Zimbra Social 8.5 Provides New Capabilities for Brand Engagement that Empower Business Users

Zimbra, a global leader in unified collaboration software, today introduced the latest version of its social software for online communities and social networks, Zimbra SocialTM 8.5. Zimbra Social (formerly Telligent) provides the most modern user experience with mobile-first, responsive design for online communities that engage customers anytime, anywhere, on any device. The latest release includes enhancements that make it easy for community managers to uniquely tailor the social experience.

Zimbra Social 8.5 includes a new business rules engine that empowers community managers to customize community experiences that drive engagement. The easy-to-use business rules engine eliminates the need for costly development, enabling community managers to design their own rules for engagement using any combination of badges, points, reputation and more. Using the new business rules engine, the latest release also provides pre-built templates for achievements that reward community participation.

“The best brands in the world demand a unique social experience,” said Olivier Thierry, chief marketing officer at Zimbra. “Rather than tell you how your online community should look, feel and act, Zimbra puts you in complete control of brand engagement,” continued Thierry. “The latest release of Zimbra Social takes this even further by giving community managers a simple way to custom tailor the community experience.”

Zimbra Social powers thousands of online communities and social networks, each uniquely designed to enhance customer support, drive brand loyalty and increase employee productivity.
