Let's be honest. When we first drove up to Abird, literally at the quay in the Rotterdam Botlek, with a refinery on the left and an oil rig docked across the street, we thought: will a social intranet really work here?
How can you enable almost 10,000 members of 530 organizations and universities from 140 countries to work together and share knowledge? Plek unites the International Water Association's water experts on an online community platform, so they can share, discover, learn and reflect.
Plek works well for staffing agencies. Makes sense, because you need to engage and inform all the people working at different clients' offices. Plek is used by for example IT people, financial and HR professionals, and middle management.
The Boerhaave Medical Centre in Amsterdam makes beautiful people even prettier. It's not surprising that the plastic surgeons of Boerhaave chose the most beautifully designed social intranet they could find!
