TORONTO, Feb. 17, 2016 /CNW/ - Meemim, a tech startup based in Toronto, is ready to take on the problem of organizing information and knowledge within companies with their new software.
"Almost every company has difficulties collating and organizing information in such a way that employee can find it quickly when they need it. There are solutions. However, for the most part, they are ineffective. The biggest issue is the sheer amount of time users have to spend searching for information that may or may not exist," said Alec Pestov, founder and CEO of Meemim.
In most cases, information exists only as tacit knowledge because current tools make it very cumbersome and laborious to document it. But even if it is documented, which is rare, most tools make it very difficult to find that single piece of information an employee actually needs, and find it fast. For the most part, the current options for managing information and knowledge are not saving time.
Meemim developed a very unique approach to dealing with this problem. It combines proprietary search that brings only relevant results with a highly visual user interface to let users sort through results more quickly. Field tests show that this combination makes finding information in Meemim up to 10 times faster than it is in other systems. It is estimated that Meemim can save up to three hours a week per employee on searching alone. The best part, it needs to save only 10 minutes per employee in order to pay for itself.
This visual user interface doesn't just cut down time spent searching. Meemim's unique interface is a key component of the second area where Meemim has an advantage. "The industry has a real problem with user uptake and engagement," said Mr. Pestov. "Consumer software has evolved hugely in the past 10-20 years, and enterprise software really hasn't kept up. What we're trying to do with our new user interface is to combine consumer software polish and ease of use with enterprise software functionality. Meemim is a system that employees actually want to use."
Meemim comes with an array of integrations with other systems. Mr. Pestov said that these are especially important for Meemim because "right now a lot of businesses keep their information in a series of isolated digital spaces—Google Docs, SharePoint, DropBox, even FTP Servers. This is hugely inefficient. Meemim needs these integrations in order to link those isolated spaces together into one searchable, well organized hub."
No implementation costs and simple subscription pricing makes it very easy to start using Meemim in no time.
