The Problem
After looking at all of the traditional social media networks, the limitations became clear. NSTXL needed a robust platform that allowed the level of flexibility, customization and ease of use to facilitate communication—and a way to make it all their own.

The Solution
The Mobilize team put together a complete branded experience that removed the barriers of engagement with their entire member-base but also appeared to be custom to their value offering. 

 

The Problem: A Complex Process with Only Basic Tools

National Security Technology Accelerator (NSTXL) helps get the most advanced technologies and companies involved in – corporate, university and others – the Department of Defense in an agile way and improving the process for working with the DoD.

They have over a thousand partcipants whose input they needed at scale. Government contracts are large and complex. They need to recruit the right people and have them quickly respond to opportunities. Needed a platform to engage with each other and not have NSTXL as the bottleneck having to facilitate all of those interactions and introductions.

After looking at all of the traditional social media networks, the limitations became clear. They needed a robust platform that allowed the level of flexibility, customization and ease of use to facilitate communication.

The Solution: Bringing Contact Collaboration into the Future

NSTXL partnered with Mobilize for a number of reasons. First off, it allowed them to white label the product completely. They wanted to differentiate their offering and build their own product unique to their needs. 

It also allowed a level of collaboration across their member base they couldn’t get anywhere else, where members could find each other through a rich directory and profile system. 

Members could create groups on the fly and participate easily within their field of expertise. Having the Mobilize services team work closely along the way made the whole process easy. 

And finally, the ability to participate through email, mobile and web took down the barriers for both the tech savvy and less technical members.

The Results: A Connected Network and Thrilled Members

The members loved it. Day one saw a flurry of thrilled members excited about the platform. Members have since been posting all the time and sending many messages of gratitude for innovating on the old process. 

Within the first week, 10% of users came on board, we saw one collaboration of two previously unknown companies and companies building IP together, companies advertising their new IP. And the Navy has been thrilled as well.

“In just a short time, the response has been amazing. It's truly changing how government contracts work.”
