New social business platform to jump start employee collaboration

Axel Wessendorf, CEO, United Planet

Think of Intrexx Share as a central working interface for the entire company, driving information and knowledge sharing.

United Planet (http://www.unitedplanet.com), one of the leading developers of enterprise portal software in Europe, has developed a new social business platform called Intrexx Share which it expects to drive employee collaboration and revitalise the role of the intranet as an internal company communications network.

United Planet’s CEO, Axel Wessendorf, explains: “The intranet is facing real crisis. Instead of providing fast and transparent access to competitive and business critical information, its role within many organisations has been relegated to that of a filing cabinet. Changes in working patterns and the rise of enterprise mobility demands that the intranet reinvents itself and offers a new way for employees to work together.”

Intrexx Share is intended to provide organisations with a social business platform that offers an alternative to time-consuming meetings and unnecessary emails and incorporates the most useful elements from the social media world. News, documents, images and videos are shared with co-workers in a quick and transparent way via newsfeed. Each new message can be commented on, tracked and shared quickly and transparently to the required recipients. Intrexx Share can also be accessed via smartphones and tablets, so it doesn’t matter whether employees are in the office or in the field.

Intrexx Share goes a decisive step further than other social business solutions in the market. Employees not only receive messages from colleagues, it also provides updates and the latest information from existing business applications - such as CRM, ERP, BI and Exchange – via the newsfeed to support the decision making process.

Wessendorf adds: “What this means for employees is that they will finally have direct access to all the key information they need to do their job efficiently and effectively. For example, alerts about the expiry of key contracts will be automatically sent to the appropriate employee for action and users can respond to data from the ERP system without having to use a separate application to view or amend documents. Think of Intrexx Share as a central working interface for the entire company, driving information and knowledge sharing.”

Intrexx Share is particularly useful for project teams who will benefit from the virtual team rooms provided for information exchange and project related discussions. The ability to share and develop ideas and brainstorm project solutions as a group – irrespective of location and time – will be valuable for companies in a variety of industries.

“The ability to guarantee information security is naturally a prime concern and we are confident that Intrexx Share will encourage collaboration where other social business solutions have not been successful,” said Wessendorf. “We have ensured that exchange of information via Intrexx Share is fully secure by stipulating that data is located on protected company servers, and not in the cloud.”

Intrexx Share can be installed in one working day and is available from 980 euros. For further details, visit: http://www.unitedplanet.com/en/intrexx-share.
