Bloomfire brings conversations and content together to create context and drive purposeful collaboration. We help a company’s employees, customers and partners work better together.
For collaboration to be impactful, it needs to be contextual, purposeful and compelling. For it to truly gain traction and transform, it needs to be simple and in tune with the ways people interact, share and learn in real life.
We get it. We’ve taken a page from the consumer technology handbook to deliver a highly intuitive, personalized experience that’s optimized for mobile. We put collaboration in the flow of business by integrating with everyday tools, which drives adoption.
We built Bloomfire as a blank canvas, a launch pad, a catalyst. We designed it to fuel excitement within the ranks. With our brand of collaboration, individual ideas coalesce into collective wisdom. Teams will be lined up and ready to create, engage, and eager to reach new heights.
