  • With MindWire, organizations can create small, closed communities to share content and training materials from a trusted source.
  • MindWire’s authoring hierarchy was designed to allow organizations to create training materials on the world’s most pervasive mobile device whenever needed, without needing to contract with third-party vendors for content development, from the top down. MindWire includes a free-for-end-users application, along with a robust, branded desktop authoring system to create push content to subscribed devices.
  • Members of those communities subscribe to the appropriate training decks and effortlessly receive multimedia rich, iPhone flashcards as they become available.
