Meet Highspot, a service to find all the knowledge that slips through the cracks
Every company suffers from the same problem: Key documents are emailed, buried, and then forgotten about—until they’re needed. Then the cycle repeats again. But a pair of ex-Microsoft execs say they have the solution. Their new startup, Highspot, actually looks very Google-y: Users can sign up to follow and funnel their own data into “spots,” but can also search for what they want using natural language via a search box. And the service also “bubbles up” relevant information, so that if a co-worker finds a relevant news story, for example, Highspot will push that to your attention.
