In-house developments for Valo

We’re often contacted by customers with similar requirements that can’t be covered by the out-of-the-box features of Valo or SharePoint Online. In order to meet these needs, we have developed generic, flexible concepts and solutions which can be integrated into any intranet solution with minimal effort – with or without Valo as a basis. They include:

  • Knowledge Management – WIKI
  • QMS, Process Integration
  • Product Management information
  • Guest Access Management

The “WIKI”, “QMS” and “Product Management” modules are designed so that they can be configured by customers themselves without requiring any development of their own. The basis for this is the use of metadata, which in turn is defined in the terminology memory of SharePoint Online. Together with the customer, Boss Info defines the desired structure at the start of the project and trains the subsequent editors and superusers with the aim that they can expand the solution independently later on. This way, we can ensure collaboration solutions are perfectly tailored to businesses.

Knowledge Management – WIKI

The “Knowledge Management – WIKI” module for our SharePoint solutions allows our customers to share their employees’ knowledge. We see the knowledge database as a central instrument in onboarding and the induction of new employees. Knowledge of products, methodologies, site information etc. is recorded in a structured manner and displayed as required in different contexts. So the WIKI module covers the requirements of a modern information system.

Michèle Kammermann, Specialist Project Administrator, Unia trade union

«As part of a reorganization, our team was merged with two other teams to form a new department. Our knowledge database Wiki allows us to make our broad and diverse knowledge easily accessible to the entire department. Thanks to the categorization of the Wiki pages, the clear structure of the homepage and the effective search function, staff can quickly access existing knowledge in the form of Wiki articles. Each employee in the department has author rights so can post new Wiki articles themselves, which are then available for the entire organization to read. Using the SharePoint approval process, each Wiki article is checked by our team of editors before publication. And we’re also interested in using SharePoint’s multilingual functionality, which makes it easy to get our Wiki pages translated into German, French and Italian.»
