Socialtext announced today that it has partnered with MTCSC to resell its social networking applications under the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) schedule, where federal agencies can purchase the products for a discounted price. Socialtext's technology will help federal organizations eliminate information and knowledge silos by providing them with secure social software that makes their business processes more flexible and enhances collaboration between employees.
MTCSC Program Manager, Drew Bouloy, says, “Socialtext collaboration technology is a powerful way to harness the power of social networking across an organization. It’s really exciting that we’ll be able to service our federal and Department of Defense (DoD) customers with the same technology that has helped MTCSC transform itself into an agile engineering force.”
The partnership between MTCSC and Socialtext will enable MTCSC to offer a collaboration suite of products for DoD organizations that have not been available until now.
"MTCSC's exceptional track record in working with federal agencies makes them a perfect partner and reseller for Socialtext," says Eugene Lee, Socialtext's CEO. "More and more, government agencies have turned to our enterprise social software platform to make their people more collaborative, and ultimately serve their constituents more efficiently."
The partnership follows Socialtext's success in the government sector. Socialtext has customers from local, state, federal and foreign government entities, both civilian and defense. Many of these government customers prefer Socialtext's on-premises, SaaS appliance, which brings these social applications behind the firewall to meet their stringent security requirements.
Socialtext addresses the critical issues organizations face as their people and teams struggle for better ways to share knowledge, ideas and expertise. With Socialtext's enterprise social software platform, people and teams are synchronized, highly engaged and able to move fast. The Socialtext collaboration platform employs a broad set of social software technologies including microblogging, social networking, filtered activity streams, widget-based dashboards, blogs and wikis. Socialtext offers both the convenience of SaaS and the security of an on-site appliance, for the fastest time to value. More than 6,500 businesses world-wide have accelerated their business performance with Socialtext, including Getty Images, Oxford University Press, Meredith Corporation, OSIsoft, Symantec, The Washington Post, and Epitaph Records.
