Simoona is an open source intranet solution powered by Visma. We created Simoona so your company could make its communication more intuitive, more efficient, more empowering, and more fun. In the open source version you will be able to use the core functions of Simoona. Want to add a feature? No problem, you can either get the full version from us or edit the open source version and make it the best intranet solution for your team. Focus on what's important and create an atmosphere of respect and acknowledgment.
Only the option of speaking up and sharing what one cares about creates the atmosphere of freedom, equality and knowing that every employee matters and will be heard.
Simoona Wall helps to understand what employees are thinking and care about. Give your people the ability to share their thoughts and participate in lively debates and discussions. Having a voice matters to engagement.
Simoona Wall works as simple as any social media wall. Employees can write posts of any length, add pictures, videos links or gif images. Fellow employees can react to the conversation by liking it or adding a comment. Comment section allows users to add any kind of pictures, videos and links.
It sometimes gets hard to wrap your head around all the new faces in the office. That's why Simoona has an Employee list which will help you learn more about your colleagues.
The list consists of the employee’s name and surname, birth date, position at the company, telephone number and work hours. If you want to get down the path of learning more about your colleagues, you can visit their page. There you will be able to find a photo, their email, when did they start working at the company, their senior, workplace, what projects are they on, and something about themselves if they are willing to share.
So all of this will make it so much easier to keep track of who is who and more. This feature is especially valuable for bigger companies or the one’s scattered through different cities or countries.
Social contribution needs to be quantified – that’s why Simoona has a built-in Kudos reward system. Every employee can assign certain points per good deed and demonstrate the recognition to the colleague.
It’s a cornerstone of a social status (and thus a peer pressure): doing a right thing for a team not only is good, but it also tangible and clearly visible to everyone. Any organization can decide on its very own Kudos system design. Kudos employee reward system provides gamification dimension to organizational culture. The important thing is creating work culture provides recognition for social contributors and achievers.
Kudos feature is fast and easy to use. User can pick any fellow employee and set the amount of donated Kudos, reasoning it by describing the good deed or work done by the Kudos recipient.
Simoona consists of two main parts:
- Front-end webapp - purely AngularJS appication (no server-side code),
- Back-end app - ASP.NET MVC+WebApi project, with EntityFramework code-first database.
