There's a new way to connect with and learn from your colleagues. Showd.me is an innovative technology that taps into the existing knowledge of a company's employees. Traditionally, HR manages employee training and development; with Showd.me, anyone can host one-on-one or group training sessions.

Showd.me is an online peer-to-peer training platform. It allows employees to search for colleagues with a specific skill. With social media-based profiles for each user (employees can connect their LinkedIn, Google+, and Yammer profiles), employees can request training sessions with any other user, stating what they'd like to learn about, and whether they'd like to do it over the phone, in person, or online.

Showd.me combines the web-conferencing communication techonology of Adobe Connect, Google+, and WebEx. Users can share files and computer screens, and can both phone and video chat through the platform. Additionally, users can access all shared files and recordings of each session whenever they need to reference them.

Users also can facilitate group training sessions, which are not only easy to create, but just as simple to join and manage. Showd.me is ideal for companies with offices in multiple locations because it allows employees to connect through video sessions.

It is compatible with iOS and Android devices, and is integrated with the Google Calendar application. Integration with the Microsoft Outlook Calendar application is coming soon. For more information, visit www.showd.me.
