Do you know how much impact the loss of employee knowledge has on your organization when you have planned or unexpected employee turnover or vacancies and what it is costing you?


Are your sales & marketing teams as aligned and effective as they should be? Do you know what’s working and what isn’t with regards to the information, knowledge and collateral they provide? How much time do your people waste searching for what they need and how much does that cost?


Compendian® helps organizations identify, capture, retain and capitalize on their critical knowledge assets to solve these problems.

Here’s the Business Problem

Companies invest tens of millions of dollars to develop knowledge and will say that the success of their business depends on the knowledge and skills of their people, but most have no formal practice in place to identify and capture those knowledge assets before they are lost.

A knowledge drain is occurring, while knowledge management is lacking.


of executives say that knowledge and/or information loss as employees left was important


of employers say they lose specialized knowledge and expertise faster than they gain it.


of companies have formal practices to stop the knowledge drain in their organizations.

of companies lack any formal knowledge management systems and/or processes to identify, capture, manage and share critical data, documents and information.

Here’s the Sales Problem

When Sales & Marketing don’t capture and leverage the knowledge assets they have, so they can be found quickly, they are faced with these challenges:


Top Challenges to Sales Execution


Of pipeline is stuck in “no decision” because value has not been effectively communicated.

Didn’t present value


Of selling content is never used in selling because sales can’t find the right resources.

= Can’t find resources


Of sales reps’ time is spent not selling when they’re busy with other tasks or searching for content.

= Less time selling

88 %

Of opportunities missed when sales can’t leverage internal resources.

Wasted time = missed opportunities


Here’s Manufacturing’s Problem

Every month more than a quarter million Americans turn 65 and head towards retirement – these are the most experienced employees in the organization and they’re taking irreplaceable, tribal knowledge with them. Saving this knowledge will be essential to avoiding large expertise gaps.

    • Identify – what is important and critical and who and what needs to be captured.

    • Capture – that tacit/tribal knowledge and expertise from those people, as well as any drawing, instructions, manuals, processes, procedures, competitive information, etc.
