Victoria, Canada – StratPad, the world’s top-rated strategy and business planning app for iPad, today announced integration between StratPad products and Yammer, a best-in-class Enterprise Social Network and part of the Microsoft Office Division. With this integration, management teams using StratPad can collaborate to create their strategic business plan and share reports online through Yammer with confidence given Yammer’s built-in security features. StratPad is the first iPad app to offer Yammer integration to its customers.
“The StratPad-Yammer integration radically transforms the business planning process by moving online collaboration out of email and directly into StratPad and Yammer,” said StratPad CEO Alex Glassey. “All planning discussions are part of Yammer’s security-enhanced system, become context-sensitive and are automatically organized by topic and team. This virtually eliminates email clutter and frees up more time for actual planning.”
Management teams using StratPad create Yammer groups to organize their business planning process. They can discuss and share StratPad reports instantly with a group; subsequent online conversations are automatically organized by group and attached to each report. StratPad generates nine reports, including a business plan, a strategy map, financial projections, and a Gantt chart. Charts and graphs of key performance indicators, tracked by StratPad’s business intelligence dashboard, can also be posted to a group on Yammer.
“StratPad’s vision is to help small and medium-sized business owners and managers think, plan, and manage differently,” said Glassey. “Our integration with Yammer supports that vision and takes collaborative business planning a significant step forward.”
Jim Patterson, Yammer’s chief product officer, said, “By integrating with leading business applications that companies rely on to be successful, Yammer adds a conversation layer that enhances productivity and boosts collaboration in organizations of all sizes. The StratPad-Yammer integration is an excellent example that strengthens the business planning process.”
