Introducion

The know-how of a company or organization is a highly valuable intangible asset, and as such, usually is not considered in a company’s statement. The goal of Knowledge Management is to utilize the know-how, to obtain competitive advantages for your company or NGO. Be assured that you can make much more out of your own Know-How if you manage it well.

The term Knowledge Management summarizes all activities with the goal of using knowledge in a more efficient and effective manner. These activities are not only technological in nature, but they also include organizational and human talent aspects. With a Knowledge Management Project (KM) an organization can centralize all its experience and know-how in one system. At Stocker Group, we provide the Solutions that deliver precise information at the right time and place.

Knowledge Management is an integrated process

Knowledge Management (KM) involves sensitive areas of a company or organization. For the deployment of this methodology it is indispensable support and guidance each step of the way. At Stocker Group we accompany you, advising you on the analysis of the situation / requirements, the deployment of software and finally analysis of the results.

We analyze your company or organization, categorize your knowledge (know how) and according to this reality, we advise you on the selection of experts and administrators.

We incorporate the data recollected from the analysis in a technological solution, in a way that the software adapts to your specific needs. Depending on the situation of your company software already in the market or a custom built solution can be used..

We train, sensitize and advise users, experts and administrators so that the system can be used in an efficient manner.

Impact measurement involves deploying a solution that allows its users to evaluate results in their tasks. Our experience shows us cases in which savings in costs are observed by avoiding "reinventing the wheel"..
