How to activate a numeric partner’s network ?
SUN Microsystem is a company of more than 33.000 people around the world that provides IT products for software servers.
SUN leads a technological program for startups. In 16 month this initiative has created a community of 200 innovative companies.
SUN wanted to develop in the web the exchanges between the members of a community.
SUN chose Jamespot.pro as a communication platform for its community.
Implementing the solution
The OSS community has been decomposed as follows: 1 administrator whose role is to add new users and preside over the debates; 8 SSEE "Sun Startup Essentials Evangelist” whose role is to animate the spots and serve as referents; and 200 users: the community members. The steps to implement the solution were the following:
- Name definition / colors/ theme
- Spot/users selection (Excel)
- Service presentation to the OSS
- Launching evening
The implementation didn’t take more than one month between the first meeting with SUN and the launching evening.
- The platform creates a link between its members
- The use is simple. Everyone can help increasing its visibility
- The information circulates faster. Decisions are taken more rapidly
- Each member can put forward his know-how
- The platform boosts business, not only for SUN but for its members too.
