new way to collaborate, share, and connect

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ONMay 31, 2018 – Igloo Software, the leading provider of digital workplace solutions, is offering all VMware Socialcast customers who are impacted by the end of service announcement, a path forward to its innovative enterprise communication and collaboration solutions, as well as a free ticket to its digital workplace conference, ICE’18. VMware announced an end-of-life notification for its social networking product Socialcast, which is used by 40,000 organizations globally according to its website.

Socialcast’s freemium product will be decommissioned by August 1, 2018, and for customers with paid licenses, support will end May 17, 2019, leaving many businesses in need of an enterprise-grade communication and collaboration platform. Igloo Software offers an award-winning portfolio of digital workplace solutions, enabling former Socialcast customers a platform to house their collaboration data and resources, as well as provide employees a secure network for communication and increased employee engagement.

“As organizations become increasingly siloed, it is imperative for leaders to provide employees with a versatile platform that allows information to be securely stored and shared across the business,” said Dan Latendre, Founder & CEO of Igloo Software. “Our goal is to provide the businesses who relied on Socialcast with a next-gen alternative that not only exceeds the capabilities of what they are using today but also has the ability to solve even more of their business challenges moving forward.”

In addition to supporting businesses during their transition from Socialcast to Igloo Software, Socialcast customers will also be provided with a free ticket to ICE’18 (a $700 value) upon completion of a free 20-minute digital workplace and compatibility assessment. ICE’18 is the premier digital workplace conference, taking place in San Antonio from Sept. 11-13, 2018.

“Organizations who have been affected can take comfort in knowing that Igloo’s digital workplace solutions will provide the ideal digital destination for employees with the purpose of driving employee engagement through improved communications, team collaboration, knowledge sharing, and a thriving corporate culture.  We’re ready to provide our expertise to businesses around the world, regardless of solutions they’ve leaned on in the past,” said Latendre. “Communication and collaboration looks different from organization to organization so it’s important to have access to a portfolio of digital workplace solutions designed to address your specific needs and can grow as your business does.”
