The Vibe.fyi Story
The Vibe.fyi Story
We transform the way organisations inspire their workforce through visual communications. We do this by delivering vibrant, snackable, timely information in ways that are proven to improve reach and retention.
Vibe.fyi positions digital content that employees see with frequency on every screen in their workplace, from digital screens in common areas, desktop screensavers, web browsers, through to mobile devices.
Far too many organisations, to this day, rely on static, text-heavy methods of internal communications like emails, newsletters and static posters to relay business-critical information. This risks increasing employee disengagement and that costs companies: from staff retention, to business productivity through to customer experience!
Corporate culture and wellbeing initiatives
Health and safety tips
Reinforce learning and development messages
Company culture is created every day by what employees see, hear and do. We believe organisations have the power to influence those beliefs and behaviours, through effective communications.
Our passion is to enable companies to communicate more effectively, more often and with less effort.
Delivering information with the spaced repetition needed to ensure employees absorb messages that drive long term change and improve behaviour. We call it the “Vibe Effect”.
We’ve helped some of the biggest brands in New Zealand transform the way they communicate: The Warehouse Group, Zespri, Foodstuffs, Watercare, Ryman Healthcare, DHL and others. You can improve your internal communications with our fully-managed, automated communication platform that doesn’t just push content but also builds connections and drives productivity.
The world’s best businesses are also world-class communicators.
Over the past two decades, we’ve worked with some of the world’s most well-known brands on their internal communication strategy. Although each of these has a unique set of challenges, they’ve all got one thing in common: they’re making their hardware work harder to support their internal communication strategy.
At Vibe.fyi, we’re passionate about helping businesses leverage every possible screen to support great communication.
We've removed the barriers so that doing that is super simple and effective. It makes sense to communicate in the way people learn; and it’s a game changer for getting better cut-through.
We began as Labyrinth Solutions, at the peak of the dot.com era, back in 2001. We launched with a mission to
help businesses stay at the forefront of online technology, by designing digital strategies to communicate with customers.
Throughout the early 2000’s, we grew while scanning the horizon, looking for new ways to deliver content. We created a CMS software product called Contegro, offering centralised management of content across multiple channels.
In 2013 we pivoted toward digital signage and streaming visual-only content. We innovated a new solution called CafeMedia, that delivered streaming, visual-only content to cafe customers including up-to-the-minute News, Weather, Surf & Snow Reports and a range of other entertainment content.
Companies started approaching us, wanting a CafeMedia style channel for inside their businesses. They loved the engagement factor of the entertainment content and wanted to use our digital channel to reach and inform employees about day to day business operations. It worked so well, we saw the opportunity to build an internal communications platform, which became the foundation of our Vibe.fyi offering.
In July 2020, Labyrinth Solutions re-branded to Vibe.fyi.
The next exciting phase of the Vibe.fyi journey is working with Wellbeing and Business Improvement specialists to produce a range of comprehensive Microlearning / Nudge-Learning programmes, delivered in Vibe’s signature style: visual, lively and snackable format and presented with the frequency required to drive positive, productive behaviours and optimise workplace performance.
I would say using Vibe.fyi has been 100% effective!
Employees stop and look at the screens, our deskless workforce say they feel more informed as they saw something before their team leader told them
Vibe.fyi has transformed comms for our non-wired staff
The comm's tools we used for our non-wired employees weren’t up to the same level as those for wired. Vibe provides a way of supporting the key messages around safety, wellbeing, operational updates, employee recognition etc.
We’ve experienced a 20% reduction in volume of emails
...With an obviously more positive, interactive, connected and engaged workforce, who appear a lot happier!
Vibe has been a hit from the beginning! Better collaboration, visibility, sharing and accountability
We’ve also experienced a 60% increase in awareness of upcoming events in the business calendar and were able to celebrate at least five times more staff achievements than we could have using email.
Vibe.fyi has helped save time - increasing team efficiency and happiness!
Vibe.fyi has had a positive impact on team meetings – the duration of meetings has reduced by approximately 30% because of not needing to cover the tracking of core services.
The results have surpassed our own expectations
Around 90% of our key stakeholders have wanted to know how we implemented such a stunning platform and the CEO has been raving about it.
One of the most powerful solutions there is!
I haven’t seen a solution this powerful before! Our people absolutely love it and it’s helped us transform how we communicate
The Vibe team have been great to work with...
...super proactive, super helpful. Infact we haven't needed them too much because it's really easy to use and very simple and effective.
One of our favourite features is the ability to show social media feeds...
...and things like Yammer on our screens so our people can keep their finger on the pulse of what's happening and they don't have to be stuck behind their desks all day.
It saves time...
...it's a very modern solution and it helps engage and inspire our people.
If we took it away now, there would be a riot!
Being able to set all the screens up differently is fantastic. It provides a real 'feel-good' factor for residents.
It has helped raise awareness around services on offer
The screens have not only been a great visual aid for residents, they have also been an excellent marketing and sales tool
Vibe.fyi has helped the team improve resident engagement
They are hugely popular with residents who don’t have to leave the comfort of their own room to access up to minute information about what’s going on in the village.
The flexibility of the Vibe.fyi solution impressed our project team
Some screens show events; others display news, weather and quizzes; and others a ‘personal touch’, with birthdays and anniversaries.
The Vibe system is super easy to use, requiring minimal input.
It’s easy. I’m not an IT person at all. I think (the screens) are fabulous. They have been a great tool for improving the accuracy and recency of information, removing a lot of frustration around the village.
Vibe.fyi ticked all the boxes
When choosing a product, Vibe was head and shoulder above the rest, because it offered "The best and simplest application"
Our people love the wellbeing program content!
Our people are impressed that we are providing them with communication that is timely and will help improve their safety, health and wellbeing.
Vibe helps us visualise data
We have found Vibe very effective for some of the dashboard content we are promoting. Overall, it’s a great system and I would recommend it.
Vibe has worked during lockdowns; and beyond
We are an essential service, so we needed Vibe in all Distribution Centres during the first COVID-19 lockdown to provide H&S (COVID-19) information. It’s been the solution we needed to reach all of our staff in a timely manner, and we will continue to use the service to its full potential.
Vibe helps us drive engagement
It has enabled us to display life-saving rules, incentive tracking and information that hasn’t been available to non- wired staff previously. Definitely a very positive tool!
Vibe gets cut-through
Vibe is now officially part of our channel mix and is becoming one of our main channels of communication (and has the potential to become the main channel).
Vibe offer great technical support
Site leads have appreciated the support offered by Vibe.
We're using Vibe for EVERYTHING
We started with COVID messages, but by mid-Nov we were communicating other business events on site; Facebook groups; café menus; surveys (with a QR code); internal videos; welcoming our summer interns; Christmas messaging from our CEO + more!
Seeing the Mana Moana Program on my computer screen saver!
When I first saw the Program showing Tahupotiki Wiremu Ratana, I happened to have a family member (and customer) that saw it aswell, and we wanted to say "thank you'. We are from Ratana Paa, so it is a very big deal for us to see this on a company screen saver which goes a very long way towards normalising it as part NZ history.
People love Vibe
VIBE has been 100% effective! Employees stop and look at the screens; our deskless workforce say they feel more informed.
