PALO ALTO, Calif.--(Socialtext, a leading enterprise social software provider, has been named one of the “100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management” by KMWorld magazine. For the past thirteen years, KMWorld has recognized the 100 companies that best demonstrate a commitment to their customers and the field of knowledge management. The annual list has been compiled by knowledge management practitioners, theorists, analysts, vendors, and their customers and colleagues.)--
“Social is a natural extension of knowledge management. But whereas traditional knowledge management struggled to achieve knowledge capture and sharing, social is weaving them into the daily flow of work”
"Social is a natural extension of knowledge management. But whereas traditional knowledge management struggled to achieve knowledge capture and sharing, social is weaving them into the daily flow of work,” said Michael Idinopulos, General Manager, Socialtext. “We're thrilled to be recognized by KMWorld, and by the way the knowledge management community has embraced social and Socialtext."
Socialtext has been a leader in social collaboration for more than a decade, delivering a resource for customers to communicate, collaborate on internal projects, and connect on the information necessary to be more effective in the workplace. By simplifying people's ability to share knowledge, ideas and corporate data, Socialtext removes silos and corporate barriers that have traditionally hampered companies' ability to respond to change and better serve customers.
"Criteria for inclusion varies, but all of the companies on this year’s list have been thoroughly evaluated, and each has truly contributed value to the industry,” says Hugh McKellar, Editor-in-Chief, KMWorld. “Each has either helped to create a market, redefine one or enhance one, and they all share two things—the velocity of innovation and the agility to serve their customers. Socialtext is well deserving of this recognition."
The full list of winners will be unveiled in the March 2013 issue at www.kmworld.com. For more information on Socialtext, visit www.socialtext.com, find the company on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/socialtext or on Twitter at @Socialtext.
