Press release from: Live Software Solutions

/ PR Agency: Bob Little Press & PR
Live Software Solutions (LSS), a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner which develops and delivers software, has helped OI Software to perfect its exciting new product, nGage. nGage is a rich, social application that integrates specifically with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007, using and extending SharePoint's core functionality to transform the user’s intranet into a platform for universal employee engagement.

nGage with SharePoint enables, measures and celebrates:
• Leaders and managers being inclusive in inviting everyone in their team to be part of the solution to a challenge.
• People who enjoy making a difference.
• People who like to share their knowledge and their ideas.
• People who will always go that ‘extra mile’ when a colleague, partner or customer needs help.

Moreover, said OI Software’s CEO, Paul Henry: “It spreads this behaviour virally, around user organisations - even to the most cynical of individuals. nGage also gives leaders and managers powerful new tools to monitor and drive organisational, departmental, team and individual performance.”

James Boother, LSS’s Managing Director, explained: “OI Software had initially outsourced the development of this software to India but, for various reasons, it decided to bring the project back to the UK and contacted LSS.”

“Although our charges were – perhaps reassuringly – higher than those of the Indian software house, we allowed OI Software to bring nGage to market on schedule,” said LSS’s technical director, Mike Goatly.

OI Software’s CTO, Pete Denness, commented: “We initially engaged Indian software developers who did a good job getting the project started but, when we needed high quality, sophisticated user interface work added to the project, we turned to software development specialists LSS.”

nGage transforms SharePoint 2007–based intranets into measurably dynamic behavioural, communication, knowledge and talent management hubs. It does this by extending SharePoint’s out-of-the-box functionality with highly viral social networking features and rich support for generating and capturing ideas and innovation.

It then tracks every relevant use of SharePoint - such as checking in a document, publishing a blog and contributing to a discussion - as well as in nGage’s proprietary functionality, such as giving feedback; questions and answers; submitting an idea; rating someone else’s idea, and so on. This data is then available to be aggregated, analysed and published to the individual's 'My Profile' - defining that person’s reputation as an 'engaged employee' within her/his organisation.

Henry added: “Driving employee engagement is at the heart of how organisational intelligence – the ‘OI’ in ‘OI Software’ – can be captured and mined. Having been continually developing nGage for some time – latterly with help from LSS - we now believe that nGage is unique in driving and measuring employee engagement.”
