Hours are wasted sifting through files, trying to find the information you need or establishing which document is the correct version. To solve this, enterprise technology needs to look to what is happening in the consumer world, which is using recommendation technology to understand what people want to present them with better results. Enterprise search thus far has failed and enterprise technology now needs to be inherently intelligent, pushing the files it thinks users need based on their actions in system.
Huddle uses patent-pending technology to deliver the relevant content to team members automatically, improving efficiency and team productivity.
"In an era of the empowered business buyer, people are looking for better and faster ways to collaborate and get work done," said Jim Lundy, CEO and Lead Analyst, Aragon Research. "Information and content sharing still is one of the biggest challenges we see. Huddle's approach combines both content and collaboration with intelligent delivery of content to users based on what they are doing. This shift to smarter and predictive software is what business users are looking for."
Legacy technology is failing users
Legacy enterprise technologies, such as SharePoint and email, are failing to support the content collaboration needs of today's workforce. Built before the advent of social, mobile and cloud, systems such as SharePoint were designed to lock information within the firewall and prevent people outside of the organization from accessing files. Without native mobile support or the ability to work with people outside of an organization, such technologies are deployed by IT, but tolerated by the business. Although used by workers to share files with others, email is a communication tool rather than a collaboration tool. According to the Huddle Enterprise Information Landscape report, US office workers are continuing to struggle when it comes to sharing content. Almost two thirds (65%) of office workers continue to revert to sending email attachments. Nearly a fifth (16%) use USB drives and 15% send hard copies of documents via courier.
Huddle moves content collaboration out of legacy systems, such as SharePoint and email, into a secure, central environment. All comments, social conversations, feedback, and document versions are tracked via full audit trails.
It is still too difficult to work with people
Traditional IT processes have made collaboration too difficult in an era of cloud, mobile, and social. Working with external partners is complex, while accessing content through VPN is time-consuming and arduous. Mobile devices are under-serviced, and workers simply cannot get their job done efficiently with the tools provided. Following the initial excitement surrounding enterprise social tools, the enthusiasm is set to subside as organizations realize social platforms are just fire hoses of information that overload workers. Looking ahead, social features will be inherent in all enterprise content collaboration services. Conversations will be focused on enterprise content and teams will be able to get their jobs done more efficiently.
Huddle provides one platform in the cloud to store and work on all your content and to securely collaborate internally with colleagues and externally with customers, partners and suppliers.
Failed implementations must stop
Traditional deployments of enterprise software have consumed budgets and required armies of consultants to customize and deploy before users even start engaging. This leads to frustration and failed implementations. Such approaches are no longer viable as enterprises look for fast competitive advantage in a world driven by social, mobile, and cloud technologies. In today's world, mass bottom-up adoption leads to an enterprise rollout.
Huddle guarantees user adoption and engagement by placing the end-user at the heart of deployment. It is the only company in the market to provide a money-back user adoption guarantee.
