You’ve researched the benefits and decided it’s time to get down to brass tacks: What does a company intranet cost?
When your company has implemented a new intranet, the last thing you want your IT department to tell you is no one’s using it.
Have you ever looked at a string of emails and said to yourself, “This should’ve been a phone call?”
Of course, you have. We all have.
Over-reliance on email has become a real problem in the workplace. We’ve somehow decided it’s socially acceptable to have real-time conversations there, and the result is not good. We get a bloated inbox where important information is hard to find, and we spend hours every week trying to manage it all.
If you’ve decided on implementing a SharePoint intranet for your company, you’ll soon face a dizzying array of options for communicating with co-workers.
Between Microsoft Flow, PowerApps, and the ever-expanding suite of Office 365 products, the possibilities for customization are nearly limitless. This can be a blessing and a curse when it’s time to divvy up the real estate on the most precious of resources -- the SharePoint homepage.
In an increasingly mobile-centered world, business needs are changing, and so are the tools their employees use.
Intranets come with all kinds of bells and whistles these days.
Want a social newsfeed? You got it. Media gallery? No problem! But as you plan your deployment, keep in mind there are a few “must-have” features every intranet should have. These components often mean the difference between a productive, dynamic portal and one that tanks.
Your employees are planning their exit interview. Right now.
You know it’s true. At this very moment someone on your staff is withdrawing from the team, asking a manager for an unexplained schedule change, or exhibiting some other ominous sign that greener pastures are in sight.
As business executives, we love to talk about goals.
We scribble them on marker boards at staff meetings, write mission statements about them, and use them to evaluate employees; yet, many companies miss the importance of setting objectives for their intranets. It’s hard to understand why.
Hiring a SharePoint consultant is not as easy as it used to be.
There are more of us now, and each consulting company has its own spin about why they are the best at what they do.
