How SaaS benefits your Workforce

Moving away from complicated technology infrastructure and onto a fully maintained cloud IT service can leave some organisations with concerns about security, resourcing and maintenance.   However these concerns are easily dismissed when we consider the true benefits to a well serviced SaaS.

High adoption & multi device use

SaaS applications are available anytime anywhere so users can login and use the tools - no need to wait until you get back to the office.

The Digital Workspace - Trends of 2016

Last night we had our quarterly meet-up at the IoD.  The attendence was excellent with some new faces as well as some familiar.

We had two inspirational thought leaders, both focusing on Trends for 2016.  One from the Employee Engagement perspective and the other how the Digital Workspace can support new ways to engage employees, from voting for canteen menu to checking fire extinguishers have been tested.  Both were very interesting.

Invotra invited to speak at International Intranet Conference

Paul Zimmerman was asked to speak at the IntraTeam conference after his highly acclaimed talk at the Intranet Now Conference in October 2015.  

Kurt Kragh Sørensen from IntraTeam asked Paul to speak after listening to him talk on the 'Future of the Connected Enterprise'.  The talk touches on how the micronisation of communication and increase in digital adoption means people are connected to their enterprise more than ever before.  He also discusses how the enterprise can adopt the concept to improve employee engagement.

How the Digital Workspace connects BIM and the IoT

Much has been written over the last couple of years regarding the so-called Internet of Things. For the uninitiated, the Internet of Things is a term that's been used for a few years to describe how physical machines and devices become connected to the Internet. In many cases, these connected devices can connect to each other.

The data that is created by these connected devices fuel higher engagement and intelligence by those who interpret that data: be they humans or other machines.

Digital Workplace V Digital Workspace

I was recently asked internally to explain why we choose 'Workspace' and not 'Workplace' when describing Invotra.

We did think a lot about this at the time and we did have differing internal views on the topic initially.  We settled on Workspace as we felt it more accurately describes the more ubiquitous nature of where people work.

Invotra: Leading the Digital Workspace Evolution

The change from intranets to social intranets took a relatively long time.  When you consider that intranets had been around, in their most raw form, since the early 1990’s it took until 2010 for the social networking craze to impact on business.  Yes, there had been some minor tinkering with proprietary systems allowing people to communicate before 2010, but it was then that businesses started to take the concept seriously.

The SaaS Digital Workspace - Commercially Transparent

When we were putting together our offering we wanted the commercials to reflect the product.  

Invotra is built on open source (Drupal, Piwik, Solr, Node.js).  The open source community relies on it’s members to provide support and guidance to each other.  Code is created and then submitted back into the community for anyone to use, for free.  It’s a fair community where contribution is encouraged and collaboration is key.  Everything is open and transparent.
