Build better employee experiences with us | Akumina Community

Love the way you work. Love the way you build.

Welcome to the Akumina Community

Dave Pierce is the learning and community manager for Akumina.

The Akumina Community is a place to hone your expertise to create great employee experiences

Today is Day 1 of the Akumina Community site, but I feel like I’ve been talking about a site like this for a long time.

I wholeheartedly believe in this crazy idea that people who build digital experiences should have a place of their own to crowd source best practices, see each other’s work, and have a direct line to someone like me at their software company of choice.

Dave Pierce is Akumina’s learning and community manager (and loves muffins and Northeastern hockey).

And at Akumina, I want to put a friendly face (and oddball personality) to a company whose sole purpose is to make it easier for people to do their jobs.

To that end, this community site features:

  • A comprehensive knowledge base organized by type and topic to save you time.
  • Forums to converse with each other and Akumina professionals.
  • Blog posts putting the spotlight on your work and devoted to the things you care about.
  • Video tutorials and overviews for products and features.
  • Access to support.
  • A zillion ways to ask me a question.

So, why did we build this? Two huge reasons:

  1. Your ideas inspire us to provide better solutions.
  2. Akumina’s EXP shouldn’t be hard to use … for anyone.

When I came here in February, I jumped out of the open-source waters of Acquia and straight into the deep end of this community. I left a digital experience software company for an employee experience company. I don’t see much of any differences in what we do. And I see much of same ethos of open source and democratizing innovation sewn into the fabric of this community site.

Now, we aren’t going to share our original recipe or secret sauce, but we’ll certainly fry up some food within public view. That’s OK because we stand behind our product.

And we stand behind our users. This is your site. You cannot over-use it.
