An intranet is no longer just a landing page, it is your organisation’s one-stop digital workspace. It’s where your colleagues can collaborate, access key company knowledge, and locate their business tools. Those business tools will include an array of systems such as Office365, communication platforms (e.g. Yammer, Slack, Teams), Google apps and shared drives. So how can you organise these systems and make it easier for your colleagues to navigate them all?
Your colleagues could be wasting valuable time searching for links, struggling with logins, and generally getting frustrated with the multiple systems they need in order to do their jobs and communicate with their peers. This isn’t just a loss to the business in terms of working hours – it kills the individual’s productivity and satisfaction. It could also pose a security issue, if your colleagues feel impelled to write down logins because the systems aren’t linked up. And let’s not forget one of the most talked-about workplace subjects over the past 18 months: remote working. If your colleagues used to rely on desktop computers and office settings, being suddenly located at home may have been a difficult adjustment, both mentally and logistically. The persistent remote and hybrid working models mean it’s more important than ever to provide your workforce with an efficient and linked-up digital environment. Your SMLWRLD intranet holds the answer.
In a nutshell, businesses need to streamline their digital workspace, bringing all those systems and tools together into one “hub” for employees to operate from. You might think that integrating all your business tools and systems would be a large, costly project – but it doesn’t need to be. The key is for your systems not just to be located together, but to “play nicely” with each other. SMLWRLD bespoke intranet solutions are built on a Microsoft tech stack, which means they cooperate seamlessly with Microsoft applications, including Sharepoint. So users can launch applications such as Outlook, Teams, Yammer and Office programs directly within the intranet platform. And integrating with third-party applications (such as Slack, Facebook@work, Dropbox and any other business tools) is no problem either. Where logins aren’t being handled by an Active Directory, the intranet can perform a “handshake” to handle the individual’s login details, without the user needing to enter separate credentials.
All the tools and systems that your company uses on a regular basis are listed in one easy place. No need for individuals to bookmark all these tools on their personal browser. No need to spend time and effort finding out which tools are used for what, which is even more crucial in the world of remote working. A company’s entire digital ecosystem is in one place – the intranet.
