SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2013) - Gartner Portals, Content and Collaboration Summit -- Axceler®, a leader in enterprise collaboration governance, administration and migration solutions, today announced the pre-release of ViewPoint Enterprise, a customizable dashboard that provides visibility into enterprise social networks, such as Yammer, SharePoint, Box, Jive, and Chatter. With more than 75 percent of businesses expected to adopt an enterprise social network in 2013, ViewPoint Enterprise is the only solution that shows a unified view of an entire organization's collaboration platform adoption and engagement rates in one view, empowering them to quickly understand the condition of employee collaboration and make changes to increase ROI and minimize risk. Axceler will be demonstrating ViewPoint Enterprise at Gartner's Portals, Content and Collaboration Summit April 29-May 1 in San Diego, CA at Booth #400.
With the rising adoption of enterprise social networks to increase innovation, both IT and business managers have no means of monitoring, analyzing or reporting on the effectiveness of these collaborations tools, their adoption, or impact. Axceler's ViewPoint Enterprise, which currently offers support for Yammer and will support additional platforms throughout the year, gives organizations the visibility and detailed analytics to compare how employees use each platform, the topics that are driving conversations, the number of users who have adopted the platforms, as well as the most influential users in the organization.
"Many businesses are still figuring out not only how to efficiently work on social collaboration platforms, but also the platforms that are helping the business achieve its goals," said Jim Lundy, founder and CEO of Aragon Research. "As enterprises identify their collaboration platform mix, ViewPoint Enterprise simplifies how businesses track the success of each platform and identify what's working or not working in order to understand the trends, users and topics that are driving valuable engagement and collaboration within and across the enterprise."
Axceler's ViewPoint Enterprise pre-release includes the following features:
- Thorough understanding of user adoption - shows employee adoption within the Yammer social collaboration platform and the total users that belong to several collaboration platforms over a specific period of time
- Tracks level of platform engagement - allows users to view the most active and least active groups within Yammer, including the volume of posts, how many files were shared and the total number of likes and shares within the group
"Businesses understand the value of collaboration platforms, but it's proven very difficult to validate the investment and ensure user adoption," said Michael Alden, CEO of Axceler. "As more businesses deploy collaboration platforms like Yammer, enterprises need an easy way to see and compare success across any platform as well as justify the investment. With the detailed insight our ViewPoint Enterprise solution provides, businesses can quickly view the company's social collaboration activity and identify exactly what content and internal support is needed to improve and encourage collaboration adoption and engagement across the business."
A free pre-release version, which currently supports Yammer, is now available at www.axceler.io or www.practicesafecollaboration.com. General availability of the product, which will be delivered as a SaaS offering, is planned for September. For more information, please visit: http://www.axceler.com/
