iUpload Announces Integration with Microsoft SharePoint, Uniting Enterprise Blog and Wiki Capabilities with Portal Technology

iUpload's Customer Conversation System Allows SharePoint Users to Pull Blog and Wiki Content into Enterprise Portals

Burlington, Ontario — February 23, 2022 — iUpload today announced the integration of its Customer Conversation System with Microsoft’s SharePoint, bringing enterprise blogging and wiki capabilities to SharePoint users. The iUpload Customer Conversation System combines blogs and related social media technologies with enterprise-class management tools to improve internal and external communications and drive operational efficiencies.

The iUpload SharePoint integration brings all of iUpload's advanced features for managing large communities of blogs, including editorial control, template and taxonomy management, security and versioning, to the Microsoft SharePoint environment, and allows users to present blog, wiki and other content as Web Parts within SharePoint.

With iUpload, SharePoint users can now draw in the best content from large blog communities that may include contributions from employees, partners and customers, while leveraging the blog, wiki, discussion forum, and podcasting features of iUpload. Since the iUpload Customer Conversation System supports virtually any third party blog authoring tool, the SharePoint integration also allows companies to harness, integrate, and manage independent blogs that already exist within most corporate environments regardless of the blogging tool that they are authored and hosted on.

“As the pervasiveness of blogs in the corporate environment continues to grow at a phenomenal rate, organizations are beginning to understand the importance of harnessing this content for the benefit of company communication and mindshare,” said Robin Hopper, CEO of iUpload. “Our integration will extend the value of Microsoft’s SharePoint by offering a way for organizations to easily incorporate employee blogs, wikis and other content for enterprise use all from within the SharePoint platform.”

The SharePoint integration makes iUpload blog, wiki, and other features available as Web Parts to include within SharePoint. iUpload content that can be included when building SharePoint sites includes:

  • Wikis, recent posts, podcasts, events and photo albums by knowledge category;
     
  • Lists of bloggers and contributors;

  • Lists of categories and corresponding RSS feeds;

  • Most popular and commented on blog posts and wikis; and,

  • Editor's picks.

In use by more than 50 companies across a range of industries, iUpload's Customer Conversation System combines a comprehensive set of blogging, wiki and content management tools with the IT management capabilities required for enterprise deployment, such as security, workflow, regulatory compliance and integration with existing enterprise applications and other third-party solutions.

iUpload’s SharePoint integration is available immediately to Microsoft SharePoint customers by contacting the iUpload sales team at sales@iupload.com.
