Maang is a work networking tool, similar to Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. It allows staff to engage in conversations in a closed professional network. You can connect with your colleagues to collaborate and share information and documents. It encourages quick, searchable communication and it's great for instant advice, guidance and discussion on hot topics and best practice.
