AMSTERDAM, January 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
FCG brings new dimension to corporate social networking with latest offerings
24-25 January 2012, Dorint Hotel Amsterdam
Formicary Collaboration Group (FCG) will be showcasing a new approach to corporate social networking and team collaboration at Beyond Enterprise 2.0 which can bring better business value to organisations than traditional tools. Neal Fiske, a collaboration veteran at FCG will be chairing day one of the event and discussing how organisations can use the wealth of content within their workflow systems to create collaborative discussions that are relevant to employees' day jobs. The result is a more informed and productive workforce, which ultimately has a positive impact on the business bottom line.
"Corporate Social Networks (CSN) may be the buzz-phrase of the moment but the reality is that the social and corporate elements of the concept remain disjointed," says Fiske. "One of the most cited barriers to adoption is the lack of integration between social tools and the corporate workspace. Without a steady flow of work-related content to catalyse collaboration, there's a risk that the CSN becomes irrelevant or even a distraction to the business. By integrating social tools into existing corporate technologies, Formicary Collaboration Group is encouraging collaborative discussions which directly relate to the business and drive it forward."
As well as exploring how to encourage collaboration across the enterprise, visitors to Beyond Enterprise 2.0 can also learn more about the tools that are making it easier to capture and share the informal, yet vital, knowledge held across the organisation.
With this in mind, Formicary Collaboration Group will be launching its latest Blackberry application to coincide with Beyond Enterprise 2.0. The app will make it easier for Microsoft Lync Group Chat users to remain fully connected with their teams to share and access information in a timely and efficient manner regardless of their location.
