Workplace goes beyond traditional systems such as the intranet, telephony systems, video conferencing systems and distribution lists and can be used on mobile devices (Workplace and Workplace Chat apps) as well, allowing for collaboration anywhere in the world. The platform is easy to use as it is so similar to Facebook that there is virtually no training required to use it for anyone who has used Facebook.

Fellows can save time by creating self-serve repositories and collaboration spaces that integrate with existing intranet and file-sharing tools, stay up to speed with conversations with other Fellows using groups, and can lastly, they can create 'FYI' groups and use live video for chat and announcements through the AFLI network.
