You know how critical this can be for your evolution and possibly survival as a business.

A world away from SharePoint extranets

Some companies are using Sharepoint as their foundation for an extranet. Sharepoint extranets have been a great solution for some time in providing a place where collaboration between your employees and external organisations can take place. Things move on. Horses were good once, but you’d rather drive your car to work these days. There is more to collaboration and a digital workplace that extends outside of your organisation than Sharepoint alone can deliver with sparkle and innovation.

Unily starts from a different place to a Sharepoint extranet. Where Sharepoint puts files, structures and hierarchy at the centre of its thinking, Unily puts people at the centre of its world. Whether it be the beautiful user experiences or the intuitive way content is delivered to the right people, Unily was built for the individual to do more while at work. Unily fits around people. It’s not people trying to fit around a Sharepoint extranet.

This does not mean that with Unily you cannot have cross system search, powerful document management tools with version controls; you do. Workspaces and collaboration tools are best of breed. It’s just that where Sharepoint was technology led, Unily is people led.

Cross-organisation collaboration & communication

Unily’s powerful Broadcast Center allows you to communicate across the whole Unily extranet audience in an easy yet, very powerful way. Some messages are relevant for only segments of the extranet user-base – groupings allow messages to be delivered to only those that area relevant. Conversely system wide messages can be sent with the reassurance that everyone will see them promptly.

A Unily extranet allows users their own control over what they see and how they see it. This empowers them to feel that they have some ownership of their part of the system. It also makes things more efficient. If they know they should be seeing messages from certain projects and business areas they can choose to prioritise these in their news feeds and within the layout of their version of Unily’s interface.

What can a Unily Extranet achieve for you

Probably more than you think. Extranets open up realms of possibilities that you and your team may not have thought about. Creating a digital workspace that reaches outside of an organisation to improve collaboration and innovation requires changing an organisation’s thinking.

With our experience in delivering these solutions, our customer success managers work on an ongoing basis with clients as we know your needs will evolve over time. Your extranet will be delivered with a certain set of capabilities in mind. Once these are set up, it is likely that more requirements will appear. Good news, Unily has the power to evolve and develop with you and keep delivering to help you achieve more.
