Year in year out, every third Thursday of November France celebrates the Beaujolais Nouveau wine and with every last Thursday of January comes the Lecko benchmark on Enterprise Social Networks. Once again, the 8th volume and its 144 pages have been majestically presented by its authors.
First of all, congrats to the Lecko team: the quality of the benchmark did not suffer under the years, on the contrary! The research on digital transformation completes the previous editions, rather than replace them.
For the eighth time blueKiwi is placed in the Leaders quadrant in this highly complex and competitive market, we are a leader in the productivity matrix, leader in the knowledge management matrix, leader in external networks and leader in the social abilities’ matrix with, as a bonus, the best ranking for conversational use!
Lecko ESN study Volume 8 – p. 65
According to Lecko, blueKiwi’s strength lies in “offering a broad spectrum of use cases that align with business needs.” BlueKiwi has “continued to develop and re-invent the product”.
“Historical French actor and pioneer in the market, blueKiwi will blow its tenth candle this year. Arrived at maturity, the platform answers to the (internal and external) communities’ needs for information sharing and collaboration, enabling network formation and leveraging conversations within organizations. It even covers the first level of intranet functionalities. Ready to use and distributed as SaaS only, collaboration is done through conversations based on different content types (messages, documents, ideas, surveys …) and is organized in structured spaces facilitating information structuring and knowledge management.”
Furthermore, Lecko compliments the introduction of the Office365 connector, designed to enable Microsoft users to benefit from advanced collaboration features to further enhance the benefits which Office365 is delivering.
Also, blueKiwi is one of the few vendors to offer native apps for all the mobile environments: iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry. Plus, the editor adds more than 6 points on top of the average vendor score for ergonomics.
Finally, let’s recall the Pirelli tagline “Power is nothing without control”. BlueKiwi takes an above-average spot in terms of “high-edge features”. Indeed, there is no point in offering an overwhelming number of rich functionalities if they do not answer to the users’ needs.
