The National e-Governance Division (under the Government of India) accelerates internal employee collaboration with Communifire social business software
(San Diego, CA, USA) – March 18, 2012 – Axero Solutions, an expert in social community software for the enterprise, announced that the National e-Governance Division (NeGD), an autonomous business division within Media Labs Asia, under the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, Government of India, has selected Communifire as their preferred business collaboration tool for internal employee collaboration.
“When we started thinking about Knowledge Management for our projects, we decided to target the tacit knowledge of employees first by using an enterprise collaboration application. Our focus was on organized knowledge sharing and information management by cross departmental collaboration,” said Neelmony Pannu, a Program & Knowledge Management Consultant working at NeGD. “Communifire, with its unique concept of spaces, an interactive user interface and nominal pricing and excellent customer support was preferred over other options.”
Communifie’s SaaS deployment means that NeGD employees can obtain business value from the software delivered as a cloud service, while retaining the control they would get from running the platform themselves – but without any investment in the setup, hardware, resources and overhead that comes with managing the application directly.
“Learning is most powerful when it occurs in context, and we at Axero believe that traditional training, while valuable, should not be the only mode of education and collaboration in corporates. Communifire promotes organized sharing and promotes the importance of peer groups by leveraging the power of tools like micro-blogging, forums, wikis and “spaces”, where increased engagement with the shared content improves retention and shortens knowledge transfer”, says Tim Eisenhauer, Managing Partner at Axero.
Axero Solution’s Communifire combines every type of collaboration and community tool needed by an organization making it easy for people to work together. Customizable user profiles, micro-blogging, activity feeds, groups & spaces, discussion forums, file & document sharing, content publishing, notifications, and events management calendar are some of its core features.
