SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – August 22, 2011 – ON24, the global leader in webcasting and virtual event solutions, announced today that Yammer, a leading provider of secure enterprise social networks for business collaboration, is using ON24 Webcasting Platform 10 for virtual communications.
“ON24’s webcasting platform allows us to connect with Yammer users in a new and engaging way,” said Jim Patterson, vice president of Product Management, Yammer. “We use ON24 to bring educational content to large audiences in a dynamic environment that allows us to receive feedback and provide answers to questions in real time. By giving users access to their Yammer feed from the platform, they will be able to collaborate with co-workers in a town hall format, making it even more interactive.”
ON24 is also announcing a new feature to its Yammer application widget which supports Yammer External Networks. Yammer External Networks enable employees to create separate private, secure networks for collaboration with groups outside their company, such as customers, partners and other third-party business contacts. The widget allows ON24 users to toggle between Yammer networks while attending webinars and other online events.
ON24 and Yammer are offering a complimentary webcast this week, “Revolutionizing Internal Corporate Communications,” that will focus on the strengths of ON24 webcasting and Yammer communications capabilities. Mark Szelenyi, ON24’s Senior Director of Webcasting Product Management, and Yammer’s Patterson will explain how webcasting, when combined with Yammer’s unique capabilities, can take company meetings to the next level. Topics to be addressed include:

- How to increase webcast engagement and functionality with ON24’s new Yammer widget
- Tools for measuring effectiveness and attendee engagement
“Every organization, whether it is a multinational corporation or a non-profit institution, is only as strong as its workforce,” Szelenyi said. “Effective internal communications are key to everything from creating a knowledgeable workforce to meeting corporate compliance goals. Many enterprises are adopting ON24 Webcasting Platform 10, with its unique and varied app widgets, because it effectively solves internal communication challenges.”
