New Support Creates the First Multi-Platform Governance Solution for Collaboration Platforms, Offers Visibility into Platform Adoption, Activity and Influential Users

 

Woburn, MA – August 12 –Axceler®, a leader in enterprise collaboration governance, administration and migration solutions, today announced the addition of SharePoint to ViewPoint Enterprise, creating the industry’s first multi-platform governance solution for enterprise social networks (ESN). With support for Yammer and SharePoint, ViewPoint Enterprise is a dashboard that offers a unified view of the activity, adoption and influence across both collaboration platforms, giving businesses a detailed understanding of how their employees are using both platforms, and ensures the collaboration investments are positively impacting the business.      

A recent report by the McKinsey Global Institute, found a fully implemented and adopted social technology can raise production and collaboration by 20 to 25 percent. Axceler’s ViewPoint Enterprise with support for two leading ESNs, SharePoint and Yammer, gives businesses both the flexibility to implement an ESN that best fits their needs. With the ViewPoint Enterprise dashboard, organizations gain the visibility and control to ensure all platforms are being used efficiently, remain compliant and keep business information secure.

In addition to supporting SharePoint, ViewPoint Enterprise offers two new features, including insight into the most influential users displayed in an easy-to-use chart. By being able to quickly visualize platform adoption, volume of activity and now specific influencers on SharePoint and Yammer, ViewPoint Enterprise offers a single view of the factors affecting collaboration within the organization.

“Collaboration is becoming a prominent part of important business exchanges and businesses are taking note, as demonstrated by the recent news of Yammer now being positioned as Microsoft’s social enterprise network. However it’s still critical to be able to showcase a solid ROI,” said Donna Shaw, principal product manager, Axceler. “With businesses and their employees often using multiple collaboration platforms, it’s inevitable that each of the communities will become increasingly complex. By providing a unified view of all activities, the ViewPoint Enterprise platform will help provide the necessary information to allow organizations to make business critical decisions, quickly.”

Axceler’s ViewPoint Enterprise with support for Yammer and SharePoint helps organizations understand:

  • Influence and engagement – ViewPoint Enterprise shows the most influential employees on each platform the elements that make up their influence including the number of posts, followers and likes received as well as their level of engagement such as posts replied to, shared or published.
  • Activity – With the dashboard, business users and IT can quickly see which groups are being effective collaborators, visualize the volume of posts, files published and corresponding likes.
  • Adoption – ViewPoint Enterprise allows businesses and IT to see how each collaboration platform is performing, compare employee adoption of each platform and the total users that belong to several platforms over a specific period of time.

Axceler is demonstrating ViewPoint Enterprise at Booth 402 at SPTechCon in Boston. A free pre-release version of ViewPoint Enterprise is available at www.axceler.io. General availability of the product, which will be delivered as a SaaS offering, is planned for October 1st.
