Named One of the 50 Best in the CIO Web Business 50/50 Awards

Cognitive Communications' ( intranet site, called "Blah Blah," has been named one of the top 50 intranet sites in the second annual CIO Web Business 50/50 Awards.

"Delivering on a our business objectives was a key factor in Blah Blah's design," said David Leveen, Principal, "it's exactly what we do with each site we create for our clients."

With that in mind, Blah Blah is a daily work tool -- designed to enable active knowledge sharing - among each and every employee who may be contributing, searching for and using information across all departments. The "Team Rooms" area of Blah Blah contains project information and links to all electronic documents and files used during a project, allowing all members to keep abreast of all developments within a project. DeepThoughts, Blah Blah's integrated learning and knowledge bank, facilitates best practice sharing among and between project teams.
