AroundThen has released a new version of their app which integrates with Chatter, to help drive collaboration and interaction within Corporate Enterprises through users being able to interact with others in their immediate proximity using their Chatter credentials.
Using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), the AroundThen app helps to facilitate secure networking between employees at internal events, meetings and within everyday working lives, extending the use and adoption of Enterprise Social Networks.
It is especially useful in large Enterprises where there may be a culture of remote-working, 'hot-desking' or large internal meetings. The app enables employees to easily view, follow and instant message other users close by, helping to avoid silo-working. They can also check-in to their location and share across social media
