Nuage Café is an advanced knowledge and file sharing platform that enables you to securely share and manage your intellectual property. Designed to function like the social networking tools we use in our personal lives, Nuage Café fosters the development and collaboration of global virtual teams and creates a more natural environment for communication. With features such as document check-in/check-out, document versioning, instant messenger, and much more, Nuage Café allows companies to increase productivity, put an end to messy email file sharing, USB drives and "black hole" document searching, and connect anytime, anywhere.
To make all tools comparable for you, we have created a set of categories where every tool has its own description, whether it fullfills the categories or not. You can read a detailed description of each category on this page.
Nuage Café is built on a communication and collaboration platform that functions like the social networking tools we use in our personal lives. Widespread use and familiarity with these social networking tools allows global work teams and external business partners to seamlessly and quickly communicate. An instant message feature further provides the ability for real-time communication, collaboration and ad-hoc innovation.
Nuage Café allows you to collaborate with colleagues and external business partners by securely uploading and sharing files, creating groups and events, and providing a blogging platform to ask questions and post ideas for team/workplace feedback. Capabilities like document check-in/check-out and versioning help ensure that revisions can easily be made and that work is not interrupted by conflicting content. The Café "Groups" feature leverages the collective knowledge of the organization and facilitates collaboration without the need for time-consuming meetings and back-and-forth email communications.
In addition to running on a collaboration platform that functions like other widespread social networking tools, Nuage Café is also an open platform business solution. This means that the opportunity for social networking and expert search is enhanced and includes all members of the Café community who have public profiles. The "Groups" capability in Nuage Café is also an excellent way to create a Café network, whether it be an internal work group or department, a group of internal employees and external partners working together on a project, or even a group of professionals who simply share common interests.
Nuage Café allows you to manage your personal information and control the visibility of that information via a dedicated profile page. The "My Profile" page shows relevant updates and accessible colleagues, blogs, members, shared documents, and groups that you belong to.
Ownership of folders, the ability to share documents as desired and create work groups who will interact with documents provides the opportunity for basic project management in Nuage Café. Additional project management capabilities are provided by Nuage CaféBiz, including the ability to manage the process of review and approval of documents.
To achieve flexibility in operations, a focus on process improvement, collaboration and the concept of “flattened” organizations is critical. With Nuage Café, companies have the opportunity to not only improve processes for file and information sharing, communication, and collaboration, but Café also provides an enterprise solution for bringing the organization to a singular level of communication and collaboration. Whether for the company CEO or an entry level staff member, Café delivers a common solution for collaboration and ad-hoc innovation at all levels of an organization.
