Mission

At 6Connex, our mission is really pretty simple – connection.  Sure, we have a great SaaS platform and an awesome services team, but ultimately we build software that enables our customers to create Virtual Destinations designed to drive real business connections.

We connect people to each other.  Prospects to product experts.  Hiring managers to job seekers.  Trainers to trainees.  Employees to executives.

We connect people to content.  Live training presentations.  Job listings.  New product specs.  On-demand video tutorials. Employee policies and procedures.  Sales strategies.  Executive interviews.

We look forward to connecting with you to discuss how to bring your virtual program to life.
