Spigit Announces API Platform that Enables Existing Enterprise Collaboration Tools and Social Communities to Discover and Rank New Ideas

    Spigit introduces plug-and-play APIs to instantly extract winning ideas
    across any and all types of enterprise communications

    PLEASANTON, Calif., June 24 /CNW/ -- Spigit, the award winning enterprise
social software company, today announced the release of a full set of
Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that can plug into existing
enterprise collaboration tools and social networks. As companies embrace a
wide variety of communication tools, it is becoming increasingly more
difficult to separate the signal from the noise in order to identify the best
ideas and the most influential contributors. Spigit's API enables existing
enterprise collaboration tools and online networks to effectively filter the
noise, and identify quality contributions, good ideas, and key contributors.
    "Conversations are happening continuously throughout the enterprise - on
customer portals, company wikis, CRM systems, social networks," said Paul
Pluschkell, CEO and founder of Spigit. "Spigit's APIs allow companies to
capture and quantify interactions to identify the most relevant ideas and
contributors from any of these tools, without having to deploy yet another
social platform or application. Managers can extract real value from the
conversations that take place every day."
    Spigit's APIs are the core technology behind Spigit's award-winning
IdeaSpigit platform, and feature RepURank (for Reputation Management),
IdeaRank (for evaluating ideas and content) technologies as well as Spigit's
robust Currency Management System.  Spigit's APIs are modularized and designed
to integrate with any internal or external communication systems, including:

    -- Enterprise Collaboration Tools and Social Networks
    -- Web 2.0 Technologies
    -- Review and Voting Systems
    -- Message Boards
    -- Content Management Systems
    -- Survey and Polling Systems
    -- CRM Applications
    -- Tagging Systems
    -- Idea Management Systems
    Companies can leverage Spigit's APIs for existing features, while at the
same time providing new interactive features such as voting, review
mechanisms, reputation assignment, currency distribution and rankings. Most
importantly, Spigit produces hundreds of metrics and a statistical breakdown
that can be provided on a single or series of management dashboards.
    The Spigit API has been successfully used to power IdeaSpigit and
InnovationSpigit products for several Fortune 500 Customers.  It supports SAML
single sign-on and LDAP integration, and offers REST, SOAP, and JAVA based
