Limitations of a busy work life

– At first, we assumed we could handle a digital signage solution internally – after all, we’re an innovative tech company, Merete says with a smile.

– However, in our fast-paced environment, we quickly found ourselves staring at blank screens, she adds, asking rhetorically:

– Who has the time for an extra project in an already hectic workday?

That’s when PinToMind came to her rescue.

Can be used by anyone!

Merete had some prior knowledge of PinToMind and and knew about our focus on user-friendliness.

– I quickly realized this was exactly what we needed, she says.

– With PinToMind, we got a comprehensive digital signage solution that was straightforward for everyone to use. It enabled a dynamic content flow that updated automatically, revitalizing our information screens in ways we hadn’t seen before.

World-success from a Norwegian fjord

Merete warmly welcomes us on a crisp spring morning in Nedre Vats. In this small village at the heart of a beautiful western fjord in Norway, the headquarters of AutoStore is located.

This is where the journey began for what has now evolved into a robust international technology company, renowned for its sought-after storage solution with global demand.

Additionally, we get the opportunity to explore the expansive demonstration hall, where a digital bulletin board catches our attention in the comfortable seating area at the entrance.

Compact, robot-controlled storage

Deeper within the hall, robots move swiftly across an intriguing test and demo facility. Below them lies a compact warehouse designed with cubes. These robots ensure that the most requested goods are easily accessible, and Merete demonstrates how they efficiently retrieve the right items at the right time.

This efficient, robot-controlled storage system is AutoStore’s flagship - and a global success! The company has experienced enormous growth, and at the time of writing it has over 900 employees in departments in 15 countries. They also have employees who work remotely from another three countries where they do not have their own department yet.

Easy intranet solution with PinToMind

– We’ve expanded significantly, and having a unified channel for information is crucial in fostering a sense of unity, says Merete.

She sees PinToMind as a simple intranet platform where it is easy to share up-to-date staff information.

– In addition, we use PinToMind as a channel for internal marketing. This has become increasingly important to us with the growth we have experienced in recent years, she emphasizes.

Collaborative content management

When she created the PinToMind-account, she promptly enlisted additional users.

– I recognized the importance of having multiple contributors to ensure the information screens are updated and optimized, she explains.

And according to Merete, new users get started in no time. She believes this is the key to why PinToMind is working so well for them.

– The beauty of PinToMind is its accessibility; you don’t need a programming degree to share content. It’s user-friendly and has breathed life into our screens, she adds enthusiastically.
