“Whatever’s comfortable” on the social intranet

If you, like me, enjoy the odd recreational glass of whiskey or cocktail now and again, then you are familiar with any number of the brands owned by Brown-Forman. Some of their most well-known brands are Jack Daniel’s, Southern Comfort, Chambord, Herradura, Finlandia and Woodford Reserve.

Jennifer McClintonI, for one, find the Southern Comfort marketing campaign “Whatever’s comfortable” to be as entertaining as any commercials out there. They speak to me.

With such rich brands in hand, Brown-Forman needed an intranet that could nurture and strengthen their unique culture. Enter a social intranet, powered by Salesforce Platform.

Brown-Forman uses the intranet to help staff around the globe connect with each other as well as with the brands and the company itself. It also used the platform to build custom apps around specific business processes and needs.

On the November 4th episode of Digital Workplace Live see a live intranet site tour guided by Jennifer McClinton, Director of Technology Development at Brown-Forman. This will be a special chance to find out how one innovative company uses enterprise social tools to strengthen a unique culture.
