With HostBill you can reduce customer service to minimum by offering your customers a self-service knowledgebase. The knowledgebase is a source of information that can be obtained by clients without sending a support ticket. Knowledgebase can contain how-to articles divided into different categories, easily browsed and filtered by your clients. The articles are created by staff members and they are added to a given categories. Some articles can be visible only for registered clients (if you enable such option during article creation) and some can be accessible for all users. You can allows your clients to votes for the articles (you can enable/disable this feature in HostBill admin area → Settings → Support) and let customers add Disqus comments to knowledge base articles through additional free module.
