You’re looking for a smarter way to manage communication and organize information so your company’s employees can be more productive and better informed. They’re spending too much time looking for the latest version of a file, too much time sifting through emails, too much time in meetings, and too much time answering the same questions over and over again. Communifire’s ASP.NET social intranet and CMS solution connects people with each other and the information and corporate news they need to do their job and work together as a single unified team.
Communifire gives your employees powerful tools to work with people, data, and documents.
In Communifire, most work and collaboration is done Spaces, sub-communities that have their own membership, apps that you can turn and off, and independent rules and permissions.
You can create Spaces for your intranet, company departments, projects, customers, interest groups, or anything else you want to gather around. All the collaboration, conversations, and content are organized in your Spaces, easy to find whenever they are needed.
Publish company wide or department specific news and reference material. Instantly communicate with others in real-time. Bring entire groups together with group messaging.
Manage projects, tasks, teams, and people. Form teams around topics of interest and individual projects. Work with people inside and outside your business – all in one place.
Find experts. Build relationships. Identify key people with the right knowledge and shared interests. Give everyone a face and a voice. Make everything more personal and more human.
The Communifire ASP.NET Social Intranet gets people to the news and information they need quickly.
Since content, resources and files are created and shared collaboratively the result is a more organic and natural organization of information, content is then available where it makes sense for people to find later.
Files for a particular project are in the project space, human resources forms are in the human resources space, information about software systems are in the IT space alongside the case tracker for individual issues, etc.
Information is where people need it and expect to find it, not dictated by a need to control it because Communifire’s granular permissions prevent information from getting into the wrong hands.
Liberated from department silos, people join groups and spaces related to the work they are doing. Keeping up with a diverse set of teams is easy within Communifire’s ASP.NET Social Intranet because all the updates come directly to each individual in personalized news feeds.
No one need constantly visit their spaces to find all the new content and edits and comments on existing content, a single page summarizes activity in all the spaces they are involved in.
Corporate news gets delivered within your personalized activity stream so you can stay in touch with the big picture.
Communifire’s ASP.NET Social Intranet gives you unprecendented control over how information is presented and how employees interact with the website.
This is most evident than on the homepage. While spaces and workspaces give you everything you need to know about a project, and each user’s profile page provides updates on the groups and people they are engaged with, the homepage presents the big picture.
You can organize and present news from different departments in the company alongside lists of top-rated content and introductions to new employees.
You can make a homepage worth visiting — so people get a strong overview of the big picture and what others are doing in the organization.
Organize your schedule and keep track of meetings and important dates. Everyone gets their own personal calendar – and you can create as many shared calendars as you need.
Communifire calendars are very similar to Outlook and Google Calendars, making it quick and easy to get everyone on board. Share your entire calendar or invite people to individual events.
Setup reminders and get notified by email and in your notifications. Never again will you miss an important date or meeting.
Create recurring events to schedule and plan meetings in advance. Everyone will know what’s going on, what they have to attend, and what’s going to happen next.
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.
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 social intranet 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.
Go far beyond changing the logo and choosing between a variety of templates. With a basic understanding of CSS you can dramatically change the look and feel of your intranet to create a seamless interface with your other websites — or simply to provide a unique user experience.
With a basic understanding of HTML, you can go even further, easily moving items around on a page to quickly (in a matter of hours) make something completely unrecognizable from the Communifire that you install in 2 minutes.
With a basic understanding C#, all limitations fall away. You can add new apps to the platform, bring in updates from other systems to populate the activity stream or notifications, or use Communifire’s broad range of applications and features in new and creative ways.
