Workplace Okta

We offer a bundle that combines licenses for both Workplace and Okta, and includes assistance with the implementation of Okta's identity management solution for Workplace. The solution minimizes administrative effort, streamlines the login process and adds an extra layer of security.

Why should you integrate Workplace with an identity management solution?

Implementing Workplace without connecting the tool to the company's existing IT infrastructure forces you to manually administrate users and provide dedicated user support. This increases the load on the IT department. Like with any manually handled process, the risk of human error also increases. For example, users may have access to the tool that should not have it.

If you do not connect the tool to the company's existing login solution, it can create frustration and give a bad user experience which in turn affect the user adoption negatively.

When implementing IT tools, the IT department must take a position on identity management. The same also applies to the acquisition of Workplace. Read more about what that actually means here.

The Workplace Okta bundle is a complete solution for your company

Workplace from Facebook is the leading enterprise collaboration and communication tool. Okta is the leading cloud-based solution for identity and access management.

Our bundle combines licenses for both Workplace and Okta, and we help you with the implementation of the identity management solution for Workplace. The solution minimizes administrative effort, streamlines the login process and adds an extra layer of security.

Cloudworks is partner with both Facebook and Okta, and our close collaboration ensures you priority. The bundle is a complete solution, and you only need to relate to us as your implementation partner.

Functions and benefits:

With the identity solution Okta in place, all the companies in Data Respons can collaborate on Workplace from Facebook

Data Respons Group wanted the entire organization to use Workplace from Facebook after their positive experience with the tool in Norway.

With twelve different companies sharing one Workplace instance and many different solutions for user administration, it was necessary to facilitate a simple and secure login, as well as a powerful solution for identity management.

The identity management solution Okta was chosen for Data Respons, and you can read more about it here.

With a decentralized company structure, it is important for us to have a common communication platform that works across all possible IT systems.

At the same time, we have unavoidable requirements for both high security and a low user threshold. In this context, Workplace is a good and usable platform, but it still requires expertise from an environment like Cloudworks to make everything work seamlessly and be as secure as the bank.

Sebastian Eidem, Chief Communication Officer in Data Respons Group

The competence increased and the engagement flourished after implementing Workplace from Facebook

After Elkjøp Nordic got Workplace in place for its 13,000 employees, competence increased, the flow of information became faster and the engagement flourished. Everyone can participate in the company's internal digital dialogue, and the management can easily reach out to everyone.

Frontline employees feel connected to the company with Workplace

By combining Workplace from Facebook with Okta's identity and access solution, frontline employees in your company will also have a voice, be able to stay up to date, and feel part of the culture also digitally.

High turnover

Frontline employees work directly with customers and the general public, and usually do not have their own company computer. Therefore, they often do not have access to the company's collaboration tools. This may contribute to this group of employees feeling less connected to the company, and may be one of the reasons for high turnover in such positions.

Lack of identity structure

Companies often struggle to include this group of employees because they lack the identity infrastructure required to effectively manage access for them at an affordable price.

Did you know that the price for frontline employees are lower than for other employees?

The monthly fee for frontline employees is significantly lower than for other employees. Together with Okta, administration and access are also easy, time and cost saving.

This price example underneath is based on 80% frontline employees. Fees are billed based on the actual number. We follow the definition of frontline employees as described by Workplace. You can read more about it here.
