The popularity of private, secure, internal social networks for business are on the rise. Initially thought to be as a distraction or “Facebook for business”, these networks are rapidly being looked upon as a must for better efficiency. Why? "Ease of use, Better enterprise grade security and more workflow capabilities," says Anup Kejriwal, founder MangoSpring.
MangoApps is a comprehensive enterprise collaboration solution that combines social networking, knowledge management and project execution in one breakthrough product. "MangoApps uniquely converges real-time collaboration capabilities — such as instant messaging, video conferencing for up to 50 participants, and group chat — with social networking and offers integration via connector plug-ins into business, enterprise productivity and collaboration applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Office, SharePoint, Office 365, Google Docs, etc. People profiles, micro-blogging and social activity stream feeds are built in. There is support for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)-based directory services such as Active Directory, which will ensure that the identity of people in MangoApps profiles are the same in other enterprise applications such as Microsoft's SharePoint or Outlook." adds Vipin.
