Connecting Teams Through Innovation at Doka

In 2017 Doka won CBRE’s prestigious “Office of the year” award in for their Innovation Labs thanks to Hoylu’s Software platform.

Doka has a widely dispersed workforce currently working against rapid growth in their industry. Market and job site demands require rigorous process, which is made difficult through time demands and traditional technology. The industry has been slow to adopt new technologies, although Doka has been a market leader in pursuing smart solutions to traditional problems.

Doka uses the Hoylu Software Suite on a projected wall in their Innovation Lab, particularly focused on R&D, Product development, Innovation and Marketing workshops. A typical session starts with brainstorming, using the wall and paper together to get the whole team involved. This is followed by more structured work, doing mind mapping or using the business model or innovation canvas for Hoylu Sketch.Projects are monitored and managed in a central location, giving better insight and visibility to team leads, management and clients.

Doka’s rooms are reserved for structured innovation sessions only. This is because Hoylu enabled rooms are booked an unprecedented 90% of the time, and have resulted in a clear difference in how they work with innovation. Workshops are now more efficient as more people can participate, and be more active, leading to proven ROI benefits.
