Social business, indispensable driver of the digital transformation
United Planet awarded Social Business Leader 2016
The software company, United Planet, has been awarded the prize of Social Business Leader for the third time in a row. In a new study, Experton accredited the producer with a highly attractive product and service portfolio. The data integration capabilities of the software, Intrexx, were especially convincing to the IT consulting company.

According to the study, United Planet has “transformed its original intranet solution, Intrexx, into a comprehensive social enterprise networking suite over the last years, and with this, it currently offers one of the best and most mature solutions on the German market.”
The study particularly highlights the integration capabilities. The interaction of the portal framework, Intrexx, and the social collaboration application, Intrexx Share
, allows for any amount of software solutions to be included in the information exchange. In this way, the system not only encourages knowledge exchange and cooperation among colleagues, but also provides the company with a comprehensive data hub.
By integrating additional systems, such as CRM, BI and ERP, Intrexx becomes, according to Experton, a “complete solution” that compiles all relevant information in one interface for the users.

One of the study’s core statements highlights the ever increasing role of social collaboration software: “To be successful within the digital economy, business procedures and concepts need to be adapted using social components.” This explains the high average yearly growth of the market by 31%.
