Interact Intranet, a leading provider of intranet software, today announced their latest social feature rich release, Interact Intranet 7.3. The release is perfectly timed with the recent revelation by Nielson Norman Group that the world’s best intranets are now fully embracing, encouraging and even rewarding social activity by employees.
Having an intranet with social enterprise tools can bring a number of business benefits, such as improved employee engagement, faster decision making,more effective problem solving, reduced reliance on email and greater overall productivity.
Nigel Danson, CEO & Founder of Interact Intranet says:
“It is great to see companies starting to fully embrace and realise the advantages of deploying social features successfully on their intranets. At Interact we believe social tools can bring massive competitive advantages when aligned to how people work; however on their own they’re not enough.
Interact Intranet 7.3 has been development based on what our customers said would further enhance collaboration between employees; helping to reduce group emails and enabling more effective conversations within their digital workspace, to get work done more effectively”
The new features and enhancements within Interact Intranet 7.3 make any company’s introduction or advancement into social even easier; ensuring collaboration is integrated with the way employees work.
Share and collaborate more effectively with groups of people
Intelligent @Mentioning ensures your intranet is a central place for employees to collaborate and reduces the use of email for group conversations, which can be time consuming and ineffective. Interact Intranet 7.3 now goes a step beyond connecting just individuals and content and now offers the ability to instantly @Mention departments, locations and teams into a conversation; connecting groups with similar interests to spark more purposeful social interactions.
Make collaboration easy with one click to a multilingual intranet
With ever increasing globalisation, a multilingual intranet removes the communication and collaboration barriers, which can be experienced when employees have a wide variety of different first languages. Interact Intranet 7.3 now seamlessly integrates with Google Translate to give employees the ability to comment or create discussions in their preferred language, with instant translation of all intranet content in 60+ languages.
#Tagging makes it easier to uncover conversations & content around a particular topic
#Tagging is a great way for Intranet Managers to create a horizontal architecture structure across their intranet and to improve the categorisation and grouping of content and conversations for employees. Interact Intranet 7.3 has now introduced the #Tagging of pages to allow the grouping of similar types of content. For example #presentations would uncover all presentations and conversations around that relevant #Tag in a content area or across the intranet to quickly uncover the information employees need.
Keep social activity business relevant and employee specific
Employees can uncover relevant and more compelling information that improves knowledge sharing and collaboration with Interact Timeline’s social and intelligent feature enhancements. Media rich content now displays within an employee’s timeline, such as images from galleries, to make content more interesting, instigating further collaboration with instant liking, sharing and commenting.
Flexible intranet homepages to support employee conversations
