The spree knowledge exchange community

Welcome to the home of the spree - the knowledge exchange network project.

spree is an expert search engine where users ask questions to find other participating users, who are knowledgeable in that area and willing to help.

spree identifies the most qualified experts to a given question automatically and in real-time.

spree facilitates real-time communication between users and experts via its chat interface.

spree aims to create an active online community, especially in enterprises, where every user can ask questions or act as an expert helping fellow users.

spree helps you find answers you can't find on the web. It's a great way to network with fellow professionals and get answers and advice from knowledgeable sources.

spree is being jointly developed by
