Our Connections Touchpoint solution provides an interactive user experience that can be used for a wide variety of touchpoints. For example, it can provide a guided introduction to new IBM Connections users, significantly improving their initial user experience with the platform. Our solution walks users through the process of filling in their profile, uploading a photo, choosing users and communities to follow and reviewing important usage information from their organization. By providing users with personalized and relevant content from their initial sign-in they derive immediate value and your organization benefits from improved user adoption.
