Connecting a global network to drive digital innovation
Softvision is the company responsible for improving the digital maturity of some of the world's leading brands. By providing companies with cutting-edge digital strategy, design and engineering solutions, Softvision enables them to better connect with increasingly tech-savvy consumers.
With 23 studios in 10 different countries, Softvision has a unique, community-based organisational structure. Staff are grouped together in skill-based teams called Guilds, and each Guild is made up of top talent who share the same area of expertise, such as developers, UX designers or engineers. Workplace has built strong bonds between Softvision's global Guild network, and brought about greater innovation and participation in social responsibility activities.

How Workplace helped
Centralising internal communications and assets
Live video is now used for all company-wide meetings, emails have been converted to Workplace Chat which has reduced email traffic by 20% and the translation tool allows staff in 10 different countries to speak the same language.
Greater social responsibility
Since creating social responsibility groups on Workplace and sharing photos of volunteering activities, Softvision has noticed a significant increase in the number of people getting involved. From volunteering for summer camp at underprivileged schools in India to donating books and supplies to local schools, Workplace has helped people become much more connected to their local communities, as well as to each other.
Better company-wide innovation
First, they created a group for the project, unveiling it by live streaming a video announcement. Over 110 ideas poured into the group from all Guilds, and 13 of the strongest ones were shortlisted. Next, these ideas were pitched to the executive team and lead sales reps via live video. The top three ideas that combined innovation, product insight and business change were chosen, and are now in the process of being brought to life.

"Easily one of the best decisions we've made as a company is to adopt Workplace by Facebook. It has quickly become our 'go-to' platform for collaboration as well as internal communications. As we have 2,500 employees in 23 offices across 10 countries, it's often hard to maintain a consistent culture. I can use Workplace to hold live 'all staff' meetings, or communicate with a particular client/development group, or even congratulate an employee on a personal milestone. It has helped our corporate culture and brought the company closer together."
