Yup… We changed our name. A large corporation started to worry that our two brands would become confused with each other; instead of fighting with them, we decided to change our name and move forward.
We actually like the new name Sharpr more than the old one. It better describes how we help our customers. Our software makes people sharper—more agile and more efficient. It helps organizations break down silos and be smarter, faster. It helps them be Sharpr.
As many of you have experienced first hand, going through a rebrand forces focus. We’ve thought deeply about who we are and where we want to go. It’s been challenging and rewarding, and we are better because of it.
So who is Sharpr, and where are we going? We help companies transition from the age of data to the age of knowledge. We help them break down information silos, improve collaboration and share what matters most—with the people who matter most. We help companies transform into what the author Peter Senge would call a “learning organization.”
Our focus continues on our main features: easy-to-create email newsletters, beautiful digital newsrooms, analytics to help you find internal trends, an app exchange that helps you make the most of other sources, and a knowledge hub that breaks down silos and fosters collaboration across your organization. In addition, we’re committed to constantly improving our system, with exciting new product innovations coming in the next few months like a revamped UI for our digital newsroom, enhanced email templates, a ‘what’s trending’ inside of Sharpr feed, and an innovative way to collaborate on decks.
The best is yet to come.

Break Down Silos
Businesses today are too often hampered by siloed departments and vertical groups. When you have silos, most people have minimal interest or understanding of how their group or individual roles could impact the overall organization.
How Sharpr helps:
The Sharpr platform allows departments, groups, and individual functions to easily discover, share, collaborate and transform the most important content into useful, meaningful knowledge. This leads to better communication, more learning, increased morale, and overall improved results for your company.
Discover, collaborate, and transform the latest consumer and market trends.
Consumer & Market Trends
Keep your executives, clients and key stakeholders updated on the latest consumer and market trends.
How Sharpr helps:
Sharpr allows you to curate the latest consumer and market trends, either through our auto-curate process or through our intelligent “Sharp IT” or screen capture tool. Once the information has been curated, you can store, manage and share it inside of your white labeled knowledge hub. You can archive and search this content through our easy-to-use tagging and category management. Finally, you can collaborate and transform that content with dynamic email newsletters, beautiful digital command centers or other knowledge-sharing tools, such as Sharepoint sites or as an Intranet solution, with our flexible API and growing App exchange.
Use Sharpr’s Knowledge Platfrom to collaborate and share important information across Product, Marketing, Sales and Customer functions to win more business.
