MicroLink Launches DiscoverPoint, Leading-Edge Information Discovery and Enterprise Social Networking Solution Within SharePoint

DiscoverPoint Technology Understands User Interests to Contextually Match Information and Colleagues and Reduces Reliance on 'Manual' User Requests

VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - November 3, 2009) - MicroLink, LLC today announced the launch of DiscoverPoint, a software solution that automatically delivers relevant content, connects subject matter experts, and enables secure enterprise social networking in a SharePoint environment. DiscoverPoint helps organizations with vast amounts of information and a heavy reliance on subject matter experts to realize productivity efficiencies by improving information retrieval and enabling company-wide collaboration and communities of interest.

DiscoverPoint eases the burden of manually 'searching' for information and expertise by aggregating information from multiple systems across the enterprise and automatically delivering the results within a single SharePoint interface. Utilizing advanced user/data analysis techniques, DiscoverPoint builds an understanding of each user's individual areas of expertise and interests based on his activity, thus eliminating reliance on manual tracking of user skill areas and assignments, as required by other available solutions. The result is that knowledge workers invest less time in looking for information and people, and more time applying their particular subject matter expertise.

"As organizations struggle to utilize and manage information from internal and external sources, DiscoverPoint provides a secure way to capture and share valuable knowledge. More importantly, it helps organizations to best utilize their internal expertise for improved collaboration and communication, providing greater efficiency and increased quality of service," explains David Truitt, President and CEO of MicroLink. This collaboration benefit is further surfaced through the ability to establish communities of expertise and facilitating improved real time communications, reducing redundancy of efforts and thereby improving performance, while reducing costs.

DiscoverPoint filters structured and unstructured documents and content including social postings like blogs and wikis. With familiar social networking features like walls, suggestions and activities, DiscoverPoint creates a secure, robust internal social networking environment that is also capable of integrating content from popular external sites like Facebook and Twitter.

"Organizations will be able to capture and leverage valuable corporate information with the secure internal networking and collaboration space that DiscoverPoint's enterprise social networking delivers," says Truitt. "By optionally pulling in external postings from sites like Facebook and Twitter, employees will also have a highly personalized space, spending less time at those external sites and more time on their internal portals."
