The Hackathon program includes ten weeks of online support during which participants benefit from the advice of Microsoft's Tech, Business and Marketing coaches.

This year, Mozzaik365 is pleased to be among the winners of the Teams Apps Challenge thanks to its new application MODA, whose story is...

BeMyApp Challenge

A look back at the process of creating MODA

MODA was born from the close collaboration between Mozzaik365's product managers, designers and partnership team.

The design of this digital product started with the observation and analysis of the current needs of Microsoft Teams users.

To detect these expectations, our teams conducted interviews with customers, monitored their new uses and needs, and researched new business practices.

The development phase of theMODA application followed an iterative process.

Once the concept was decided, it was regularly pitched to our partners, giving birth to successive versions, constantly improved.

The stages of the BeMyApp contest punctuated this iterative process and allowed Mozzaik365's teams to challenge the project.

The Teams Apps Challenge has several milestones, including an acceleration phase and a final sprint (the "Booster Hack"), at the end of which MODA was awarded.

The MODA application convinced the jury of the Teams Apps Challenge and won the BeMyApp competition alongside two other projects: CleverConnect and Coach for Eyes.

We are very pleased with this recognition.

It demonstrates that the young Mozzaik365 team has solid skills and knows how to mobilize them for ambitious new projects.

At this point, you're probably dying to learn more about MODA.

Here's what you need to know:

MODA is an application that makes it easy to create custom Dashboards in Microsoft Teams.

What makes MODA different is the simplicity of the settings and the level of customization it offers.

Does this arouse your curiosity?

Let's go into a little more detail:

1. Improve your internal communication with MODA

Internal communication is a major challenge for a company. It allows to federate andengage the teams.

However, according to an INside-OpinionWay survey, one employee out of three declares that they are not well informed, and one out of five says that they lack the information necessary for their work.

The MODA application overcomes this problem.

Our latest product allows you to create a Dashboard dedicated to internal communication directly in Teams.

Thanks to this customized dashboard, you can prioritize information, distribute it specifically to a target audience or notify your collaborators of the publication of an essential news item.

This way, your employees have the data they need, without being overwhelmed by a mass of information.

4. Communicate better with field teams thanks to MODA

Whether they work on site or on the road, field employees rarely have a computer that allows them to receive company communications properly.

The consequence? According to a study conducted by Yoobic, nearly one in two field teams feels disconnected from their organization.

MODA provides a concrete answer to this problem and facilitates communication with field employees.

The application allows you to create a complete and simpleDashboard, integrated into the Teams mobile application.

Thanks to this interface, those who are also called the Front Line Workerscan follow the company news, consult their to-do list or watch the organization'ssocial networks directly from their Smartphone.

In this way, field employees are better integrated and more committed.

5. Make your projects run smoothly with MODA

As you know, a good flow of information is necessary for the smooth running of a project.

However, the interactions between the members of a project team are not always smooth.

There are many obstacles to communication : email loops in which information gets lost, forgotten attachments, files or links shared with only part of the team, etc.

MODA provides an effective solution to these difficulties.

Our new application allows you to create customizable dashboards in each of your Teams.

This way, each team has instant access to the information and links that are important to their project (task list, news feed, KPIs, documents, etc.).

The ideal way to facilitate collaboration and achieve your goals more easily.
