Tittle:
Multifunctional social management platform
Summary:
A Spanish cloud software developer SME, specialised in Ruby on Rails, has developed a multifunctional social management platform to be used in collaborative environments (business centers, coworking spaces, technology parks, employee networks..). It allows entities to automate processes, improve communication, cover all resource management needs and create a social network. They are seeking final users for commercial agreements with technical assistance and IT partners for technical cooperation.
Description:
It is well known that a cloud software tool can contribute to increase productivity and reduce costs.

Many companies use different platforms and IT tools to cover their needs, but this ends in costs increase, administrative workload increase, disperse communication, misalignment of objectives and decreasing productivity.

To solve all these problems, a Spanish SME has developed a cloud management tool that unifies all services that an entity could need in a single platform. This tool allows users to automate processes, improve communication, cover all resource management needs and create a social network that engages synergies and collaborations.

Some technical features of the tool are:

a) Developed under Ruby on Rails with Bootstrap. It complies with CSS3 and HTML5 standards.

b) Infrastructure is built and managed on Amazon Opsworks. Amazon Opsworks is Amazon´s own implementation of the popular systems integration framework Chef. Chef allows for the automatization of server management, thus providing an excellent and reliable way of achieving complete scalability.

Everytime a new server needs to be booted up for improved performance, Opsworks will create it and configure it automatically in a matter of minutes. This can be triggered manually, or when a sustained server load requirement is met.

c) Flexible Pub/Sub Messaging, instantly update browsers. Live user lists (presence). Presence channels to show the online/offline status of the users in real time, making the development of chat and collaborative apps a cinch.

d) Access control/authentication. The most important and sensitive data has been encrypted with the standard SHA-256 RSA encryption.

e) Printing control for cost savings

f) Access control, Payment methods and lighting control systems for energy saving integration.

g) Multi-centre (keeping the independence of every centre in terms of resource management)

h) Multilingual (can be customised to language needs for every user)

i) Any other management needs can be combined with:
News board
Bulletin board
Communication and notifications
Social network
Users, departments, company profiles
Benefits
Perks

The social network created can be used internally (by the entity) or externally, so users and entities can share information and extend their networking with other entities.

This can be of great added value for example, in the case of Technology Parks and innovation centres. They could foster and encourage networking between all settled entities, and therefore find synergies and collaboration for technological, research or commercial projects.

Besides, users, companies and projects can be evaluated so it will be easy to find the best partner for each project. Several ways of communication between all users of the platform have been designed and implemented. New ones can be added, developed and customised if it is needed.

This Multifunctional Social Management Platform can be used in different sectors apart from Technologies Parks as referred before:
Business centers
Coworking Spaces
Innovation centers
Franchise social network
Loyalty, customer network
Employees company network
Neighborhood social platform
Smart city social

The Spanish SME is interested in several types of partnerships depending on the potential partner:

* Final users for commercial agreements with technical assistance. They will provide their specific needs. Full support will be given for a right use of the technology.

* IT partners for technical cooperation in terms of dissemination of the technology in their area, implementation, technical support to final users and joint upgrading (new modules, improvements, customisation) of the technology if necessary.
Advantages and Innovations:
Advantages

a) Design and technology used for the development of this tool can make possible a versatile platform. This one can be used and customised for any company and sector.

b) The social network created can be used internally (by the entity) or externally, so users and entities can share information and extend their networking with other entities (associations, University, Technology Centers, Freelancers, customers, providers, distributors...)

c) Unification of all services in a same cloud platform. helps final users to improve communication, reduce costs, reduce administrative workload and improve productivity.

Innovations

a) Modularity. Modules can be activated or deactivated according to needs.

b) Multi-center: It can be used whether an internal social network for an individual user/customer, or a social network with any number of user/customers.

c) APIs for integration with external applications, corporate websites, PaperCut (printing control), PayPal and Stripe (payment methods), access control, lighting control systems for energy savings.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
Several types of agreements are sought with final users and IT companies.

a) Final users for commercial agreements with technical assistance. They will provide their specific needs for implementation and customisation of the tool. Full technical support will be given for a right use of the technology (use and problems)

b) Technical cooperation with IT partners in terms of in terms of dissemination of the technology in their area, implementation, technical support to final users and joint upgrading (design and development of new modules or functionalities to meet specific final users requirements in case these upgrades are not initially included in the tool. They would play a very important role as first point of contact in their area (region/country)
