Next to Plek Social intranet and Plek Community Platform, there is a special Plek for teams. Plek.teams is just as safe as Plek. It can be set decentral, is a self-service, and can be canceled monthly. At Plek.team you do not pay startup cost and you can start directly. Plus, the first month is free!
There a few differences between Plek.team and Plek. Since, this helpdesk is for the standard Plek, not all the functions discussed can be applied to Plek.team. Below we explain the differences.
Functional differences between Plek.team and Plek
There are a few differences between Plek.team and the standard Plek. At Plek.team you have:
- One admin, team member are users
The persons who create a Plek.team are automatically the admin of the platform. All team members who are added by the admin, automatically become a ‘user’. To keep it simple for the admin, there are no different rights between the users.
Thus, at Plek.team there is no ‘content manager’, ‘external user’, or ‘only read’. The admin does choose who is invited to the platform, which could be external users. Via closed or hidden groups, you can make sure that team members outside your organization do not have access to sensitive information.
- No channel, but a standard group
At every Plek.team a first standard group is created. All the team members are automatically a member of this group. Team members can, in addition, create their own (project) groups of different compositions. The standard group can be used for general updates or questions for the whole team.
A channel at Plek Social Intranet or Community Platform is in fact also a group where every user is a member of. As an organization, you often need multiple channels, for example, cooperation news or HR announcements.
- No poll for the admin, but forms for all users
At the standard Plek, the admin can start a poll via the admin panel. This is a quick way to ask input from all your colleagues at the same time. All the old polls included results, are saved in the admin panel. At Plek.team the admin-panel is a lot simpler, which is why there are no polls. However, to asks the opinion of your colleagues you can add a form to a message. This can be done by the admin and by the users.
- No customization, integration, and expansion
Plek.team expansion is limited: you can personalize your Plek.team with your own logo and color. But, the customization and integration with external systems are not available for Plek.team.
Standard Plek can be extended with, for example, a taxonomy, task modules, bookings tool, an own mobile app, or integration with Office 365 and/or Google Drive.
