Social Business is the biggest thing to happen to enterprise software in a generation. It brings the innovations of the social consumer web to the enterprise. You get the great social features and user experience you love in your favorite consumer apps – while at the same time meeting stringent IT requirements.

Why Social Business Software?

Traditional enterprise applications reinforce hierarchies and create siloes. With Social Business, information flows freely. Social Business Software lets people form self-organizing communities, discover each other and connect – instantly. Work gets done far more naturally and faster than ever before.

With Social Business, you can:

  • Use powerful tools and applications for sharing, collaboration and relationship building: blogs, activity streams, status updates, messaging, polling, profiles, and more.
  • Meet less, hold fewer conference calls, and even put an end to reply-all.
  • Rapidly find answers, people, expertise, conversations, and documents needed to make decisions and take action.
  • Harness the collective intelligence of your organization, partners, and customers for innovation and competitive advantage.
  • Leverage external customer communities to slash support costs, enhance marketing efforts, and crowdsource innovation.

Social Business Software is transforming business as we know it. And driving breakthroughs in productivity, sales, product innovation, and employee and customer satisfaction.
