Avature launch new social intranet

  • submit to reddit

Software as a service provider Avature announced a new social intranet platform today at the SHRM Annual Conference.

The company, who made their name producing human capital management software, announced the release of Avature SIM in an attempt to aid large global companies with their internal communications.

"Global organizations are discovering that in order for agile business practices to take hold, new social technology is required," commented Dimitri Boylan, Avature's founder and CEO, "one that supports organic business activity and employee generated networks together with company driven processes and group structures."

One potential use for the new platform is in talent management.  For instance companies will be able to develop internal talent pools, thus allowing employees to float flexibly around the organisation wherever their abilities will be best suited.

HR Managers can use Avature's workflow builder to create multiple, fully customized and socially oriented on-boarding and off-boarding processes based on geography, job level, or urgency, and easily report on all movement across the organization.

"The social generation is arriving to the office with new expectations and a new, more open and collaborative work style," commented Ezequiel Vazquez, Senior Vice President of Product Management at Avature, "and Avature SIM is designed to align this work style with real business needs."
