To serve the needs of clients taking their first step into the waters of implementing a corporate intranet, Abel Solutions offers Share|Net – a highly configurable intranet software option ideal for encouraging productivity, communication, and collaboration in a growing business.
What is an Intranet?
An intranet is a secure portal through which employees may digitally interact with their business’s information. They typically house data of all types that need to be accessible to workers as they perform daily tasks or projects. Companies often implement an intranet to consolidate their systems and improve their processes in the pursuit of greater efficiency.
Reasons for Implementing an Intranet
Communication difficulties are an unexpected growing pain that companies must eventually deal with; when getting important information to relevant people becomes a chore, notifying all concerned parties of document updates turns into an unmanageable hassle, and project collaboration is a disaster of miscommunication, it is time to adopt an intranet solution. An effective intranet solution should promote greater efficiency by improving the flow of information between components of the company.
Many corporate intranets struggle in initial adoption and long-term employee usage, however, for a variety of reasons. Intranet software that does not meet employee needs, either by being outdated or inefficient, falls into irrelevance in the minds of its users. If the portal is not navigable, intuitive, and useful, all the benefits that it offers to a business are left unutilized.
Abel Solutions has prepared a solution that addresses both these issues effectively; Share|Net is a SharePoint-based answer to clients’ struggles.
Share|Net is an ideal intranet solution in that it enables companies to more effectively communicate with its employees. For instance, keeping affected parties abreast of corporate announcements is a simple matter of broadcasting them on the home page through an application. Document management and version control are simplified by using built-in document libraries, specific to each department; shared access to content housed in one central location and only editable by one person at a time guarantees that all employees are only working with the most recent version of any file. Employees can use dedicated project pages to assign tasks, keep up with deadlines, and maintain a big-picture perspective. By automating processes that don’t require direct supervision, Nintex workflows and forms speed along any business operation: from employee recruitment and onboarding to sales and procurement.
Share|Net can accomplish these things and more; by delivering the following features out-of-the-box in an easy-to-use bundle, Share|Net provides greater utility than competing intranet software:
- Configured navigation layout
- Home page format
- Departmental pages for Finance, Marketing, IT, and HR, with the capacity to add further department subsites as necessary
- Workflow for requesting personal time
- Database for benefits information
- Workflow-automated provisioning of collaboration sites
- File Tree app provides file navigation system similar to Windows Explorer
- Document search function
- MyPortal page offers quick access to individualized projects, tasks, requests, etc.
After implementing this robust intranet system, Abel Solutions will then customize and brand the pages to make them best fit your company’s requirements. For those clients with either exceptionally large or specific needs, our SharePoint experts also build fully-customized intranet solutions from the ground up. Although not as quick to deploy as the out-of-the-box option, clients can be assured that their custom-built alternative will be tailor-made to fulfill every need they could have of their intranet.
