September 18, 2018

CHICAGO, Sept. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rightpoint, an independent customer experience agency with technology at its core, today announces the launch of Spark Workspace, a Rightpoint accelerator designed to enable customers to quickly launch a world-class digital collaboration environment for today’s modern workforce.

The needs of today’s workforce have changed and employees are hungry for state of the art tools to work more efficiently and better serve customers. Enabled by technology and the desire for innovation, employers are designing digital workspaces that are personalized for employees – providing quick access to critical information while simultaneously generating high levels of engagement.

Users of Spark Workspace benefit from Rightpoint’s extensive experience in developing digital workspace solutions for over one million users in over one thousand project roll outs. The accelerator makes it possible for companies to create dynamic digital experiences for employees and transition away from stale and outdated corporate intranets.

The accelerator offers robust capabilities including personalized communication with contextual social integration, intuitive Search and Findability features, taxonomy-driven content management, simple and powerful content tools and more. The faster time to market offers an accelerated build that fits your brand, identity and unique requirements. Ideal for new digital workspaces and legacy migrations, as it’s scalable from small businesses to global enterprises, Spark Workspace is powered by Office 365 and built in SharePoint Modern – meaning users will leverage Microsoft’s latest and greatest technology.

“We went through a transformational global acquisition in 2017 which required us to build a new associate intranet on a platform that would be flexible enough to reach our 25,000 global associates and also continue to grow with us,” said Chris Son, Vice President – Marketing & Communications, American Axle & Manufacturing (AAM). “We chose Rightpoint as our partner provider because they understood that a ‘one size fits all’ approach wouldn’t work for us. The combination of Rightpoint’s premier partnership with Microsoft, access to SharePoint Modern technology and Rightpoint’s expertise in product and process delivery helped us to build and launch a new and meaningful digital workspace that’s interactive and easy to use—as both a consumer of content and a backend user of Spark. This is essential for today’s modern workforce, and we’re proud of the end result.”

Spark Workspace increases employee engagement and collaboration through customizable tools, including:

-- Content Management: Create diverse and engaging content with templates, flexible taxonomies and over 70+ pre-configured SharePoint web parts -- Search & Findability: Intuitive functionality empowers users to find content even if they don’t know where to look -- Social Engagement: Drive employee engagement via contextual and integrated social experiences with personalized content, social badging for employee recognition and more -- Communication: Personalize communication and provide easy access to knowledge, information and people -- Knowledge Center: Support the creation, curation and consumption of critical information across the enterprise

“People are the lifeblood of an organization. It’s not only crucial to meet the needs of your customers, but also to meet your employee needs,” said Jeremy Williams, Senior Director, Productivity & Collaboration at Rightpoint. “An effective digital workspace allows employees to work more efficiently, better serve customers, experience higher levels of engagement and gain quicker access to critical information. We designed Spark Workspace to help organizations solve complex business challenges and avoid common pitfalls and challenges to guide them to the correct remediation – resulting in a successful launch and adoption of your workspace.”
