Length:  17 pages

Extending social capabilities across your company can improve both individual and team productivity. With online communities, information is made transparent and corporate knowledge is bubbled up to where it can be used - no longer buried in email inboxes, hard drives or isolated in silos. This whitepaper explores the business value that an online community can provide to specific departmental teams by exploring some common collaboration issues that each may face. Discover real life examples that illustrate the benefits of business social software, including: making connections to improve employee productivity between teams and departments; creating a knowledge base to align sales with marketing to close more deals; and bringing products to market faster by reducing project cycles, duplicate efforts and overall costs.
