5 Benefits of Having an Intranet Portal

Intranet portals are usually used by big companies, but small and medium enterprises can benefit from having them as well. Even if your company is not big yet, this blog post will show you five advantages of having an intranet portal.

1. Improved communication

With an intranet portal both staff members and managers can easily share appointments and alerts. Ideas can be posted on discussion boards along with relevant information. Also, when many people from different departments work on the same project, an intranet portal will help keep the information up-to-date. The intranet portal is a good place to recognize performers.

2. Streamlined processes

A good intranet platform improves internal processes. The accessible nature of an intranet portal will reduce questions and phone calls regarding common issues that may not be available (or hard to come by) otherwise.

3. Managed data

The intranet portal is a place where you can update corporate documents, procedures, guidelines, protocols, and resources in one click. The intranet website can serve as a place where online training content is hosted and served. You will see that knowledge is easily maintained on intranet portals. An intranet website significantly reduces print and distribution costs.

4. Cross-platform usage

Intranet websites can be easily accessed from different operating systems and browsers which is a tangible advantage especially if your IT team uses PCs that operate on UNIX, while your designers use computers that work on Mac.

5. Gradual growth

You don’t need to have something sophisticated right from the start. Your intranet portal can grow along with your business. When there is a need you can invest in a robust web-server and have more information and software available on the intranet.

If your company does not use this tool, think about how it can solve communication or document storage issues in your company. Also consider giving your intranet a different image and structure from your customer-facing website. It will give your internal communications team their own identity and will strengthen the company’s culture.

It is important to handle the implementation and adoption of the intranet with the help of professionals. Get in touch with us and we will help you go through the process of getting an intranet portal.

Our Approach to Your Project

Whether it’s a small task, functional system or app creation, we know that our best work happens when our clients and team speak the same language.
 
Building something significant for our clients properly, takes a weighty amount of effort. Yet how exactly do we go about getting everyone in sync?

We always encourage our clients to be active right from the start. We ask every client and their team to be as involved as possible for a successful discovery phase. We want not only in the ultimate product, but the process itself to be interesting, creative, clear and gratifying. For some clients it’s their first time teaming up with a software development company. Thus, we believe it’s meaningful that their experience runs with ease. 

1. Thoroughly Planning 

At this starting step there is knowledge transfer and research. Understanding both business and user goals. Together with the client’s team we are carefully reviewing and analyzing our findings and planning out the overall implementation strategy. As gatekeepers of projects and timelines, we help set reasonable forecasts for delivering your asked end result.

2. Diminish Drawbacks

We want to cut down the learning curve when you get on board with our team. The project itself already requires your time and regard, so why make the process more difficult? One way we diminish drawbacks is by using simple project management tools. We like YouTrack, it lets you track and manage issues from the moment they’re reported to the moment they’re fixed. Information is continuously exchanged over YouTrack and quick questions are answered in real-time on Skype.

3. Building Trust

Defensible, the most important ingredient of any successful relationship. We are as invested in your success as in our own. DAS has a consultative approach and client oriented – we always consult our clients and advise them the best ways of achieving their business scopes. We are always trying to be aligned culturally, and are focused on partnership. Our clients and companies aren’t trophies, they’re friends we’ve met on our journey. That’s one of the motive we advocate transparency throughout each phase of our process. Check out some more details how we do that here. After all, our tagline is “The Code You Trust”, explains a lot, huh? 

Whether you are a client or an agency, creating clear expectations on both sides helps foster trust and confidence. Nonetheless, save time and money, and let’s face it – brain cells.
