Today we are introducing the Wegweiser association from Germany which uses ONLYOFFICE Docs integrated into Nextcloud to organize a private collaborative workspace for all its employees. Ramona Lexow, a commercial manager at Wegweiser, talks about her team’s experience.
Wegweiser is an association that integrates people with mental and physical disabilities into society. For this purpose, 35 Wegweiser employees carry out various initiatives such as day care centers, outpatient care, integration specialist service and the transition from school to work program.
The main principle of the association sounds as: “We have set ourselves the task, respectfully and in dignity, to enable people who entrust themselves to us to lead a self-determined life and participate in social activities.”
Wegweiser wasn’t satisfied with the data protection level of the previously used SharePoint and no longer wanted to deal with it. So, they set up its own cloud with Nextcloud and integrated ONLYOFFICE to ensure maximum security for their data.
Most needed features
Since the employees don’t use any special software for accounting, ONLYOFFICE primarily serves documentation purposes.
The Wegweiser stuff finds the following ONLYOFFICE features most useful:
- Documentation of daily work;
- Accounting and controlling;
- Editing documents by several users simultaneously;
- Compatibility with MS Office formats.
Ramona Lexow would definitely recommend ONLYOFFICE in combination with Nextcloud to other users and organizations:
For us, this is the perfect solution!
