Leverage Software, the industry leader in on-demand enterprise social networks, today announced today it had released a new version of its award-winning software platform. The new version includes a significant set of new functionality, including:
- Categories, a new set of extensible navigation features which enable members to easily discover new community groups through a flexible and customizable information hierarchy.
- Custom Pages, which provides customers with a way to further extend and integrate their online communities directly into other web portals. By integrating these with Leverage Software's community widget toolkit and extensive web service APIs, customers can extend their social networks and create highly-customized community-driven pages.
- Real-Time Poll Improvements, which help customers quickly solicit feedback from community members and report on that feedback in real-time.
In parallel, Leverage Software also announced its beta release of Leverage Mobile, a set of features designed to help individuals connect with one another directly from their iPhone, Blackberry, or other mobile device.
"Now, more than ever, the business world is mobile, social, and real-time," said Joseph Kleinschmidt, CTO and co-founder of Leverage Software. "In our personal lives, so many of us live in our iPhones, connect with one another through social networks like Facebook, and retrive real-time information from places like Twitter -- so it's natural for businesses to look for ways to enable their employees to communicate that way in their work lives as well. We are continually evolving our social networking platform to help our customers do just that."
Leverage Software's enterprise social networking platform is used by innovative companies to help drive employee engagement, spark cross-team idea-sharing and innovation, and provide a two-way social media channel for corporate communication. The company's 100% Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery model makes all features in this release availabe immediately to existing customers. The Leverage Community Platform powers social networks for such innovative organizations as The Home Depot, Ingram Micro, St. Jude Medical, Stanford University, Microsoft, and hundreds more.
