A recent study from Harvard Business Review reveals that attributes of top performing companies include: collaboration, honesty, innovation and agility. With the right intranet solution, you can strengthen these aspects of your business. Here are 4 things to consider when choosing an intranet platform:
1. Will the intranet platform encourage collaboration?
The best intranet is one that is social. Whether your company has one office or locations all over the world, an intranet should bring employees together on one platform where they can share ideas, ask questions, collaborate on documents and leverage each others expertise. A successful solution will have a feature that allows employees to chat.
2. Will the intranet platform improve your company’s communication?
Today’s workforce values employers with integrity. An intranet can help companies nurture deeper relationships with employees by sharing insights on financial health, the vision and mission of the organization, product roadmaps, company events, and much more. The right solution will allow your company to create department-specific pages, post announcements, and share content relevant to each user.
3. Does the intranet platform integrate with other systems?
The intranet should be a hub for resources. It makes your employees more efficient by reducing the time they spend searching for assets such as sales/marketing documents, news, videos, and sales dashboards. The best intranets integrate with other systems, allowing you to display everything on one platform.
4. Is the intranet platform adaptable?
Remaining agile is a key differentiator for any business. Successful companies are able to quickly respond to internal and external changes in the environment. It’s crucial to have an intranet that is scalable and can easily be updated by adding new pages, changing content and inserting new sections into existing page layouts.
