Company

Business description: Yammer is the market and technology leader in Enterprise Microblogging and Real-time Communications. By enabling crisp and frequent updates to be posted by employees, Yammer is revolutionizing the way companies communicate, collaborate, and share content. As information is posted, a feed is created in one central location enabling co-workers to discuss ideas, post news, ask questions, and share links and other information. Yammer is a tool for making companies and organizations more productive through the exchange of short frequent answers to one simple question: 'What are you working on?' As employees answer that question, a feed is created in one central location enabling co-workers to discuss ideas, post news, ask questions, and share links and other information. Yammer also serves as a company directory in which every employee has a profile and as a knowledge base where past conversations can be easily accessed and referenced. Anyone in a company can start their Yammer network and begin inviting colleagues. The privacy of each network is ensured by limiting access to those with a valid company email address. Information is never shared with third parties. The basic Yammer service is free. Companies can pay to claim and administer their networks. Yammer was founded by former executives and early employees of PayPal, eGroups, eBay, and Tribe. It is backed by venture capital firms Founders Fund and Charles River Ventures.
