A perfect match with our needs

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: Communication is way more efficient, technical and precise.

Pros:

Both SOP videos and Plant live feed. Much more efficient to keep up to date the SOP's and the Plant live feed brings better communication between everyone.

Cons:

Can be sometimes tough to track back an old post. When an employee mention that he posted a request 3 or 4 months ago and nothing has changed, I'd rather assigned this old post than publish a new one. I wihs we could track them with few key words.

Very useful tool. Deliver the promises.

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: true engagement from the employee. Better Shop floor visibility. Capacity to communicate easily and reach rapidly all members of the organization in a bottom-up and top down approach from all level of the organization

Pros:

Help on the shop floor visibility and knowledge management. Easiness of use. 21st Century technology that help us get rid of the procedure on paper that nobody is reading. A lot of possibility to go further with the tool.

Cons:

The change management it represents within the organization. The adopting curve is well applicable here. The early adopters will get in fastly but you need to find a way of bringing aboard everybody to use it and this is a human challenge.

Poka is a good specialized tool

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: Poka was a good program that can help new people utilize and learn procedures. Any more in depth guidelines and customization should be upgraded.

Pros:

I like that it is a quick software application that can be used to access workplace procedures very quickly for anyone who needs it.

Cons:

The branching of different procedure and setup was a bit difficult to process.

Excellent software for internal corporate communication and factory training.

4.0 5 years ago

Pros:

Using Poka improves communication between departments and between shifts. The know-how of older employees can be passed on to the new ones and this facilitates training. Also, with Poka, floor employees have a great way to communicate their issues and challenges to their workstations.

Cons:

It is difficult to measure the return on investment of such software. It's a long-term process that takes time to measure the benefits.

It has been growing pains with an excellent team and product but it is worth it

5.0 5 years ago

Pros:

Ease of use, documentation capacity and streamlining communications have been key features for us. Possibility to compartiment information's also very useful.

Cons:

As I said we started at the beginning of the process so we grew with it, we may have tried to use too many features at once in our context. Poka had refined its support.
