User Studio (R&D) – Pins

Link sharing & topic monitoring for teams

In short

We decided to create our own topic monitoring tool, organised, permanent, visual and thematic: the Pins tool, which we now have the pleasure of sharing with our clients and privileged partners.

  • 1 Chrome extension
  • 80+ teams (and counting)

Challenges

Monitoring, whether purely visual or simply thematic, is essential for building a common culture within a team. This is also an approach that we recommend at the start of any project: to bring teams together around shared visions, to create benchmarks based on a common reference system. It is from this premise that Pins was born.

Our involvment

We therefore made a major effort of introspection, internal user research, testing and successive interface iterations in order to arrive at a tool that simplifies the work of everyone at User Studio. Whether on the desktop with a complete dashboard, or on the mobile with a tool reduced to the essentials of the declarations that you may have to make while at your workstation or elsewhere. Specifically, Pins makes pins immediately available, saveable and findable for every member of the same team, publishing them in parallel to the team's Slack workspace if it is linked. And much more than that, of course.
