Your company-extranet: Collaboration with customers, partners and suppliers

//SEIBERT/MEDIA has been working on intranets since almost the very beginning of the company in 1996. One of the first intranets was also an extranet. The system “PreSys” for the Berufsgenossenschaftlicher Arbeitsmedizinischer Dienst BAD GmbH in Bonn was established for about 2,000 employees and approximately 250,000 employees in over 3,500 assisted companies. At the time, it was mainly a highly structured and rights-based document filing system. It was impressive that the company, with a dedicated team from Karlsruhe, already succeeded in activating and inspiring both its own employees and customers for the system. That is how we gained our first experiences with Extranets.
Today, we are quite successful in marketing our intranet solution Linchpin. I am proud of the fact that huge corporations with thousands of employees in dozens of different countries are using our solution and technology in order to collaborate better.
We are now preparing the marketing of a standardized solution for extranets. It currently does not have a name yet. We used to have a nice name and a cool logo for everything. And a website. And a sales concept. Today we have a price and an offer and are looking for a few customers.

Integrating JIRA into Confluence

Confluence and JIRA interact with one another very closely. In one of our live webinars, my colleague, Jan Kuntscher, and I demonstrate JIRA integration in Confluence. Not only do we show standard features such as individual operations, configurable process lists, and JIRA task list creation within Confluence, we also provide some helpful tips for features that may be unfamiliar to you.

Interactive Webinars for Customers: We Want Efficient, Informative and Entertaining Talks

Webinar

There are obvious problems with in-person events: long travel times being just one. Online webinars often have their own set of problems, especially when they are bad sales pitches couched as useful presentations. We don’t want to run that type, so we propose a different format, handing control over to you, the participants. Sound interesting?
