Atlas 2.0 ignites knowledge for the many by connecting Microsoft 365 users to knowledge

LONDON: ClearPeople is incredibly excited to be launching Atlas 2.0 the week leading up to Microsoft’s Ignite conference. Atlas 2.0 contains numerous new features including support for Teams as a Platform and further accessibility enhancements and features that empower users, such as:

  • Additional templates for communication and knowledge management made available in SharePoint Modern
  • The “In Focus” tool that dynamically displays tailored content and brings relevant content in focus for the user
  • Atlas Add It - our smart tool for enabling knowledge sharing is available as a Microsoft Teams App
  • An extended, powerful information architecture for document management within Microsoft Teams
  • Full accessibility support: high contrast themes, keyboard navigation, support for Read Out Loud tools and more

Atlas is built for everyone and enables the many to share, contribute, find and discover knowledge whether they are behind a desk, working from home or a first line worker in a hospital or on a construction site. Our purpose – and our ambition for Atlas – is to make everyone successful in their work, irrespective of their ability or technical dexterity.

“Driven by our passion for inclusivity, accessibility is key to our Atlas proposition because we believe that companies should not only strive to create an accessible workplace but also an accessible digital workspace” says Katya Linossi, Co-Founder and CEO of ClearPeople.

In line with our Atlas vision, Atlas 2.0 is not only more accessible, but it was important to us that our team has a shared understanding of accessibility. Therefore, our team from finance to developers completed the accessibility fundamentals course on Microsoft’s Learn platform.

Most knowledge management systems are designed for the few. Those who know how can contribute and the systems are built with only narrow information worker scenarios in mind.

Atlas promotes new ways of working by bringing people and knowledge together. Atlas is forging its own category as a knowledge productivity platform that is designed to engage and empower teams, wherever they may be. Atlas connects people to knowledge.

The knowledge management capabilities of Atlas  drive intuitive contribution and the powerful search-based capabilities weave together the accelerating growth of information repositories. 

Gabriel Karawani, Co-Founder explains the importance of the latest Atlas 2.0 release: “Our ambition has always been to lead the way when it comes to the digital workspace experience in the Microsoft cloud. With Atlas 2.0 our customers have a leading platform for knowledge productivity, collaboration and communication which leverages their investments in Microsoft 365 and Azure. For the larger enterprises, Atlas 2.0 is also important as it provides a fantastic foundation for Project Cortex which is Microsoft’s massive investment into AI for knowledge management. As a launch partner for Project Cortex, we ensure that our Atlas customers can continuously take advantage of new features that benefit their end-users.”

Atlas is available in Microsoft AppSource. Built on and for Microsoft 365, and leveraging Teams as a platform, SharePoint, Yammer and tapping into the advanced cloud and AI capabilities in the Microsoft Azure stack, such as Microsoft Graph, Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services, Language Understanding Intelligent Service (LUIS) and Bot services.

About ClearPeople: ClearPeople provides software and services for the modern digital workplace. Our unique history has enabled us to develop Atlas, the people-first digital workspace solution that is tightly integrated with Office 365.

Atlas brings knowledge, communication, collaboration and connectivity together beautifully, to engage, empower your team and accelerate the adoption of new processes, wherever they may be. It unlocks the hidden knowledge in your organisation and brings people together, especially when remote working.
