The company built CliquePoint on Microsoft SharePoint, due to its ability to leverage existing social features, metadata services and integration with backend systems etc, said a press release.
“We wanted to provide a platform where everyone including enterprise business systems could come together and share information. To get there, it needed a technology platform that would facilitate collaboration across the organization in an easy, responsive, and accurate way,” said AbhayChitnis, VP and CTO, L&T Infotech.
“...CliquePoint was designed to connect easily to our existing IT environment. It offered many out-of-the-box features as well as the flexibility and customizability to develop a comprehensive enterprise social collaboration. We also tried to make it very easy for users to jump right in and find the required information” added Chitnis.
The enterprise social collaboration tool CliquePoint is split into communities, personal collaboration and business events.
Communities help people with common interests to exchange ideas and best practices and the personal collaboration features provide people with comprehensive tools such as micro-blogs, blogs, and wikis, enabling them to connect and follow others. The most important feature introduced is tracking business events and involving enterprise business systems in collaboration.
The enterprise collaboration portal gives the employees streamlined access to information, know and understand each other better and ultimately work better together. This has helped to foster innovation through dynamic collaboration.
