Finding expertise

Sharing information effectively. Employees quickly find colleagues who can help them.

Finding the right person to talk to within an organisation is often challenging and time consuming. Knowing who to talk to can be the key to getting vital information needed to complete work.

Finding documents

Employees find information they can build on instead of reworking existing work.

When employees have access to the information they need they can make better informed decisions. Not having access leads to unnecessary reworking of existing work, lower efficiency & unhappy employees.

FAQ

How is Lateral installed?

Short answer: Lateral can either be installed on your servers or hosted on our servers.

Long answer: We offer both a hosted solution and an on-premise / private cloud installation. If you opt to have Lateral installed on your servers, the entire solution can securely sit behind your firewall and no data needs to leave your servers. We guide you through the installation process and help you integrate Lateral into the software solutions you use. If you go for the hosted solution your servers securely share data with our API which sits on our servers. Contact us to get started.

How much does Lateral cost?

Short answer: We offer tiered pricing for our hosted solution and custom pricing for on premise installations.

Long answer: Our hosted solution comes with tier pricing to accommodate different levels of usage by companies of different sizes. For our on-premise / private cloud installations we provide custom pricing, which is structured in two phases. First we recommend a paid 3-6 month test-phase. During this phase we guide you through the installation process and ensure that you get the most value out of Lateral. The second phase starts when the solution goes into production. For this phase there is a monthly license fee with an agreed payment schedule based on your companies requirements. Both hosted and on-premise solutions come with comprehensive support from the Lateral team. Contact us to discuss the right setup for your company.

How are permissions structures handled?

Short answer: Existing permission structures are adapted to.

Long answer: Lateral adapts to existing permissions structures within the software solutions you use to ensure that an employee only sees relevant content they have access to. Additionally, a huge benefit of Lateral is that it can let the employee know who the expert on a topic is without needing to share documents. This means that in cases where work cannot be shared, for example when it contains sensitive client data, Lateral can still help employees find expertise.

Which languages does Lateral support?

Short answer: We can train new languages in under a week. Contact us. Currently it already works for English, German and Indonesian.

Long answer: We currently have trained language models for English, German and Indonesian. These work from the get go and are constantly updated. This means that once installed, recommendations can be made straight away, rather than us having to train again on your company's documents. Based on demand we are able to train new languages in under a week. Contact us to request support for another language.

Which software solutions does Lateral work with?

Short answer: As Lateral is an API, it can integrate into any software solution.

Long answer: Lateral is compatible with all the software solutions you use internally. Whether you use Microsoft Word, Sharepoint or your own in-house software, Lateral is packaged as an API that can be integrated. For some solutions like Confluence we have out-of-the-box integrations, for others we can assist in or undertake the integration.

“Happy to answer any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.”
