StatusNet Revolutionizes Motorola's Internal Communications
Montreal, Wednesday, July 7 2010 - Technology innovator Motorola has successfully rolled out of its own StatusNet-based social messaging network, MotMot, across its entire organization. StatusNet Inc has developed a case study with Motorola to help other enterprises understand how social messaging can help their business.
"Motorola's launch of MotMot has shown the great power of using StatusNet inside of a corporation at enterprise-scale," says Evan Prodromou, CEO and founder of StatusNet.
Rami Levy, Motorola's team leader of Open Source Technologies, says in the case study, "One unexpected benefit [of using StatusNet] is a reduction in company email. We initially just wanted to increase social communication and such in the company. As the value became obvious and usage grew, we decided to leverage this to reduce corporate email volume.”
Motorola also uses its MotMot system to keep its teams up-to-date with changes in product lines or projects. "A lot of people appreciate the ability to monitor, as needed, relevant channels or subject areas using StatusNet," says Levy.
