Our Corporate Social Networking application, Innovate, is offered as a core application within the Platform and enables intranet users to post comments and actively engage with colleagues. The Corporate Social Networking application is a collaborative platform allowing multiple users to share information within their intranet.
We understand that many organisations prefer to adopt a phased approach to the introduction of social features on their intranet. Claromentis fully supports this approach as our social application, Innovate, can be added at a later date, or removed completely from the Claromentis Intranet Platform. Due to the complete permission system organisations can also pilot the social application to a particular group of users to establish its benefits.
Various channels can be created and controlled using the comprehensive permission system. This permission system allows intranet administrators to set-up appropriate channels based on their organisation's departmental structure or project teams. Permission-rights can be assigned on an individual, group or role basis and ensures that relevant information is presented to the appropriate intranet users.
Intranet users can post comments into channels they've been assigned permission-rights. The author's profile information, comment and submission date will be displayed in the activity stream. The Facebook-like functionality encourages collaboration and allows intranet users to express their ideas and opinions efficiently. Intranet users can submit a response or 'like' each particular comment. A level of moderation can be applied as intranet administrators can edit or delete replies posted by other users.
Intranet users can easily engage in conversations with links to relevant information - for example, asking for feedback on a particular document. Articles from external sources can be referenced through the inclusion of links. Teams can also collaborate and share knowledge by uploading documents, files and images.
Helping to reduce the number of internal e-mails being sent, intranet users can tag fellow colleagues in posts. Tagged colleagues will receive an automatic notification, making it easier for employees to gain answers and start discussions with particular employees. Intranet users can follow other colleagues, and lists containing employees of whom they are currently following and those employees, who are following them are displayed next to the activity stream.
