what are they, why do you need one AND why would you build one using Office 365 and SharePoint?

We know it seems like a bit of a ‘buzz word’ but now, more than ever, an intranet is imperative to run a successful business, why you may ask? Because, businesses must be able to easily provide their team with their relevant documents; resources and tools and these need to be accessible from anywhere, anytime, from any device. If you can’t do this, you’re hindering their efficiency and potentially costing yourself 1,000s of dollars in lost productivity…you may even lose good staff!


What is an intranet?

It’s a central source of truth for your company information! It helps your team find the tools; resources and documents they need to successfully (efficiently) complete their day-to-day work in a consistent way.

Why do you need one?

Well, if you’re a business that is growing (has grown); your finding that delivery to your clients is inconsistent? You’re wanting to professionalise and standardise your business systems and processes OR you’re just wanting a central spot for business info that’s accessible anytime, anywhere from any device ……these are all great reasons!

How do you create a successful Intranet?

Put in the time and effort to think through what you and (probably more importantly) your team NEED to do their work more effectively.

The best place to start is to ask them for their current pain-points/issues and areas they believe can be improved.

Questions to ask:

  • What problems are you trying to solve?
  • Who needs to be involved?
  • How will you measure the success of your new intranet?
  • Who will use the intranet?

Why Would you create one using SharePoint + O365?

Let’s start by saying, there are MANY different platforms for successful intranets. The reason we are passionate about utilising SharePoint and the other O365 Applications, is because you’re most likely already paying for it, so why not?!

With SharePoint you’re getting, not only a full cloud file storage application with 1TB of storage, with 10GB additional per user licence, you also get beautiful ‘device responsive pages’, allowing you to embed videos, forms, text and images! You can also have various other items included on these pages which give users a fantastic experience…AND don’t forget the incredible SEARCH features .
