In an increasingly interconnected world, the power of collaboration cannot be understated. For Platinum Edge, a company specializing in certified interactive classes that span the globe, the quest for an intuitive collaboration tool was paramount. With clients from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds, the need for a solution that could transcend barriers and streamline organization was clear.

Finding an Intuitive Collaboration Tool to Work with External Clients

Platinum Edge's classes are not just lectures; they are interactive sessions filled with discussions and activities. Each class comes with its own set of templates and unique collaborative needs. Organizing these sessions across different classes and client groups presented a considerable challenge. Among their diverse clientele, Platinum Edge faced a distinct challenge with a group of Japanese clients. The language barrier presented a unique obstacle in achieving the same level of seamless collaboration experienced by English-speaking clients. The company needed a tool that could bridge this gap effortlessly.

Platinum Edge’s Wow Moments Using ALLO

The introduction of ALLO's collaboration platform marked a turning point for Platinum Edge. The ability to invite collaborators into distinct projects and canvases tailored to each class session was transformative. For the Japanese clients, the platform's translation feature allowed them to interact in their preferred language, with the content being automatically translatable into English or Japanese, ensuring clear communication.

Erica, the operations assistant at Platinum Edge, shared her enthusiasm: "ALLO makes it easy to create and manage team collaboration. It's a game-changer for our international clients."

How Platinum Edge Uses ALLO

With various Scrum class series on offer, Platinum Edge now creates a dedicated project for each one. This organization enables them to invite specific members to relevant projects, maintaining clarity and focus. Within these projects, the use of Kanban boards and columns helps segregate classes, while different canvases under each column facilitate group discussions and activities. Each group has its canvas, fostering an environment of engaged learning and interaction.

The translation feature comes into its full utility with Japanese-speaking clients. They can contribute in Japanese, and Platinum Edge can instantly translate all the content into English, and vice versa, breaking down language barriers with a single click.
