The adoption of cloud services by organizations signifies a shift from on-premise applications chosen and implemented by management, to a user-centric consumption model.
Now individuals and teams have the freedom to trial applications at their leisure and choose to onboard them with a credit card and in most cases, without any contract.
The growing segmentation of digital workplace software means the average team member is now accessing up to ten different applications during their average workday in order to get work done.
There are tools for content creation and publishing (blogging, social media and content management apps), tools for managing and communicating with customers (project management and customer relationship management apps), and tools for supporting and managing staff (human resource and performance management apps).
We’re also still spending a good majority of our time dealing with email, with about a quarter of our day spent managing our inbox. A lot of us still rely on email to automate work tasks and processes, not because we love email, but because we haven’t been shown a better way of working. Cloud-based apps are quickly changing this outlook with the adoption of work-oriented apps on the rise.
CentricMinds enables you to merge most of the common apps your team are using into a single location, thereby allowing the discovery of these apps for the benefit of all users.
CentricMinds enables you to merge most of the common apps your team are using into a single location, thereby allowing the discovery of these apps for the benefit of all users. The approach of using the Intranet as the portal to other apps is nothing new, but traditionally this just meant providing a link to the apps themselves.
CentricMinds supports connectivity with many of the trusted apps that your team has used for years. However we now support these integrations in a way that allows anyone to choose from a pre-configured list and drop them into any page within the Intranet.
Want to embed a Slack discussion within a customer project that is right next to real-time customer analytics? Need to display a Dropbox directory to a specific team working remotely, but where the directory changes based on the teams location? Want to minimize document routing via email and instead enable team members to publish directly from Office to locations within the Intranet?
CentricMinds provides powerful context to the way your team works with these third party apps, by bringing them together to deliver content and data in meaningful and powerful ways.
The digital workplace goes beyond the entrenched tools of yesteryear, and now encapsulates a growing suite of web services that users access via the web and their mobile devices.
A modern Intranet supports this landscape of productivity tools that lessen the burden of email and deliver benefits to users no matter where and when they are working.
