Socialtext Delivers Enterprise Microblogging and People Search For SharePoint

SocialText announced today a major upgrade to SocialPoint, its connector that enables customers to integrate its enterprise social software solution with Microsoft SharePoint. This new release of SocialPoint helps customers take advantage of the real-time messaging and people profiles of Socialtext when they are working in SharePoint.

“We want to make sure it’s easy for people to get the most from both platforms to maximize their productivity and serve their customers better.”

The SocialPoint upgrade, which will work in both SharePoint 2010 and 2007, includes:

  • Enterprise microblogging in SharePoint — Socialtext customers count on Socialtext Signals, an enterprise microblogging platform as a way to keep colleagues and teams highly synchronized by sharing short messages about projects and strategy. Now, people can post and view Socialtext Signals from right inside SharePoint.

  • Search the people directory from within SharePoint — Customers use Socialtext People as their Social Directort, with rich profiles that show a person’s photo, skills, and latest activities, in addition to contact information. Now, people can search their Socialtext People directory from right inside SharePoint.

Socialtext was the first enterprise social software company to integrate its platform with SharePoint, with the release of SocialPoint, which enables customers to use Socialtext online workspaces (wikis) from the SharePoint interface.

“This SocialPoint upgrade was a direct response to our enterprise customers who rely on Socialtext to connect their people and drive new business opportunities, but also depend on SharePoint for existing workflows and document management processes,” says Eugene Lee, Socialtext’s CEO. “We want to make sure it’s easy for people to get the most from both platforms to maximize their productivity and serve their customers better.”
