DEEP™ is more than a cool corporate alternative for the facebooking, instragramming employee. It has turned the traditional approach on its head and empowered the end users to freely communicate, exchange ideas and be far for productive. It goes a step ahead- it measures how well you are able to engage your workforce! It goes a step ahead- it measures how well you are able to engage your workforce!
The traditional intranet as we know it is in serious need of re-modeling. Visionaries have embraced the new paradigm that you need to compete with the coolest apps to catch your employee’s attention. Loosing the battle means disengagement – lower productivity, communication gaps, disorientation – all contributing to lower revenues and in some extreme cases attrition.
And yet the most extra-ordinary part of the engagement story is that while a dated intranet spells doom, a well aligned intranet can achieve results, unimaginable before the social revolution. Imagine your employees hooked on to the intranet, checking the corporate IM the first thing in the morning. The results can be truly scintillating for an organization that wants complete alignment to visions and goals.
DEEP™ is designed to fit this particular void in the intranet space. The design principles are straightforward – One stop, Simple, Visual, Current with more power to the users. Open Source in DNA, it fits snugly into your software ecosystem. The delivery is SaaS based with per user per month costing. Hosting is supported for both cloud and on-premise deployments. The design is completely responsive and comes equipped with embedded audio/video calling tools leveraging webRTC.
DEEP™ empowers the employee. Instantaneous updates, instantaneous Task feeds, global News Feeds and instant Gratification that balance work and life. It provides a voice to the employee and builds a cohesive group of enthused people. It also enables managers/decision makers to know what his/her team is working on, how they are feeling about themselves and what their strengths/weaknesses are. This is what DEEP™ brings to you, within ONE platform. No more multi-systems, no more disengagement.
Measure Employee Engagement!What sets the product apart is what it can achieve for the policy drivers. It measures the nuances and behaviors of employees to help understand if corporate engagement strategies are truly able to engage employees. HR and employee engagement professionals can get a birds-eye view of engagement across locations, roles, teams, projects, gender and age groups and yet this is just the tip of the iceberg. DEEP™ can help you discover potential leaders in the organization, find hidden talents, seize opportunities to form opinions and measure employee sentiment. The potential is limitless. With DEEP™, you continue to explore the human facet of reporting. The product can be tweaked to make it more sensitized to employee behavior.
DEEP™ starts at as low as $1 per user per month.
Below is a glimpse into a few select features. A complete demo/trial version is available on request.
First Impressions matter!
Engagement AnalyticsDEEP™ algorithms measure employee contributions, eliciting unforeseen insights into their behavior. All employee activity – Likes, content uploads, profile views, followers tc. is assigned a weight based on its importance and fed into a metric that computes the engagement level of the employee. The final statistic is graded into 3 major categories – Good, Average, Poor. This information can be displayed or hidden from the employee depending upon company discretion. This computation is also performed at a group level – teams, projects, locations - and can be drilled down to the individual level.
