What is an intranet?

An intranet is a private platform where only the employees from an organisation have access. With this platform staff can share knowledge and collaborate together as a team, to improve internal communications and save time on task driven projects.

An Intranet should provide a platform to promote the sharing of knowledge and aid working practices. It should act as a knowledge hub and central resource, acting as a first point of call for any information related to the business. The Intranet should strengthen the corporate brand by ensuring all members of the organisation use the correct resources in terms of documents, logos and signatures. This improves the internal communication and saves time on task driven projects.

What are the benefits of an intranet

  • Improved internal communications

  • Sharing resources and knowledge

  • Training platform and collaborative working

  • Enhanced project management

  • Increased transparency

The benefits  of intranet software are many as this is a useful business tool as it improves work efficiency and collaboration between departments and teams.

Important information can be stored and announced within the company. An intranet can also act as a training platform when providing online training to staff. The intranet can be used as a tool to keep track on progressions with various projects. When staff can communicate directly through chats and there is an open area to view all the results - this creates a transparency that is easy to follow for both management and colleagues.
