 The Who, What, and Where

Scenario: 

Alexis Lively is a new Account Manager at SilcomTech. As part of her on-boarding, she downloaded the SilcomTech Campus app to help her in day to day productivity, connections, and awareness. SilcomTech is a huge campus sprawling 500,000 square feet to accommodate close to 1,200 employees. That's a lot of places and a lot of faces for Alexis to get to know. 

 

On day 2, Alexis was curious to see who was part of her larger team, so she opened the Directory to look at the organization structure she is part of. She was able to view her boss, and her boss' boss, as well as other people that her boss manages, which was a great way for Alexis to learn about the different team members and direct reports. She clicked on a co-worker's profile and connected with them via the app and on LinkedIn effortlessly so she could become better acquainted. .

 

On day 3, she met someone in the cafeteria and wanted to learn more about them as they were kind and offered to give her some insights on a few projects they were working on as well as some insights on clients. So again, Alexis opened the Directory and looked up Jon B. Selling. 

 

At the end of the week, Alexis needed to connect with Mary Plansit, Briefing Program Manager, so she could get a demo of the Customer Briefing Center and learn about some of their guiding in-person customer experience principles, so she looked up Mary in the Directory. Since Alexis wasn't too familiar with Mary was located and in what building, she opted to get directions to Mary's desk in Building A. Using the SilcomTech Campus app, Alexis easily followed the real-time directions straight to Mary just in time for their 10:00am meet and greet.
