Empower your teams to quickly find the experts they need! Or better yet, focus on the What and Why and leave the Who to automation

Who are the experts?

Who is the SME? Who worked on this component before? Who has experience with this technology? Whom do I talk to for a decision on that? Search or explore the Skill graph to easily find relevant people in the organization

Who is qualified for the job?

Set skill requirements for a task or a support ticket and see all qualified experts on your team. Make use of diverse skill sets of every worker in your organization, currently hidden behind their roles and team rooms

What's my next assignment?

Define work queues and skill requirements and let your team pull the next most important task they are qualified for. You control the scope, priorities and WIP. Build a culture of self-reliance and continuous learning
