your expertise even in the most remote locations.
Many of my staff struggle to read our processes in English, how can KnowHow help empower these team members in our company?
With KnowHow's Instant Spanish Translation, your team members can read your English processes in Spanish. More languages are coming soon, so stay tuned!
