7Summits Announces Social Intranet Solution to Improve Employee Engagement and Increase Productivity
By Deepika Mala
Social intranets are the next generation of the traditional employee portal; offering enhanced collaboration tools that foster a culture of innovation.
Realizing the importance of this, 7Summits, a social business solutions provider recently introduced its social intranet solution that helps drive business results through employee collaboration.
Officials said that the company’s approach to social intranets has been designed to help companies connect employees to the information, business tools and colleagues that they need to be most effective at work.
“Our Social Intranet solutions are designed to help organizations get up and running quickly,” said Paul Stillmank, CEO of 7Summits, in a statement. “The key is to stay focused on business results which require delivery of a purpose-driven experience. Our solution was developed for specific industries like higher education, software, high tech, healthcare and financial services, with more to come.”
The social intranet offers employees access to files, projects, messages and apps. It also allows real-time commenting and discussion forums.
This centralized communication hub is more effective than traditional business communication systems, like email, file sharing, instant messaging and phone calls.
The development of 7Summits Social Intranet solution is based on extensive experience implementing social intranets for companies across various industries over the past five years.
Officials confirmed that the offering provides an easy entry point for companies, looking to transition from their existing employee portal to a new technology framework, but with a purpose.
“The power of our social intranet has gone far beyond what we initially imagined it could be,” said Andrew Mishalove, Global Social Business Strategist for Groupon. “It started out as a collaboration tool and has grown into a true engagement tool, allowing employees to communicate just as seamlessly as they did before our global expansion.”
7Summits Social Intranet solutions include a range of managed services that various firms are taking advantage of, from ongoing community management to employee dashboard analysis, measurement and analytics, activation and adoption services, and even overall outsourcing of solution development and management.
