Your intranet is a great place for sharing non-work-related information with your team, like photos from a team-building event or a charity initiative your company supports. Easily add news to the homepage to show new information in real-time, and amp up the employee experience.
With so many projects and initiatives on the go in a life sciences organization, questions come up daily—and any delay in getting answers only slows things down. Communifire’s employee directory and rich employee profiles empower your team members to quickly find the person who has the information they need to keep their work moving forward. With a few clicks, you can find out a colleagues skills, the workspaces they belong to, and what content they’ve shared on a given subject. Employee profiles encourage peer-to-peer collaboration.
Communifire comes with a rich set of content-creation features that lets you communicate with your team in a variety of ways. Create a wiki page to encourage collaboration on a piece of content, or start a discussion forum to get people talking about a specific topic. Publish an opinion in a blog post or create a survey to get feedback on a corporate initiative. Create content that increases engagement and creates a compelling employee experience.
As a life sciences organization, you have a lot of information to manage. Whether it’s project-specific protocols, or policies and process documents required for GxP compliance, Communifire’s secure document storage and file sharing capabilities allow you to keep your content organized in one central place. Strict permission controls at the folder level ensure that information is protected, so only authorized users have access. With the version control feature, you can rest assured that everyone is always working with the latest information.
Increasingly complex projects involve a larger and more diverse group of stakeholders. Your clinical researchers, project managers, and agency partners all need to work together and stay in-sync. With Communifire’s workspaces, it’s a breeze. You can set up a dedicated space for any project or initiative, and add relevant stakeholders as members, and get down to work. Your “virtual team” has its own “virtual room” where they can share information, brainstorm ideas, and keep conversations going.
Your intranet is more than just a platform for storing information—it’s a digital home for your entire organization. Communifire intranet software lets you fully customize your homepage to incorporate the elements that are unique to your industry and your company’s culture. Add your own logo, draw attention to featured content, and provide links to your most frequently accessed resources. Use your homepage to show your employees and partners that your intranet is an indispensable part of your digital workplace.
Large-scale organizations operate in an increasingly mobile environment. For life sciences professionals, this mobile-first world is a reality. From inside the lab, to clinical trial sites, to doctor’s offices, content has to be accessible with a few clicks. With your Communifire intranet, it is. The Communifire mobile apps are a key part of the digital workplace-they keep your team connected to the information they need, and to each other, from wherever they are.
In any fast-paced organization, no one browses for content, they’re looking for something specific, related to a task at hand. Communifire’s contextual search lets you find relevant information on any topic, in seconds. Results aren’t restricted to documents, you’ll also get conversation threads, employee profiles, and comments in a discussion forum—anything that’s related to your search query. No more wondering if you’ve missed searching in the right place, because Communifire indexes all the content on your intranet so you can find what you need with just a few clicks.
Large-scale projects require a lot of coordination and oversight. To avoid inefficiencies and regulatory exposure, organizations need to make sure their processes and workflows are harmonized and streamlined. Communifire’s project and task management features help you stay on top of all your ongoing projects and track them to completion. Schedule project phases, establish dependencies, assign tasks to individual team members, and set reminders for due dates. Log in any time to check on progress without chasing your team for status updates.
Successful project execution isn’t just about information management—it’s also about time management. The global footprint that so many life sciences projects now have makes managing schedules and time zones more challenging than ever. Communifire makes life much easier. With Communifire’s personal and shared calendars, you can see everyone’s availability at-a-glance and plan your meetings and events accordingly. Send invitations and set reminders right from your calendar. Make updates at any time. The changes will be pushed to every invitee’s calendar automatically.
Teams need dialogue to solve problems and make progress, but email is slow and not everyone can jump on a call at a moment’s notice. Communifire’s team chat enables real-time conversation that’s efficient. Use instant messaging to reach out to another team member or invite several colleagues into a group chat. Whether you’re looking for specific information or just want to bounce an idea off someone for feedback, you can engage with your coworkers immediately.
While it’s useful to know how your community is interacting with the content on your intranet, in some cases, it’s imperative. An auditor might want to see your Standard Operating Procedure for a particular activity—and a record of who has read it. You can use the “Required Reading” feature to ensure that your team members have reviewed mandatory information, and track compliance. Communifire’s version control feature supports audit trails for all documents, so you can reliably trace any updates or changes back to the source. Communifire analytics provide insight into what parts of your intranet your community is engaging with most, so you know what to focus on going forward.
Communifire connects our teams and organizes our projects. And with the vast amount of data we have created, the knowledge base provides a resource for new hires and FAQs.
Keeping information secure in a life sciences organization is non-negotiable. You need to keep proprietary information safe from competitors and meet all legal requirements for keeping patient data confidential and secure.
