TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) announced that Cordelta, a professional services and consulting firm based in Australia, has selected tibbr® to stimulate internal collaboration and communication. Cordelta relies on the tibbr platform to keep its staff connected across their respective client sites, improve information sharing throughout the organization and reduce unnecessary emails and meetings. Using tibbr, Cordelta's staff of more than 150 employees is now able to communicate effectively across its offices in Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Organized into several different practice groups within the overall business, Cordelta needed a solution that would allow its employees to stay connected and make decisions faster. Since implementing tibbr, the company has seen an estimated 30 percent improvement in internal communication, with the biggest impact coming from employees reducing time spent searching for information. Because tibbr allows employees to follow different subjects, crucial information is no longer lost in the email shuffle and business decisions can be made much more quickly. And since vital information is now shared inside tibbr, the company has eliminated dozens of internal mailing lists.

"Our management team is heavily invested in maintaining Cordelta's award-winning workplace culture, but with the company spread across multiple locations, it can be difficult to maintain communication across the organization and keep employees invested," said Cordelta CIO Matthew Ryan. "Using tibbr, we've been able to engage our employees at a new level, helping them effectively communicate to work more efficiently and also to be more involved in the company overall."

In addition to improving internal collaboration and communication, tibbr has helped Cordelta's consulting team in the field. Because the platform is accessible from various devices (desktop, laptop, smartphone and tablet), clients and employees have instant access to the information they need, enabling real-time responses and adjustments to projects as needed.

"Today's businesses are operated out of multiple locations that need to work as one cohesive unit but are often challenged by engagement and information-sharing issues. With enterprise social platforms, they can largely overcome those problems and foster a more collaborative and dedicated environment," said Ram Menon, president social computing, TIBCO. "tibbr is more than just an internal communication platform for companies like Cordelta. It's empowering these companies to work more efficiently and engage their workforces, no matter where they're located."

Established in 2004, Cordelta primarily serves the Australian federal government market. It has received numerous awards for its consulting services and was ranked as one of Australia's best and fairest places to work by one of Australia's most authoritative and popular business publications, BRW.
