An intranet taps into the potential of your IT network to help streamline your internal processes and make everyone's life that little bit easier. An intranet is a secure internal business network which enables collaboration, information sharing and easy communication of data between colleagues. In larger companies they act as a central information point and can even form a community, acting as a staff noticeboard and communications tool.
With carefully controlled user access ensuring that everyone has access to just the areas they need, intranets can include the following functionality, but can also be created to fulfil almost any other requirement:
- Business systems Record keeping and other administrative work can be standardised, and paperwork reduced.
- Information storage and retrieval Telephone numbers, passwords, client contact information etc can be stored centrally and updated easily.
- Document management Enabling collaborative working on Office documents, including version control.
- Training database 'How to' guides and user notes accessible to all
- Integrated communications Intranets can be integrated with email systems, or used to distribute updates and bulletins straight to each desktop.
- Community building An intranet can also be used to build a community within larger companies, providing message-boards, forums
Good intranet design is often ignored, with no-one really having time to create a well structured, indexable resource. Freshleaf Media's modular intranet design and information architecture is built on our powerful business database design solutions, and allows you to create your corporate intranet to your specific requirements. Your intranet design might start as small as a telephone directory, and grow with your business to become a huge online resource, containing the breadth and depth of the company's accumulated knowledge and information.
