With its 30 ready-to-use applications, Silverpeas gives you the opportunity to put in place a collaborative Intranet/Extranet platform that meets the needs of any organization.
The integrated ESN (Enterprise Social Network) offers the possibility for users to manage their profile, update their status, choose their relationships, and monitor their activity, while making it easy to keep everyone updated and find the platform's content (documents, images, events, etc).
The catalog of applications :
Professional Document Management
Easily organize, publish and share the information that counts! Silverpeas' leading application, the EDM makes it possible to build a older structure and manage your information with the publications. Resembling an email, these offer the possibility to group together into a single page: attached files (with track changes), open content (WYSIWYG) or structured content (form), and metadata (title, date, author, etc.). Users can comment on the publications, subscribe to folders, notify, etc. The different roles and settings, as well as the integrated validation workflows, can be adapted to the majority of needs. It is also possible to build new validation workflows through the workflow engine.
Multi-axis Document Management

The different views offered present one-time or periodic events. The application enables clustering and rapid access to other almanacs. All the events can be exported into iCal format.

Ideal for checking knowledge or as an e-learning solution, this entertaining application creates a series of closed questions. A precise score and rating can be defined for each question. The notion of a good or bad response and final score makes it possible to highlight users and establish a winner.
First, the manager creates categorized resources (rooms, vehicles, computer hardware, etc.). Then, the users create reservations that require one or several resources. Only the resources available at the requested dates are proposed. It is possible to activate a validation system.
Under the responsibility of a project manager, a set of tasks is created. Each task (and its subtasks) is overseen by a manager. The allocation of associated resources is automatically calculated and makes it possible to detect an overallocation. The Gantt chart provides an optimal visualization.

Responding at first sight to a very basic need, the application puts in place a true SSO client system oriented towards any internet sites that require an authentication.
This application sends a newsletter to platform users or to external contacts. Contact management is made easier through the CSV import/export. Putting in place a model makes it easier to create a new publication.
The ads are categorized according to one's needs. The structure of the ads is customizable. They can be moderated. The users can leave comments and subscribe to the criteria of their choice.
