Our patented flagship is the Synxi Knowledge
Knowledge Discovery delivers to users continuous, contextualized, and personalized content recommendations as users navigate SharePoint knowledge bases. This user-tunable function delivers just the right information at the right time—even when a user would otherwise not know that they need the information, or even that it exists. It's an incredibly simple thing that sits as a webpart on your SharePoint site. We've learned that simple makes for easy adoption so users don't need to do a thing if they don't want to. But Synxi sits in the background, learning from what they do, and providing recommendations as they browse SharePoint libraries. And the more it's used, the better Synxi gets.

Synxi Expertise Discovery is a patented
technology that delivers
continuous, contextualized, and personalized recommendations of other
users with relevant expertise. Best of all, this function automatically
infers levels of expertise—it does not require explicit expertise
profiles to effectively operate. Click on the screen shot below to see more.
So for you techies, here's the lowdown. We need a little space on a database server. It's a regular MS SQL 2008R2 database just like SharePoint 2010 uses. Yup, SQL2012 is fine too. Nothing weird or special, we just need a place to store our stuff and we don't want to mess up your SP databases. Install the db one time, and then put our web parts wherever you like in your sites. We're going run some background jobs on a timer and we promise not to slow down your servers. Synxi functions run best on SharePoint 2010 Standard and Enterprise. We love Enterprise, because it gives us more information to use.
If you are running SharePoint on premises, we're implemented as a full trust solution (farm feature) with a wizard installer that takes less than an hour to install, create a database and add the web parts where you want them.
If you are running SharePoint in the cloud in
a private hosting situation (we use & love Rackspace for example), Synxi
runs just the same as on premises. We can even run the service securely for
Yes! Synxi is a web service that has a REST API and a Visual Web Part in SharePoint 2010 and an app in 2013. Clever folks who optimize user experience can make Synxi into an interface that actually adapts to how people are using it. Out of the box, Synxi looks very simple with our Visual Web Part, but you can make it into the Cadillac version to suit your needs. We can recommend some top notch folks for you to work with if you'd like to do this.
Synxi's very affordable. After all, the more people who use it and thus the more often it is used, it gets better and better, so we made it inexpensive and highly scaleable. Cheaper than a cappuccino and cookie at Starbucks per user per year. You can check out our pricing page.
