Pros: Using Poka improves communication between departments and between shifts. The know-how of older employees can be passed on to the new ones and this facilitates training. Also, with Poka, floor employees have a great way to communicate their issues and challenges to their workstations.

Cons: It is difficult to measure the return on investment of such software. It's a long-term process that takes time to measure the benefits.

Poka has changed the way we train our employees and the way we communicate opportunities.

Pros: The concept to have your work methods in a video format is tremendous. It is very effective for training. The activity of producing the video makes us realize weaknesses and is a continuous improvement process itself. Results are excellent and employees like using it.

Cons: The software could be better to track and organize action items. We can assign action items, but I would like more options to filter by status and report by owner.

Overall: We improved communication between shifts, reduced time to resolve issues and also reduced the new employee learning curve.

Pros: The software is supe easy to use, even for people who haven't work on computer or mobile devices. The different features are well seen by the workers and the overall benefits are understood by everyone. The software is also intuitive.

Cons: I would like the software to be accessible on an Android device (via the Poka App). Another missing feature is I would like to include production marapeters that are not related to products.

Overall: We are beginning to see benefits, we will see in the long term!

POKA help a lot in the shift to shift communication as well as the learning process of new hired

Pros: Its really easy to use. Very instinctive. People from POKA are close and love their product and they never hesitate to improve if needed.

Cons: The functional hierarchy is too strict. Also, the searching tools can be use only in the area where you believed that you put the information. A global search function should be added

Great platform, easy and intuitive

Pros: Help on the shop floor visibility and knowledge management. Easiness of use. 21st Century technology that help us get rid of the procedure on paper that nobody is reading. A lot of possibility to go further with the tool.

Cons: The change management it represents within the organization. The adopting curve is well applicable here. The early adopters will get in fastly but you need to find a way of bringing aboard everybody to use it and this is a human challenge.

Overall: true engagement from the employee. Better Shop floor visibility. Capacity to communicate easily and reach rapidly all members of the organization in a bottom-up and top down approach from all level of the organization

Pros: Easy to use with very little training needed. Allows tracking of progress and easily audit who is up to date with guides. A great way to track problems and record history.

Cons: Check lists, or shift reports are not easily tracked. Could use an archive for reports and equipment checks. Would be nice to have guides outside of the work station like a library index

Overall: Communication, great training, a capture of our problems and solutions.

It has been growing pains with an excellent team and product but it is worth it

Pros: Ease of use, documentation capacity and streamlining communications have been key features for us. Possibility to compartiment information's also very useful.

Cons: As I said we started at the beginning of the process so we grew with it, we may have tried to use too many features at once in our context. Poka had refined its support.

Great system, easy to use and great addition in communication and training.

Pros: Easy to use functionalities in communication, knowledge sharing and problem solving. Offers in addition abilty to support training and skill building with overviews through skill matrixes.

Cons: Its open functionality also makes it hard to control what people post.
Working in the cloud increases the need for good IT safety measures.

Pros: Both SOP videos and Plant live feed. Much more efficient to keep up to date the SOP's and the Plant live feed brings better communication between everyone.

Cons: Can be sometimes tough to track back an old post. When an employee mention that he posted a request 3 or 4 months ago and nothing has changed, I'd rather assigned this old post than publish a new one. I wihs we could track them with few key words.

Overall: Communication is way more efficient, technical and precise.

Pros: Easy to use and very intuitive. It was surprisingly easy to implement and we had excellent support from the poka team. Love the fact that we are building a history of how to solve problems. This will help for the years to come.

Cons: Some fonctionalities are not yet available. When you comment a post, the post is not re-prioritized. So commenting on old new is not very usefull since nobody will see it unless they check their notification.

Overall: I get a clear picture of what is going on in the plant. I don`t get a sample of the issues we had this week, I get the full picture of what slows my team down. With Poka I can more quickly identify problems that need to be fixed.
