Using Podio as an Intranet.

Catherina, a partner at a growing advertising agency, introduced Podio to help employees stay connected across different locations. Let’s call the agency Acme Inc.. Until recently, things were becoming disjointed, with no central place to communicate across the company and handle tasks. Now Podio brings people and processes together, in a tool everyone actually enjoys using.

Vacatations

Vacations

The Vacations app provides a simple calendar for employees to post when they’ll be away. A tile on their intranet dashboard then displays who is away on any given week.

Expenses

Expenses

Whether using her mobile app or at her desk, Catherina can quickly enter expenses through the Expenses app – including a photo of the receipt and the details the finance team need.

Bulletins

Bulletins

When there’s important company news, it’s posted in the Bulletins app. Everyone can then add comments to share their thoughts. It’s far more engaging than the old mass emails they used to send.

Podio in action

Here is a look at how Catherina and her company use Podio on a daily basis to communicate and structure basic processes:

Catherina’s intranet includes a shared activity stream. Everyone in the company can post updates, ask questions and share knowledge – including images, links and documents. It helps create a unified team across their growing company.

Learn how

Every employee at Acme Inc. now has a Podio profile that includes their contact details, a short bio and their skills. Especially when using the mobile app, it’s now much faster to simply find someone’s phone number or basic information like where they work.

When Catherina’s out with a client, she can use the Podio mobile app to enter an expense before she’s even left the bar or restaurant. No longer do receipts need to pile up or get lost.

Learn how

You can add files to almost anything in Podio, conveniently integrating with services like Google Drive and Dropbox. When adding an expense, Catherina simply snaps a picture of the receipt and attaches it to the expense item.

Learn how

Once the expense is added by Catherina, a workflow automatically tasks the finance team to review it. You can set up workflows to eliminate the manual work in your processes – saving time and making sure nothing gets missed or forgotten.

Learn how

Catherina uses the workspace dashboard to store useful links and to provide a guide for how employees can use the apps in the workspace – along with the occasional favourite photo from past company events!

Learn how

Whenever there’s a big company announcement or a success story to share, it’s added to the Bulletins app. The rest of the team can then jump in and discuss the news with comments. You can add comments to any content in Podio.

Learn how

Podio also provides everyone at Acme Inc. with an easy to manage task list. Catherina mainly uses it to set reminders for herself, but she’s also set up recurring tasks for team leaders to contribute their slides to the monthly All Hands meeting.

Learn how

Using Podio’s chat feature, Catherina can easily reach any of her colleagues. Before she had an overflowing inbox, and various teams had adopted different chat tools to communicate. Now they’re all connected in one place.

"We really needed a solution where we had everything in one place, and an overview of what needed to be done, what had been done, and where we were in that process – Podio does just that."
