Online spaces for your teams to work together are critical for any business, providing an accessible, secure location for people to share ideas, collaborate on documents and manage projects. We’ve learnt that one style of collaboration doesn’t suit all, which is why Unily’s collaboration functionality comes in a few different flavours. Tribes, Sites and SharePoint Sites come together within Unily to offer flexible, quick to build spaces to share information, bring people together and work on projects. Whether you need to highlight your departments, create a one-stop location for information around a particular campaign or provide an online space to collaborate on documents, Unily’s vast collaboration capabilities will provide an answer.
For sites that require a flexible layout with differing types of content, Unily Sites are the answer. Sites empower your users to easily create great looking, mobile-friendly pages to share information and resources using dynamic widgets and rich text content that can be dragged and dropped into place. Unique navigations are automatically created based on your content structure, allowing your users to easily build out complex information architecture with absolutely no code. With its own content creation area within the CMS, governance of content creation becomes seamless.
Utilize a library of rich Widgets including Document Feeds, Social Feeds, Video Feeds and more, with the flexibility to set titles, number of items shown and ‘View More’ links. With a roadmap of exciting new Widgets heading to the Unily platform, your users have never had more freedom to create truly awesome intranet content.
Tribes are the perfect space for departments or internal communities who need a front page on the intranet. With a template page design, Tribes aggregate content from across Unily, Yammer and SharePoint, highlighting news, people, resources, information, social channels and more. Tribes are completely responsive across any device with a smart scroll navigation that can be provisioned in a few clicks. Each widget dynamically updates reducing management and maintenance time for your content editors and helping you to quickly share essential information with your teams.
Unily provides quick access to your SharePoint Sites using the Workspaces navigation, allowing your users to utilize out of the box collaboration with SharePoint Sites, while bringing them into your intranet architecture. SharePoint Sites can also be branded with Unily styling so users can seamlessly move between the Unily intranet and SharePoint without a significantly different user experience. Any documents within SharePoint sites are surfaced within Unily’s central Documents Directory to further integrate the two and make documents more findable.
Help your communities thrive with Unily’s dedicated customer success management. We work with you to map your existing and new content to the relevant collaboration template or Sites, helping you to ensure you’re utilizing the functionality in the most understandable and effective way. As part of this, we advise on the best Information Architecture and taxonomy for your intranet, helping users to easily find and contribute to the collaboration areas. This extensive post-deployment support will help you make your intranet the hub of collaborative activity, supporting teams around the globe to work smarter.
Unily has two unique licensing models designed to address the needs of your specific worker profiles. Unily Hub is our Office 365 integrated solution for those employees who require full access to SharePoint collaboration tools, while Unily Engageis available for users who may not require an Office 365 account, such as those working off-site in a retail store. Both Hub and Engage users have access to Tribes and Sites within Unily, but Unily Hub users will have the added collaboration benefits that come with SharePoint.
