Be gone, irritating chain email about a fake virus scare that your head of HR sent out! Away, pictures of a random offsite meeting that no one actually cares about! Never again will your inbox show 298324 because everyone replied all on a staff-wide email about break room etiquette!
We decided to integrate with Yammer because we believe the communities of co-workers and colleagues in the enterprise being formed on the Yammer platform deserve a better mechanism for sharing relevant, value-adding content with their teams and with each other than email currently offers, thereby facilitating greater and more meaningful exchanges of knowledge with one another.
Enterprise knowledge sharing is becoming more and more important to stay ahead of the curve and keep up with smaller, more agile teams. Relevant breaking industry news and brand new ideas can help employees work, sell, and manage their resources more effectively. Smart does have a ROI and it can be accelerated through better knowledge management systems.
Scoop.it for Yammer allows professionals to communicate across teams and easily source and share great content — enriched with their own unique insight — to supercharge their Yammer feed, sparking better communication and idea sharing among co-workers.
To use, simply sign in to Scoop.it or sign up for a free Scoop.it account, create a topic, and attach your Yammer account through the Scoop.it sharing options. Then scroll through your suggested content, select an article to share, edit to include your expert opinion, and share to all your social profiles, including your Yammer account, in one click. Or, when you find a piece of interesting content anywhere on the web, simply use the Scoop.it bookmarklet to share any content from anywhere with your Yammer feed.
We’re very excited to be able to integrate with a great company like Yammer and push great content and unique perspectives into the enterprise, where they are definitely needed.
