"So there’s the internet.
Deciding to build an intranet is easy. But, actually building an intranet takes thought, planning, and execution. Your underlying goal is to create something that everybody will use and that enables you to reach the goals you have set for your intranet.
If you aren't clear on your underlying goals then you are headed for trouble. If you are building an intranet just because you think you should, you’re already in trouble. Not every company needs an intranet. And although there are low-cost solutions, the cost of investing in building an intranet may not be justifiable.
You've invested time and money into the design and implementation of your intranet site. To be sure that you get the most value possible out of your intranet site, here are a few things to keep in mind.
Define the Problem Your Intranet Site Will Solve
An intranet site has a huge potential to streamline your business functions. But do you know what business functions you want to streamline? Once you have identified the problem your intranet site is designed to solve, then you can investigate what intranet software will solve that problem best.
The design of your online intranet's home page plays a major role in both the adoption and use of your online intranet by your intended users. You have a long list of issues to consider when building and managing your intranet, just make sure that you pay the proper level of attention to your home page design.
What makes for an effective intranet home page is highly subjective. Some users will prefer a visually attractive home page. Other users will focus on the practicality of the home page and the ease of navigation. Whether you are in the planning stages of your online intranet or you are looking to give it a makeover, here are a few tips to help you with your home page design.
What if you could take the interactive flexibility of the World Wide Web and harness its awesome power for your business?
Sure. It sounds great. But is it possible? And if it’s possible, is it practical for your small business?
The answer to both questions is yes! Having your own small business intranet is possible and practical. But more importantly, it’s essential.
Here are 5 reasons why you need a small business intranet.
1. Enhanced Internal Communication & Coordination
If you are still using email to communicate with your staff, you understand just how difficult it can be to communicate a clear and consistent message to more than one person. Don’t even try to get everyone you’ve CC’d or BCC’d to come to any kind of consensus or your head might explode.
