Linchpin: Social Intranet that connects.
Linchpin is a fully customisable communication hub that adapts to the needs as well as the design of your company. The Linchpin intranet is based on Confluence, Atlassian's powerful collaboration software.
In combination with Confluence, Linchpin covers the five most important requirements of a social intranet:
- knowledge management
- expert finder
- microblog and
- personalised news.
The Linchpin Intranet is fully customisable. The personalisation of the intranet is based on the profile settings that the employee makes (e.g. the location, department and/or language of the employee).
The user profile consists of informations such as profile picture, interests and strengths of the employee, further profile fields be created. An LDAP connection is also possible to get the profile information from e.g. an Active Directory.
One central place for all employees to share and exchange content
Linchpin enables your employees to coordinate their daily lives. Access to important documents as well as important information can be transmitted within seconds. If experts are needed for topics, the employees can quickly find exactly the right contact person. This is implemented by a powerful filter function, which is called "Expert Finder", which accesses the profiles of your employees and finds exactly the right expert for each topic. This facilitates cooperation within the company. The functions can also be used across countries or continents. It will be easier for your employees to participate in events or invite colleagues to events. These invitations can be answered within the system.
With Linchpin, communication in your company will be improved. The app 'Enterprise News' will show the latest personalised company news for your employee and 'Microblogging' will show a timeline (similar to Facebook) for direct communication among your employees.
Facilitate cooperation to create more together
Via Linchpin, your employees can communicate on one platform and exchange information with each other. By integrating familiar and company-critical software such as email, phone, and chat software, your employees don't have to sacrifice features such as chats, video calls, or like features on postings. From the collaboration of several teams within a location to the branching of locations worldwide, Linchpin facilitates the communication of your employees. But it is also possible to communicate with business partners or customers via the intranet.
Share content to use knowledge more effectively
Based on the basic structure of Confluence, Linchpin creates a powerful intranet to make documents and information accessible to your employees. Documentation with important operational content is available to all employees. This allows questions to be clarified more quickly. This content can be accessed and called up at any time. With the 'Bring your own device' concept, employees can connect their private devices and establish secure access to the intranet.
With the mobile app 'Linchpin Mobile', every employee is always up to date on a mobile basis. For example, they can receive push notifications, register for events, and view their news panel.
'Linchpin Touch' is available for employees who do not have a fixed PC workstation (e.g. factory employees). With 'Linchpin Touch', for example factory employees can access the intranet in the factory via a large touch screen.
