New Era For Intranets

5 March 2015   Glen Chambers

Our bet is that if you asked your workforce to describe how the Cloud works, or what they know about different Office apps, chances are not many of them would give you a full or detailed answer.

But, if you were to ask them what information they find most useful, where they go to find knowledge, or how they share what they know, then their answers would be much more comprehensive.

That’s because at the end of the day, most workers (or at least the workers who actually get things done) care much less about the mechanics of SharePoint or the Cloud, than they do about getting their jobs done well and efficiently. We couldn’t agree more.

Our experience of working with all sorts of different companies has shown us that people just want to be productive, to easily share the information they need, and to take all the good bits from social tools that they love to use outside the office, and be able to use them inside the office. If it makes their job easier, faster and, dare we say it, more fun - then you can be assured that you will get the user adoption rate you want and the cultural changes your aiming for.

Technology is only ever as good as the people willing to use it and embrace it. Give people a compelling reason as to why they should use it and the rest will quickly follow. It sounds simple enough, but all too often companies get caught up in ‘how’ it all works, when really, most people couldn’t care less as long as it ticks the efficiency and simplicity boxes. It’s why we are 100% committed to making sure that the big technology goals don’t become all consuming and start to swamp the culture itself. Technology for technology’s sake is not how new cultures are encouraged and invested in.

If you approach the notion of an Intranet as a Service as more than just a product, you can start to see why Unily offers such scope and potential as a SharePoint Intranet solution. SharePoint already boasts expansive functionality out-of-the-box, but Unily takes it one step further. Put simply, Unily is the result of BrightStarr’s total experience of delivering numerous corporate Intranet solutions and it is designed to meet the many demands of today’s modern enterprise, such as social,news, blogs, document management, collaborative workspaces and mobility. It’s like super-charging your SharePoint and Office 365 adoption with the result that it works even harder for your business, thanks to the substantial investment in developing this Intranet solution.

Our inclusive Unily consultancy and support services are there to guarantee your digital solutions deliver on the bottom line, boosting productivity and validating your IT investment, not just for now but ongoing into the future. And, in a world where industry trends and best practice rapidly evolve, it’s good to know our Unily service is offered on a subscription basis (reflecting Microsoft’s online pricing model). That means you benefit from a managed solution, that is both evolving on its own roadmap, and allows for customization and full access to the SharePoint platform to meet your specific needs. It also ensures a very competitive cost base when compared to a traditional project approach.

Isn't it about time that you embraced the new era of Intranets?
