What is an Intranet and why would it be useful to my organization?

An intranet is a private network, that allows access to company data to people within your organization. It can be used for document sharing, company updates, approval processes and a whole range of other services. It is a website for your company employees only.

We like Intranets because it is an essential part of the Digital Transformation journey and allows users to have access to a modern workplace.

Here are a few symptoms you should look out for:

  • Document management is getting difficult and documents are getting lost.
  • Not able to keep track of the different versions.
  • Documents are getting deleted and you don’t know who deleted them.
  • Paper is taking the valuable real estate in the office.
  • You are concerned about security and who has access to the documents?
  • Trying to figure out a backup for all the files?
  • Your inboxes are full of emails because you are sharing files and documents?
  • Everyone has their own bookmarks for all the other sites your company uses?

An Intranet can also be used to enhance communication between employees when you have people in different physical locations. It can help keep documents organized and accessible to the right group of people.

We have been building custom intranets for a long time. So, we took some of the most useful features and packaged them up in an easy to use no hassle service to include years of our experience. Check out the Smart Intranet Suite and how it can help your organization work more efficiently. Smart Intranet Suite is available through our online store.
