Overall Satisfaction

It's used by the whole organisation for sharing and collaboration across divisions and geographies
  • Allows you to connect with anybody in the organisation
  • Allows you to publish your work and solicit feedback or even direct changes, with some version control
  • Search functionality is very weak
  • The information architecture and taxonomy doesnt allow for easy discoverability of content
  • It's hard to navigate the and find spaces/groups that I already know about
  • The main profile/interface does not allow easy access to key tasks or common tasks.
  • Better project collaboration
  • Global sharing of learnings and best practices on common problems
  • Increased visibility of high-performing individuals, regardless of current position within the organisation
I was not involved in the selection process
It's not my decision
As a piece of software, it attempts to solve the problems of internal communications within distributed organisations but the specifics on how it does that should be considered before deciding if it's an appropriate fit.
