The Comatek Company

What we do

Our company sells software tailored for organisations that need to consider the human aspect of their expansion.

To do this, our SaaS, encoded by 256-bit keys, collects directly from the individuals concerned their feelings for specific themes such as stress, corporate image, perceived value etc.

Data security is applied by using data centers and by choosing secure development environments with Linux and servers.

Our products have simple, efficient and rapid interfaces with ergonomic, fun and stylish graphics.

In the beginning

The company was created in 2010 around a project called “Phi2Back” that measured and simulated the impacts of change in an organisation. Comatek quickly understood the importance of the project and decided to split it in two: one software module to collect visualise the results and another to neural module to characterise the change impacts.

The software module was christened U-STON and turned into a range of products that are branded today.

Since march 2011, there have been several major evolutions:
– production servers moved to a data centre
– certified as a ‘Young Innovative Company”
– staffing up
– U-STON suite upgraded to v3.0
– business development with several pilot schemes and new customers

Inspirations

Summer 2006 : Canada suffers from the worst forest fires in its history. Hundreds of square miles are decimated, thousands of people are without shelter or employment. Canada realises that it has a lack of information being exchanged about fires starting and the means to anticipate them.

Summer 2007 : The situation improves after public criticism over the handling of the previous years’ fires by using the politics of public vigilance everywhere and in particular in remote regions (the Water Wall Fire Program). Canada now has a simple system based on prevention and collaborative observation. Using the internet, any citizen can connect to a platform and:

– indicate whether or not they have seen smoke in the immediate surroundings to alert emergency services
– calculate the probability, based on the experience and local knowledge of where they live, of a fire in the next 24 hours.

Canada therefore invents the citizen lifeguard, a mixing ecologic, economic and society elements. Although it still suffers from forest fires, the system has enabled:

– the time to intervene has been reduced by a factor of 3
– the effectiveness of the fire prevention services has been improved by more then 76%
– the average size of the destroyed area, with equivalent atmospheric and fire brigade conditions, has been divided by 2,5

Of course, other factors may be responsible for the improvement, such as better land husbandry, road networks and fire breaks. This explains why Canada now includes questions about maintenance in its feedback application.

This conclusive experience showed us that the idea of adapting the collaborative method to gauge the atmosphere in a company was obvious and coherent with our way of thinking.

We are convinced (and our clients confirm it every day) that with U-STON/HR, our tool that translates the feeling of employees in a company, many smoldering conflicts could be avoided, many fires detected early and many company disputes resolved..

U-STON/HR is the reference tool to gauge feeling in a company, transforming each staff member into a deserving actor giving their own feedback.

The origin of the work “U-STON” comes from the moment when an astronaut says to Mission control “Houston, we’ve got a problem.” :-)
