Social Intranet for Collaborative Teams
Incentive is a next-generation social intranet that combines all the features your team needs to be more efficient, capture team knowledge, have fun at work and instantly locate and act on everything you need toGet Stuff Done. Together.
Private and group chats. Enterprise File Sharing. Document Collaboration. Video Conferencing. Blogs. Wikis. Microblogging. Oh yeah, did we mention integrations, including SharePoint, Dropbox and more? Say goodbye to point solutions and adopt one searchable social intranet platform that combines, andsecures, everything you and your team need to get your jobs done. And, if youre not ready to say goodbye to your existing services, simply integrate with one click.
Todays reality when collaborating
No cross over search capability need to go to each service to search for files, conversations and resources.Isolated
Multiple services and apps required to achieve a complete collaboration experience.Spread out
Each service has its own user interface & sign in procedure resulting in major thresholds. No unity
Working across several services means duplicate work such as inviting users, setting up groups, permissions, following people, etc and requires repetitive maintenance.Out of syncData, information, conversations & knowledge scattered around in different services and standards. Compliance, backup and access difficulties as a result.Defragmented
Millennials will soon comprise most of the workforce, but, 41 percent of them say they prefer to communicate electronically rather than face-to-face or even over the telephone. Adopting enterprise social collaboration technology can help kill two birds with one stone satisfy the technology user experiences of the evolving workforce and provide the tools that can help eliminate the need for face-to-face meetings.

Maybe youve spent a great deal of money on SharePoint or another technology, trained all of your employees on the new interface or simply just cant part ways?Whatever platforms and tools youre currently using they can always be improved with a layer of social collaboration. Employees are increasingly expecting social and collaborative work environments and tools that dont deliver hinder employee productivity.
