Specializing in social collaboration, MindLink creates a streamlined environment for intraorganizational group discussions via social networking opening up opportunities for peer-to-peer connection at the individual level.

“Business success today depends on teams of individuals working towards collective goals,” said Daanish Khan, Vice President of Strategy and Marketing, Formicary Collaboration Group. “But traditional email and social networking technology tools have fallen short in the enterprise in delivering business value because they’re not ideal for interactive, team-based collaboration. MindLink, on the other hand, was built from the ground up to support efficient communication among groups. It’s so effective in the enterprise that it frequently becomes the preferred mode of communications for groups working on common activities and goal.”
