The workplace has changed. Teams now live in different parts of the country and, possibly, even the world. Collaborating across projects and continents is becoming the new norm. Distributed teams live and die by their ability to quickly learn, share key knowledge and take the right action at the right time.
But there is a problem. Currently stuff is scattered and disorganized all over the place and the products meant to solve this content sprawl, like SharePoint and Confluence, are expensive, difficult to use and hard to search.
In building a solution the Shelf team went beyond software and set out to understand the Science of Organization. They consulted Harvard librarians, change management experts, and information architects. With the help of these global thought leaders, knowledge management best practices were built into the core of the product.
Shelf is designed to help declutter and organize your most important content. Everything about Shelf, from our search to our customer support, reflects the passion and drive of our team to build a better way to harness knowledge and make things easy to find and share. People use Shelf to find the information they need to publish a story, make a pitch, or close an important deal, without the pain of redoing work or wasting time tracking things down.
Its Shelf’s mission to help millions of distributed teams throughout the globe accelerate their ability to learn, share and succeed. We are reimagining the library for the workplace of tomorrow and won’t stop until we’ve integrated all the important places where important content is buried. Shelf is the missing link in a rapidly evolving, distributed workplace.
