Create a Knowledge base

Dear Experts,

We are managing a range of equipment and software and we would like to create an "in-house" Knowledge base (for troubleshooting).
We have seen various Cloud-based solutions but we would prefer to purchase a software and install it on our Systems locally.

Could you please recommend such software?

Thank you in advace,

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Dear Johnson,

Thank you for your participation.

We are looking for a commercial product which will provide us version updates and support.
Moreover a Knowledge Base tool should have a good search engine in order to return the correct results.

Hence, could you recommend us any Business product for such use?

I have been using Folio Views for decades, having first encountered it while supporting Novell NetWare in the 90s. It had been bought out several times in those years, and changed names a bit (Folio Builder), but it makes an excellent, in-house KB tool.

It supports full text search using complex ands and ors, along with "fields" that you can use to limit your searches, and it compresses the data and indexes as you go, to save space.

If you can find the current owner, it is a great option.
