Keeping everything in one basket when it comes to documents, notes, files, tips, solutions, policies and ideas cannot be emphasized enough. When the file you need is located on your colleague's harddrive (who happens to be off sick) you are penalized unnecessarily. One of the big reasons for running a system like Orax SDI in your company is reducing the risk or distributed resources and knowledge. Documents, spreadsheets and policies on the harddisks or distributed and un-secured computers pose a risk to the company in terms of loss-of-data and privacy. If you do not have access to corporate data that you need, your effectivity goes down - and it's not even your fault. Everybody should be able to draw on the mountains of knowledge that have been piling up in your company for the last how many years.
For this reason, Orax SDI has a powerful, integrated knowledge base in the form of Knowledge and Collaboration objects. You can create Articles, Files, Notes in the Document module, and Discussions, Groups and News flashes in the Collaboration module. Dump all the brilliance, experience, solutions, policies and ideas that makes your company unique in Orax SDI so it is readily available to those who need it.
The centralized search function in the Top Bar gives everybody access to the resources they need. This allows your company to be stronger, more experienced and an optimised group of like minded members.
Privacy is an important part of a knowledge base, and you may create private Articles, Notes, Files and Discussions in the system. Once a record is made private, only the Owner and subscribers will be able to view it. This makes it possible for you to manage your own private notes in SDI, as well as notes that should only be shared between a group of people.
Distributing notices and updates between colleagues or team members can be done effectively in Orax SDI by creating a Group of Discussion. You can subscribe individuals or teams, locations, customers, suppliers and other groups.
