Informative Graphics Corporation (IGC), a leader in viewing, collaboration and redaction technology today announced an integration that will provide a more powerful collaborative document review experience for Yammer users. IGC and Yammer are demoing the integration at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California (IGC Booth #252).
Yammer users will be able to open a document in IGC’s Brava! viewer from their enterprise content management system and add comments at specific locations within the document. The comments can then be pushed to the user’s Yammer feed with a link to the document in the repository for further collaboration. To ensure document security and integrity, Brava never alters the original document, only sending an encrypted rendition to the user’s workstation.
When subsequent users view an edited document, the corresponding Yammer thread is displayed in Brava, ensuring reviewers see all comments and discussions related to the document. Both Brava and Yammer are designed to work securely within the enterprise, so the solution ensures content stays secure and compliance objectives are met. There is no need to email potentially sensitive documents and no concerns about old document versions in circulation.
“This partnership seamlessly combines IGC’s secure document viewing with Yammer’s leading-edge collaboration capabilities for the true benefit of the enterprise. It allows today’s users — who are comfortable with social media tools — to work more efficiently on documents while still maintaining corporate compliance standards,” said Jeff Herding, vice president of sales at IGC.
“Our open API enables innovative companies like IGC to integrate any resource on the web into the Yammer Social Graph, making it easier to discover, track and collaborate on relevant business data,” said David Stewart, vice president of platform at Yammer. “We are excited to be demoing this integration at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference with them and improving the way everyone works and collaborates.”
