Intranets? – Modern day Dinosaurs?

Social Networking Communications

We Don’t Think So … An Efficient Modern Intranet can dramatically resolve internal business issues such as poor employee engagement, limited internal communication, disenchanted staff, and weak company culture.

Always keep it simple.

Intranets can be extremely complex animals (fully customized and built from the ground up by your internal IT expert and your team of management experts ) or supremely simple (turnkey solutions that are pre-built by Intranet experts). The more complex you make an intranet, the more expensive and time-consuming it becomes to build and maintain. Strive for the simplest intranet that’s still full-featured and rich enough to meet your needs.

The secret to finding the right intranet

The key to finding the right intranet is knowing exactly what your needs are and having them front and centre. What do you actually want to achieve with this intranet? It could be reduced email, stronger workplace culture, or higher levels of employee engagement. Either way, you should have a crystal clear idea of why you need an intranet and what you want the end result to be.

Once you know this, you can set up calls with a number of different intranet providers and find out how their product will satisfy your needs. They will all have slightly different approaches and different features to help you get results. It’s up to you to go with what works best for you in terms of usability, cost, richness of features, security – the list can go on ….
