Next Principles is the company behind the social CRM system nextCRM and its mobile counterpart nextMobile. The company website is sparse on details, and lacks any screenshots, so it's difficult to tell how well this company lives up to its promise to provide a more simple CRM solution.

Saba Software makes enterprise "social learning" products. Saba was ranked as a visionary in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Employee Performance Management Software, and as a "niche player" (but very near the "challengers" line) in its Magic Quadrant for Workplace Social Software.
