What matters most to us
A perfect user experience
Too often, everyday life of information is grey. This can be prevented by publishing interesting content on a well designed platform. Use PIIPE to present your content in an appealing way. Make sure, that your users enjoy their reading experience. Use videos to benefit from a multimedia presentation of your content. In addition, PIIPE makes it easy to enter into an active dialogue with your readers and receive feedback.
Clear, aesthetic and explicit
PIIPE does not only provide you with a fancy design. A clear structure and a modern user interface are very important to us, so that users will immediately feel comfortable. Latest or important information are displayed on the starting page, in sections or highlighted in rubrics.
Customised Look & Feel
PIIPE provides you with your own platform and application
PIIPE is customizable. The design and layout can become attuned to your corporate identity and layout specifications. In this way, PIIPE is consistent with your whole application environment.
Either magazine, portal or social intranet: only a question of configuration
Do you want your platform to be a social intranet, a digital employee magazine or a digital customer magazine? Or should it rather be designed as a knowledge and micro learning portal? PIIPE has a modular construction and is adaptable to whichever purpose you want to focus on. PIIPE can be configured in line with your requirements.
Benefit from various content
Create your content easily, but optically appealing and attractive at the same time – PIIPE makes it possible to combine both.
Templates make your life easier
Contents that match every communicative goal
In order to obtain a good user experience, contents must be formatted according to their respective communication purpose. That is why PIIPE offers a suitable format for every objective: Short announcements or news are illustrated in another way than in-depth specialist articles, interviews, videos, events or theme dossiers. It quickly becomes clear why: instant information is of a fundamentally different nature than a profound knowledge transfer.
Varied media mix
We call them “Gemstones”: Elements, which can be integrated into the text at any position. Gemstones make your articles more interesting and interactive. Users often do not like to read long texts, they prefer well-presented and fascinating content instead. Gemstones are available in form of videos, survey, photo galleries, photo collages, cards, Wikipedia passages, info boxes, highlighted statements and many more.
Commenting, sharing, blogging, interacting.
A modern communication culture must promote social exchange. Employees and customers should have the possibility to share their opinions and to comment on contents – possibly with a prior examination and publishing by the editorial department. PIIPE makes it possible, but also goes far beyond this. Create surveys and blog-oriented rubrics, such as expert or management blogs. Include comments from social networks like Twitter. Activate a discussion channel about a topic in your social stream – analogous to Facebook and others. Not to forget, think about incorporating various social software platforms, such as MS Yammer.
Editing at its best
Authors and editors are supposed to concentrate on good contents. That is why PIIPE is designed in such a way that editors and authors do not need any particular technical skills and thus publishing content takes only a little time.
News, interviews, announcements, video articles, dossiers and many more.
PIIPE makes different article types and formats in form of templates available. Authors do not have to worry about layout questions. Within the templates, articles can be freely designed – if you wish so.
Authors determine how and with whom they communicate – even in omni channels.
The editing process defines in which rubrics or categories and with regard to which keywords, articles will be published. Authors specify, if articles will be highlighted, publication dates, and if contents will be available for all users or only for certain target groups.
Furthermore, authors have the possibility to determine if the articles to be written will be published on social media channels, such as Facebook, Twitter, XING, LinkedIn and many more, as well. To simplify social media publishing, authors can include the posting texts for their social media channels directly in the publication process.
Made for complex scenarios and multilingualism.
The content management console of PIIPE provides the editorial department with a simple overview of the created articles. Several filters show different various views of the content. You can immediately see which content has been published in which language and which translations are still needed. Preview links allow external users to give feedback before the release of an article.
Our multilingualism tool facilitates the management and the translation of content to be published in more than one language. Translations can be added by visually comparing between original language and translation.
Use content from the web.
Content Curation is a trend. The idea behind this technique: It is not necessary anymore to write it all yourself. Content from the web, such as videos, Wikipedia articles, twitter posts, can be integrated and linked or connected to your own content. PIIPE supports curation, which means the rearrangement of existing content, and thus simplifies the editorial work.
Even the editorial reference to existing web articles and the presentation as snippets including a summary and a link to the original source is embedded in PIIPE in form of an integrated tool.
Targeted information and communication
PIIPE is more than just a platform, on which you can post content. PIIPE contains intelligent processes, so that you can notify users in a custom-fit way to keep them informed. In doing so, interest, relevance and the prevention of an information overload play a significant role.
Intelligent notification system
Users can follow themes and persons that are of interest to them or subscribe to specific rubrics. They can decide on their own at which frequency they would like to be informed about the latest content, that matches their profile. In this way, users stay automatically up-to-date.
Advantage for the editorial staff: You can now publish your content without worrying about who needs to be notified for it. PIIPE is on this task.
In companies, it is possible to define required categories, which cannot be unsubscribed by the users. This configuration ensures that obligatory content is seen by every employee.
Publishing content for all or just for a few employees.
Normally, organisations deal with different target groups. Some content may be relevant for all of them, another content may be relevant only for a few or just for one target group.
Furthermore, companies oblige a special information policy, so that content has to be accessible for certain individuals in a particular order.
In PIIPE, group functionalities and related communication rules can be defined. The belonging to a group can be determined at the user’s registration – or it is visible in organisation or active directories. Concerning this matter, criteria, such as organisation belonging, role or function can be considered.
Learning with PIIPE: Knowledge transfer and Micro Learning
How do you introduce and teach a new topic to your employees – let’s say Industry 4.0. Especially topics, which change very quickly because of the technological progress, present a major challenge. In addition, it is often not possible to send all employees to a face-to-face seminar. PIIPE supports Micro Learning, which means learning on the basis of short sequences in dependence of the prior knowledge. In this way, your employees are motivated and learning becomes fun.
Interactive learning mix
Creating learning dossiers connected to tests
PIIPE allows you to structure learning dossiers, so that your employees can pass through them in dependence of their individual prior knowledge. Therefore, classify which content is obligatory and which content can be chosen optionally and assign content to different difficulty and competency levels. By integrating interactive elements, such as memory games, presentations, videos and questions of estimation, a self-regulated knowledge testing is ensured.
Quizzes and certificates
Testing the learning result – using quizzes and certificates
Interactive questions can be put together to quizzes. A combination of different question types, such as multiple and single choice, drag and drop exercises and gap texts is possible. Assign levels of knowledge after the passing of a test and provide automated and personalised certificates to your employees. Support the active competency acquisition.
Progress indicator and learning dashboard
PIIPE integrates various functions, which serve as a basis to display and control the learning process. Thanks to a learning progress bar users are able to see which contents they already completed. The individual learning dashboard gives an overview of the learning modules, the learner’s quizzes’ results, competences and other data, such as reading duration and activities.
Of course we would like to know which topics are of interest to our users, which articles they read, how often they read them and how much time it takes them to read these articles. That is why PIIPE provides you with numerous integration option of existing Analytics tools.
Evaluation possibility using standard tools – depending on customer preference
We do not need to develop everything by ourselves. In PIIPE, it is our philosophy to rely on standards, where we dispose of good standards. This applies especially for the Analytics tool. A standard tool like PIWIK or Google Analytics offers much more, than we could realize by ourselves. Following customer requests, we will develop evaluations that go beyond predefined analyses. For instance, we can not only analyse which articles or videos are opened by your users, but also if they are read or watched in whole or in part. Naturally, our analyses are totally anonymous – data protection is an extremely important matter to us.
Responsive design and App
No matter if mobile phone, tablet or desktop: PIIPE is made for mobile use. Via mobile browser or via App – both is possible.
Not to forget: PIIPE covers PRINT as well
You do not need to give up haptic reading experiences. PIIPE follows the idea “digital first”, but whereas in the past magazines were printed at first and subsequently digitalized, we turn the aspect around. Publish your digital magazine first and generate a printed magazine or thematic brochure afterwards. PIIPE offers an automatic generation of printed versions to you.
Extract articles and postings and publish them automatically in a print magazine
Imagine, you would like to publish once per quarter the most popular articles of your platform in form of a print publication. Or what would you do, if you would participate at a conference, where you would like to hand out a printed special issue including all articles of your platform concerning one special topic.
Our PIIPE2Print feature makes it possible to bundle and to publish articles in form of a special issue or volume. The layout is automatically configured in accordance with an individually generated customized template. References and links to videos of the platform can be displayed. Upon request, cover, imprint and other pages can directly be integrated. A PDF version of your print magazine will be supplied as well.
