DiggSpace is now available in Microsoft Teams
To accelerate digital transformation, Create IT has made DiggSpace, a ready-to-use digital workplace platform, available on the Microsoft Teams appsource. The goal is to facilitate access and allow organizations to build modern and digital work environments simply and quickly. DiggSpace already has clients in 3 languages and 7 industries, having recently also entered large hospitals and insurance companies.
Lisbon, July 25, 2022 – Create IT, a Portuguese company focused on the development of business-critical multiplatform systems, with the deepening of the partnership with Microsoft and the objective of accelerating companies' digital transformation, started to provide DiggSpace, its SaaS platform for rapidly building next-generation Intranets, in Microsoft 365 through Teams.
In addition to the agile setup that characterizes the tool, DiggSpace now also provides easy access from the Teams appsource, with just a quick search to find the application. The creation of digital and modern workplaces becomes simple and fast, which is especially relevant in this era of hybrid work.
The new application is free for customers and will initially include DiggSpace's most used features, such as articles, news, quick links, favorite apps, Intranet channels and Dashboard365 to monitor each user's workload. But the goal is to gradually make all the others available for direct access via Microsoft Teams, making the creation and updating of content much faster, easier and more dynamic.
As in the web version of the platform, customers will have access to direct communication channels with the product team to suggest improvements, which will allow them to have an application that always meets the evolving needs of its users.
DiggSpace's pricing model is based on a monthly subscription and varies depending on the number of users. For example, for 100 it's €4.75 per user/month, if it's 1000 it drops to €1.5. The simulation can be done here.
According to Henrique Ferreira, Director of the Hoti Hotéis Group, who selected DiggSpace as a centralized internal communication platform, “The new Intranet arises to respond to the dimension that the Group has reached and the new demands of our customers and suppliers, making it essential to the creation of an agile communication space with all employees and an adaptation of working methods. The previous system had limitations in both the ability to share documentation and collaboration. With our teams at the heart of our success, we needed to take this step to improve engagement and streamline processes.”
By enabling various types of integration, either with Microsoft applications or with other customized applications, DiggSpace works as a digital atrium that aggregates all the tools necessary for the day-to-day of each employee, which reduces the time spent jumping between applications or even searching for them when they are not easily accessible.
“DiggSpace has been the platform of choice for creating a digital work environment in leading companies such as Trivalor, the Hoti Hotéis group, SportTV, Ceentrus and Medway/MSC, as well as in several sectors: healthcare, media, tourism, logistics, banking and insurance. We wanted to bring the best of all the ideas received and it was a natural step to make the platform available in the communication channel most present in users' daily lives: Microsoft Teams. The continuous evolution of the product and its growing adaptation to the real needs of customers will always be a priority”, highlights Gustavo Leitão, Head of DiggSpace.
“With DiggSpace, we not only managed to centralize in one place the sharing of events and initiatives that are happening in the company and in the industry, but we also allow employees to know better their colleagues through individual profiles”, says Carlos Vasconcelos, Medway Administrator.
Key challenges companies can overcome with DiggSpace include:
- Knowledge management
- Collective intelligence
- Digital transformation/transformation of the way of working
- Business collaboration
- Business continuity (security, ubiquity,evergreen)
DiggSpace is a platform that allows the creation of ready-to-use intranets, enabling companies to communicate bidirectionally with all employees, sharing information, collecting feedback and encouraging teamwork and collaboration. All this while maintaining the corporate identity and taking advantage of Office 365 features. The digital work environment is easily configured and managed by the business users, requiring no technical skills. More information at https://www.diggspace.com
