Companies are using our product for much more than just an Intranet. Wikis and Blogs are being created, and with the latest version, Social Networks can now be built inside Noodle.
(PRWEB) September 16, 2008
Vialect, a leading provider of business collaboration & social-networking software, announced today the release of Noodle.
Use your Noodle!
"The name change is a result of product evolution" says founder Tim Dorey. "Companies are using our product for much more than just an Intranet. Wikis and Blogs are being created, and with the latest version, Social Networks can now be built inside Noodle."
What's your corporate wisdom?
One of the most exciting new features added is the Corporate Wisdom feature. Many collaboration and intranet projects fail due to inactivity. This inactivity is the result of outdated information, hard to use tools and employees not being encouraged to review and contribute to the overall success of the project. Noodle solves this problem by monitoring the Corporate Wisdom of each employee.
Corporate Wisdom is calculated by the total amount of items an employee reviews and the total amount of items the employee creates. These numbers are then added together and compared to the total site content to produce that user's Corporate Wisdom "rating". Corporate Wisdom also fluctuates as new content is added to the site.
Find people with expertise
Also new with Noodle is the enhanced People section that displays the names and photos of all site members. This page has four different views so users can sort people based on group, expertise, status update and wisdom level.
What are you working on?
Another new enhancement is the social-networking feature, What are you working on?. Each user can update their status and notify coworkers what they are currently working on. These updates can then be shared with fellow team members to facilitate corporate unity.
Noodle is available in both an online service (SaaS) or a local software installation. Noodle can be installed on both Windows and Linux, and supports Microsoft SQL, Oracle and PostgreSQL databases. Free demos are available from the Vialect website.
Vialect will be launching Noodle at the KMworld & Intranets Conference in San Jose, California on September 23. Demonstrations of the new Corporate Social-Networking features will be presented at Booth 234 at the show. For more information, or a trial version of Noodle, visit http://www.vialect.com.
