Communifire social networking platform stimulates connection, dialogue, and consultation within the geographically distributed professional organization.
(San Diego, CA, USA) – August 5, 2010 – The Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia (ICAA) has selected the Communifire social networking platform to power the community section of its website. The network will effectively connect 50,000 members of the ICAA organization who are widely dispersed throughout the Australian continent.
“Communifire is a great match for any organization whose members want to work together toward shared goals,” explains Tim Eisenhauer, Axero Solutions Co-Founder and Managing Partner. “The ICAA will be creating a unique environment for their members to learn from and share with each other, a great resource for professionals and a great tool to bring new people into the profession.”
The ICAA will be adding a new section to their website called “myCommunity” which will be built on Communifire. Because of the platform’s flexibility they will be able to create a seamless experience for members and the public. The new section will stimulate connection, dialogue, and consultation within the geographically distributed group.
The ICAA will leverage the platform to encourage members to network professionally and to stimulate educational dialog and critical thinking. The myCommunity network will include blogs and forums, for example, where registered members can ask questions, receive expert answers, and even promote mentoring initiatives for the accounting community. The ICAA also plans on creating different sub-communities for their members, including geographical sub-communities and ones around topics of interest. Much of this content will also be available to non-members as a way to encourage people to join the organization.
