A while ago i had posted a query on whether we should invest on a SharePoint based board management system. An update on that, we did adopt the solution. We also did invest in a SharePoint based intranet portal software. I thought with all the help and insights you guys provided i could give back some now. So, here are some benefits i think we got from investing in such a solution. Hope it helps someone else.
Drives Internal Communication
An intranet can provide your team a central space where they can easily keep in touch with one another an collaborate.
Connects Your Company Across Locations and Time Zones:
By adopting an intranet, your company can eliminate any issues that come with disconnected teams. Now our off shore team and on shore team does not feel that communication gap they've felt before.
Helps Employees Find Information
By using an intranet, you'll gain access to a powerful search function that can help your team track down what they're looking for. No more monotonously clicking through folder after folder; just type what type in the name of the document and you'll be able to find it in no time at all.
Provides Organizational Clarity
An intranet can help alleviate this. An intranet with a clear, dynamic organization chart can help provide clarity and let people know what their position entails and who they can turn to with questions or concerns they may have about their position and the work they're meant to do.
An intranet is a great, centralized tool that makes it easy for your team to come together and benefit from collaboration. People can comment on each other's work, important work documents are more visible, and updated training or blog articles can easily be shared to increase knowledge.
Reinforces Your Company's Brand
Loyalty and dedication to the work they do only comes through repeated exposure to your brand and your values. A fully branded intranet allows you to make it clear who you are and what about your organization you value.
Saves You Time
With a corporate intranet, you can actually automate many of these menial tasks. this can free up your time and allow you to focus on the tasks and activities that actually matter.
An intranet can be a major tool for combating low employee engagement. It builds a central place for fostering active communication, feedback, collaboration, and more. We've found that companies that introduce a corporate intranet often see major increases in overall employee morale, productivity, and retention.
