A well-implemented digital work environment provides employees with tools for communication, finding information, managing tasks, collaborating and engaging with others internally. An intranet is a key tool for internal communication and it also enables work management, knowledge sharing and employee engagement.

The key to a functional digital work environment is good planning. Using the same technologies, it is possible to build very different intranets and digital work environments, emphasizing the need for comprehensive understanding and the creation of a sound content concept in the planning process. The roles and usage patterns between tools must also be clarified.

At North Patrol, the starting point for the planning process is always the needs of employees and the goals and practices of the organization. We assist organizations in providing the best possible employee experience through a well-designed digital work environment – and ultimately finding the right partner to implement the solution.

The most popular platforms for collaborating in Finland: Miro, Mural, Trello and Howspace

69 weeks ago

There is a wide selection of digital tools available for sharing ideas and know-how, planning together, or discussing and reviewing plans together. Many of them are reasonably priced or even free. These so-called collaboration platforms can be used to support the work of different teams, the sharing of learning and expertise, the facilitation of remote meetings, or they can replace the use of traditional flipcharts and notepads with new digital working methods. 

In our recent Digital work environment 2022 report collaboration platforms  Miro, Mural, Trello, and Howspace showed to be the most popular in Finland.

How we differ from our competitors?

  • We specialize in digital service design

    We specialize in high-quality design and requirements specification of digital services. Our mission is to help customers succeed in their software project by creating the best possible foundation for implementation – whether it is an agile implementation done inhouse, a project done with a partner, or a publicly tendered project.

  • We don't sell coding or licenses

    Many software companies recommend software solutions that they also implement themselves. We don’t do that. We don’t do software implementation projects or have partnerships with technology providers. Our perspective on the software market is broad, as it should be for our customers. Our goal is always to find the best possible software solution for our customer, whether it’s a custom-built solution, a SaaS service, an open-source platform, or a combination of these.

  • We are realistic and forward-thinking

    We design digital service concepts, implementation methods and architectures that are sustainable and can be further developed. We place great importance on the feasibility of software solutions, the availability of good partners and the predictability of costs.
