Hoozin has always been known for its innovative approach on collaboration. By working with a community based approach, productivity and adoption become tangible, and more importantly, measurable. True knowledge management can only be achieved once a community based solution has been implemented. Hoozin has always had a vision that revolve around the Digital Workplace. Overtime Hoozin aimed to connect all of a organization’s digital assets into one single interface for the end user. This means that a Digital Workplace would need to be entirely user-centric, and not IT-centric. This means we would need to prefer ‘high adoptive tools’ over ‘what we already have’. Only by aiming at adoption can one achieve the ultimate goal: increased productivity and happier employees.
What problems are out there for the common Digital worker?
Hoozin combines community-centric collaboration and deep integration into other real applications to deliver a unified workspace for the modern digital worker. Hoozin fuses together stream based collaboration, corporate news and third party apps into one single experience.
Think about the life of a digital worker today… massive amounts of inbound information, scattered over different applications, source files and ID’s. Every application or business process gets perceived as a hurdle to take. Information comes in disordered and a sense of growing stress is perpetual for the end user. This is a real problem for most modern digital workers. Not to mention that new processes and tools are constantly being thrown at them from ‘above’, assuming they will all love it.
What we need is an easy to use solution that contains profile management, a social stream and collaboration via communities. Hoozin pairs these needs to haves with a static landing page that consists of a consolidated landscape of widgets that represents all relevant applications for the digital user. These widgets ‘compress’ all inbound information, emails, alerts, requests, into one single dashboard. Hoozin aims to eliminate the need to log into different applications and screens to ‘fetch’ information about current and upcoming tasks/project/appointments/meetings. Finally, management and power users can access an ‘information control tower’, where all data and metrics is readily available at a glance.
How would that work technically?
Hoozin has a next generation Widget Builder that allows for the creating of custom Widgets as well as the deployment of standard widgets. These Widgets are the building blocks of the Hoozin Digital Workplace. Hoozin will take care of the design, the content to surface and the back end DevOpps part. These widgets are all web responsive and produce ‘critical’ information, tasks or reports in real-time. They also serve as links for further actions by the end user.
Just ‘tiles’ without a collaboration engine is missing the point. Only collaboration and communities would also be missing the point. The vision is to combine day to day collaboration with the inbound information of the regular end users application landscape.
Hoozin wants to solve the problem of Office 365 adoption, not by putting a ‘de-ugly’ coat on top, but by advertising the right Office 365 asset to the right user when they need it. We are fully focused on end user requirements versus ‘a need to use what we have’. Being end user-centric, in the end, allows for better adoption of your tools and existing IT investments.
Hoozin is of course a Social Intranet ‘out of the box’, so all the ‘voice of the company’ requirements are easily covered, especially with our CMS system.
The Digital Workplace requirements get covered by our smart and cost effective Widget Builder. What’s nice to know, is that the widgets are not under any license agreement. So consume as much Digital Integration as you want!
The Hoozin Widgets are easy to try. Some are standard, like our Hoozin Application Widgets. But also the Office 365 Widgets are fully standard.
The Hoozin Digital Workplace is fully web responsive, integrates with Office 365 and covers all the requirements of a classical Social and Collaborative Intranet.
