When Evaluating Intranet Platforms, Look for these 4 Key Factors
The first “intranet” was Yammer, which was just a place to share social updates with co-workers. Today organizations need an advanced platform they could customize that would allow them to share and organize files, too.
Enterprises today battle with four common complaints with a traditional intranet:
“I don’t know where to post.”
“I don’t know how to post.”
“I can’t find what I need.”
“I can’t access what I need.”
Also, it became apparent that a platform designed for desktop users who work in an office setting simply would not work for a mobile workforce.
Organizations today employ associates across the globe, most of whom go online via their smartphones. We cannot expect our associates to wait until they could get to a computer to read important company news or file in their expenses. Simply put, the traditional platform is failing to give them the information they needed when and where they needed it.
For a workplace intranet to be embraced quickly by your associates, a few key factors that enterprises should keep in mind when assessing intranet platforms:
- Leverage current investments. Choose a solution that can leverage your existing IT investments and can facilitate seamless integration with your current business enterprise.
- Customizability and ability to extend/alter easily. Your modern intranet set up should be adaptable to be tailored, modified and reconfigured to suit your organizational needs.
- Should not require dedicated content managers. It should be backed up with meta data driven technology to fetch information and surface it in an intuitive and contextual manner.
- Provide localization and personalization. Don’t underestimate the cost and time associated with searching for relevant information & news by the workforce. The platform you select should quickly display information & news based on location, job role, time of the day without having to search for it.
