The machine learning and social aspects of the Soaq platform mixed with the stickiness and engaging nature of video proves to be an effective way of targeting the right people at the right time, with the most relevant content.As a private video platform, users and their peers can safely and easily create, upload and consume content that allows for a more personal and welcoming way to learn, engage and communicate internally. What's more, is that since Soaq is a secure enterprise solution, it gives organizations using it full control over the content, and assurance that it is safe and protected by banking-grade security measures.
