The Tasytt Story

Bright-eyed and fresh from university, the founders quickly found their naïve enthusiasm sullied by an outdated handbook and an absentee training process. While each founder had different corporate learning experiences, each left them disillusioned and frustrated—existing solutions were convoluted, boring or failed to address day-to-day operations. Chris set out to find a solution. When he discovered none, he rallied the others and together they began to fill the gap.

After countless iterations, Tasytt evolved into a thoughtfully designed platform. Then, in Spring 2016, the team brought Obie to life as a bot, able to answer questions, deliver training and act as a conversational interface for the platform.

The name Tasytt is derived from the word "tacit", used to describe complex knowledge and intangible ideas that are difficult to quantify or exchange.

The Mission
