Alterra::Wiki – the Central Knowledge Hub for Your Company
Alterra::Wiki is the ideal business wiki for storing and distributing information within the company in such a way that every employee has access to the best possible knowledge about products and current projects. That means that this is the place where the background knowledge necessary for the success of your company can be stored. In Alterra::Wiki you store all relevant articles and files, actively inform each other, or keep everyone up to date by being automatically informed about important news. If combined with Alterra::PIM, it offers a structure that allows the comprehensive management of product-related knowledge. Alterra::Wiki intranet software is therefore an important building block for the digitalization of your company.
Use the Alterra business wiki to the benefit your business!
Alterra::Wiki is accessible to everyone, easily searchable and collaboratively extensible – an intranet software with new possibilities. Everyone in the company can read content in Alterra::Wiki to keep up with news and processes, but they can also access it to create texts and upload files themselves. This content can in turn be edited and supplemented by colleagues. The modular structure of Alterra::Wiki allows you to combine standard functions with your individual needs.
The knowledge hub in product development
In combination with the other function modules of the Alterra software product family, Alterra::Wiki proves particularly useful in product development. Products that are marked with the status “in development” in Alterra PIM can be directly referenced here. The status and the information set in the PIM are synchronized directly into the enterprise wiki, so that all members of the development team are always fully informed about the development status of a product.
Benefits for all employees:
Transparency: All employees are on the same level of knowledge about internal standards, projects and news.
Making knowledge available and preserve it:
Internal company knowledge remains easily accessible via the business wiki – even after employees have left the company – and is stored centrally. The transfer of knowledge in the event of a change of employees during a current project is made easier.
Optimize work processes:
Files and information that should be freely accessible to employees can be viewed and downloaded from Alterra::Wiki. This allows employees to inform themselves independently. Instructions and contacts for individual topics can also be stored in the enterprise wiki.
Promote cooperation and employee retention:
Posted information can be supplemented by all employees. The possibility of voluntary participation and interdepartmental exchange will contribute positively to your corporate culture and the involvement of your employees.
Overview of the key features of the Alterra enterprise wiki
Enter information and store files
Via the Navigator user interface, information can be quickly entered into the intranet software and files can be easily uploaded. Alterra::Wiki is used, for example, for internal how-tos, project work, staff notifications, changes to security regulations, current work instructions, new suppliers, white papers, best practices, photos from company events and much more.
Automatic assignment of posts
The posted information and contributions automatically appear in the categories specified by their author. It is possible to select several categories here.
Employees who want to be kept up to date on certain topics subscribe to these topics and are automatically notified via the intranet software as soon as new posts or files are posted.
All changes to posts are tracked by the system and can be accessed via the handy Helper bar. This helps to keep everyone up to date with respect to the chronological development of an issue.
Finding information quickly
Alterra’s enterprise wiki offers a powerful search and filter mechanism across the entire content. Searches are made via the Navigator user interface using keywords or, alternatively, a tree structure. Information that was previously only accessible in the company via GateKeeper is now available independent of specific persons. New employees can also use Alterra::Wiki as a helpful tool to familiarize with the company and their work environment.
Adjusting user interfaces to corporate identity
Both the editor and the intranet portal can be adapted to your company’s CI with just a few clicks. This makes sure that all users feel visually “at home” in the application.
Easy and intuitive to use
The Navigator user interface is intuitive to use, so that every employee can add information to the business wiki even without any prior knowledge making it so much easier for everyone to support the joint creation of the central information pool.
Reports and dashboards
You can get a quick overview of the state of information in Alterra::Wiki via individual reports in the dashboard. Here, you can see, for example, how many posts on specific topics are available in the business wiki or how many new files were added in a defined period of time. The reports can be completely customized to suit your individual needs.
Alterra’s enterprise wiki, Alterra::Wiki, opens up new ways of communication, project management and process optimization. With this modern tool, which is quickly implemented and easy to use, your company will reach another milestone on the way to digitalization.
