ThoughtFarmer, a program that utilizes social networking principles to improve office productivity and collaboration, has released a new version of their flagship software.
Vancouver-based ThoughtFarmer, which calls itself “the first social intranet software solution,” says this latest version, 4.0, is about getting back to basics.
“I like Twitter and Facebook as much as the next person,” says Darren Gibbons, president and co-creator of ThoughtFarmer. “But Twitter isn’t going to help you complete your budget spreadsheet or collaborate on a proposal. For that, you need great document handling features, which our new release has in spades.”
Document sharing capabilities are the major highlight, allowing staff to collaboratively edit proposals, contracts, budgets, drawings and images. The software integrates with Microsoft Word, SharePoint and Adobe Acrobat to allow easy document creation; copy-and-pasting from Word to ThoughtFarmer retains the original Word formatting, and Acrobat documents are created with one click from any ThoughtFarmer document.
