Working with an IT partner, the migration was completed smoothly and successfully. After its completion, coaching, training sessions, and ongoing support were outsourced to the local marketing agency Rasch & Partner.
Since then, around 40,000 employees worldwide had used the successful platform by the end of 2018.
The new name ONE emphasizes the social bond through the intranet and allows employees to participate in the day-to-day activities of the company in real time and with plenty of enthusiasm. As a result, the number of likes and posts has increased every day since the launch – a reflection of the platform’s success.
Deutsche Bahn AG upgraded its intranet to COYO back in 2017, and it now has approximately 160,000 users. This success is what led its subsidiary DB Schenker AG to also migrate to the platform. 30 different national intranets are now integrated into ONE, and the interaction between employees immediately picked up speed. As a result, more than 200,000 employees throughout the Deutsche Bahn Group now use the COYO platform.
The focus is on giving employees a platform to socialize in order to collect and implement changes, suggestions, and ideas. This had not existed before and demonstrates how necessary it is today. In this context, the Executive Board leads by example by uploading podcasts and posting on a regular basis to reduce the flood of emails and build a closer relationship with employees. In addition, such a platform needs to be extremely user-friendly, and COYO achieves this in the most state-of-the-art and dynamic way compared to other systems. So all in all, this is a true success story!
