The 10Duke Social Media SDK technology was used to create a customer social network for Tekla, to link the enterprise social network together with a desktop-based model sharing application, and to integrate customer interactions and input to Tekla's enterprise systems.
Neil Fenton, founder and Chairman of 10Duke comments: "Social networking is not just a consumer phenomenon. Businesses can also use the same social networking tools to create innovative new marketing channels that allow them to provide accurate and timely product information to existing and new customers. Tekla is ahead of the pack both in terms of its core software products as well as its use of social networking to provide its international customers with a bespoke online interaction channel, allowing those customers to not only communicate and collaborate with Tekla but also with each other. Additionally, the service provides a first line support solution allowing customers to provide support to each other and the technology continually feeds Tekla's CRM application. The10Duke Social Media SDK has allowed the rapid and bespoke creation of Tekla BIMsight, further demonstrating the advance of social networking into the enterprise."
Panu Laasonen, Project Manager of Tekla BIMsight, comments: "Tekla believes in social networking and viral media in professional industry applications such as Tekla BIMsight software. 10Duke really understood Tekla’s business targets in this project and provided an excellent combination of skills and technology that enable us to provide a unique offering for the building and construction industry."
