As the long-distance and international communications and ICT solution
provider of NTT Group, NTT Com was looking to add a social engagement solution
to their enterprise portfolio.Task Management offers a collaboration service
for sharing files and knowledge across people and businesses.The service
includes powerful measurement capabilities for tracking participant and task
step status, and built-in version controls that drive accountability by
ensuring that information is accessible and traceable at anytime, from
anywhere, and on any device.This service is expected to drive communication
and engagement that maximizes company returns by embedding valuable social
behaviors into real business relationships and processes.
Task Management enables companies to:
*Manage project communication and file sharing all in one view- Create
tasks that contain multiple steps and assign each step to one or more
people. Designated, secure workspaces enable discussions and file sharing
between project members to avoid cumbersome email transactions allowing
all stakeholders to stay up-to-date on project progress for faster and
more informed decision-making. Task Management keeps track of who is
responsible for the current step, notifies the next person when it is
their turn to complete a step, and notifies the task owner when actions
have been taken.
*Move discussions, approvals, and decisions out of email and into the
social network- Automatically assign tasks and begin discussions by
synchronizing email with the social network for a single source of
knowledge and maintaining a record of important approvals as an audit
trail.Powerful mobile capabilities connect users across geographic
regions and time zones with the information they need to do to do their
job which improves business agility and productivity.
*Search task history for past discussions and files- Leverage a constant
flow of information and knowledge in real-time on the social network.File
version control shows revision history of all attachments, user comments
on the files, and stores the information in a searchable structure for
easy on-boarding and knowledge transfer to project employees.
*Use the address book to uncover sources of expertise- Unlock new sources
of information or subject matter specialists by utilizing the network
address book.User created profile pages show work specialization and
experience allowing others to find experts, ask advice, and collaborate on
project activity.Company management benefits from properly allocated
human resources and accelerates innovation across the organization.
*Work socially with the whole business social ecosystem- Create several
social tasks with different audiences, from both internally within the
company and externally with partners or customers.Manage these tasks
together as a coherent whole, rather than a series of disjointed
projects.With Task Management both internal and external users can
coexist in a single social platform, with the privacy and security of each
"Engagement management is at the heart of companies looking to move to
Enterprise 2.0, which is a very exciting mega-trend in IT and global business
evolution, especially when put in the context of cloud computing," said Dr.
Pehong Chen, Chairman, President, and CEO of BroadVision."Engagement
solutions enable companies to directly engage with their employees, customers,
partners, and suppliers through transparent and enhanced services on a single
