An Innovative Collaborative Question and Answer Community for the Enterprise

Let's face it, we all know that someone somewhere out there has the answer to a question or a problem that you have. The hard part is finding that someone. CEOs will always tell you that an organization's greatest asset is the cumulative knowledge of its employees.

IQJam helps you locate and harness the power of that knowledge with exceptional ease.

Introducing IQJam!

IQJam is the perfect solution for organizations looking to capitalize on the knowledge of their employees. The concept is amazingly simple - people ask questions and other people answer them.

Questions and their answers can be voted up or down. Voting allows the IQJam community to identify questions that they would like to see answered. Voting on answers helps identify the correct answer as well as eliminate ones that may be incorrect. Once the correct answer has been entered, it is marked by the user as being "answered".
