Inkling today unveiled its all-in-one enterprise content platform, Inkling for Enterprise, a new way for businesses to reach both internal and external audiences with dynamic, engaging content on mobile devices and PCs. The announcement follows strong overall business growth for Inkling, including a third consecutive year of triple-digit revenue growth. Inkling was included for the second consecutive year on the prestigious Inc. 500 list and San Francisco Business Times’ Fast 100 list.
Inkling for Enterprise delivers knowledge at the point of need, powering the authoring, distribution, and analysis of an organization’s most mission-critical business documents. Desktop files and applications like PowerPoint® and InDesign® have failed to address the needs of mobile users. Inkling for Enterprise gives businesses a better medium to share knowledge, enabled through Inkdocs™: interactive, living documents that flow gracefully across devices, and can be measured and securely distributed. Inkling’s integrated authoring and collaboration environment allows non-technical users to easily create and update Inkdocs. Additionally, Inkdocs are easily searchable, even amid large collections, making it easy to find precisely what you need, when you need it.
Through a year-long beta program, Inkling has expanded its core platform, already used by the world’s largest publishers, to enterprises of all kinds. Inkling replaces binders, PDFs, and file-sharing platforms like SharePoint® with an integrated, searchable knowledge repository. Inkdocs can be searched and viewed within Inkling, or embedded into third-party systems including learning management systems like SuccessFactors® and Cornerstone® OnDemand, where they replace traditional SCORM and other media formats.
With the unveiling of Inkling for Enterprise, the company has more than tripled its customer base in the last year to include global brands like Gap Inc., KPMG, Accenture, Roche, and the Carnival Corporation. These customers are using Inkling for Enterprise to improve employee retention and performance, drive customer satisfaction, generate revenue, and engage customers in new ways by embracing the long-overdue shift to mobile in the enterprise.
“Customers and employees of all backgrounds live their lives on phones, but today’s enterprises are still emailing customers PDFs or, worse, shipping employees binders,” said Inkling founder and CEO, Matt MacInnis. “The desire for change spans every industry: from major accounting firms like KPMG to retail organizations like Gap, Inc., hospitality companies like Princess Cruises, to medical companies like Medtronic. Each is working with Inkling to embrace the new mobile reality and turn a challenge into a competitive advantage.”
Backed by its progressive revenue growth, Inkling has opened new offices in Seattle and San Francisco in the last year, and has expanded its East Coast team, based in New York. Inkling for Enterprise, as a fully cloud-based product, will evolve to provide purpose-specific solutions for enterprises with large employee and partner bases across retail, foodservice, hospitality and travel, automotive, insurance, and healthcare sectors.
Inkling is the world’s first all-in-one enterprise content platform. We help companies improve performance by better connecting their employees, partners, and customers with the knowledge they need. Unlike file-based content platforms, which merely sync files, Inkling integrates the entire communication chain into a single platform: secure distribution, easy content creation, and robust analytics. The result is beautiful, interactive documents that work across all devices. Based in San Francisco, Inkling is backed by Sequoia Capital, and partners with some of the world’s biggest brands. Inkling also powers the digital content production of the world’s largest publishers, including McGraw-Hill and Pearson. For more information, visit www.inkling.com.
