More and more companies are seeing the value of embracing the social trend. Andy Hedges at Westfield UK saw the benefits of real-time collaboration and how enabling immediate feedback can save precious time in issue resolution.

'We had a gift card initiative where we were rolling out some changes to the gift card, and I think it's fair to say that some of the changes were perhaps not as well thought-through as they could've been.

What Yammer allowed us to do was to identify that issue very, very quickly, and rapidly collaborate on the best solution. The solution that was delivered saved at least six, if not more, weeks of headache.

Universal McCann Worldwide used Yammer to amplify the first steps of their pitch process for a campaign, allowing all teams to contribute no matter where they were based, and secured a global client as a result.
