Press release from: Telligent Systems, Inc

/ PR Agency: Power Public Releations
Telligent, a leader in social community software, is positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant in the ‘Magic Quadrant for Externally Facing Social Software’ (1) report.

Gartner includes vendors in the Visionaries quadrant based upon completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“When it comes to external facing communities, our vision and innovation is reflected best in our customers,” said Telligent Founder and CTO Rob Howard. “We don’t see external facing social software as features, but as an evolution for how businesses can connect more deeply and intimately with their customers with a well-defined purpose. In 2004, when Telligent was founded, no one else was building integrated community software. Innovation is in our DNA and we will continue to push the boundaries to enable our customers and partners to be successful.”

According to Gartner, “[p]roducts in the EFSS market support external teaming, communities and networking where most participants are outside the enterprise (for example, customers, affiliates, alumni, developers, members, contractors, partners, trainees and resellers). Buyers seek general-purpose, persistent virtual environments in which participants can create, organize and share content, as well as collaborate, organize activities, socialize, and develop or exploit social relationships, both with each other and with the hosting organization.” (1)

“We believe this report amplifies the importance of building online communities to engage your customers, partners and members,” said Wendy Gibson, CMO of Telligent. “Our experience proves that online engagement trumps one-way communication and static marketing messages. Telligent customers support mission-critical online communities that enhance customer support, sales, marketing, networking opportunities and crisis communication.”

Telligent is positioned in the Visionaries quadrant in three recent reports from Gartner related to community software, including the ‘Magic Quadrant for Social Software in the Workplace’ (2) and ‘Magic Quadrant for Social CRM’ (3).
