  • Empower document collaboration across the organization: Employees can work within the Telligent Enterprise interface to check out, edit and check in documents; interaction is seamless with all the controls embedded within Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and other authoring tools. Versioning capabilities enable employees to view past versions of documents and revert to previous versions directly from the Telligent Enterprise UI.

  • Experience flexible document management with social interaction: Telligent Enterprise integration with Microsoft SharePoint 2010 simplifies social community and document management configuration. Organizations can connect any media library within Telligent Enterprise to any Microsoft SharePoint document library while maintaining the appropriate level of privacy and security.
  • Simplify configuration for administrators: Through quick and easy linking of any Microsoft SharePoint document library with any Telligent Enterprise media library, files already stored within Telligent Enterprise are moved to Microsoft SharePoint immediately and all subsequent additions and changes are captured automatically.
  • Deliver insight to employees with consolidated activity messages: Telligent Enterprise integration with Microsoft SharePoint 2010 consolidates activity messages to streamline Microsoft SharePoint members' visibility into what their colleagues and friends are doing across Microsoft SharePoint sites, Telligent Enterprise groups and other applications connected to the Telligent platform.
  • Partner with a technology leader committed to integration with Microsoft technologies: Microsoft SharePoint 2010 integration builds on Telligent's current integration with SharePoint 2007, Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, opening the door for advanced functions including knowledge sharing through: blogs, wikis, forums, online polls, media galleries of photos and videos, email, synchronized document editing, instant messaging and more.
