I recently implemented a collaboration tool ...DRE Software's BCN (Business Collaboration Network) which I have found to be a very powerful and user friendly tool that enables our sales and marketing teams to collaborate with current customers, prospects and our partners in our secure, personalized work space. I quickly realized we had more uses for the tool then originally planned once we started using it compared to the tools we were using. The BCN filled this void by allowing us to create discussion forums for prospects, customers and in special circumstances we put them together to enhance the sale, the virtual whiteboards and file libraries and messaging with internal team members, customers and prospects. We all now have better and clearer insight into customer relationships so we can forecast future revenue with better precision. We set it up in about 10 minutes and started using it immediately compared to the long and difficult implementations I have found with other tools.

Our business partners love it because it's a great way to keep them up to date with a library of up to date resources and it has enhanced communication on the deals we are working on. Our teams are able to work together as a Team what a concept. In other words we keep finding more ways to use the BCN since our free trial. That's right they gave us a free trial! Worth a try .... and sets up fast! We used no IT resources!!

We found it much easier to use than sharepoint and quicker to implement They recently added the ability to customize our spaces allowing our users to create personally branded spaces. Later this summer they also plan to add web conferencing capabilities which will be a big cost savings for us along with the benefit of having the tools all in one place.
