Time-consuming tasks

Time-consuming tasks. We offer the full automation of tasks like document approval, employee recruiting, onboarding training, which speeds up business operations, boosts overall employee productivity and reduces operational costs.

Fragmented business processes

Fragmented business processes. We unite such processes as document management, project management and asset management into one system to help you to avoid the silo approach and increase efficiency.

Low employee performance

Low employee performance. We provide your employees with a personal digital workplace that contains all necessary SharePoint productivity and collaboration tools at their fingertips. If your business needs go beyond SharePoint functionality, we will extend your intranet’s features through integration with other Microsoft products or third-party tools. Thus, employees won’t lose time switching between the tools, which will increase their performance.

Inefficient collaboration

Inefficient collaboration. We build business-oriented intranets as centers of employee collaboration. We enrich them with a range of tools (team sites, project sites, discussion boards, instant messaging) that connect employees and allow them to share information and edit documents in real time. If you choose the cloud deployment of a SharePoint intranet, we will help you to nurture collaboration even across geographically dispersed teams due to its 24/7 access and availability from different devices and browsers.

Unorganized information storage

Unorganized information storage. To facilitate and accelerate employee decision-making, we deliver business-oriented intranets that serve a single source of the company’s information: corporate news, project-related updates, organizational knowledge base, and employee handbook. We also leverage SharePoint search capabilities, for example, full-text search and personalization of content to let users quickly find relevant information.

Compliance risks

Compliance risks. To support a company’s compliance with internal regulations and external regulations like SOX, HIPAA, GLBA, we create a safe working environment for your employees. We enable restricting user access to SharePoint collaboration areas based on permissions and two-factor authentication. In addition, we implement audit reporting, content retention and deletion policies, which is required by compliance regulations.

Document management

Types of Business Intranets We Provide

Based on your business needs, you can choose the most suitable type of a business intranet:

  • An intranet with business-specific web parts and applications. We enrich your intranet with web parts that facilitate business activities: Events, Planner, People, Quick Links, Recent Documents and others. Web parts can also help your employees to stay tuned for the latest industry news (the News web part) and financial data updates (the Stock Quotes web part).
  • An intranet with customized business sites for departments and teams. We attend to departmental work specifics by creating custom sites within a company’s intranet. We fill them with relevant content (documents, forms, knowledge base) and tools, for example, the Stock Quotes web part for a financial department. We also implement necessary integrations to facilitate the work of particular departments and teams. For instance, we can integrate a SharePoint intranet with a billing system (an accounting department), CRM (a sales team), a case management tool (a legal department), an asset management system (a procurement department).
  • An intranet centered around specific business functionality. It may be contract management, training and development, ticketing and help desk, asset management, knowledge management, etc. Besides general business features, our solution will cover training enrollment and scheduling, group project space, knowledge assessment and certification. We can also implement a microtraining app to enable your employees to learn on the go.
