HyveWorks Looks to Make Business More Collaborative and Social

With the recent economic downturn, companies have started to look for ways to be more efficient and get the most out of their employees.  This includes changing how employees work and collaborate with one another through the adoption of “Enterprise 2.0” systems that promote rapid information sharing and collaboration.  One of the companies trying to push the shift to Enterprise 2.0 is Austin-based HyveWorks.

HyveWorks has developed what it calls “a suite of collaboration and innovation tools for business.” These services are designed much like many of the social networking sites most of us use daily. The tools in the Hyveworks suite are designed to help businesses achieve organizational awareness, individual engagement, and collective intelligence.

The “organizational awareness” tool allows connections to be made across an entire company or department, enabling employees who might not normally work together to connect and share ideas with one another. The “individual engagement” tool boosts morale and productivity by making employees feel that their contributions matter.  Finally, “collective intelligence” brings everything together by helping a business harness the power of a well-connected and engaged work force to bring new ideas to the table and promote innovation.

Hyveworks comes in two flavors: a hosted version for smaller companies and an enterprise solution that can be hosted on site for larger ones.  The services also can be integrated with Microsoft SharePoint.

Hyveworks is a 2010 SXSW Accelerator and will be showcased at the TECH cocktail SXSW: Blackout Sunday event, presented by Microsoft BizSpark and Volusion.
