Yammer Integrates With Microsoft Dynamics

Expands Partner Ecosystem With Five Additional New Integrations

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 24, 2012) - Yammer, Inc., the leading provider of Enterprise Social Networks, today announced an integration with Microsoft Dynamics, which enables updates from the CRM solution to appear as activity stories in the Yammer Ticker. Dynamics users who have installed the plug-in can follow important records such as accounts, campaigns and opportunities. When changes to these records occur, an activity story describing the event is published in Ticker in real-time. For example, when a sales rep closes a deal, a Dynamics activity story announcing the win is surfaced in Ticker, notifying managers as it happens.

Universal Search
Data from Dynamics will also appear in Universal Search, a comprehensive search engine that allows users to find information in Yammer as well as applications integrated into Yammer. Universal Search works with both cloud and behind the firewall applications, and furthers Yammer's strategy to be the social layer across all business applications.

Additional Integration Partners
The following five cloud software providers also now integrate with Yammer:

  • Perks.com -- The full-service incentive and recognition solution publishes activity stories in Ticker when users create nominations and recognitions such as employee of the month or going above and beyond.
  • Sciforma -- The project and portfolio management solution publishes updates when an employee creates, updates or completes a project.
  • Senexx -- The intelligence engine automatically routes questions to experts and relevant groups on Yammer and syncs user profiles with LinkedIn.
  • UpMo -- The social talent engine encourages internal upward mobility by feeding updates when an employee is recommended for a job or changes their reputation score.
  • UserVoice -- The easy-to-use customer service solution allows customer and internal feedback (ideas, comments, votes) and customer support kudos to appear as activity stories in Ticker.

"By continuing to integrate with the best-in-class enterprise applications employees rely on to get work done, Yammer is delivering on its vision to be the social layer across all systems of record," said David Sacks, CEO, Yammer.
