Cogo Digital: Corporate Knowledge Capture Made Easy

Cogo Digital: Corporate Knowledge Capture Made Easy

Media release: May 28, 2014

Ensuring all company knowledge is shared, mapped and captured within an organisation is the mission of Cogo Digital, a startup looking to revolutionise knowledge management worldwide.

Without altering an employee’s actions, Cogo’s software works behind the scenes to capture data from emails, online conversations, documents and more. Employees can then search that information to acquire knowledge about projects, meetings and programs they may have missed.

Founded by Marcelo Hudson, Joseph Milsom and Hannah Faesenkloet in March 2014 at digital startup accelerator Lightning Lab, Cogo’s software layers on top of existing management and productivity software such Yammer, to give you a more in-depth and dynamic source of employee knowledge.

“We are developing a system that puts the knowledge and expertise of your organisation in your hands,” says CCO Faesenkloet. “When an employee leaves a company and a new one joins, or even when one person is out sick, there is a gap in knowledge transfer that slows down business. We are looking to retain all the knowledge created by an organisation so it is easily discoverable to all employees.”

Seeing early momentum from corporate testing, Cogo currently has three companies in agreement to pay for trials, and has 680 employees overall testing the software among five companies.

Taking the stage this week in Lightning Lab’s concluding event, Demo Day, Cogo is seeking participation from companies for trials of the software while the team focuses on expanding the product to integrate with more existing knowledge management systems

“We want to ensure that as you grow, your staff is as smart, efficient and effective as they can be by empowering them with access to their organisation’s knowledge,” says Faesenkloet.
