Reviews of Poka
Very useful tool. Deliver the promises.
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
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.
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.
Excellent software for internal corporate communication and factory training.
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.
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
Ease of use, documentation capacity and streamlining communications have been key features for us. Possibility to compartiment information's also very useful.
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.
A perfect match with our needs
Comments: Communication is way more efficient, technical and precise.
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.
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.
Perfect for small and large businesses
We've been using Poka for more than a year now. In a year, the software and the app as evolved a lot to become better and better. I really like the fact we now have access to training content on our Iphones.
I would like the app to be accessible on Android so every worker could use the app on their personal phones
