Who We Are
We were founded in February 2012 as the digital arm of our sister company, Straits Knowledge, which is a leading global provider of knowledge management (KM) consulting services.
We support our clients with specialised digital tools and applications to help them do their jobs better. We develop our own tools and we partner with other best-in-class software application providers.
Our first product is Aithin™, a unique knowledge mapping and knowledge audit analytics application, intended to support knowledge audits, KM assessments, and KM planning initiatives.
We are proud to be Gold Partner and Authorised Reseller of Synaptica™, one of the world's leading enterprise taxonomy management solution providers. Taxonomy development is a natural extension of knowledge mapping.
Every expansion to our portfolio is strategic, to provide our clients with a coordinated suite of tools, and to make the difficult work of knowledge management simpler, and more effective.
