Oxfam International Selects Aware By Wiretap Governance, Compliance Solution For Workplace By Facebook Collaboration Environment
At Wiretap, we love collaboration — and today’s social collaboration and messaging tools make it easier than ever to work together — across the hallway, across departments, or around the world. Tools like Microsoft Yammer, Slack and Workplace by Facebook help speed innovation, increase employee engagement and reduce meetings by 25%. In today’s busy workplace, who needs more meetings?
Wiretap started with a basic premise — to build a solution that was meant to provide a layer of visibility and governance for collaboration tools so companies can properly steward their most valuable assets — including safeguarding intellectual property and customer data, protecting employees from harassment, ensuring HR policies are adhered to, and empowering companies to follow detailed industry compliance regulations.
The Aware by Wiretap platform provides a unique level of visibility into organizational interaction and behavior so issues can be addressed immediately and positive collaboration can be encouraged — so companies can gain exponential value from their collaboration tools without worry.
Enterprise Collaboration is always evolving, and no two businesses challenges look exactly alike. That’s why Wiretap’s executive team blends extensive experience and a discerning eye toward the future.
These bold visionaries and eager collaborators are smart, seasoned, and highly capable — tirelessly striving to improve how employees work together.
