Octonius: The Perfect Digital Workplace

Cosmin Ciobanu, Founder & CEO
Covid-19 has crept in the regularity of almost every business comprising small to a large workforce. The workforces are confined to work from home as organizations are figuring out the best way to keep the operations up and running during the pandemic. While some of them struggle and some are successfully able to adapt to the “temporary” new normal, there’s a high chance that remote working is here to stay. But video meetings often become a tetchy affair due to common problems like network issues, misunderstandings, interruptions, and the inability to reach out to co-workers whenever required. However, the new workplace experience brings in modern tools to enterprise users with a focus on greater productivity and an office-like environment at home. With the aim of knowledge exchange, team collaboration, and work management, Octonius brings to the plate an all-in-one solution.

The Palo Alto-based Octonius has the perfect plan of a digital workplace through its new operating system that makes teamwork feasible. So, there’s no more lag in work by using the wrong communication tools or having to use email to send out work documents. Octonius’ solution manages work and people in an asynchronous way, with a deep focus on decluttered daily activities and tasks. “Our solution is a platform that revolves around the core elements of creating a group of people,” says Cosmin Ciobanu, Founder & CEO. By group, Ciobanu meant a project, small team, department, or transversal team of vertical working with a Facebook like activity feed and sharing updates of their work.

Moreover, Octonius provides tools for automation that help its clients to create customized workflows and automatically assign tasks depending on specific workflows. The company also brings forth some particular functionalities that allow creating a conversation around a file similar to tagging or mentioning a person on Facebook. Apart from the functionalities mentioned above, Octonius inculcates machine learning and artificial intelligence within the platform to contextualize information based on the preferences of its clients.

Treading on the philosophy of precision, Octonius, in collaboration with its clients, brings something unique by understanding the core requisites.
Keeping in mind the individual needs of the clients, a specific team, or a temporary innovation garage is formed that co-designs specific functionalities. This way, clients have the latest version of the products, consisting of tools that are designed as per their choice. Such an individualistic approach differentiates Octonius from the rest of the players in the marketplace. “From onboarding to providing the clients with the solution is more like a symbiosis, being actively present during the whole development process,” mentions Ciobanu.

Exemplifying the extraordinary capabilities of the Octonius platform, Ciobanu narrates a client success story. The client is a prominent automotive company with an employee strength of over 30,000. In managing the work among its employees, the client was primarily depending on excel files for cross functional projects and using email as a mode of communication for the users. As this whole process was disrupting the speed of work and engagement between employees, the client approached Octonius, who offered a dedicated system. The system eased out task management of transversal and vertical projects. It also made the work process smooth as updating the task in the system marks everything at once rather than sending emails or updating it in the excel sheets. Further, the client started using the group within the system to create knowledge and share the best practices that changed the whole employee retention rate.

The high spirited Octonius team focuses on being the pathfinders in the future of work and envisions to create new ways of working in the digital workplace with consummate innovation. Machine learning and artificial intelligence continue to be an integral part of the development process as the company plans to automate and build a smarter workflow. With all these technologies in place, the platform will mark the completed tasks without any human interaction and simplify the workplace experience for all.
