A hybrid intranet offers a stable and effective way of taking on a migration to the cloud, while mitigating risk. A hybrid system is one that uses both on-premises and cloud services to deliver an integrated solution. It in effect combines a private traditional system, with a publicly hosted cloud instance, sometimes offering the best of both worlds. Unily offers a Hybrid option, allowing you to deploy an innovative cloud intranet whilst maintaining your on premises sites.
Unily takes direct advantage of Hybrid Search capabilities to crawl content from varying sources, for example SharePoint Server 2016 and Office 365 into a single, streamlined repository. This ensures that users have access to everything they need from one location, dramatically improving efficiency and the experience for the user. Many of Unily’s content and documents widgets are built using Search services provided by Office 365 and SharePoint Online, meaning that Unily can inherently take advantage of the Hybrid Search features.

"One of the things that I think is really stellar about MyELC is the native mobile app. It is the first time we've had the entire intranet actually on mobile, not just a subset of it, and it's organized well so you don't get lost and you can actually find what you need. I've worked on intranets off and on for a long time and I've never seen a mobile experience this strong before."
"People want short, quick, real-time communications. That didn't exist before, today it's instant."
"By providing this new, mobile Unily intranet solution to our 44,000 colleagues, we are helping them to connect and communicate more effectively, which ultimately means a more consistent, high-quality service delivered to customers."
"Unily’s implementation team has been top-notch and their customer service has been very responsive. Employees love the look and feel of our new intranet."
"Unily fit our vision and met our strict security protocols on the backend. We’re very excited to be working with Unily to design an intranet that will enable our employees to feel more connected."
"As our colleagues are used to using Facebook, Twitter, and so on - to have the same great user experience with an internal tool is a gift for them."
"We wanted an enhanced intranet platform at Baker Hughes, which would improve our ability to communicate with our employees in real-time and in new ways. We have engaged Unily to help our employees navigate through change and drive results globally."
"Before Unily, our digital workplace was essentially useless. No one went there for anything, and it was not used as a communication channel at all. Because of this, we had no way to get content out to employees who needed it, and it took employees 50% longer to find the information they needed to get their job done – if they could find it at all. This led to people going to ‘who they knew’ rather than getting the official information from the intranet."
"Unily has great search capabilities, contemporary design, is viewable on any device and soon will allow us to reach employees in our distribution centers, labs, and transport networks for the first time. It’s a real game changer for us."
"The Unily platform allows our employees to access relevant content more quickly, choose how and when they stay informed and take advantage of opportunities to collaborate more effectively with colleagues."
"Unily enables colleagues to stay up to date, share knowledge and collaborate, and ultimately helps us work smarter as we seek to continue to innovate and grow as a business."
"Working closely with Unily, we were able to design and implement an intranet solution that has improved usability, accessibility and navigation for our employees across the country. This has been especially important since the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic."
"Our intranet has a high degree of engagement and readership - we're really seeing our community come alive."
"Our ambition was to design a system that would significantly reduce the time our clinical teams spend locating the apps and information they need at their fingertips. The Unily system surpassed these requirements and has transformed the digital workplace experience for our staff."
"Being well informed, collaborating, communicating with colleagues and effective search tools – these are central to our new intranet. "
