Product Description

Static FAQs quickly grow stale. Bulletin boards and chat can create booming online communities, but each has its limitations. Chat puts schedule constraints on experts and limits responses. Bulletin boards may allow for posts by an expert, but the random postings of other visitors are given equal weight, and the thread of the discussion can be hard to follow.

The ExpertViewpoint™ system ensures that content will be generated on a regular basis, but on the expert's schedule, and with time for thoughtful response. Instead of randomized postings of visitors' observations, the responses of the chosen expert are methodically organized by category and are fully searchable, and are published only as permitted by the expert or the administrator.
