LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Press Release Highlights
• BCSocial latest release focused on making teams more productive before expanding benefits to a whole business
• Aimed at regaining the 20% productivity lost in knowledge businesses due to unstructured and ad hoc processes
• 30-day money back guarantee on paid version if users not seeing benefits of a fully deployed team system
BCSocial, the collaboration platform for businesses that need to get things done, today launched their latest version that takes a radical new approach to delivering productivity improvements in businesses. Focused squarely on making teams and projects more productive, the developers believe that starting with smaller units inside a business is the only way to deliver the output, efficiency and profitability gains that businesses seek from these platforms.
According to widely-researched data, UK and global knowledge businesses are losing up to 20% of productivity per employee. This is due to email overload, file search and retrieval and an inability to quickly create and access the content and commentary required to effectively deliver on projects, respond to customers and find the expertise needed from co-workers and contractors.
“Effective collaboration starts in small units and with this release we wanted to make sure that project teams from the smallest to very large could see immediate benefits from deploying our platform,” said Bostjan Bregar, CEO of BCSocial. “We have pulled the people, the documents, the versioning, the workflows, insight, archiving and search for any single team into the same shared space and let them get on with doing their jobs effectively.”
BCSocial believes that by building out from a single team and select projects then companies as a whole will start to realise the significant productivity benefits of a collaboration platform. Smaller businesses in particular will benefit from this focus on delivering benefits from the very outset of a BCScocial deployment.
“Our commitment to new users is to try BCSocial in one team or project” , said Gerry Carr, Chief Marketing Officer for BCSocial. “If new users do not start to see the efficiency, business collaboration and process benefits in a team after 30 days then we’ll give them their money back.”

Management Oversight: Managers can easily get snapshots of activities and contributors in all teams, projects and customers and drill in for more detail on business collaboration.
How it works
BCSocial pulls together the documentation, communication and activities across a business into a single system. These elements are rarely organised in the same way as process-heavy interactions that are typically automated by CRM or ERP systems.
Consequently the introduction of a more organized business collaboration environment like BCSocial can see the most dramatic impact on the productivity and engagement per employee. BCSocial brings these benefits to a business much more quickly through its focus on starting with teams rather than the company as a whole.
