“This partnership with introNetworks delivers professional social graph technology within Socialtext, bringing richer context to the people and teams that drive a business”
With introNetworks' patented Pin View, people can identify which colleagues inside their organization share similar interests and expertise, or search for people associated with a specific topic. By integrating this technology, Socialtext brings better context to the data, information, and knowledge shared by people inside its enterprise social networking platform.
"This partnership with introNetworks delivers professional social graph technology within Socialtext, bringing richer context to the people and teams that drive a business," says Eugene Lee, Socialtext's CEO. “introNetworks adds a layer of contextual data to enterprise social networking profiles that makes it easier to find relevant colleagues.”
The introNetworks technology identifies valuable connections within a company and presents them as a “smart social network.” introNetworks can now be embedded virtually anywhere inside Socialtext enterprise social networking platform, which includes wikis, blogs, social networking profiles, group pages and personalized home pages. Whichever social app a person works in, their professional connections inside their company will be right there at their fingertips.
“We have long believed that rich collaboration begins with strong connections. This embedded capability in the Socialtext platform will provide companies a dynamic new approach to quickly find the best matches to solve their business challenges,” says Mark Sylvester, introNetworks’ CEO.
Some mutual Socialtext and introNetworks customers are excited to participate in early beta deployments, including McCann World Group.
“We believe in delivering a solution to our employees that allows them to take the greatest advantage of the flow of information inside the organization,” says Greg Smith, EVP and CIO, McCann Worldgroup. “By combining these two platforms, this will serve as a catalyst in our ability to build stronger teams and harness more of our intellectual capital faster.”
The introNetworks offering will be available to Socialtext customers in Q3. To leverage this new capability, existing customers should contact their Socialtext representative. New customers should contact email@example.com.
