Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 4, 2010
MangoSpring (http://www.mangospring.com), the leading provider of hosted hyper-collaboration services, today announced the availability of free Microblogging and Instant Messaging modules to its Engage platform (http://www.engagesmart.com). Employees can now broadly collaborate on everyday tasks through microblogging and seamlessly transition to private IM conversations with a single click. Teammates can easily discuss topics in real-time and contribute to decisions without the flood of email. Leaders can follow discussion progress and immediately provide feedback to the entire team using microblogging or to specific employees over instant messaging.
“Businesses from small to large struggle with effective collaboration because of their geographically dispersed workforce. However, today there is a comprehensive and simple solution that seamlessly offers the employee the right tool for the right task,” said MangoSpring CEO Anup Kejriwal. “By integrating Microblogging with Instant Messaging, we are giving businesses a substantial collaboration base to improve their productivity and make better decisions. “
Microblogging is not a replacement for email or IM; it is a unique messaging paradigm that must be integrated with current collaboration tools to fully realize daily business productivity gains. While companies can choose from multiple siloed Microblogging and Instant Messaging solutions, none of them offer the multiplicative effect that an integrated solution provides. Engage seamlessly combines microblogging with enterprise-grade Instant Messaging to enable open, immediate and effective collaboration.
MangoSpring believes in a holistic spectrum of collaboration tools. The free Microblogging and Instant Messaging modules are the foundation of the Engage collaboration platform. These modules also seamlessly integrate with premium Engage modules including document sharing, Idea life cycle, project management, HR 2.0, and more. In addition, Engage allows for extended teams including external partners and customers to participate and collaborate. This can be most useful for organizations or charities whose members are not behind the same firewall but still need to collaborate.
Engage is available in two Software as a Service (SaaS) deployment options: shared and private. Shared Cloud networks are hosted on MangoSpring servers in a telco class data center. Private Cloud networks are also hosted on MangoSpring servers for customers who need VPN access, higher security and a higher service level agreement (SLA). In addition, Engage is available as an on-premise solution for customers wishing to deploy Engage alongside their other IT systems.
