Sparqlight Debuts Cloud-Based Enterprise Social WorkflowEnterprise Edition Offers Global Search, Enhanced Security, Data Export Options and Brings Unprecedented Visibility, Measurement and Accountability to "Getting Work Done"! #GWD (May 09, 2012)
SANTA MONICA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/09/12 -- Sparqlight [www.sparqlight.com], today announced the launch of the enterprise edition of its leading cloud-based social workflow application that powers agile, driven businesses while automating time-intensive, repetitive tasks. The updated edition adds key enterprise features to its industry leading application, including global search, enhanced security features and advanced analytics. These features complement Sparqlight's core enterprise social workflow application, which enables the flexibility of "improvisational" and "templated" workflows through a simple, familiar social interface.
The enterprise edition of Sparqlight comes with:
- Advanced Workflow Analytics for tracking, visualizing, measuring and impacting Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
- Global search, which simplifies finding workflow, best practices, colleagues, groups, initiatives and related resources.
- Enhanced security features for building logical firewalls.
- Workflow Export for bringing Sparqlight data into other business systems and spreadsheets.
- Professional Service & Support which includes training, development and a dedicated customer success manager.
"Sparqlight enables people to create and assign tasks associated with any business process," said Alan Lefpofsky, Principal Analyst for Collaboration Software at Constellation Research. "Their powerful filtering and analytics features make it easy for people to track progress and measure the results, helping people get their work done more effectively."
This new Sparqlight release addresses the pain points that have limited the adoption and hampered the engagement levels of enterprise social networks -- especially the inability to measure the business impact and Return on Investment (ROI) of these technologies. It is imperative that organizations measure, analyze and constantly improve collaboration and teamwork. Making people's tasks and workflow the focus of the network and providing ease of measurement makes it simple to track ROI.
"In just a few short weeks after our soft-launch at SXSW, over 1,000 companies signed up for our service -- from HR professionals at Fortune 500s to agile engineering firms, to sales ops teams. The key to our success is a fanatical focus on a simple message: get work done," said Brian Reisgen, Sparqlight co-founder and CEO. "Our customers don't just want to keep up with the competition, they want to lap them. Because we've weaved the social networking metaphor deeply throughout our product, it feels intuitive, natural and simple for end-users. It's revolutionary."
From the smallest task to the most complicated company-wide initiative, Sparqlight's unified social workflow service replaces endless meetings, emails, whiteboards and phone calls with a simple, intuitive, cloud-based application. Real-time, familiar social features streamline time-intensive, repetitive tasks, enabling workers to:
- Create social workflows with Templates, To-Do's, Goals, Ideas and Notes.
- Easily get work done and post updates.
- Receive feedback from team members, including those outside their organizations.
- Assign goals and To-Do's to groups, to be "claimed" by colleagues.
- Easily track their work with filters, views and analytics -- enabling easy visibility, measurement, and accountability.
"Sparqlight makes initiating any given process about as easy as sending an email. Actually, it's a little bit easier," said Matt Pfeil, VP of Customer Engagement at DataStax. "With an email, if I want something done I have to hit compose, type all the instructions, and hit send. Sparqlight has a nice option where at the end of creating a task I can save a template for it, so the next time I can just change the name of the customer and don't have to type the whole thing up again."
