We partnered with HERE Technologies to increase their employee engagement via an intuitive KMS and quiz module. 

Project Overview

HERE Technologies KMS (Knowledge Junction Portal) ‘Customer Insight’ provides actionable information about customers, products, and programs. The KMS acts as a content hub for HERE Technologies employees that improves understanding, collaboration, and process alignment. Enabling employees to handle repetitive and tactical tasks efficiently, and focus more on high-priority activities.

We partnered with HERE Technologies to elevate their employee experience with an intuitive design that would help users find information effortlessly. We also implemented interest-based notifications along with better search functionality. Our team also engaged with HERE Technologies to build an intuitive quiz module and robust reporting system called as ‘Process Knowledge Test’ that would assess the skills & knowledge of their employees. This module would provide instant reports for quiz takers and for their learning department to make strategic decisions regarding training.

Knowledge Junction Portal – Customer Insight

To ensure maximum employee productivity and engagement we introduced and enhanced the following features for HERE Technologies KMS & PKT.

Better search

We integrated Drupal with the SOLR Search API module and indexed the data on the SOLR server which will be used in the search. We added customized filters as per our client’s requirements. SOLR-based integration helped in improving the performance and delivered a better search functionality for the users.

Personalized notifications

We enabled users to subscribe to specific content or sections of the content via Drupal’s flag module. Based on their subscriptions, the user receives a personalized notification on the site instantly. Our extended notification widget contrib module displays the recently updated content based on the user’s subscription. 

Dashboard

The KMS displayed a snippet of the content to the users; interested users can then access the entire document by clicking on - Request for more details.
We built an admin dashboard, which displays the total number of users who have expressed interest in a particular piece of content. These insights help our client plan their content depending on their user requests.

Integration with Amazon SES

We also enabled personalized email notifications to be sent to the content subscriber every week OR based on the respective users’ configurations. These personalized email notifications contributed to higher adoption rates for HERE Technologies KMS. 

Process Knowledge Test – An intuitive quiz & robust reporting system

We designed and built an intuitive quiz module and reporting system to deepen employee engagement & learning for HERE Technologies with the following features:
