Enterprise Networking Through Social Sites 2.0

I came across this article on Market Wire today, and it details the NewsGator Technologies’s latest release of Social Sites 2.0, which is a huge improvement from their social computing solution offered for Microsoft Sharepoint 2007. This release will aid users to interact more easily, collaborate, and to find the right content and people that they are looking for more efficiently.

Social networking trends in the enterprise have allowed for this application to come alive. NewsGator transformed its corporate intranet into a social network where colleagues can easily exchange information across departments.

Joe Toth, assistant VP for CME Federal Credit Union mentions:

“These features, along with the other social computing capabilities provided by the solution, have led to improved productivity by saving our employees an average of 30 minutes per day."

The release of Social Sites 2.0 is a step in the right direction for organizations that are looking into implementing collaboration software within the company.
