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.

New Version 3.0 of Microblogging for Confluence: Enhanced user personalization, improved control possibilities for admins

Microblogging for Confluence is an add-on that extends Confluence to include a modern social media and communication feature with timeline, subscribable topics, likes, mentions, and other features that each employee knows from their private use of Facebook, Twitter & Co.

JIRA Tickets or Confluence Tasks: What Makes More Sense?

Confluence tasks - An example

In JIRA, companies manage their projects, epics, user stories and detailed tasks. Requirements are translated into concrete tickets that can be assigned and processed. Dependencies are shown here. Project progress is measured and evaluated with JIRA.

Confluence has also had tasks and tasks lists for several years. On this topic, someone contacted us a while ago on Twitter:

I wonder when you should use Confluence’s task lists instead of JIRA?

Urban Gardening: Our Rooftop Terrace is Greener!

Urban gardening at //SEIBERT/MEDIA

My colleague Torsten – our pioneer in landscaping and cultivation – recently came up with the great idea of ​​planting our terrace with useful plants instead of simply decorative ones. Space is abundant, and especially for colleagues who live in the city without their own garden, urban gardening is a great opportunity to put our green thumbs together. There’s also something to hanging out during the lunch break in our own garden with the growing vegetables! 🙂
