“The acquisition will enable us to expand our market presence to become a significant player in the knowledge base software segment,” said Sameer Bhatia, CEO of ProProfs.

ProProfs announced today that it has acquired HelpIQ, a cloud-based knowledge base software (, that makes it easy to create an online help center, knowledge base, user manual, FAQ and much more. Leading companies such as Adobe, Spirit Airlines, Accenture, and Nissan trust HelpIQ for their online documentation.

Developed in 2010 in San Francisco, HelpIQ is cloud-based software for creating and managing online documentation and context-sensitive help. It enables users to create a user-friendly knowledge base without development or IT help. The fully customizable knowledge base requires no downloads or installations.

“The acquisition will enable us to expand our market presence to become a significant player in the knowledge base software segment,” said Sameer Bhatia, CEO of ProProfs. “Companies are increasingly seeking cloud-based solutions. HelpIQ software makes it easy for a company to create an online help center for their products and services to live in. This knowledge can be instantly accessed and searched by customers, employees and partners from anywhere in the world.”

ProProfs plans to support and extend the HelpIQ software platform in the following ways:

Enhanced Customer Support: The ProProfs support team is driven to improve the service provided to HelpIQ users by offering phone support in addition to enhanced 24X7 email and chat support.

Faster Product Improvement: The team at ProProfs will consistently add new features and enhance those already available. We would be expanding the development team to speed up the release of new features and handle customer requests faster. Customers can expect several new features like branded sites, conditional content, member management and more.

More Integrations: We plan on launching many more integrations with other products as well as with ProProfs native products.
