The solution allows you to unite colleagues within your company for different interests — working issues, studies, recreation, hobbies and others.
A solid team is a reliable basis for the success of any company! Communication is the direct way to achieve this goal. How much easier and more pleasant it will be to communicate with your colleagues, knowing that besides working issues they are also united by the love to surfing, cats or fishing! That’s for we created the "Companions” solution — to find like-minded people inside the company. Each employee fills his hobbies in his personal cabinet, and then anyone can join this group. Companions, unite!
