Frequently Asked Questions

What is Grasp?

Grasp is a Knowledge Engine and a hosted Platform as a Service (PaaS) that simplifies how organizations connect, communicate and collaborate across their entire workforce, offices and work groups.

Grasp breaks down geographic and time barriers, and automates many business functions (document sharing, on-boarding/training, support, knowledge and resource management). Grasp is a simple, easy-to-own replacement platform for your Content Management System (CMS), Learning Management (LMS), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Document/Knowledge Management (KM) and Resource Management (RM) services.

We started Grasp because many businesses need applications like Intranets, team collaboration/social business, customer support, training systems and CRM but they don’t want the complexity and expense of services like Sharepoint and Salesforce.com.   We priced Grasp in reach for any size business and constructed it so a non-technical person can use it easily.

Who uses Grasp?

We designed Grasp specifically for knowledge based workers.  Principal users are leaders and professionals in the accounting, consulting, education, engineering, financial services, marketing, training and software/web development industries.

However, any organization that wants the ability to share best practices, align strategy and work, innovate new products  and services, engage employees, and leverage external talent and knowledge via marketplaces should look into Grasp.

How much does Grasp cost?
Grasp has a per user cost ranging from $6 per month to $10 per month.   There are three major modules to choose from and combine.  You can upgrade at any time after signing up.
What are the Grasp "modules"?

Modules are specific functionality you can use in your Grasp.

Module 1 is the CONNECT, COMMUNICATE & COLLABORATE module.  This gives you features such as Secure, Individual User Profiles and Single sign-on login; and Peer and Friend connections to build your directory.  It also includes Private Groups, Forums and full Drive/Document Management capabilities.  In addition, you’ll have a Calendar/Event/Invitation system to take, set and manage appointments, Activity monitoring and tracking, and a private and public messaging system, including group messaging, and chat/instant messaging.  Learn more in our Solutions and Features sections.

Module 2  is the KNOWLEDGE & LEARNING module.  This gives you a fully functioning Knowledge Base with contextual search by category and topic; unlimited article and wiki-like document and attachment creation.  You will also create unlimited lesson and courses with full learner management, including grading and quizzes.

Module 3 is CLIENT & FIRM MANAGEMENT module – Create true insight into your organization with private directories, client lists, Subject Matter Experts and any kind of data tables you can imagine.   You can create your own Customer Relationship Management system, job boards, event listings, timesheet submissions and more.  This is an extraordinarily powerful tool for business development and firm management.

Module 4 is the CUSTOMER SUPPORT & TICKETING module – Do you want your clients to submit inquiries and report service issues through a cloud-based issue tracker and ticketing system?  Now you can.   Provide FAQs, a Knowledge Base, Customer Support Chat and more.  Acknowledge receipt of inquiries, assign issues to specific people, resolve and close issues to demonstrate superior customer service.

Module 5 is the PRIVATE MEMBER & PAID CONTENT module – Engage your fans.  Start a movement.  Build a professional or social community — we’ll give you the tools to manage it, including subscription plans, pricing, and  renewal periods.   Separate free and paid content, too.  This is so much more powerful, secure and valuable than a Facebook Fan Page.  Your own Private Member site enables you to build select communities of users and monetize your content.
