Teamwork, mobility, collaboration and accessibility are just as important in today’s working world as the use of new technologies and approaches. The latter can be enhanced by utilising an appropriate system such as a social intranet.
In the following post, we would like to show you some everyday work scenarios which are greatly by the features in a social intranet:
Efficient and uncomplicated communication.
Expert knowledge is required, or information must be confirmed by a colleague who is currently in a different location: Just write a short chat message. Usually only a few lines are needed for work to be able to continue. This increases efficiency, reduces the flood of emails and the colleague can respond easily and quickly even on the go – all thanks to a mobile app.
An important meeting is about to begin. The projector in the meeting room is tested once more before the meeting starts. And again, there’s a problem. The presentation is stored on a device that is not compatible with the projector. A solution has to be found quickly, because time is ticking. in desperation, the in-house technician is called, but he’s busy with another problem. At the last minute, the presentation is able to be displayed by using a simple adapter.
After the meeting, the solution is recreated and recorded as a short smartphone video and then made available on the social intranet for all colleagues to see. Unnecessary stress can be avoided in future with the creation of a “How To” collection.
Knowledge — an important asset for everyone
An employee leaves the company and naturally, he takes with him the knowledge he has accumulated over decades- but not if everything is documented in one place. In Wikis each expert has the opportunity to document their collected knowledge for everyone. Everything is clearly arranged and the complete history of a project, without any gaps, is stored in the Project folder. New employees or external partners can be granted access to this information in just a few clicks and a smooth project progression is guaranteed.
Regular meetings with suppliers, partners and other relevant departments are crucial for good cooperation. A common collaboration platform greatly simplifies communication and collaboration: everyone sits at the same digital table, tracks all relevant information at any time without having to search through thousands of emails and can quickly and easily communicate their own experiences, thoughts and concerns to everyone else. As a result, all involved parties are always up-to-date so that any knowledge gaps can be closed, and nothing stands in the way of a successful project conclusion.
The examples of different everyday work scenarios show how you, with the introduction of a social intranet, can support more efficient communication, collaboration and knowledge management in your company.
It is essential to success that all relevant parties understand the benefits of a social intranet, that the appropriate training and workshops for the users take place and that the corporate mentality is adapted to be prepared for and to accept the new conditions- because even the best system will fail if people do not use it.
Yes to transition- the social intranet.
Flexibility, speed, responsiveness and networking are massively important in the digital age. Collaboration and communication which is independent of time and location are increasingly becoming the focus of attention. As a result, workflows and processes must be mapped and put into practice in a timely manner. In our private life, communication is already much more modern than in many companies.
We use WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube to spread information and to acquire or share knowledge. Social intranets and collaboration platforms can become a haven for every employee in the business environment where all future actions are planned and carried out.
Convince your employees, partners and suppliers of the individualised advantages, highlight them and don’t fear transparency. If this change succeeds throughout the company, nothing stands in the way of a Digital Workplace.
Properly prepared, implemented and then lived, social intranet tools are guaranteed to deliver your business a quick return on investment.
It is our belief that “simple collaboration” is the efficient, future-orientated key to your company’s success.
