Teams that need to work across geographic locations can use Semlr to collaborate more effectively and stay aligned. Users can better coordinate when needing to produce status reports, create system documentation, share design documents, introduce process changes, communicate policy information, present standards and best practices, transfer internal know-how, and discuss strategic direction.
Using Semlr to support these activities reduces the burden that is currently assumed by leaders and domain experts. Analytics within the platform provide insight into consumption, which can help prioritize content maintenance efforts. This leads to less stale information and therefore better reliance on online resources, making distributed teams more productive.
Semlr can be the shared content repository for internally created and externally sourced files. Contribution is easy with drag-n-drop. You don’t need a “right” folder to place your file within, it can simply live in Semlr. Users consume content within Semlr by web browsing, without needing to download and open a file to discover what it contains.
Content may be optimally structured for different teams. It does not need to be a one-size-fits-all. For instance, it might be organized differently for Marketing than for Sales. The same content may appear in more than one place in order to give it appropriate visibility.
Semlr can offer a strategic solution for enterprise documentation. Capturing proprietary knowledge relies on domain experts. Semlr allows for easy contribution and maintenance of content. Experts can author in the tool of their choice, e.g., PowerPoint&tmark;, and drag-n-drop files into Semlr.
Semlr also offers a unique consumption experience. Users can skim and browse content natively within their browser, without having to download and open files to discover what they contain. Content can be reused and repurposed for training and onboarding material.
Semlr also helps organizations keep their documentation from going stale. Analytics provide insight into how content is being consumed and where value is being derived. Content contributors are naturally motivated to keep their topics current where they see a return on their effort.
Just-in-time training, served in modular chunks, customized to meet the specific needs of a user - this is what Semlr can deliver. Using an incremental approach, a library of knowledge containing both proprietary and generic content can be built over time. Experts can easily contribute topics that they author (simple drag-n-drop), including video or audio clips.
Content contributors get insight into what topics are being used and are then motivated to keep them current. With Semlr, training can be offered in small segments, as it is needed, and completely personalized for the end-user, thereby improving time-to-market and productivity for your organization.
Semlr can shorten the time taken to on-board a resource. What is often a bespoke process, can be systematized with the support of content within Semlr. Subject matter experts, who are generally tasked with imparting their know-how to new resources, with minimal effort can contribute topics of knowledge into Semlr.
Creating a personalized onboarding curriculum is easy with Semlr. Relevant content can be curated, assembled, and exported to a variety of formats, in order to best meet the user’s needs. Tracking functionality can help verify that the content is being consumed.
Maintaining the knowledge library becomes more effective with the benefit of Analytics. It is easy to see where value is being delivered, which topics get the most traffic, and therefore what content needs to be prioritized in terms of keeping current.
Semlr can be used as a Learning platform for the organization when it comes to imparting proprietary knowledge. Course content created by internal domain experts can be authored in the tool of their choice e.g. PowerPoint with embedded multi-media clips; and easily be contributed to Semlr via drag-n-drop. Updating content is equally simple.
Consumers of content can slice-n-dice the material based on their needs, and can assemble a customized course. Or an internal trainer can build a course just-in-time from a library of available topics, ahead of teaching a class. With Semlr’s live document feature, all material that is reused and reassembled is guaranteed to be the current version.
Tracking and Analytics features within Semlr can help verify that course content has been consumed. Metrics provide insight into knowledge transfer activities, and can be motivating for the domain expert to see the results of their effort.
Sales teams can use Semlr to assemble and share client proposals and business cases. When producing a proposal or a pitch book, content from the library can be custom assembled, just-in-time, targeted to a specific opportunity. Distributed responsibility for content can be achieved, with client-facing teams managing their specific content, and internal teams managing a shared library of reusable material.
The live document feature within Semlr ensures that assembled documents are automatically updated when source content changes. This is a significant productivity and quality win for teams that are dispersed, who have different functions, but have to stay coordinated on messaging and content.
Semlr can be used as a platform to share content with a client or partner in a completely secure and measurable way. It can be investor related material, proposals, business cases, research insight, or education content. Using Semlr’s deep link feature instead of sending a document attached to an email, clients will always access the latest version of the content (even if it is updated post sending of the link).
Analytics provide insight into what topics the client has read, how many times and when they read it, or if the link was sent to another person who may then access the content. Unlike sending content via email, which is not secure and can be a “black box”, Semlr provides the ability to securely share content while tracking and still being in control of one’s intellectual property.
Semlr can be used to create rich, immersive, and collaborative websites to meet specific client needs. It can be for a client event, communication activities, training material, or for transferring knowledge at the end of an engagement.
No IT expertise is required to build and operate the site. Content is authored in standard tools, e.g. PowerPoint. Content that is common across multiple micro sites can be shared and reused, without increasing the overhead of managing it. Analytics within Semlr provide insight into how content is being consumed and where value is being delivered.
