Kvadrat needed a digital platform to simplify knowledge sharing, internal communication and collaboration in the workplace. In July, the company went live with their new Colibo Intranet and gathered together almost 700 employees across 30 countries.
More dialogue, less emails
A problem for many companies is the ever-drowning email inbox, where the process of creating an overview interrupts the working engagement right from the early morning. To increase workflow, Kvadrat chose Colibo as a company hub and main entrance to their entire digital workplace.
Kvadrat needed a simpler way to share resources crosswise and allow bottom-up ideas to drive the company forward. The solution was to transform their email groups in Outlook, corresponding to their geographic units worldwide and nationwide, into digital communication groups on the new platform.
Employees are now working more closely together, and Kvadrat steps closer towards fulfilling their aim of establishing an atmosphere of collaboration and communication across the organization.
With meaningful file sharing, everyone has quick access to relevant content
Kvadrat’s implementation of Colibo as a collaboration tool and news- and communication forum is a personified project named Kvadrat TALK.
”Talk should be where you go to find answers and ask questions.” - Jannie Højer, Head of HR Development.
To increase teamwork, the company needed a place to share all of the finalized content from video interviews, pictures and news stories to academies for employee learning. The processing and handling part of the often-large files and documents is managed in other systems, but shared on TALK.
The value of dialogue
The dialogue throughout the implementation of the new intranet was crucial for Kvadrat’s decision process when choosing Colibo as their intranet supplier.
“For us, it has been decisive to primarily find a platform that could meet our requirements. But also to find a partner who listened and understood our needs. It has been our experience from the beginning that Colibo's team has been skilled and interested in understanding our needs." - Jannie Højer, Head of HR Development
