“True collaboration is accomplished in the context of the applications, data and people you work with – it’s an information fabric that weaves throughout your business."

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 5, 2010

MindTouch, the company that transforms great work into strategic content, today announced the immediate availability of MindTouch Social Intranet with Workforce by Dachis Group. This jointly developed solution is an enterprise-ready, turn-key intranet solution that replaces online collaboration silos with a purpose-built solution that brings teams, applications and systems together to help your organizations accomplish more.

The days of stagnant intranets, under-utilized collaboration platforms and outdated information are over. This solution allows your users to easily connect your software, systems and people to create a vibrant, real-time information fabric – an intranet your users will adopt and utilize.

“We are thrilled to begin joint delivery of the most extensible and effective social intranet on the market,” said Aaron Fulkerson, Founder and CEO of MindTouch. “True collaboration is accomplished in the context of the applications, data and people you work with – it’s an information fabric that weaves throughout your business. This solution is the first social intranet to bake that holistic and extensible approach into the product itself, and is based on a proven, real-world implementation at Dachis Group.”

The MindTouch Social Intranet with Workforce by Dachis Group was developed based on Dachis Group’s implementation of the MindTouch platform and the two firms related partnership. MindTouch and Dachis Group have since teamed up to bring this product to market and deliver a turn-key solution that has been conceived of, developed and fine-tuned in a real-world social business environment.

“We are excited to be partnering with MindTouch as they deliver this product,” said Jeff Dachis, founder and CEO of Dachis Group. “This innovative solution was influenced by our own adoption and use of the MindTouch platform and Dachis Group’s Social Business Design thinking along with the extensive workforce collaboration expertise at MindTouch to provide a turn-key solution that delivers immediate and measurable business value.”
