Yammer (www.yammer.com) is an Enterprise Social Network that brings together employees, content, conversations, and business data in a single location. Built for the entrprise and loved by users, Yammer empowers employees to be more productive by enabling them to collaborate in real-time across departments, geographies, and business applications. Employees can create groups to collaborate on projects and share and edit documents. It is a new way of working that fosters team collaboration, employee engagement, and business transformation.

The service can be accessed through the web, desktop, and mobile devices including iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone, Android, and Blackberry, enabling a “virtual office” that employees can plug into while on-the-go. Additionally, Yammer can be easily integrated with other systems such as Microsoft SharePoint, creating a social layer across all enterprise applications.

With a Freemium model, Yammer enables employees to voluntarily adopt the service. A premium version is available to paying customers and includes additional administrative and security controls, integration with other applications, priority customer service, and a dedicated customer success manager. More than 5 million users, including employees from 85 percent of the Fortune 500, have adopted Yammer’s Software-as-a-Service solution.
