September 22, 2011 (London, UK) - - IGLOO Software, the leading provider of social business software in the cloud, today unveiled two new applications for sales enablement and marketing asset management, in addition to powerful new group collaboration capabilities. The additions come as a part of IGLOO's latest product release, announced at the Gartner Portals, Content & Collaboration Summit 2011 from September 21 to 22 in London.
Delivered in the cloud as a social intranet or extranet, IGLOO's eight social applications help employees share knowledge, locate documents and expertise, communicate with colleagues and customers, build connections and work better together. The sales portal application includes Salesforce.com integration and is designed to enable sales teams to deliver timely information to their prospects, in order to move deals forward faster. The marketing portal application enables a more effective means of sharing collateral, coordinating campaigns and brainstorming ideas across teams and geographies.
"We developed a family of four social intranet and four social extranet applications because we realized that different users and teams have different requirements," said Andrew Dixon, vice president, marketing & operations at IGLOO. "This allows our customers to choose the application that best meets their needs, and to get up and running quickly because it's in the cloud and it's preconfigured."
With IGLOO's latest release, departmental and team collaboration is also greatly enhanced by a simplified interface for creating and managing a group space. Group space administrators may now choose a template, clone an existing space or start from scratch, accelerating the time it takes to form and configure the widgets that appear in a group.
New capabilities also covered in this release include:
- Ability to view deleted files in a recycle bin and restore content to its original location
- Addition of social bookmarking for saving, organizing and sharing useful links
- Expansion of moderation to enable approvals on documents prior to publishing to a folder
IGLOO delivers new releases approximately every 60 days through its Software as a Service (SaaS) architecture, making sure that each customer can immediately take advantage of the latest innovations in enterprise social technology. The new social intranet applications are immediately available and the latest group collaboration features will be rolled out to all customers on October 1, 2011.
