• Capturing knowledge requires a strategy of collecting relevant information and turning it into an explicit form that is flexible and straightforward.
• Processing knowledge requires structuring knowledge components into knowledge products and processes with a context that make sense.
• Depending on the chosen strategy, it may include the development of a taxonomy, folksonomy, or both.
• Upgrading knowledge requires the ability to publish and cooperate on knowledge products and processes in flexible ways so that everyone is able to obtain the knowledge just-in-time, just-in-place and just-in-style. The TeleCommunity platform allows users to publish and communicate in different ways: one to one, one to team, cross-team, one to many, and many to many.

What are our strengths?
The TeleCommunity platform features Your WebAssistant: a unique multifunctional interface that you can add to your browser's toolbar.
It allows you to create and organize links, extract and write texts, upload files - in other words, add all kinds of digital content - to a personal web database, called Your WebDB.
Based on our 'store once, use in many ways'-philosophy, you can then search, contextualize and re-contextualize the content of your WebDB in all kinds of products and processes. You can choose to publish all or part of these products for easy sharing and flexible collaboration with others.
The TeleCommunity server and client are both cross-platform (Windows, Linux, Mac) and all the TeleCommunity members need to participate is a browser.
Since the knowledge aggregation is server based, it can be accessed from anywhere in the world. All Intellectual Capital is documented 'by working with it' and knowledge is retained in the organisation, even if someone leaves.
If the TeleCommunity owner decides to let his TC host by a third party, then he does not need to worry about upgrades or tech support. He can start right away with a powerful hosted version that gives him all the benefits of a professional, robust and scalable platform, with an automated backup-system.
WebAssistant.com has created alliances with the Areopa group of consultants (active in change management, knowledge management/eLearning, and Intellectual Capital management) and with FreshBusiness, Social Synergy and S2KM.

What is knowledge? What is a knowledge product?
At WebAssistant.com, we define knowledge as organizing principles for personal and collective worldviews, plus the content to which these principles refer to.
A knowledge product consists of information, framed into a context that makes sense to the user.
What is a worldview? What is intellectual capital?
At WebAssistant.com, we define a worldview as the sum of an actor's intellectual capital - a more or less integrated collection of information, knowledge, know how, experience and expertise - on the basis of which an actor interacts with the world. Actors can be individual people, but also groups and organisations. Elements in worldviews are often surpressed and unconscious, lacking coherence and integration, which leads to underperformance and conflicts.
