Near-Time Adds Social Networking to Its Collaborative Solution

Near-Time (, an Enterprise 2.0 hosted collaboration service, announced the availability of comprehensive social networking functionality for the Near-Time platform, including a member interest engine, community-level dashboard, and advanced search facilities. These capabilities are built on an integrated platform that now marries the best of social networking functionality to an organization’s collaborative workspaces.

With this major update, business professionals can now create, collaborate, discover, and engage with customers, partners, and co-workers in a unified collaboration solution. Near-Time’s on-demand delivery model allows community managers and members to immediately leverage these new social networking features in their collaborative spaces. They can then create networks of communities, linking to other users and groups across Near-Time-enabled organizations and institutions, based on their interests, profiles, and needs. The platform update also offers improved search functionality, the ability to tag interests and users, new member profiling features, integration with Google Maps, and richer group calendaring.

Near-Time is priced between $1,000 and $5,000 per community, depending on the size of the community. The company says that Near-Time communities can be deployed within minutes, delivering high utility and low total cost of ownership when compared with other collaboration solutions.
