💡 The solution

A wiki platform that allows employees to share their documents and contribute to the evolution of projects.

🎯Goals reached

  • Setting up of an online Wiki
  • Saving time everyday
  • Genuine work tool

''The platform really acts as a source of knowledge performance and promotes better cohesion in team work '' tells Pierre Georges Anquetin, director of the hydraulic lab of Artelia who gives his testimonial on his experience on the use of the wiki.

Issue

Being able to manage a project's evolution in a collaborative way and facilitate data sharing.

For Mr.Anquetin, it is an evidence that the presence of the wiki is a necessity to be able to communicate on projects without difficulty and improve every mission. With the ongoing crisis, the sectors of knowledge management and the open source have been sollicitated by the enterprises, that have to be particularly attentive to new exigences and have to be adapted being still productive and reactives.

Le wiki

The wiki has 3 to 4 contributors and 40 to 50 persons can comment on the wiki.

The contributors of the site can participate in the maintenance of the tool. They document the preparations of fixed models. The contributors share documents like drawings, videos or schematics.

This place of exchange lets you avoid duplicate entries and documents, and become essential in the working organization. Every person can find the documents or articles they are looking for thanks to the built in search engine on the site, even after several months without working on it.

''A genuine work tool, the site developped with Wiki Valley serves as a reporting and documentation base for all the employees of the company.''

Results

An opensource plateform that allows for document sharing where everyone can contribute.

At the beginning, contributors tried to use the wiki as a tool for the Artelia group but everybody appropriated it, and now different projects can be realized on the platform (for example the 10 years of anniversary of the site).

For the director of the laboratory, the simplicity of the wiki is primordial because employees need a site that is easy to access and easy to use. Users can check anything at any moment simplifying information sharing and its analysis.

After 3 months, the employees know their way around the tool and can use it everyday for their work. When there is a report to be made, it can be published in one of the wiki's pages. Through this tool, we can directly update any document and enrich them. This encourages the creation of new pages and new contributions.
