Meet Akumina’s new Employee Experience Platform

One-size-fits-all is rarely the case and nowhere more so than when it comes to creating a digital workplace experience. Intranet-in-a-box solutions can fall flat when it comes to third-party integrations and customized branding, but enhancements and upgrades create headaches and ruin the experience that a modern intranet should provide.

That’s why we created the Akumina Employee Experience Platform (EXP), to meet the needs of our customers who want their digital workplace technology to expand and evolve along with them. How did we achieve this? Let’s break it down into six simple parts:

Modern Intranet

Not all your users are the same, which is why a one-size-fits-all intranet solution can’t deliver the right personalized experience to each user. Our modern intranet abstracts and decouples the experience your employees consume, and the technology required on the back end to create and deliver that experience. Put simply, every person receives the experience and information they need to optimize their productivity.

Communications Platform

Right, wrong, or indifferent, news is a core piece of every workplace transformation, but it shouldn’t be one-sided. The Akumina platform allows for multi-direction and real-time communication, bringing together the right people, content, documents, and events that are critical to the success of any enterprise. Our platform also supports 210 languages with “any source” starting language for a truly multilingual and multimarket approach to communications.

Collaboration Engine

Collaboration is the one word and mechanism inside enterprises that can literally mean something different to everyone – there’s team collaboration (general instant messaging) and entity-based collaboration (structured and centered on one topic at a time). While one is ongoing and evolutionary, the other has a specific beginning, middle and end. Akumina doesn’t differentiate. Our platform connects all components of a project together from tasks, milestones, conversations, documents, and more, into a single-user experience. Users can work together in one place and in real-time without jumping between multiple applications, chat tools, and email to get work done efficiently.

Integration Layer

A limitless approach to integration is what drives Akumina’s ability to grow and expand with your organization. We provide ready-made connections to leading systems like Concur, ServiceNow, Workday, PeopleSoft, Salesforce, Kronos, and others, including enterprise custom back-end systems – while allowing our customers to extend and evolve the integration layer to meet their specific needs. Worried about compliance? Don’t be. Akumina’s unique approach to integration means that our employee experience platform doesn’t store your data and adheres to your internal security practices and guidelines while also supporting global compliance regulations including HIPPA, GDPR, and others.

Enterprise Native Mobility

The Akumina native mobile app is built to be deployed through your private app store to all your enterprise’s iOS and Android devices, whether company supplied or bring-your-own, all while being centrally managed through the Akumina platform. This results in a native mobile app delivered to employees that is designed, branded, and built for the organization.

Decoupled (or ‘Headless’) Content Management System

AppManager – our agnostic CMS – combines the power of an enterprise CMS and the simplicity of the app-based interface on any mobile device. That means you can grow and expand your site without the complexity that requires developer assistance. Plus, users can manage content through an abstraction layer, which avoids the hassle of duplicating and recreating content on a template or series of pages and links.

So, what does all this mean for you? It means that the dusty old intranet of the past is but a distant memory. It means that your organization has communication and content capabilities that are timely, audience-specific, slick, and intuitive. It means that you’ll save time and resources while gaining an EXP for your modern intranet that grows over time with your business, with no limitations.

We’re excited for you to see the Akumina Employee Experience Platform in action, and see for yourself how easy it can be to love the way you work. Schedule a demo today.
