Talkwheel is determined to push the internet into a new era of communication, one that emphasizes the importance of the group.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 16, 2011
Today, Talkwheel announced the release of its real-time roundtable group collaboration platform to the public and enterprises. Go to Talkwheel.com to create exclusive groups for all your social and professional networks while talking and sharing information on a roundtable discussion platform; no more scrolling, more interaction.
“Talkwheel is determined to push the internet into a new era of communication, one that emphasizes the importance of the group,” Jeff Harris, founder and chief executive officer of Talkwheel, said. “Talkwheel is based on the notion that discussion is the core of collaboration. Without an interactive platform capable of handling group conversation, such initiatives as Google Groups, Facebook Groups, and enterprise collaboration as a whole have suffered.”
Talkwheel has completely re-designed the conversation model. Up until now, all online conversation was linear with comments stacked one on top of another. Talkwheel has a round table design, much like a dinner-table conversation, that captures the natural flow of in-person conversations online. By visually mapping the conversation, Talkwheel creates an intimate and enjoyable group discussion platform that has found use across multiple industries. Currently, networks are spread across multiple social media sites and email, without one centralized platform that can accommodate the intimacy of conversation with friends and the professionalism required in a work setting.
According to Patrick Randolph, Associate VP at Talkwheel, the platform is finding homes in a variety of industries adding valuable social and collaborative benefits to enterprises, health care companies, and university classrooms online. Enterprises can easily manage their different project discussions on one platform instead of scattering them throughout email and instant messaging while hosting Talkwheel on-premise or in the cloud. Communications with customers for questionnaires, focus groups and surveys can finally evolve into an interactive conversation instead of a series of 1-on-1 dialogues. Talkwheel is able to leverage its design its discussion platform design with a valuable text analytics platform.
“I am certain the on-line learning experience is going to be revolutionized by Talkwheel,” Dr. Michael Kimbarow, department chair of communicative disorders of San Jose State University, said.
