Higher University Rankings:
Long Term Relationship Building

“[U]sers of Expertise-Find were able to form some lasting relationships with individuals found using the tool. Some users have noted that the relationship has evolved beyond the purpose of one-time information acquisition; they have also interacted with the experts repeatedly and sometimes in social settings.”

Why Journalists Want Higher Education Experts Finding Tool

“Because Expertise-Find can effectively locate the source of information, it reduces the search cost of finding information that is ultimately affecting performance.”

“[B]y contacting people from the search result, users are more likely to reach out to a distant group of people with whom they would not have associated with before.”

Reinforce Media Relations’ Role

“I find that brokers continue to reap benefit from an increase in their brokering positions after they have adopted Expertise-Find."

"Nonadopters can be viewed as information providers because Expertise-Find users can contact them for information, but they cannot use Expertise-Find to contact experts.”

Why You Need an Experts Directory

A formidable experts directory on your site leverages your experts to build your brand, a key to a higher ranking and strong enrollment.

From a professor interviewed on TV after a journalist searched your experts directory to a private sector partnership because your expert ranked high on Google, our experts directory software and experts platform bring more attention to your institution.
