Ubikey reinvents itself with Ubikey Office

Ubikey offers a hybrid ver­sion of its visu­al man­age­ment solu­tion, Ubikey Office, to respond to the cur­rent evo­lu­tion of work. Ubikey is an idea that was launched in 2009 at UTC with the project of the inter­ac­tive touch table of the UTC-Costech laboratory. 

Ubikey announces its inno­v­a­tive visu­al man­age­ment solu­tion: Ubikey Office. This col­lab­o­ra­tive soft­ware allows any employ­ee to fol­low the real time evo­lu­tion of a project on a tablet, smart­phone, com­put­er, at the same time as it is dis­played on the com­pa­ny’s inter­ac­tive screen. Each employ­ee can thus view and inter­act on the dig­i­tal Post-it board, wher­ev­er he or she is, on his or her own mis­sions as well as those of the whole team for greater effi­cien­cy. This tool has already been adopt­ed by com­pa­nies such as Sanofi, Thales, Bouygues, Miche­lin and Ari­ane Group. “I am respon­si­ble for con­tin­u­ous improve­ment with­in Ari­ane Group and, in this capac­i­ty, I lead work­shops where many exer­cis­es are the sub­ject of Post-it work­shops. With the health cri­sis, a pro­to­col has been put in place with­in Ari­ane Group lim­it­ing con­tact and han­dling of objects such as the famous paper Post-it notes. Ubikey offers a last­ing solu­tion beyond the cri­sis, since this envi ron­ment allows me to run the work­shops both face-toface and remote­ly, with par­tic­i­pants shar­ing the han­dling of Ubikey at the begin­ning of each work­shop”, says Jean-Marc Goy­on, Improve­ment & Change man­ag­er with the Ari­ane Group, who has suc­cess­ful­ly exper­i­ment­ed with var­i­ous con­crete uses such as visu­al per­for­mance man­age­ment, World Café work­shops or an inter­ac­tive game board based on lean management. 

A response to the needs of companies during the crisis

“With Ubikey Office, we want to be part of the cur­rent evo­lu­tion of work, i.e., the pres­ence for each com­pa­ny of employ­ees present on site and oth­ers work­ing remote­ly at home. The ambi­tion is to keep all its teams involved and informed, in real time, as to the evo­lu­tion of a project in a con­text where the health cri­sis is forc­ing com­pa­nies to man­age their teams dis­trib­uted both on site and remote­ly”, assures Atman Kendi­ra, CEO of Ubikey. Cre­at­ed in 2015 fol­low­ing research work car­ried out at UTC, this start-up now has nine employ­ees and a num­ber of pres­ti­gious cus­tomers, includ­ing Sanofi, Plas­tic Omni­um and Sor­bonne Uni­ver­si­ty. Ubikey also ben­e­fits from strong sup­port from its insti­tu­tion­al part­ners BPI-France, the Hauts-de-France region, Paris & Co, UTC, French Tech and the Cap Dig­i­tal com­pet­i­tive­ness clus­ter. “Visu­al man­age­ment, in these trou­bled times, appears to be the solu­tion to bet­ter man­age these teams,” con­cludes Julien Bel­lenger, Direc­tor of Devel­op­ment at Ubikey. “Nev­er before has the need for mean­ing and a glob­al and rapid under­stand­ing of the project one is involved in been so impor­tant for employ­ees around the world. Ubikey is a long-term tool for a new way of work­ing that will be both face-to-face and remote and which we describe as a hybrid.”
