Primary uses

Understand what other departments are doing

As part of the disruptive world of work, the meaningfulness of processes and procedures is often discussed. However, in order to understand the value of one's own work and that of the colleagues, it is important to look over each other's shoulders from time to time and to create an understanding of the activities of other employees. This not only helps employees better understand the tasks of others, but can also allow them to incorporate new perspectives into their own way of working. Through this interdepartmental exchange, internal knowledge silos are automatically broken down, and the emergence of a silo mentality is prevented. With the help of our solution, you can easily match colleagues according to different job shadowing criteria. You determine the key data for this individually for your company.
