The versatile Pulse platform is the foundation of Neudesic’s client-focused strategy to deliver enterprise social products tailored to the unique needs of specific verticals, like The Firm Directory for the legal industry.
The Aragon Research Globe™ for Social Software, 2015 report evaluates 22 enterprise social network (ESN) providers who each focus on the core problem of sharing knowledge. The report places Pulse in the “Specialist” category, stating that “Neudesic has done well in certain industries such as Legal, where it has offered the ability to create complete directories via The Firm Directory, an internal expertise discovery system built on the Pulse platform.” Pulse was also named in Aragon’s Hot Vendors in Knowledge and Collaboration, 2014 report.
For the third consecutive year, Neudesic Pulse has been mentioned in Gartner’s October report, Magic Quadrant for Social Software in the Workplace. The report states “the market for social software in the workplace is coming under the increasing influence of adjacent markets, which has long-term implications that favor vendors with solutions spanning beyond social software itself.”
The Pulse product team has long recognized that the key to wide spread adoption of social collaboration in the workplace hinges on an ESN’s ability to deliver functionality that fills industry-specific needs.
“Every sector is unique,” said Ramin Vosough, Neudesic’s vice president of product. “We build enterprise collaboration products on the Pulse platform to deliver functionality that meets the distinctive knowledge sharing requirements of a variety of verticals. Similar to how The Firm Directory product delivers client, matter and practice collaboration to legal firms, the Pulse platform is tailored to serve a variety of industry-specific use cases, giving organizations a fine-tuned social collaboration and knowledge sharing system.”
The recognition from Aragon and mention by Gartner comes on the heels of Pulse being named a “Strong Performer” in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Social Platforms report last year. That report stated, “Pulse shines in an on-premises environment where deep and meaningful line-of-business integration supported by a strong professional services offering is required.”
Available both on-premises or via a managed cloud service, Neudesic Pulse combines social features and a social-centric approach to pre-integration with Microsoft SharePoint, SAP and other CRM applications, as well as a variety of line-of-business systems, giving organizations an integrated collaboration platform, knowledge repository and expertise discovery system.
