We make social real! That’s our mantra here at NewsGator and now we see our customers recognized for that same spirit. We spend so much time talking about social features that it’s a welcome change to hear the industry look beyond the usual questions (i.e. “What is the difference between NewsGator and the basic collaboration tools like Yammer or Chatter?”) and recognize social business as a strategic initiative by calling out those organizations who are truly “making it real.”
A big congratulations to the NewsGator customers who made this year’s InformationWeek list, and a special ‘thank you’ to all our great customers who submitted their stories.
State Street - #1 Social Business Leader and NewsGator Customer of the Year
It was just a few months back that we celebrated State Street wining the NewsGator Customer of the Year award at the NewsGator Collective. And now, they are the #1 Social Business Leader! Amazing and well done; go team State Street!
Unisys - #2 Social Business Leader and Wonderful Thought-leader
It's no secret that we are big fans Unisys and the great efforts led by Gloria Burke. Achieving 91% adoption on their social platform in just 18 months is one aspect, but she is also a great thought-leader on social and how the way we work is changing. Daniel had the chance to connect with Gloria at The Collective and it’s clear she is breaking new ground every day in her thinking around the Future of Work
Mercer - Leading the Way
is leading the way in professional services by socially enabling their workforce to break down silos, connect and collaborate with colleagues, find expertise, and ask and answer questions. 5 months after launching their intranet portal, Mercer Link, 70% of their 20,000 employees have completed social profiles and are connecting and sharing on the site. By utilizing existing platforms, such as SharePoint and PeopleSoft, Harry Van Drunen saved his company from investing in other proprietary solutions and starting from scratch.
CHOP - Saving Childrens’ Lives with Social
How is that for a 'business' value? Their mission is not just to help children but also to constantly innovate to improve their lives as well. If you haven't had a chance to learn about them, now is a good time. Kudos to Perficient, NewsGator’s 2013 Partner of the Year, on the implementation.
