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.

It is certainly true for one particularly large one. But that’s not what you will get with a Linchpin social intranet solution: We are fully transparent about all of the costs and services involved in the entire project.

Workplace by Facebook: Workplace, Social Intranet or Social Network? (II)

Last year, Facebook started offering a business solution called, Workplace by Facebook. It’s a variation of the social network of the same name, but for use in the office. Companies can easily register, calculate costs, and quickly get up and running.

But what does the term “workplace” really mean in this case? What does Workplace by Facebook (referred to as Workplace hereafter) actually offer companies?
