I work in an organization with a headcount of 7,000+, which I joined ~3 months ago. It is extremely difficult to contact, or to find contact details of the person one is looking for. The usual way here is for people to put their contact details in their e-mail signatures, and hopefully the person you want to talk to would have e-mailed you in the past.
We use Gmail and hangouts, but people often do not respond to hangouts. What I would want to do is the following -
- Search for a person by name, and get his details. Conversely, search for people by phone numbers.
- Given a person, I want to know what team he works in, what his team does, who he reports to, and who report to him, and his peers.
- Should be bulk-update friendly - often many employees join as a batch, or people get promoted in batches.
- It would be nice if there was a corresponding (Android) app for looking up/dialling people.
Is there an open-source application which does this?
I worked for Amazon many years ago - they had such a user directory that was pretty bare-bones, but user-friendly - looking for something similar to that.
