Who knows what?

A simple Slack bot is our answer to that question. Using only 3 commands your company or group can instantly start to leverage untapped organizational intelligence. The bot is button driven to ensure adoption is a breeze. Your team members can add skills they have and are willing to help others with and self rate the skill between 1 and 10. Other members can then look at the skill list if they have a need or want to get to know something better. If the skill is not available users can let skillzbot know that there are skills in need.

Who created this

My name is Ryan Deeds. Ive been a corporate IT manager for the past 15 years and one of the common issues I see is an unawareness of who has what skill and who is willing to help. With that thought in mind SkillzBot is birthed.
