Socialtext, a leading provider of enterprise social software, has been listed as an ‘Innovator’ in Info-Tech Research Group’s latest Collaboration Platforms Vendor Landscape report. Assessing vendors by the strength of their offering and their strategy for the enterprise, Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscapes pay tribute to the contribution of exceptional vendors in a particular category. Companies positioned as Innovators have demonstrated ground-breaking product strengths that act as their competitive advantage in appealing to niche segments of the market.

“Effective workforce collaboration is critical for organizations of all sizes these days,” said Michael Idinopulos, Chief Customer Office and General Manager of Socialtext. “As collaboration and knowledge management come together to produce social knowledge, it’s generating measureable benefits, which are quantified by increases in employee productivity. Our acknowledgement as an ‘Innovator’ in Info-Tech Research’s latest Collaboration Platforms Vendor Landscape report further validates our position as an industry leader in allowing businesses to get work done in an efficient manner.”

Socialtext was given a value index score of 90 which ranked second out of the eleven vendors listed in this year’s report. The value score indexes each vendor’s product offering and business strength relative to their price point. In the report, Socialtext was commended for its deep social collaboration feature set – including social tagging, activity feeds and advanced expertise search – which make it easy for knowledge workers to network with one another.

“The collaboration landscape is rapidly evolving and companies must continually evaluate currently deployed solutions against the innovative products being served up by major vendors in this space,” said Ben Dickie, Research Analyst, Info-Tech Research Group. “Socialtext’s strong features and attractive price point make it perfect for SMBs needing to boost social collaboration.”

Info-Tech’s Vendor Landscapes are research materials that review a particular IT market space, evaluating the strengths and abilities of both the products available in that space, as well as the vendors of those products. These materials are created by a team of dedicated analysts operating under the direction of a senior subject matter expert over a period of six weeks.
