Our corporate social network application, Innovate, enables employees to post comments and ideas, start discussions, share information and actively engage with their colleagues. It is a platform for which multiple users within an organisation can instantly collaborate in an online corporate community - enabling you to create a social intranet.
For many organisations this collaborative community brings forth new and innovative ideas, creates an atmosphere where ideas can be grown organically, knowledge shared and improved interaction amongst employees.

Many organisations express varied views concerning the value of social networking tools on their intranet. Claromentis intranets have therefore been designed to allow organisations to choose their preferred level of social interaction. Our intranets comprise of both an intuitive interface and a comprehensive permission system, enabling system administrators to allocate the appropriate social networking experience to a particular department or individual user.
Each scenario can be piloted to a defined set of users – for example according to job role and location. Organisations can therefore make informed decisions based on user engagement.
Administrators can control via permissions which channels are available to which users, thus guiding the topics and facilitating the relevant expertise to be available where needed. Information can be made available to people within certain departments – therefore channelling relevant information to the right people.
Users can ‘like’ comments and post comments into various channels. Facebook-like functionality encourages collaboration and allows users to express their ideas and opinions efficiently. The ability to respond and provide feedback to a posted comment encourages ideas and suggestions to be voiced and developed. The ability to ‘like’ a comment positively reinforces the idea or comment by colleagues.
Users can easily engage in conversations with links to relevant information – for example asking for feedback on a particular design or 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.
Users can follow colleagues that are of particular interest to them and also tag them in conversations and comments. Tagging makes it easier for employees to gain answers and start discussion with specific users. This cuts down on the amount of emails sent to fellow colleagues.
