knoblr Huddles was developed particularly to address the unique communication and collaboration need of today’s knowledge workers. growing need to communicate with articulated, illustrated and contextually connected knowledge content. Today’s knowledge workers across the globe face huge productivity challenges.
Most current platforms are primarily based on disjointed communication with “texting”. The verbosity that “texting” requires for meaningful communication and similarly with the use of e-mails and attachments for asynchronous communication, it makes it very hard to create a contextual and connected dialog. The “knoblr xM” knowledge exchange platform, based on a unique and highly effective “explained messaging paradigm” (xM) is an attempt to make asynchronous communication analogous to how humans communicate naturally when they are in presence of their peers. It is designed to enable context, encourage interaction & engagement and to remove the frustration that comes from an inordinate amount of time spent on “wordsmith-ing” messages, documents, context and relevance.
