Abel Solutions provides a comprehensive solution for companies’ digital workplace needs — Share|Net is a pre-configured, SharePoint-powered intranet system that helps clients adapt and respond to the internal communication struggles facing businesses today.
The Importance of a Digital Workplace
Efficiency is a company’s best friend. Yet businesses plagued with communication issues cannot be efficient. Certain workplace practices and system limitations prevent growing businesses from effectively communicating with their employees. If you find that employees cannot locate important information, are not aware of corporate policies or expectations, and find collaborative projects extremely frustrating, then it is time to institute a solution that handles these problems. Consider implementing a digital workplace.
A digital workplace, more often referred to as a company intranet, is a hub through which employees access the company’s digital information. It is like a contained internet, where all the web pages have to do with your company and are for your employees’ eyes only.
Workers signing in at the beginning of their day are directed to the home page, which may contain any range of important information that an employee may need. In most intranet systems, the home page is a prominent place where companies broadcast messages to their employees, such as impending events, corporate announcements, policy changes, etc. A document library, open to all relevant employees for easy access to important documents, makes project management a great deal easier. An accompanying versioning system that allows only one person to edit a file at a time while keeping a record of previous revisions ensures both that no one is working with out-of-date files and that older versions are accessible for audit or recovery.
A quality intranet software can ease the difficulties that come with communicating across a growing business by centralizing information in an accessible, digital environment.
Finding the Best Fit
Not all intranets are created equal, however. If an intranet does not appeal to its users — clunky navigation, dated appearance, inscrutable interface, hidden tools, irrelevant information, etc. — then no one will use it. Making sure that not only is the program intuitive and easy to use, but also that employees are aware of how to use it and what it can accomplish are important facets of parlaying implementation into everyday use in the workplace.
Beyond functioning well, an effective intranet must yield actual benefit; it must take into consideration the difficulties with communication and efficiency that employees face daily, or it will be a wasted effort. A system that does not provide for the needs of its users will never be used, and an unused intranet is not delivering the benefits it was implemented to bring.
Abel Solutions took both form and function into account when we created our SharePoint-based intranet solution, Share|Net.
Share|Net is a comprehensive intranet solution aimed at streamlining communications between clients’ companies and their employees. The home page, to which all workers are directed when they first log in every morning, prominently displays company-wide announcements, a calendar to note upcoming events, and an assortment of links through which they can digitally interact with corporate. Employees may then navigate to their department site, upon which they will find information and tools more specific to their role in the workplace. After setting up the intuitive navigation scheme and time-saving workflows, Abel Solutions will then brand your site as desired to reflect your company’s culture and values.

As an out-of-the-box solution, Share|Net is an effective option for clients that need to see very rapid returns and do not have especially complex needs. And while Share|Net is a flexible and customizable digital platform from which we can help you expand if necessary, some clients will require a more tailor-made solution to fit their company’s needs. For those businesses that need a more intensive fix, an Abel Solutions SharePoint consultant will custom-build your intranet solution from the ground up to most dutifully fulfill the requirements your workplace demands of your intranet.
