Bolste Recognized as Leading Innovator in Enterprise Social Software
Aragon Research market study features Bolste as a leading innovator among 21 knowledge sharing platforms
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Oct. 19, 2016 – Bolste (bolste.com) was recently named as a leading “Innovator” in “The Aragon Research Globe™ for Social Software, 2016: Shifting to Work and Outcomes.”
The research firm, which looked at 21 Enterprise Social Network (ESN) providers, added Bolste to the list for the first time this year. The study focused on a number of parameters throughout its analysis, including Bolste’s product strategy, market understanding, management, visibility, pricing/packaging, product, customer experience and R&D.
“We’re honored to be recognized as one of the leading innovators in the space,” said Leif Hartwig, Bolste founder and CEO. “Bolste is excited to continue down that path, helping customers to drive better outcomes in all areas of their businesses— from sales enablement to customer innovation to partnership management.”
With platforms like Workplace at Facebook, Salesforce’s Chatter and Cisco’s Spark, each solution is built to address individual problems with business communication. Bolste, however, takes a different approach, utilizing business messaging and collaboration tools to make it easier for companies to align, manage and track outcomes— all in one app, with substantial cost savings.
“Bolste, based in Scottsdale, is making a difference in the ESN market by focusing on work
outcomes instead of just collaboration,” the report, authored by Jim Lundy, states. “Bolste has been gaining traction in enterprises and SMBs because of its approach to work and the fact that it combines many of the individual work and social tools needed today into one offering.”
The analysis goes on to highlight Bolste’s focus on mobile and its integration into its daily activity feeds, used for real time collaboration with customers and partners.
“Bolste combines file sharing, email, task management, video collaboration, and corporate calendars into a single interface,” the report continues. “All of these capabilities combined make Bolste a new modern Work Platform that is poised to take on and replace existing ESN
