Over the years we have experienced hundreds of intranets and have gained some great insight into achieving intranet success. I thought it would be useful to share some of our insight with you.

Nearly 1 in 5 people (7 million) in Great Britain have a disability according to the Disabled Living Foundation. Intranet accessibility is therefore something that should be a core part of the delivery of your intranet software. Every employee within your organisation needs to have the same intranet experience regardless of any disabilities they may have. I thought it would be useful to provide some insight into intranet accessibility and the benefits of ensuring your intranet is accessible by everyone within your business. If you would like to discuss your intranet software needs contact our intranet experts.

We advise our clients not to forget about their end users when embarking on their intranet software journey. Intranet user experience should be at the core of your solution and should encompass all of the learnings you gathered during your research phase. I thought it would be worthwhile to spend some time looking at what is meant by intranet user experience and what you need to do to be able to ensure your intranet solution will benefit your end users.
The first step of an intranet project is to define your goals and objectives, which in turn, will form part of your business case. While an intranet survey can help you identify areas to improve, more businesses are using stakeholder interviews to get a clear insight into intranet goals and objectives. In this blog I’m going to show you how you can use stakeholder interviews to achieve this.
We are very lucky this month to share with you a great guest blog by Jo Dodds of Counterpoint matters. Here she writes about the 4 pillars of employee engagement and how to engage remote workers with some great insight and ideas for you to think about.
Getting employees engaged in the strategic direction of your organisation can have massive benefits. As a tool spanning across the business, I want to show how your intranet software can be at the heat of your employee engagement initiatives.
If you have ever experimented with SharePoint you know how complex it can be. It provides the platform to manage documents, store lists as well as plug in to many other Microsoft products.
