Open a channel for people to communicate and encourage the sharing of ideas and opinions. Approval workflows are available to make sure nothing gets out that doesn’t fit your brand. Now there’s no reason to hold people back.
Communifire provides a robust discussion forums platform for providing online customer support. It includes everything you’d expect. Forum groups, topics, threads, and comments.
Mark comments as “the answer” to help your customer find it quick. Vote answers up or down like StackOverflow. Tag, share, and like options are also included.
A full administration section is provided so you can manage everything you need to. Profanity filters, moderation, pruning, it’s all there for you. And it’s easy to use with little learning curve.
Forget about shared network drives and FTP. Upload and manage your files in Communifire. Word docs, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, PDF’s, images – Communifire handles them all.
Full search capabilities based on the Lucene Search Engine. Communifire is even smart enough to search the content inside MS Office and Open Office documents.
Files and documents become collaborative with comments, liking, and ratings. Automatic versioning and robust permissions are built in. Preview files and documents before downloading using the file viewer. And share them quickly and easily with others.
Many customers prefer to find information themselves instead of having to ask you for it.
Using the Communifire ASP.NET customer support system, you build out a knowledge base for customers to access using wikis, photos, videos and other files.
You can control who has access to it. Invite customers, prospects, partners, and anyone else you want. You can even expose some content to people who are not logged in.
Providing valuable resources to customers on your website is also a great way to expose them to your news and opinions through articles and blogs published in your community. These, in turn, can be exposed publicly, picked up by search engines and bring in new prospects to you site.
Once you’ve connected people to each other and the information they need, the next logical step is to connect people to information and updates from your other applications as well.
This might be with such simple connections as links to other systems, Active Directory integration and single sign-on (SSO). Or more sophisticated integrations that bring systems into the Communifire user interface, delivering news from other websites into users activity streams, notifications, and spaces, while adding Communifire’s social functionality (comments, likes, ratings) to “apps” from your other systems.
Integrating with the Communifire social platform makes your other applications social, to increase sharing and collaboration all within a single ecosystem.
Communifire is an ASP.NET content management framework. It has incredible power to change how people share and discover information in your organization, while offering incredible flexibility to solve countless other challenges in a single solution.
