       satisfied with the Internet
    Over 80% of the respondents
       can’t easily find information
       on the Internet

  remains constant
 Currency paid on the WWW is time,
  and time is money!

“By implementing a Knowledge Management System,
  you’re making it easier for staff to find information.
   But you’ve also created a large community within
     your organization, and this community has a
             knowledge-sharing culture.”
