Social Software is transforming communication in the Enterprise at a faster rate than ever before. It is increasing efficiencies and improving productivity through real-time information, conversations, and decision making. KickApps provides a platform for businesses to create a collaborative environment for employees to respond quickly and effectively to business opportunities and increase productivity. The solution couples conversational collaboration (community based communications) and document centric collaboration.
We believe that to achieve a high level of adoption among employees, it is crucial to create a user-friendly environment that is as easy to use as Facebook. KickApps Social Business applications for employee collaboration present a highly customizable and turn- key approach to enabling more efficient knowledge sharing and teamwork amongst your workforce. Enhance your existing document based solutions, such as Microsoft Sharepoint, with our people-centric applications in order to facilitate idea generation, problem solving and communication.
Online interactions between people and content is at the very core of engagement and we have built many of the core 'apps' that you will need, including social collaboration, messaging, media & document sharing, groups, message boards, comments & ratings and the list goes on. Our solutions let you create a company-wide repository of structured and conversational knowledge as well as an expertise based directory of employees, enabling easy communication and connection across your company.
The KickApps Affiliate Center (our control panel) gives our customers complete control over who can view their profiles and how each member can participate therein. KickApps-powered sites can be open to the public or restricted to members only. Personal profile pages can be highly customized displaying a wide range of custom profile questions, as well as activity feeds of members and friends.
Project Management is a great example for the social nature of employee collaboration. More and more projects are delivered with team members being distributed around the globe. This creates the need for an effective collaboration platform that allows project members to engage in real time conversations. The KickApps platform allows project members to connect with each other in various ways using video chat, private messaging, blogs, document sharing, groups and much more. Harness your employees' creative energy and output by creating a virtual environment that enables them to share and experiment with new ideas amongst teams with KickApps' unique Idea Exchange & Generation applications.
KickApps' platform is so easy to implement that it comes with a self-serve option, allowing customers to start a free 30-day trial and begin configuring and deploying their site immediately. These clients can configure every aspect of their community site within the Affiliate Center control panel. These types of sites can literally launch same day if the client is prepared with the right information, and can be launched and managed by someone with minimal technical experience. That said, many of our enterprise clients decide on customized implementations of our technology that go beyond what our platform is designed to do out of the box. For this reason, we provide a full API developers' kit, as well as a 25 person strategy & professional services team that can help our clients ideate and execute custom uses of the technology.
KickApps supports the right to privacy, including the rights of individuals to control the dissemination and use of personal data that describes them, their personal choices, or life experiences. As such, we have a fully-developed set of policies and procedures for dealing with the personal information of our clients and users. All personal information contained within our servers is stored in encrypted form. When they are no longer needed, all copies of personal data, including those on backup media, are irreversibly destroyed. KickApps employs rigorous methods for backing up the data stored within our platform. This includes regular full-database backups (complete dumps) that are copied to backup clusters. These database updates are replicated in real time and exist in different locations.
While KickApps began life as a self-service community platform, we have evolved into the industry's first true Social CMS. The power of our platform is in the way we store, associate and serve content, user data and social experiences. This back end, coupled with our innovative AppStudio, allows publishers to extend their user community beyond their domain - out to Facebook, mobile apps and other websites, while tracking and managing all of it centrally.
