Well-networked in the home office

Video Networking

Many people currently work from home, which is undoubtedly challenging. Random encounters at the coffee machine, shared lunch breaks in the canteen or short conversations in the hallway – none of this happens at times. Support your employees in maintaining personal contact with colleagues (at least virtually). Our tool selects participants at random and organizes lunches and coffee breaks in a video conference.

How Video Networking works

One-time, individual registration

We create a customized registration page for your company. Your employees register independently via browser or smartphone. Click here for an example.

Regular, automated calendar invitations

Participating employees regularly receive calendar invitations for mutual lunches and coffee breaks in a video conference.

Matching and notification

Once an employee accepts the invitation, he gets matched with a colleague and receives an updated calendar entry with a link to enter the video conference.

Features

Networking in the home office

Smart networking despite physical distance. Lunches and coffee breaks (even if only online) strengthen the feeling of solidarity and keep the team spirit high.

Can be used with any video conferencing system

The video lunches and coffee breaks can be held with any video conferencing system, such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Skype, Teamviewer, WebEx or via our own video solution.

Extensive preference settings

Users can make various settings, e.g. select preferred weekdays and specify the frequency of invitations.

Automated appointment coordination

Workdate not only matches the participants but also coordinates the appointments. The tool sends appointment requests, processes the answers, and blocks the times in the calendar.

Selectable group size

The video lunches and coffee breaks can take place in pairs or in a group.

Multilingual

Workdate supports many languages. During registration, a user can specify the language for further communication.

User profile

Users can log in to their profile, make changes, adjust preferences, or terminate their participation at any time.

Online dashboard for project managers

Project managers have access to an online dashboard. This dashboard indicates real-time information on the number of participants, activity rate, number of video meetings held, attendance and cancellation rates, and much more.
