Strategic alliance between The Createch Group and Poka

Launch of the first industrial social application in Canada

MONTREAL, Sept. 22, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - The Createch Group, a leader in business transformation, announced today that they are henceforth a privileged partner to Poka, the creators of the first industrial social platform.

Together, The Createch Group and Poka will be capable of deploying a technological solution that manages the challenges of training, ensures knowledge retention and fosters employee engagement. In the context of this agreement, The Createch Group thus becomes Poka's preferred integrator.

Poka revolutionizes the manufacturing industry
Poka is the first collaborative tool for production employees. It allows them to share and use best business practices, expertise and knowledge in real-time. Easily, employees create, share and update training materials instantly.

Replacing paper documents, this mobile platform breaks the silos that separate production and administrative workforces. Poka rapidly and radically increases productivity at all levels of the organization, giving employees better training and increased confidence in carrying out their work. Employees can therefore benefit, "anywhere at any time", from the expertise that builds up over the years in an organization.

Meeting between technology and knowledge
This technology also supports top level leaders in performing their role.

"It is indisputable, Poka allows The Createch Group to offer the best offer on the market with regards to the implementation of a LEAN management system", says Francis Bazinet, Senior Manager, Improving Operational Performance. "The solution was developed and successfully implemented in all of Leclerc Group's plants in North America. The arrival of Poka is good news for Quebec businesses as these have a considerable need of such an innovation to cope with the new challenges to come, "concludes Mr. Bazinet.

"The expertise and professionalism of The Createch Group is well established. The firm has been an undeniable success in the implementation of LEAN management systems with Quebec companies since 1993, "says Alexandre Leclerc, president and co-founder of Poka. "With this strategic alliance, our organization is ensured that the application will be supported by the best implementation practices," says Mr. Leclerc. And, against the back drop of the impending retirements of a large mass of workers, today's announcement is ever more positive.

About Poka
Poka is the first social industrial platform that focuses on efficient training, knowledge retention and real-time information exchange within the manufacturing world. The organization's mission is to provide companies with the ability to use and share best business practices, thoughts and knowledge, anywhere at any time.
