Naples, FL (PRWEB) June 02, 2011
INgage Networks is recognized as the leading enterprise social software vendor in a new research study published by independent analyst firm Hypatia Research, “Benchmarking Social Community Platform Investments & ROI.” INgage Networks outscores all competing vendors on the attributes that drive the company’s award-winning platform: range of offering, product/service roadmap and corporate vision.
With over 300 businesses surveyed and 20 social software vendors evaluated, this comprehensive study provides organizations with the unbiased data and assessments needed to make the right social software investments.
“Our assessment is that INgage Networks is among the handful of social media platform providers—ranked as one of the top 20% in Hypatia’s Galaxy evaluations—that scored high in key attributes such as maturity of customer base, range of business functions supported, product vision and long term corporate strategy,” said Leslie Ament, Vice President of Customer Intelligence Research and co-author of the study. “Moreover, INgage Networks is one of only two vendors evaluated to provide social commerce, reporting and analytics functionality —which is critical for organizations that seek to justify enterprise investment in social platforms.”
INgage Networks is named #1 in recognition of the following characteristics attributed to top vendors:
- Most complete platforms by offering all four categories of functionality.
- A roadmap with frequent new product or feature releases and a vision of what organizations will want to do with social media in the future.
- Services that translate into several types of services - not just tech support or implementation but also strategic planning.
“What is particularly compelling about this research is that it reflects where the market has moved over the past nine months,” said Kim Patrick Kobza, President and CEO of INgage Networks. “Organizations have shifted their focus from ‘features and functions’ to a more strategic view of social software, understanding the need for an enterprise-class platform that they can rely upon to support their business today, and in the future. We are honored to be positioned as the leader and commend Hypatia for the meticulous analysis that was clearly invested in this research.”
