What are Apps?

Our apps are built using our flexible toolkit, which lets you affordably create solutions to all those underserved business processes that are uniquely your own. Solve the first one, and users almost always identify the next process that’s holding them back. As you can see from these real customer examples, the possibilities are boundless…

Inventory Manager

Use case: Customer needs to track software inventory they’ve deployed across their extended enterprise. Management needs multiple views of data, but some data is sensitive, so everyone can't see everything. They initially used Sharepoint pages to share spreadsheets built from data dynamically exported from operational systems, but that quickly hit the wall from data maintainability, scalability and security challenges.

Yakabox Benefits: Automated data collection/integration, automated report generation, secure social content environment (links to related data, commenting, in-context messaging and more), object-level access control.

Help Desk

Use case: Customer needs to track customer requests related to software issues, and leverage this to driving training and user adoption plans across the enterprise. Management needs metrics to track productivity, capacity and outcomes. The existing process was informal, ad-hoc, and largely contained in email chains; gathering accurate metrics was nearly impossible - and trouble ticket systems lacked the security required for the customer’s mission.

Yakabox Benefits: Structured workflow process provides real-team status; dynamic management reporting; full content search and discovery; “see-alsos” to build knowledge chains.

Agile Development Backlog

Use case: Software development shop needs to track all activity from initial feature request to final acceptance testing and delivery. They tried leading propriety “agile software” process tools, but couldn’t make them fit the real-world challenges of multiple, concurrent, inter-dependent projects in the unique context of federal contracting requirements.

Yakabox Benefits: secure social collaboration provides quick issue resolution, with full audit trail; provides better visibility for customers and customer support team with customized reports on features or project roadblocks; eliminates redundant feature requests (or bug reports); full content search provides invaluable knowledge repository for troubleshooting, requirements refinement; enables managers to easily plan and oversee development sprints.

Action Tracker

Use case: Organization receives and generates formal actions requiring a response from subordinate groups. The previous process was a conglomeration of email chains, spreadsheets, and rigid proprietary applications.

Yakabox Benefits: Starting from a user-centered design approach, Yakabod helps users define an intuitive user experience around a repeatable, trackable, flexible process for both inter- and intra-departmental tasks. Customized workflows allow individual workgroups to tailor specifics to their unique needs. Power-user configurable dashboards help identify bottlenecks and eliminate roadblocks. Net result: no more dropped balls or missed deadlines.

Ask the Expert

Use case: Customer needs to identify technical, administrative, or policy experts and connect them with information seekers to better leverage corporate knowledge across the enterprise. The existing process is an ad-hoc, frustrating, and often fruitless search across assorted intranets and repositories; users get lost looking for answers and simply give up.

Yakabox Benefits: Cast as a new initiative to modernize the workplace, allowing users to easily find topical experts or knowledge sources within the enterprise while sharing various levels of sensitive information with only those authorized to view it. By providing fast answers to important problems, the app breaks down information silos, eliminates redundancies, and nurtures a collaborative culture across organizational boundaries.

Employee Travel Tracker

Use case: Organization sends people all over the world and needs to know who’s where and when - but many locations are sensitive or have unique pre-travel preparation logistics and requirements. The previous process runs in endless email chains and spreadsheets, but management has no reliable, unified view. Information security challenges further complicate and fragment the process.

Yakabox Benefits: Configurable workflows enforce a unified process for milt-tiered approvals, budgeting, and reporting while ensuring travelers are fully prepared prior to departure. Dashboards provide various levels of management accurate, relevant, unified views including real-time location of all staff. Integrates with other enterprise systems to synchronize shared data.

Security

Yakabox is a knowledge-sharing engine at its best. The program’s certified intelligence agency-grade operating system and application security mean your information is safe and secure. Yakabox also features role-based access and privileges, detailed audit trails, limited data access/visibility to users, and much more.
