Burlington, Ontario – (The Hosting News) – February 24, 2006 – Internet communications company, iUpload, has announced the
integration of its Customer Conversation System with Microsoft’s SharePoint,
bringing enterprise blogging and wiki capabilities to SharePoint users.
According to the company, the
iUpload Customer Conversation System combines blogs and related social media
technologies with enterprise-class management tools to improve internal and
external communications and drive operational efficiencies.
The iUpload SharePoint integration brings all of iUpload’s advanced
features for managing large communities of blogs, including editorial control,
template and taxonomy management, security and versioning, to the Microsoft
SharePoint environment, and allows users to present blog, wiki and other
content as Web Parts within SharePoint.
iUpload also permits SharePoint users to draw in the best content from large
blog communities that may include contributions from employees, partners and
customers, while leveraging the blog, wiki, discussion forum, and podcasting
features of iUpload. Since the iUpload Customer Conversation System supports
virtually any third party blog authoring tool, the SharePoint integration also
allows companies to harness, integrate, and manage independent blogs that
already exist within most corporate environments regardless of the blogging
tool that they are authored and hosted on.
Robin Hopper, CEO of iUpload explained, ”As the pervasiveness of blogs in the corporate environment continues to grow at a phenomenal rate, organizations are beginning to understand the importance of harnessing this content for the benefit of company communication and mindshare. Our integration will extend the value of Microsoft’s SharePoint by offering a way for organizations to easily incorporate employee blogs, wikis and other content for enterprise use all from within the SharePoint platform.”
The SharePoint integration makes iUpload blog, wiki, and other features available as Web Parts to include within SharePoint. iUpload content that can be included when building SharePoint sites includes:
— Wikis, recent posts, podcasts, events and photo albums by knowledge category;
— Lists of bloggers and contributors;
— Lists of categories and corresponding RSS feeds;
— Most popular and commented on blog posts and wikis; and,
— Editor’s picks.
The product is currently in use by more than 50 companies across a range of industries. iUpload’s Customer Conversation System combines a comprehensive set of blogging, wiki and content management tools with the IT management capabilities required for enterprise deployment, such as security, workflow, regulatory compliance and integration with existing enterprise applications and other third-party solutions.
