QUEsocial is Built in Chicago’s Start-up of Month because it, in a very short time, has demonstrated the type of vision, leadership and wherewithal it takes to succeed
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
QUEsocial, the first social business platform that extends beyond marketing and outside the firewall to help companies and employees convert their social activity into measurable business outcomes, was today named the November 2012 Start-up of the Month by Built in Chicago. The recognition comes just three months after the official launch of QUEsocial and builds upon the company’s early momentum. QUEsocial has quickly gained traction with national staffing firms, consulting firms and organizations with large, distributed sales forces, and has established partnership networks that will deliver QUEsocial to nearly ten thousand businesses. Built in Chicago is the city’s engine for connecting, educating and promoting the digital community throughout Chicagoland.
“QUEsocial is Built in Chicago’s Start-up of Month because it, in a very short time, has demonstrated the type of vision, leadership and wherewithal it takes to succeed,” said Maria Christopoulos Katris, President, Built in Chicago. “QUEsocial’s social business platform is well positioned to address the growing demand by companies for assistance in realizing measurable value from their social media activities. We’re thrilled to have QUEsocial in Chicago’s dynamic start-up community.”
QUEsocial’s SaaS-based platform is specifically designed to support the different business needs and uses of social media across sales, recruiting, customer service, HR and product development. QUEsocial makes it easy, scalable and sustainable for employees to tap into, grow and harness their existing social networks as an every day work tool. The platform integrates:
- e-learning that teaches sales, recruiting, customer service and product marketing how to effectively use social channels in their work
- content delivered to employee fingertips that can be easily shared to social networks – at the click of a link
- motivation through gamification to drive social activity conversion into business outcomes
- measurement/analytics for work groups and individuals
“Built in Chicago is a tremendous asset to Chicago and the vibrant, innovative community of start-ups that call the city home,” said Patrick Rooney, CEO of QUEsocial. “We are honored to be recognized as Start-up of the Month and thank the Built in Chicago team for their support and the opportunity to introduce QUEsocial’s social business platform to its extensive following.”
While other social media tools focus on marketing or internal collaboration – both important and useful applications of social media – QUEsocial is focused on helping employees tap into and harness existing social networks such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook as an effective every day work tool.
QUEsocial was developed for two primary audiences:
- organizations with large distributed work forces that struggle with leveraging social media effectively across the organization, taking advantage of the value of efficiently distributing branded content, sharing best practices across employee populations and driving consistent adoption that leads to measurable business outcomes, and
- Small and midsize businesses (SMB) that are continuously looking for ways to operate more effectively and efficiently.
QUEsocial provides a “hard ROI” that to date has been elusive to marketing by directly linking social activity with business results. It’s flexible SaaS platform has open APIs that provide for integration into many of the leading customer relationship management software (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), learning management systems and other enterprise applications.
