    How to integrate Zyncro with just about anything 

    Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

    ZyncroToday I’d like to explain how to integrate the Business microblogging account of Zyncro… with just about anything. Yes, and I mean anything!!!

    Anything that is capable of generating RSS or sending an email can be integrated with Zyncro. So in other words, that means almost all the services that there has been or will be on the Internet, even perhaps the tools you use each day in your company.

    Of course, with Zyncro by using the API, you can develop integrations that go to another level, enabling you to create users, manage groups, send invitations, etc.

    But integration via RSS and email is much easier to integrate with any system quickly.

    Let’s look at some examples of integrations:

    linkedin

    See your LinkedIn feed in Zyncro

    • Select the group in Zyncro which you want to post this information. It can be a group you already share or you can create a new one, just for you, or invite other people. It all depends on who you want to see this LinkedIn information you’ll integrate.
    • Go to http://www.linkedin.com/rssAdmin?display= and generate the RSS of all the updates in your network of contacts.
    • In the Zyncro group, on the sidebar, there’s an option to “Add a feed subscription.” Copy the URL of the RSS you want to integrate there.

    emailSend information by email to Zyncro

    • Create a new user in Zyncro. Give that user the name of the tool you want to integrate and use the logo as the profile photo.
    • Create a group in Zyncro and invite your usual user (and whoever else you want too) to that group.
    • Using the new user you have created, in the group you’ll see an email address on the sidebar to which you can send microblogging messages. The attachments you send will also be uploaded to Zyncro!

    Follow a user in Twitter

    twitter

    Follow a topic or a hash tag in Twitter

    RSSRead news about a topic from Zyncro

    • In Google News http://news.google.com you can search for news, filter it, configure it by language and many other options to refine the search. When you have finished refining the search and what you see on screen is what you want to see in Zyncro, go to the bottom of the page and you’ll find a button there to generate the RSS.

    Follow what is being said about a topic on the web

    • First in your Google account settings, https://accounts.google.com/b/0/EditUserInfo add the email address of the group, as I explained before. You’ll receive a confirmation email that you’ll see directly on the Zyncro wall, with a link. Click on it to confirm the account.
    • Then in http://www.google.com/alerts generate alerts for the topics you want and configure them so news is sent to the email you have added.

    google

    Financial Information

    Follow the status of your servers

    • Using Pingdom you can monitor the status of any system in your company and see its availability. You can configure it so that you are sent an email any time the service is down. Use the email account of your group to see it in Zyncro. What’s more you can post the graphs generated in AddZyngs.

    Which social networks should an enterprise social network be integrated with? 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

    Zyncro‘s evolution as a product involves a definition phase of requirements for the new functions that will be included in each new version of the application.  Customer and user requests,  the established roadmap for product development, the network and 2.0 environment reality applied to the business environment are all taken into account during the process.

    Bearing these three factors in mind, the next Zyncro evolution, version 3.1, is aimed towards better integration with other social networks from a corporate perspective, among other features.

    The preview of version 3.0, in which the company and departments sections have been developed within the social intranet, will be in line with the connection with the world 2.0 found outside those corporate systems but that still form a part of the complete structure of an organization.

    Given the number of integrations already developed:

    and thanks to the flourish of social networks as a corporate communication channel, here at R&D in Zyncro we feel it is necessary to integrate our platform with new 2.0 channels.  The new integrations in Zyncro version 3.1 will include:

    • Like” button on the microblogging system messages and comments: To maximize participation in the system and evaluate corporate contribution without needing to add new information.
    • Integration with RSS: A standard blog and webpage reading and news exchange format. With this integration, web updates using this system can be published automatically on any work group.
    • Integration with Facebook pages (fan pages): For companies that have this type of page on Facebook and use it as a corporate communication channel as well as a digital marketing tool, they will also be able to publish automatically (without the need for manual intervention) including updates sent to their fans, customers or followers, in an internal work group.

    All of this is largely thanks to the use of ZyncroApps, which allow organization administrators to decide which integrations they want to activate within their internal social network and those that they do not.

    In your opinion, which social networks should be integrated into a corporate social network?  What do you think about our choice of new integrations?  How do you feel about the integration of these environments within a professional and corporate one?

    In a few weeks we will be able to enjoy the new version 3.1, which is more 2.0 than ever…

    Are you ready to be even more interconnected?
