SocialChorus, a global workforce communications platform, announced it is now offering a bi-directional integration solution through Microsoft SharePoint. This integration allows communicators to increase reach to every worker, publish from one place and unify the reporting analytics of all employee communications programs.
Internal communicators and their IT counterparts across all industries have similar challenges. For one, they lead digital transformation initiatives and are tasked with optimizing internal communications at their companies. Additionally, many companies struggle to reach every employee due to distributed or deskless teams and fragmented communications channels, including intranets, email, mobile apps, or digital signage. Further, many companies lack a unified system that allows them to track communications analytics in one place.
SocialChorus’ workforce communications platform closes the gap in reaching every employee. Through the SharePoint integration, content can be posted directly from SharePoint to every SocialChorus channel across desktop and mobile. This integration also pairs well with SocialChorus’ Content Amplifier solution, which posts content from SocialChorus to anywhere there is an iframe, such as SharePoint. This dual, bi-directional approach helps solve reach and publishing issues for communicators on the platform of their choosing.
Finally, a single point of publishing saves hundreds of hours a year, as communicators need to only publish once to distribute across multiple different communication channels. Connecting SocialChorus and SharePoint also creates a system of record to track results and show real business impact.
“This integration with SharePoint meets employees where they prefer to engage, rather than require they switch platforms. We believe we should meet employees wherever they choose to be.,” said Tim Christensen, Chief Technology Officer of SocialChorus. “We make it easy for our customers to connect with all employees, whether they manage content in SocialChorus Program Studio or from SharePoint. This is pivotal in reaching every worker in every location on the channels they prefer.”
Mike Ammerlaan, director, Microsoft Office 365 Ecosystem at Microsoft said, “Digital transformation is a major priority for many of our customers and internal communications play a critical role in this. The integration of SocialChorus with SharePoint allows companies to digitally transform more quickly, connecting multiple communication platforms to inform and align employees at large companies.”
