Valo welcomes Microsoft Viva, the new employee experience platform launched by Microsoft this week. Aligned with Microsoft, Valo is on a mission to provide the best digital workday experiences. So, we fully embrace any new tool that helps employees thrive at work.
Microsoft Viva is the first employee experience platform to bring tools for employee engagement, learning, wellbeing and knowledge discovery, directly into the flow of people’s work. Powered by Microsoft 365, it includes all the tools that come with Microsoft 365, as well as integrations with Microsoft Teams and Yammer.
It incorporates standard features such as access to internal communications built on integrations with SharePoint, Yammer and other Microsoft tools.
In addition, Viva offers access to team analytics and an integration with LinkedIn Learning and other training content providers (including the likes of SAP SuccessFactors), as well as Viva Topics for knowledge sharing within a company.
Valo’s products fit perfectly with Microsoft Viva
Valo’s digital workplace tools fit perfectly with the new addition to the Microsoft 365 family. As Valo’s products are built directly on top of Microsoft 365, and natively integrate inside Microsoft Teams, they complement rather than compete with Viva.
Valo is committed to leveraging the upcoming Microsoft Viva functionalities in all our products. Valo Intranet and Valo Connect beautifully align with Microsoft Viva. Our customers will benefit directly from the upcoming technical capabilities.
Microsoft Viva is also a host for third party products. This means Valo’s digital workplace tools will easily integrate into the new employee experience platform.
For example, our recently launched external management and collaboration tool Valo Entrance will enable Microsoft Viva customers to incorporate external users safely and securely – a function currently unavailable in the Microsoft 365 ecosystem today.
In particular Valo Ideas, already running natively on Microsoft Teams, will extend Viva’s vision even further.
We see Valo Ideas as the 5th experience within Microsoft Viva. With Microsoft Viva and Valo Ideas we see a vision where users would be able to collaborate, learn and innovate right in Microsoft Teams which Satya Nadella referred to as the “Organising Layer” for digital work.
Valo continues to be committed to aligning all our products with the Microsoft Roadmap. Going forward, as more details about Microsoft Viva are released, we look forward to swiftly capitalizing on Microsoft Viva’s roadmap and extending it to bring more value to all the Valo products.
