    Zyncro brings together 350 executives at ComunicaTE Madrid to discuss Enterprise Social Networks 

    Estimated reading time + video: 8 minutes

    On Monday, May 6, we gathered at Casa de América for ComunicaTE Madrid 2013, the sixth edition of our Master Class for Executives at which we discussed Enterprise Social Networks and integrated communications.

    During the day, with almost 350 attendees, 10 speakers, and thanks to the support of our 13 partners, we had a chance to reflect and analyze with top-class professionals and speakers the transformation processes in companies that already understand the benefits of being social organizations and that have successfully implemented social strategies to transform their business processes.

    After a brief introduction and welcome by Lluís Font, CEO at Zyncro, and Patricia Fernández, VP Marketing at Zyncro, we started the master class where we discussed the benefits of social business collaboration, the ROI of social business tools, the latest trends in management 2.0, and looked at real case studies of social companies.

    ‘Strategic vision of social software and integrated communication in Telefónica’ with Carlos Rabazo, Telefónica Key Accounts

    Carlos spoke about a change in the communication model in people, where social networks have become the channel preferred by a large part of the population, and how these new communication channels can also be applied to communications within companies. According to Rabazo, it has been shown that social networks are a favorable environment for working and sharing, and now the challenge has been set to export the use of these communication systems to the business environment.

    ‘Integrating Systems in Companies from a Social Perspective’ with Francisco Gracia, Manager at everis

    Francisco gave us some interesting information. 93% of internet users use social networks; 65% of users have contacted a company through social networks, and 25% have interacted with companies through this channel. This data shows that social technologies form part of our daily lives and companies must recognize this fact. This means they need to align these tools with the company’s strategy and there must be greater collaboration between IT and business.

    ‘Reinventing the Company in Consumerization. Mobile Technologies in Enterprise Social Networks’ with Juan Polo, EMEA Enterprise Client Marketing Manager at Intel

    Juan spoke about the growing importance of mobility and its major penetration in almost all sectors. This mobility provides benefits and differentiation for companies in terms of information accessibility, the incorporation of new applications, speed in decision-making, and the optimization of resources. Employees require more mobile devices and this, together with the Bring Your Own Device trends, require organizations to opt for mobile apps. Juan explained how Intel does it with its own architecture and Windows 8, responding to business requirements.

    Success stories with Zyncro

    During the rest of the afternoon, several success stories were presented of companies that have integrated their technology with Zyncro with excellent results. Joaquim Segura, CEO at Captio, presented their tool to attendees as an option to improve productivity with a mobile, social and cloud-based app.

    Antonio Ramírez, Product Marketing & Business Development Manager at Konica Minolta, gave the key ideas to social document management in the cloud thanks to its integration with Enterprise Social Networks.

    Sonia Ruiz Moreno, CEO at PrideCom, advanced some of the main ideas of the ‘Zyncro method’, a method designed to guide companies that want to implement an Enterprise Social Network in their organization and whose first output was the whitepaper ‘How to Convince Your Boss’.

    Finally, three projects developed with Zyncro were presented. Rosa María Martínez, M2M Business Development Manager at Telefónica, explained the development and operation of the APP ON project for Telefónica Latin America, now also available for Windows 8; Arantxa Martínez, Director of Organization and Systems at The EatOut Group, traced their journey from the idea to the roll out of the Enterprise Social Network for their employees; and Eva Collado, HR Development Manager at Venca, closed the session by talking about the benefits achieved with the implementation of an internal network in their organization.

    Zyncro Germany: IntraNET Reloaded 2013 

    Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

    Broadcasting to Collaboration” was the motto of the conference IntraNET Reloaded 2013 in Berlin on April 26 and 27.

    Participants talked about strategic approaches and challenges regarding intranet 2.0 management, as well as social business solutions – and, of course, Zyncro couldn’t miss this event.

    Various case studies and small, focused discussion groups analyzed current topics, new approaches and future trends. The hot keywords included intranet findability, digital workplace, intranet usability, user acceptance rate, intranet governance, teamwork and employee engagement, mobile applications, use of social software, and knowledge management.

    The participants included Max Lund from Corporate Communications (CCO) at the Hamburg Süd Group who spoke about how to simultaneously globalize and localize an organization’s intranet in order to respond to both global and local needs. Thomas Olsen, Assistant Vice President at Deutsche Bank AG, discussed cooperation and how to cultivate it in different scenarios ranging from isolated work groups to company-wide digital platforms. Lluís Font, CEO at Zyncro Tech S.L., described 10 current trends in enterprise social networks 2.0, focusing on adaptation strategies and motivating the different types of personalities usually present in every company to use their organization’s intranet 2.0.

    At the more intimate World Café Sessions, participants gathered in 8 small groups for 30 minutes each before moving on to the next group. They discussed solutions for the different challenges organizations that frequently face when implementing business social software. Discussion topics included “Painless migration of corporate networks”, moderated by Chris Corbett, Communications Specialist at Zurich Insurance Company Ltd, Management and evolution of a socially connected company: kick off, road map, and fields of application, moderated by Philipp Rosenthal, Head of Principal Consulting & Research at Infocentric Research AG, and “Analyzing the level of integration of social business tools within a company: Total vs. selective work processes”, discussed by Kelli Carlson-Jagersma, Vice President of Enterprise Internal Collaboration at Wells Fargo Inc. and Darius Miranda, Vice President of Social Business Strategy at Wells Fargo Inc.

    At their booth, Zyncro were able to present themselves as a successful IntraNET Reloaded business partner. They spoke to a large number of participants, exchanged experiences, asked and answered questions, and discussed Zyncro’s vision, as well as the opportunities and possibilities of social networks and social business 2.0. There was a rich and vivid exchange of ideas such as:

    “A change in the way we communicate results changes the way we work together”, Dennis Agusi, Global Internal Communications Officer, Philips Inc.


    “Intranet 2.0 and social business are not just about technology, but first and foremost about their users”, Christian Schmidt, Country Manager DACH, Zyncro.

    The event spawned inspiration and new ideas regarding the evolution of the digital workplace and made many participants realize that, often, it is better to focus on the journey rather than the destination: A change in corporate culture from unilateral, mostly top-down communication to a multilateral exchange of information via social networks in order to solve problems, provide faster customer service and thus increase productivity. Enterprise social networks are not just one more tool among many others, but can integrate different existing corporate solutions thus creating a social sphere and adding value.

    IntraNET Reloaded brought an international audience interested in intranets and communication 2.0 to Berlin and provided them with a platform to share knowledge and discuss the most important industry trends. A perfect example for connectivity and cooperation in the field of social business 2.0.
