Why have an intranet site?

Modern workplaces can be chaotic, with lots of people working on lots of different projects, asking questions, sharing information, trying to tick off a ‘to-do’ list as long as their arms.

To be at its most effective a business needs to bring this chaos to order, to organize it so that everyone knows what has been done, what needs to be done and who needs to do it or has done it. In this way, a company becomes more efficient, more productive and more effective.

Improving the efficiency of an organization can help to improve the bottom line. In the UK for instance, research has shown that inefficient processes costs businesses an average of £28,000 per year. 

The benefits of implementing a company intranet

Implementing an intranet site is the best way to organize the internal workings of a business. Better organization means greater efficiency.

Ideally an intranet site will have the exact communications and collaboration tools that an employee needs, alongside the apps and access to files they require to do their job, all in one easy to navigate interface.

This site should let staff know the latest news from around the company and the industry to help both keep them informed enough to be able to do their jobs effectively, while also creating a bond that fosters loyalty.

Furthermore, if that site is also designed to look and feel in a way that reinforces a business’ brand, then it can also help to improve employees’ sense of place. They will be able to communicate effectively with clients and stakeholders what the ethos of the organization is, making them brand ambassadors.

To sum up, why a business needs an intranet site is not confined to just one reason, but to many. Collaboration, communication, clarity and loyalty can all be enhanced by a quality, bespoke intranet site.  For examples of how Unily, the leading intranet solution, has transformed businesses take a look at our case studies page
