CubeTree may be the death of Post-it notes

cubetree.pngThese days employers aren’t just facing writer’s cramp from filling out pink slips. They also face a tangled Web of technology concerns and questions.

For example, should associates be allowed to use Facebook at work? Should coworkers be discouraged from overflowing each other’s email boxes?

CubeTree’s enterprise collaboration suite, which launched in early May, is infused with social networking elements and looks a lot like Facebook – but provides the restrictor plate of business context. Who’s going to post naughty photos where co-workers are the only ones looking?

CubeTree allows users to connect profiles, sych up with work wikis, post and access org charts, follow co-workers and make to-do lists. You can also aggregate feeds from workplace peers and post your own.

The point of this all is to streamline communication. Instead of sending out 15 emails or churning through company ink and paper, CubeTree is high-tech biz hub that alleviates writer’s cramp and Outlook headaches. It also enables cross-functional functional collaboration; Bob from accounting and Kent in creative might never have a meeting together, but might incubate a pet project together that could save the company millions when they hook up on Cubetree.

CubeTree’s main competitors include Yammer, Jive and Socialtext, and looks to separate itself from the pack of enterprise partners through its savvy tracking ability and continuous weekly upgrades.

The service runs from $3 to $5 a month per user, and comes in Basic, Professional and Enterprise editions.

    Title of your article was Present.ly's sales presentation title to us back in October when we decided to implement a microblogging tool (for the enterprise) in our workplace. Present.ly's analogy was with “post-its” and how their tool can replace postits at the workplace.

    As a reader, I would appreciate unique ideas or at least some sort of source credit. Thanks!

    $60/user for something that competes with free Yammer sounds ridiculous.

    Craig,

    Thanks for the great write-up. This area of communication is rapidly innovating and we are excited to be thoroughly in the thick of creating applications on a social network. I'm looking forward to getting getting more of your thoughts as we roll out our next wave of features.
