Dallas, TX – October 2, 2012 — Telligent, a leading provider of social community software for the enterprise, today announced that it is recognized by Gartner, Inc. as a Visionary in the ‘Magic Quadrant for Social Software in the Workplace’ (1) report.

Gartner states that the ‘Magic Quadrant for Social Software in the Workplace’ “covers vendors whose software products are used mainly within enterprises, primarily by employees but also by external customers, suppliers and partners, to support work teams, communities and social networking.” Key considerations for the recognition include a company’s completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“We are thrilled to be recognized as a Visionary by Gartner,” said Megan Yunker, VP Marketing of Telligent. “Our central aim is to help our customers, such as Dell, Microsoft and Investec, build online communities that help them accomplish their business objectives. We view this report as affirmation of the value that social software brings to businesses as well as Telligent’s focus on delivering exceptional customer experiences.”

Gartner states that “in general terms, products that compete in this market help users:
• Find out about each other personally or professionally
• Mine their networks of contacts and acquaintances for advice, references and referrals
• Form teams, communities or informal groups, and invite external participants from other organizations
• Work together on the same work objects
• Discuss and comment on their work
• Organize work from their perspective
• Identify relevant work
• Discover other people with common interests” (1)

According to Gartner, “business use of these products varies in its degree of formality and openness — from information sharing and project coordination within a small, homogeneous group, to the sharing of best practices within a business unit, to the encouragement of networking and information exchange between employees across a whole organization or with external participants in other organizations.” (1)

“Social is the new normal – people expect social capabilities to help them collaborate with their co-workers and connect with timely knowledge,” said Telligent Founder and CTO Rob Howard. “Our vision is to unite the workplace through our social platform and help employees be more productive.”

Telligent recently closed its fiscal year on July 31, 2012. The year was highlighted by a significant increase in new customers and partners, growth in new markets throughout Asia Pacific, the acquisition of Leverage software and new product releases.
