We've created bCommunities, a disruptively efficient online platform that enables businesses to powerfully and securely interconnect their operations with their clients and suppliers in minutes. Features silo-bursting project management, communications, CRM and microblogging while fostering best practices and accountability.
WHAT DOES IT FIX?
Currently, email continues to be the only easy-to-adopt technology able to interconnect companies and teams as they need to work with each other. But email offers out of context interactions and it poses great challenges to transactional collaboration.
Complex ERP and industry-specific solutions are much needed systems of control within companies but only the few can afford the expense and effort it takes to successfully implement them. It is only with additional expensive integrations that these companies can interconnect their operations with other high value partners.
SaaS applications have provided successful solutions for team-based project collaboration and CRM by taking traditional desktop solutions to the cloud. Unfortunately, they have failed to offer solid and secure inter-company platforms where b2b interactions respect basic confidentiality and work engagements best practices. Also, the common “workspace” approach is not well suited for engaging external partners in an easy and transactional manner that generates useful audit trails for future reference by all involved parties.
In most scenarios the external partners do not own the data they generate in the exchange as they can only participate with a login and password provided by the hosting partner. So these solutions cannot be used as passive systems of control for all partners involved.
bCommunities is a Secure B2B Collaboration Platform that provides a disruptive approach to interconnect your business with its ecosystem in a compelling and immediate way. It is the materialization of what some have come to call “Business Interaction Management”, a much needed evolution from traditional Business Process Management (BPM) tools.
It shatters silo inefficiencies in a secure, integrated, transactional, easy and affordable way through interconnected:
• Project portfolio management
• Task workflow automation
• Document versioning and delivery
• Resource assignments and opportunities, acceptance and follow up control
• Integrated walled communications and email integration
• Social-like invitations to connect and to assign tasks to others
• CRM integrated to production and communications
• Internal ratings and comments on clients and providers
• Internal and External microblogging
• Internal security roles
