NeGD Selects Axero's Communifire to Drive Internal Employee Collaboration

The National e-Governance Division (NeGD), a business division of Media Labs Asia, which operates under the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology for the Government of India, has recently deployed the Communifire business collaboration tool from Axero Solutions to optimize internal employee collaboration.

In a release, Neelmony Pannu, a Program & Knowledge Management Consultant working at NeGD, said, "When we started thinking about Knowledge Management for our projects, we decided to target the tacit knowledge of employees first by using an enterprise collaboration application. Our focus was on organized knowledge sharing and information management by cross departmental collaboration. Communifire, with its unique concept of spaces, an interactive user interface and nominal pricing and excellent customer support was preferred over other options."

Communifie's SaaS (News - Alert) deployment will provide NeGD employees with business value benefits of a cloud-based business service and allow them full control of the platform without the need for any heavy upfront hardware, resources investments or massive overheads that they would otherwise bear if they were running the application directly. 

Tim Eisenhauer, Managing Partner at Axero, said, "Learning is most powerful when it occurs in context, and we at Axero believe that traditional training, while valuable, should not be the only mode of education and collaboration in corporations. Communifire promotes organized sharing and promotes the importance of peer groups by leveraging the power of tools like micro-blogging, forums, wikis and "spaces", where increased engagement with the shared content improves retention and shortens knowledge transfer.”

The Communifire solution from Axero has been designed to include an extensive range of collaboration and community tools which can optimize internal collaboration between the workforce of an organization.

The core benefits of the solution include customizable user profiles and micro-blogging, activity feeds as well as groups and spaces, discussion forums and file and document sharing capabilities. Additionally, the solution features content publishing, notifications, and event based management calendars.
