Socitm partners with Knowledge Hub to boost digital collaboration

Socitm is one of the first organisations to implement Knowledge Hub’s new ‘Network’ facility, allowing it to set up and manage a Socitm-focused community on behalf of its 1,650 members.

Knowledge Hub, the UK’s largest platform for public service collaboration, has teamed up with Socitm, the society for IT/digital leaders and professionals working in local public services, to enable Socitm members to collaborate online.

Socitm is one of the first organisations to implement Knowledge Hub’s new ‘Network’ facility, allowing it to set up and manage a Socitm-focused community on behalf of its 1,650 members, whilst retaining the ability to engage with the wider public services community across Knowledge Hub.

Socitm’s members and partners will be able to access a variety of services on Knowledge Hub, including:

  • A member networking group which will include Socitm Strategic Partners to provide more opportunity to engage with members and national stakeholders
  • Knowledge Hub Groups for each of Socitm’s regional meetings to encourage collaboration across public and private sector organisations on regional topics.
  • A dedicated Socitm Partner Programme Group for suppliers to access materials and connect with Socitm staff.
  • A new policy discussion area aimed at giving members more visibility into Socitm’s representation work.
  • Access to the Socitm Insight research service, allowing subscribers to connect with each other, participate in forums, receive group messages, post ideas and take part in quick polls.

Ian Singleton, head of member services at Socitm said: “The opportunity to facilitate peer-to-peer networking and securely share knowledge across sectors are key reasons for joining. We previously had a number of disparate portals and online collaboration tools that weren’t being effectively utilised.

“Many of our members are already familiar with Knowledge Hub as part of their day job, or through its ongoing Web Improvement and Usage Community. That was a big positive for us, alongside with it being an open standards technology. Through our partnership with Knowledge Hub, we are confident of enhancing our membership offering by providing the digital tools that our members really need.”
