Welcome to IntranetHelp.com! Our site exists to help you understand better what the function of an intranet is, how to start one for your business or organization, the benefits and common pitfalls your intranet could experience and how using an intranet can enhance communications, motivation and, ultimately, the bottom line in your business.
What are some of the benefits? An effective intranet first and foremost can serve to streamline and consolidate information dissemination and accessiblity. Your employees can have access to data, documents, vendor and customer information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Local and remote employees can participate equally, enabling remote employees to network with home office. This also enhances motivation, since all team members feel they are in touch with their peers, are informed on the latest news and part of a larger group of individuals all working together towards common goals.
A well-designed and optimized intranet feels comfortable and easy to navigate. The key to an effective site is to plan out the functions you want your intranet to serve and enlist the aid of appropriate expertise to help achieve them. Do some research on our site and find out more about what an intranet can offer. Most folks aren't even really sure what an intranet is or what it can do and that's why I created this site. Myself, I have been a web developer for 10 years and currently, I am employed managing (you guessed it) a locally installed and hosted corporate intranet and extranet. Last year our organization deployed a new application-based intranet and ease of use has increased significantly, both for me as the adminstrator and for the folks who contribute content. Most importantly, people actually use the intranet and it is increasingly the go-to point of reference for our organization. It can be for your group or team as well.
Intranets take many shapes and forms. From a page-based local site, to hosted solutions, to applications specifically designed to run an intranet, check out our site and send us your questions or feedback. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
