Unily Cloud Intranet Transforms Communication for Hersheys

The award winning Cloud Intranet built on Microsoft's Azure and Office 365

The Hershey Company was founded in 1894 and is now located in more than 70 countries and employs over 21,000 remarkable people.  With 80+ iconic favorites that include Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars, Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, the company is globally famous for bringing goodness to the world. The Hershey Company also wanted to bring goodness to their employees to unite their workforce, with a high-end, consumer grade intranet experience that would empower them to connect and collaborate. Key drivers included having a scalable, evergreen platform that would reduce infrastructure costs and fully utilize their Office 365 licenses. Our Unily Hub intranet was the perfect ingredient.

Feature-full Intranet Software to support your Retail Team

Personalized Internal Communications

Internal communications are created and delivered barrier-free. It simply doesn’t matter what device employees utilize, where they are located, what language they speak or what role they fill in the company. Unily Hub delivers the content they need quickly, relevantly and responsively.

Document Management

Unily Hub harnesses the best of Microsoft’s Document Management software SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business and enhances it with custom experiences to make it easier, faster and smarter. Intelligent tagging, unique refining search and Delve integration makes documents findable, saving your employees' time.

People Directory & Profiles

Each employee has their own People Profile, integrated with Azure Active Directory to share their expertise and essential information, all seamlessly integrated with Skype for Business for instant communication. A supporting Directory with a rapid refining search connects People, Groups and Equipment in seconds.

Collaboration Sites

As well as traditional SharePoint sites, Unily's custom Tribes and Microsites allow you to rapidly create visually engaging pages that bring together news, people, resources, social channels and more that helps inform and engage employees. Whether it's Tribes to reflect different departments or Micro-sites to run a particular campaign, the power of collaboration is in your hands.

Seamless Social Networking

Social capabilities are threaded throughout the experience for real-time interaction, including people profiles, directory, events, polls, surveys and microsites. View the company Yammer feeds as well as specific groups you belong to from a single location. Like and share stories and follow people that interest you.

Push notifications to mobile help to engage remote workers, ensuring all employees never miss a beat.

Badges & Gamification

Gamification functionality in the form of profile Badges helps to drive motivation of employees and interaction with the intranet. Content editors can create custom badges to reward anything from subject matter experts, compliance or individual achievements. Badges are highlighted direct on employee's profiles, encouraging competition amongst peers.

Native Mobile Apps

Unily delivers native apps for Windows, Android and iOS. The full-featured mobile experience goes beyond the ability to receive content passively, allowing users to dynamically search for what they need.
