We weren’t using any online collaboration tool before the fall of 2015, although our team is forty strong and we constantly work with a dozen providers at the same time. As you may imagine, we are actually a cluster of a large number of collaborative projects. We set up both Office 365 and Wimi to cover all of our needs. Wimi’s access rights make it easier to manage our three kinds of stakeholders: our internal teams, our providers and our clients.
We had heard about Wimi and we knew that support was available. This is what made up our minds because we thought implementing a new software without support was very risky.
And we like the fact that Wimi is a French startup. Not really because of data security but because we like the idea that we are helping develop a French startup to develop.
The integration of Google Doc within Wimi also weighed in. It allows various contributors to work simultaneously on a document and find it with the rest of them. We organize every morning a ‘morning briefing’ with our teams. We spend 15 to 30 minutes sharing key information, news on our clients and explaining how the day will go. All of this is kept in a Google Doc that we save on our Wimi. It is a strong message which states collaboration as a principle: the whole team must have up-to-date information on the project.
Wimi Drive is a very useful functionality. We enjoy being able to gather all of our files in one place and organize them as we always do and navigating through the workspaces is made especially easy.
Last but not least, access rights allow us to manage everything from one single app. Not all files need to be shared with the whole team, as for instance business plans, budgets, human resources files… They are not shared with the rest of the team but are saved on our Wimi. Wimi allows us to manage granularity on one single app.
