Challenges Faced:

  • Current communication was unfavorable because it was dependent on emails which were inconvenient and confusing
  • Lack of real-time communication between employees and management also within parent company and other franchises
  • HR and CRM work was carried offline which was unorganized and time-consuming
  • Operations in all the franchisees were chaotic and cluttered which led to inefficiency
 

Investigating the cause:

  • No collaborative platform for upward, downward and sideways communication
  • No platform to manage all the HR process within an organization
  • Delay in announcements going viral which hampers work productivity
  • Need for common system to communicate with employees from franchises
 

Strategy Devised

  • Integrated uKnowva in Uniglobe Travel (South Asia).
  • Special attention was paid to build one common platform where employees can easily connect and communicate across various franchises
  • HRMS and CRM was integrated with Intranet for all the franchises

"uKnowva has helped us create a very simple and easy to use Intranet+HRMS system. It works awesome on all devices. We can now interact with all our employees and our franchisee employees as well who are distributed across the world with a click of a button. They helped us create our self-branded Mobile Apps as well. On top of it they have an excellent support team with a very short TAT. I reported a minor issue but it was resolved within a couple of days."
