CONTENS' Social Workplace combines all advantages of modern online networks, offering your company's employees tried and tested functions that facilitate communication and improve mutual collaboration. Boasting an activity feed, profile administration, communication functions and integrated document management, the Social Workplace combines the top features of popular social networking sites for the efficient use within your company.
As central element of the Social Workplace, the activity feed informs a company's employees about internal news, updates, profile changes and forum articles. Employees can quickly and easily inform their colleagues on current events, ask questions, and provide documents – just like on popular social networking sites. Content can be filtered according to numerous criteria so that employees are only shown the relevant information.
In addition to the master data, which may be integrated from existing systems, employees can also give information on their fields of expertise, professional experience or language skills. At the same time, profiles can reflect company-specific criteria, such as internal further training or regional knowledge. All content may be shared with personal contacts, certain groups or other degrees of separation. As a result, the profiles grow together, forming an invaluable pool of company knowledge.
A key functionality of CONTENS' Social Workplace is that it enables the quick and easy provision of files, photos and videos within an organization. Documents can be pulled into the browser via drag & drop and are then automatically uploaded. Using directories and tags, files can be structured according to personal requirements and shared with individual users and groups. Users can bookmark, comment on and rate the shared files.
In order to facilitate access to content for employees, CONTENS' Social Workplace provides a high-powered search function. The output of search results is sorted by content areas, such as messages, documents, forums, and specific social objects, e.g. products of the company. Persons are sorted according to whether they are direct or indirect contacts. Search settings can be saved so that users are automatically informed about new hits.
The Social Workplace is integrated seamlessly into CONTENS' content management technology. It allows both editorial content of an intranet and content generated by the employees to be managed via the CONTENS browser backend. In addition, the CONTENS CMS offers workflows, form generators, metadata management, rights allocation, multilingualism, and the administration of integrated applications.
