Moxie Software Announces Availability of Its Winter 2010 Social Enterprise Software

Built-in Knowledge Sharing Capabilities Bridge the Gap Between Social CRM and Enterprise 2.0; Enhancements Drive Employee and Customer Engagement, Accelerate Innovation, Facilitate Knowledge Capture and Sharing

Enterprise 2.0, Santa Clara, CA and Mountain View, CA, November 8, 2010— Moxie Software, today announced the Winter 2010 release of its social enterprise software platform, Spaces™ by Moxie. With this new release, Moxie’s award-winning Knowledgebase already available in Customer Engagement Spaces™ is now integrated with Employee Engagement Spaces™, bridging the gap between customer-facing and employee collaboration, and allowing enterprises to capture and share knowledge between employees, trusted partners, and customers. The Winter 2010 edition also includes major functionality enhancements, as well as an integration framework that provides pre-built integration plug-ins to all major enterprise applications—enabling system, application and data level access from within Spaces by Moxie™. Enterprise 2.0 attendees can stop by Moxie booth number 304 to see the product live in action.

“Companies have traditionally segmented their external communities from their internal enterprise collaboration and knowledge sharing, but the real value and power comes from bridging the two,” said Esteban Kolsky, principal and founder, ThinkJar. “The integration of Moxie’s powerful Knowledgebase, linking its support community and employee engagement solutions, is a real breakthrough in the way companies collaborate and engage with each other, their partners and customers—ultimately driving revenue and productivity.”

Employee Engagement Spaces™ Winter 2010 Includes: Knowledgebase, Integration to Major Legacy Systems Including SharePoint and MS Exchange, as well as New Features

Developed in collaboration with IDEO, a global design and innovation firm, Employee Engagement Spaces™ connects employees and trusted business partners, enhancing collaboration and innovation in the workplace. With the integration of Moxie’s Knowledgebase to Employee Engagement Spaces™, companies can now reap the benefits of true collaboration and information shared across both internal and external communities.

Designed around the way people work, Employee Engagement Spaces™ can be easily customized to integrate into organizations’ cultures, workflows, internal structures and data sources. Building on that philosophy, the Winter 2010 release includes several new features that enhance existing workflows and enable companies to maximize their technology investments:

  • An integration framework that provides pre-built integration to all major enterprise applications

  • Integration with MS Exchange: Calendar synchronization and ability to email content into discussion groups
  • Enhanced Micro blogging with real-time notifications

In addition to the above new features, Employee Engagement Spaces™ already includes robust capabilities that drive employee engagement and knowledge sharing.

“At Canon, we have dramatically improved the productivity of our ISG technical support organization and seen customer service improvements as a whole by leveraging the robust Knowledgebase from Moxie for customer self-service,” said Brian Wrage, director, Technical Support & Technology Systems, Canon U.S.A. “What we are truly excited about is our ability to leverage the integration of Knowledgebase with our partner community, so that expertise provided by partners can also be captured and published into the Knowledgebase for enhanced self-service.”

Language Support
Customer Engagement Spaces™ enables customers to engage with an enterprise via the channel that is most comfortable and convenient for them, including phone, email, chat, web self-service using the Knowledgebase, customer support community or social media monitoring. The Winter 2010 upgrades include:

  • SharePoint Search Connector: In addition to knowledgebase search, allows SharePoint repositories to be indexed and federated into search results
