Company Summary

Universities are large sprawling organizations with knowledgeable faculty and loyal alumni, yet the expertise to be found within these communities is often vastly underutilized. To fix this we have created an expertise finding network to be licensed for use within universities and their alumni communities. Our system helps automatically create expertise profiles, provides a powerful search functionality, and makes communication very easy.
