Encouraging cross-team collaboration is pivotal in getting your employees to generate new ideas, and ensure the same problem isn't solved twice. Most staff will at some point during their working day be collaborating with others, so having the right tools and platform in place to facilitate this is vital, without being a cumbersome technical barrier to getting things done smoothly. Unily provides you with intuitive and flexible spaces to bring together resources, documents and social activity that give your staff everything they need to collaborate across projects and communities with ease.
Bringing new communities together starts at making them accessible to everyone. Unily provides an organized Workspaces menu which gives you flexibility over how you want to structure your communities and teams. Bring together security trimmed communities, SharePoint sites, Unily sites and followed sites in a way that works for you. Workspaces are supported with their own unique search functionality too, making it easy for users to track down the site they need.
Social networking can go much further that just allowing for likes and comments on corporate communications, it can be used to support communities and groups across the intranet, providing a space for dynamic conversations alongside static resources. On Unily, employees can come together across locations, teams and roles and join online communities or Tribes. Each of these Tribes are supported by their own social channel, pulled directly from Yammer or Unily social. This gives employees access to engage in conversations around a particular topic, without having to navigate to the central social feed.Foster Communities
To get tasks done, your employees need a space to come together and work. Whether they’re based in a single office or spread across the continent. Unily Sites offer the flexibility to privatize Sites, enabling teams to come together to manage projects. Private Sites give you the option to bring together an array of widgets that allow employees to share documents and resources, discover knowledge, discuss, connect and assign and complete tasks. Your site can feature a combination of pre-determined widgets or custom ones to embed a particular feed or feature, making them truly unique to your project.Project Management Tools
