“With MindTouch, we had immediate value and were able to quickly create and iterate custom applications that serve the complex and evolving needs of our constituents. It’s a great platform for a collaboration laboratory.”
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 11, 2010
MindTouch, the company that transforms great work into strategic content, today announced that it has been chosen as part of the strategic platform responsible for powering the Dachis Group’s Collaboratory. MindTouch was chosen based on the value, platform architecture, flexibility and extensibility in managing Social Business content.
The Dachis Group Collaboratory sets the high water mark for experimenting and operationalizing social business deployments. It is an internal ‘collaboration laboratory’, which connects enterprise silos, provides client services and best practices documentation, project and initiative management capabilities, a CRM implementation, social media monitoring, and more. Dachis architects and developers delivered the initial phase of the Collaboratory in just over two months time and continue to innovate with the rapid application development capabilities of MindTouch.
“With the Collaboratory, Dachis Group continues to prove that they are the thought leaders in social business design and implementation,” said Aaron Fulkerson, Founder and CEO of MindTouch. “It’s an outstanding example of innovation in the Enterprise 2.0 space, and we’re pleased to be delivering part of the enabling technology. A company is made by its customers and I’m excited that MindTouch is used in the industry’s most innovative collaboration initiatives.”
“Collaboration technologies either deliver specialized point applications, which are difficult to extend and integrate or monolithic platforms that are hard to use and expensive to develop on,” said Bryan Menell, Collaboratory Director, Dachis Group. “With MindTouch, we had immediate value and were able to quickly create and iterate custom applications that serve the complex and evolving needs of our constituents. It’s a great platform for a collaboration laboratory.”
