OUR STORY



We are business managers with IT background developing online collaboration solutions.


We’ve been working for more than 15 years and along this time we implemented systems for customers with hundreds, thousands and tens of thousands of employees.

Our implementations have been always appreciated by customers as quick to implement and effective.

All this time, we had many talks with prospective customers that told us that they have mature systems and we cannot possibly help them.

When we started to ask them more detailed questions about how efficient they were, we’ve got some answers showing quite the opposite.

CEO: any change we need to propagate in our organization it is done in months and with a huge effort. I wish our organization be more agile.

HR Manager: monthly we get about 7-8000 messages from our employees and don’t have enough time to complete much more important things as we are busy to respond to those messages.
Trade Marketing Manager: the success rate of changes we ask to be implemented in our network is at 50%-60%. We are looking for practical and efficient ways to get at least 90%.
Clerck: I have some simple questions on a benefit program and no one is answering. When I have been ill it took me half an hour to find out who should I talk to solve the formalities.

Primary causes

Overloading employees with information

Intranet architecture not adapted to the large volume of information and changes

The digital space in which the employee operates is a non-ergonomic one

These limitations are seen in various operational problems that affect the quality of the offered services, the flexibility and the costs of the company.

Context

Our beneficiaries have mature IT systems and competent IT teams, with significant budgets.

Most clients have intranets with numerous functionalities and information; corporate news, rules and procedures, product information, employee benefits, etc.

The operational communication with employees is mainly digital.

We’ve been thinking and analysing why this major difference between the result of what we did and what happened to all the companies we interacted with. It was definitelly something we did different.

What is zenify?

A managerial approach with operational focus to build comprehensive, high performance digital workplaces

Guiding content producers as regards what content is required to be produced and how it should be structured

Offering a streamlined user experience that collects all the required information around a topic

We realized that our systematic approach to how the users interacted with our systems was well adapted to the way the employees prefer to consume information.

Zenify Architecture

HOW ZENIFY WORKS

Any intranet will be useful for users if it supports them to do their tasks

A. How do you identify the key topics for employees?

Any employee must work with the support departments, his peers and the company as a whole.

Therefore all these interactions have to be present within the digital workplace.






B. Functions of the Digital Workplace at each
topic/task

Each time the employee accesses a page on the intranet he should be informed about changes, exposed to best practices, or motivated to do that task a little better.

She/he can find people to support him with that specific subject or send some feedback to the process owner.

Everything has to do with being better organized.







C. What information do you include for each task/topic?

We differentiate between operational (WHAT) and support information (WHY and HOW)

Any intranet should primarily manage the support information associated with a task/topic.

You should start with WHY

D. What info do you display at topic level?

For each such topic, all the types of support information needed by an employee are identified and made accessible in an easy way.

SharePoint Components

All the components below help you to achieve the “zenified” digital employee experience.
They work under SharePoint 2013 - 2019 and Office 365. .
The core of Zenify is to build “How to” pages that are describing each internal service provided by a department.

We are making this process a lot easier by having a component that allows you to create in 5 minutes a full blown "How To" page.

This is made from a template, based on filtering existing data with the specific metadata.

The classic model architecture

is centered on information silos (news, procedures, forms, staff data). The regular employee is required to seek answers searching in several places and using various channels of communication, being exposed to a volume of information higher than he can absorb.

In Zenify architecture model

the employee can find in a single page all the information related to his area of interest he needs. On each such a page he is exposed to announcements, changes, relevant procedures, frequently asked questions, best practices, contacts, tasks to be completed, etc.

We found that such an architecture that facilitates the access to information helps quickly solve problems such as the troublesome change management, the low compliance rates or employee information overload.

Furthermore, the digital experience of the employees becomes a more pleasant one.





Why did we call Zenify our architecture and methodology?

Because we have the conviction, but also the proof of over 45000 employees working with our systems, that the efficiency and effectiveness can be obtained without strain and stress, in a state which we all like to call "zen".

INFORMATION
OPERATIONAL VS SUPPORT INFORMATION
Each and every year the organizations spend large amounts of money for systems such as ERP, CRM or HRIS and do considerable efforts to manage in a reasonable way information like stocks, invoices, account balances, clients’ databases and others. These are operational information and the employees act on them mechanically.

FLUID CHANGES: HOW DID WE NATURALLY MANAGED THE PROCESS OF CHANGE

There are two important moments regarding a change: the first, when occurs and the other when becomes relevant to you, affecting your work.

The first is unique in the entire organization and takes advantage of wide resources and of an almost general mobilization to ensure its communication. T

HOW DOES A "ZENIFIED"
DIGITAL WORKPLACE
WORKS?
HOW DOES A
In spite of the continuous informational stress the employees are subjected, we believe that their work must and can be done in a calm and relaxed environment. We made a creed out of this and we called it "Zenify"; a philosophy behind, designing and building digital workspaces, a name that means for us to do something to be zen.
