  • Deeply connecting individuals in productive, efficient ways

  • Providing line of sight across traditional boundaries and better aligning actions to needs

  • Speeding up business with insight to anticipate and address evolving opportunities

The service is available in 3 versions for standard configurations: Connections, Engage Advanced and Engage Standard.  Users can select the solution that fits your business needs. Stand-alone services such as Meetings, Notes and iNotes can also be purchased.  A great benefit for IBM CloudSmart Docs is that mobile apps for accessing files are available with all of the plans. This feature allows people to be more efficient anytime, anywhere, on any mobile device.

With integrated applications such as Salesforce for Customer Relationship Management or Skype and Ariba for Community & Collaboration, extension of your social business capabilities is guaranteed.

CloudSmart Docs will most likely be biting into Google Docs and Microsoft 365’s market share, it is just a matter of time.
