Multiquip Using OpenText Social Workplace to Ensure Transparency and Improved Communication Across the Organization

Multiquip logo

Community spaces unite distributed teams, both inside and outside the organization.

If you want to have a company where people take responsibility beyond the normal expectation of the workplace, you need to have transparency and communication across all levels. This is something from the get-go that we wanted and we have accomplished it very well with OpenText Social Workplace.

Michael Hanken, VP of IT at Multiquip
Michael Hanken describes how OpenText Social Workplace virtual communities enable groups of people to work together electronically by sharing opinions, information and processes for improved transparency and collaboration.

Challenge

Multiquip merged two former autonomous divisions into one to reduce overlaps and improve efficiency. That led to a multitude of challenges including the need to:

  • find the best way to communicate the new company identity and message
  • combine formerly disparate groups into new teams
  • cross train product knowledge
  • shift the focus to cross department product development
  • increase transparency in the sales pipeline
