About Poka

Poka is a knowledge management and training platform built for manufacturers of every size that enables training, knowledge sharing and troubleshooting right on the factory floor. Workers get access to a standardized knowledge base of procedures, guides, solutions, and settings related to the organization’s workstations, production lines, and equipment, directly from their smartphone or tablet.

Poka facilitates collaboration between shifts and departments in order to help workers quickly find solutions to factory floor issues. Workers can benefit from collective expertise by sharing their knowledge to help immediately solve problems at the most critical times. Users are able to focus on important events by keeping up-to-date on the factory in real time via the factory feed and simplify daily operations, from management tasks to production processes. Organizations can invite each employee to share information through Poka’s communication channels, enabling them to add comments to posts, assign tasks, and mention others in comments and posts in order to bring issues or questions to their attention.

A log of events helps identify previous problems related to particular equipment, products, or workstations, and recurring equipment problems can be resolved by reviewing its solution history. Poka enables organizations to standardize operating procedures as well as train employees using training guides which include pictures, videos, and informative text files. All employee training progress can be tracked via a visual dashboard. Poka's skills matrix helps users manage their team at a glance with real time status updates to ensure entire coverage of required skills. All informational content can be validated by various approval groups such as health and safety, production, quality, and engineering to stay compliant.

A perfect match with our needs

Communication is way more efficient, technical and precise.

Communication is way more efficient, technical and precise.

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.

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

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.

Poka was a good program that can help new people utilize and learn procedures. Any more in depth guidelines and customization should be upgraded.

Pros

I like that it is a quick software application that can be used to access workplace procedures very quickly for anyone who needs it.

Cons

The branching of different procedure and setup was a bit difficult to process.

Excellent software for internal corporate communication and factory training.

Reviewed on 2018/05/23

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.

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

Reviewed on 2018/05/09

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.
