Maybe you’ve already reached the point where you communicate and collaborate via Confluence, Linchpin intranet, Jira, as well as with Hangouts Chat and other Google G Suite tools. However, you know all too well, there’s always that one person that hits “reply to all.” Maybe someone received a customer email, has attached their comments/questions, and has now forwarded it to 3 or 4 people? At first glance, it doesn’t seem that dramatic, right? Over time, however, it can snowball into a chaotic series of replies, forwards, and quoted emails.
As a provider of Linchpin intranet suite, we are always excited to see how Linchpin is used in practice. We pay special attention to what specific requirements a solution should meet and how our customers implement such projects. Our colleagues at Beecom in Switzerland carried out such a project. They collaborated with cyber security specialists InfoGuard, using Linchpin as the intranet communication platform connecting locations in Bern and Zug.

The Corona crisis is omnipresent right now, and we are also experiencing it first-hand, too. Luckily, we have the experience and resources to continue our collaborations remotely with useful and productive replacements for in-person meetings (temporarily or perhaps permanently). There’s no need for our collaboration and coordination to suffer – quite the opposite!
Last Thursday, March 19, 2020, we here at //SEIBERT/MEDIA were planning on holding our Atlassian Enterprise Club Day an in-person event in Wiesbaden, but the unexpected coronavirus pandemic has thrown us a curveball that we needed to adjust to. Rather than canceling the event, we converted it to a remote event. We live-streamed the event via our YouTube channel. After our live AEC show, several participants asked us about the technology that we used. We wanted to give everyone a more detailed look behind the scenes here in this article.
NGK Spark Plugs is one of the world’s leading automotive suppliers. While the staff at the headquarters in Japan had already experienced Google G Suite, the EMEA region was working with a mail server that was becoming increasingly outdated. //SEIBERT/MEDIA is a German Google partner, and so we supported the introduction of G Suite in NGK Spark Plugs’ EMEA offices.
Our aim was to get involved in the general conversation about sustainability, to signal our commitment to sustainability so that it’s recognized internally, and to establish regional contacts in order to learn and exchange ideas together. We here in the organizational team were very happy to receive the positive feedback and animated discussions that came from the event. Our plan is to hold two more Meetups this year.
