The British Medical Association Chooses Telligent for Online Professional Community for Doctors

UK professional association provides deeper member engagement online with Telligent Community and Sitecore integration

London, UK and Dallas, TX - 27 March 2013 - Telligent, a leading provider of social community software for the enterprise, today announced that the British Medical Association (BMA) has selected Telligent Community and Telligent Connect for Sitecore to further enable communication, networking and information sharing among its growing membership of doctors in the United Kingdom.

"We were looking for a unified, social approach to member engagement," said Stewart Atkins, Head of Digital Communications at British Medical Association. "What sold us on Telligent is that it will provide us with richer social engagement for our members and seamless integration with Sitecore. It gives us the ability to rapidly create and deploy new communities and quickly respond with conversational channels that help us meet the needs of members and stakeholders."

With the help of Telligent's partners, Sitecore and Precedent, the BMA plans to build a range of online communities that address the diverse needs of different local and devolved nation structures as well as the various branches of practices. They aim to facilitate greater peer-to-peer communication that can be tapped into in order to gauge sentiment and develop more focused products and services.

"We are eager to see the impact that online community will have on the BMA," said Steve Poncini, General Manager of International Business at Telligent. "As the role of doctors in the UK continues to evolve to meet the challenges of modern society, we believe there are clear benefits from connecting them and providing a platform to share experience and information on key issues for the profession."

Telligent Community is social community software designed for flexibility in building public, customer-facing communities that achieve your business objectives for improving customer support, building brand loyalty and strengthening member networks.

Telligent Connect for Sitecore easily integrates Telligent Community and Sitecore by providing a full social community experience within a Sitecore-powered site.
