Socialcast, started in 2005, creates and deploys social software to thousands of companies across industries. It was acquired by VMware in May 2011.
One of the major pain areas for companies is engaging employees and increasing productivity due to communication overload and knowledge silos. Socialcast creats a simple, data rich collaborative space where employees can find information from applications, systems and people across the enterprise. It creates an awareness on what everyone is doing, saying and thinking in the company.
It increases efficiency by opening new lines of communications and enables faster data flow between applications and various users and teams. By allowing collaborations and discussions to happen on the site, it avoids unnecessary meeting and mail trails which improves productivity.
This enterprise social network creates a central hub for information sharing and knowledge does not remain in silos with each employee. People can learn about the organization tree, access the executives, share their ideas and know what is happening in the company.
In short, with Socialcast, companies can establish a open culture in the company, give them the experience of working together without being in the same room or location, improve the flow of information and ideas and benefit from these ideas which otherwise would have gone unheard.
