"For some time, we've understood that a social networking solution might provide the foundation for future development and expanded collaboration. But we had a few tough requirements. First, the network would need to be hosted in the cloud providing security and worldwide availability. Second, the platform would need to be DIY (do-it-yourself), so as to minimize the learning curve and time-to-market. Finally, the platform would need to enable us to easily navigate across a network of both public and private groups, because that reflects the way business is done in our world. Clearvale met all three requirements. We are only six months into this project, and already we are seeing results across the ecosystem." — Al Koszarek, President and CEO of Aeroxchange

Gemeente Tilburg is a municipality in the Netherlands that manages the City of Tilburg as well as providing support for the surrounding towns and villages within the wider region of Brabant. Already known for its openness to adopting new technologies and methodologies, the Municipality of Tilburg was looking for a way to improve communication among its employees, increase interaction with its citizens and encourage collaboration among the public, businesses and government institutions. Having relied on BroadVision for its external website, www.tilburg.nl, and for their employee intranet (Binnenweb) for the last 8 years, Tilburg were looking to extend the reach of their intranet to the civil servants working outside of the immediate City of Tilburg.
The plan was to use portal micro-sites to provide the necessary dissemination of information and foster two-way communication amongst the various communities. This was proving cumbersome to implement for a variety of reasons, not least that it was not really able to deliver the social layer they were looking for to help foster collaboration and improve communication amongst the civil servants. However, on reviewing BroadVision’s enterprise social network Clearvale, the Tilburg team realized this met all of their criteria regarding their project requirements and would help them quickly meet their goals.
“Clearvale gave us the opportunity to share information with the city as well as within the organization. The possibility to create separate communities is by far the most valuable feature as it gives us a measure of flexibility that we really appreciate.”
-Michiel Duijsings, Web Manager, Municipality of Tilburg
