For companies of all sizes in Southwest Florida and beyond looking to bring social networking into their place of business, Microsoft may have just what you’re looking for.
The tech giant is marketing its Yammer internal networking program to enterprises big and small as a way for employees to be social on the job but having it focused on business-related matters. Yammer offers a way for teams to be productive beyond traditional social media’s reliance on comments on a friend’s site, posting status updates or retweeting on Twitter.
CRS Technology Consultants understands you may find Yammer helpful for things like:
• Company collaboration
• File sharing
• Knowledge exchange
• Teamwork efficiency
While these goals may be accomplished with other platforms, Yammer keeps it all in-house. Plus, a number of filters allow business owners to decide who gets access to what. For instance, you may decide to open your entire network to employees and vendors. Or allow just limited access to certain portions of it to both groups. You decide.
The idea is to get team members to share project work, information and files within the corporate structure to help move the business forward while keeping them engaged. Think of it as a way to bring the useful aspects of social media into the workplace for employees to share and connect at work in a similar manner to what they are already doing on their own time on their own social media sites.
Yammer can also be used strictly as an internal social network, encouraging employees to keep their work-related comments, suggestions and questions in-house instead of posting on Facebook or Google+ .
This business social network platform is web-based, so no need to share files by email, and it is designed for any platform from desktop to tablet. Yammer is also integrated into SharePoint and Office 365.
There are about 8 million Yammers online, most of them using the free version, according to a CNNMoney. See the article at: http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2013/06/25/was-yammer-worth-1-2-billion/
