Their Challenges

  • Document management adoption
  • Lack of internal communications
  • Knowledge sharing
  • Onboarding different departments
  • No culture of internal communications
  • No single identifiable Digital Workplace

Our solution

Rapid deployment of multiple Attollo Intranet solutions

Student Intranet (Launched due to COVID-19). During unsettling times Attollo Intranet deployed Glasgow School of Art student and staff intranet solutions to keep vital communication channels open with both staff and students from anywhere in the world.

How The Glasgow School of Art benefited from an Attollo Intranet

Quick Deployment

The project was underpinned by the promise of rapid and easy deployment. Attollo Intranet allowed for a streamlined process whereby the The Glasgow School of Art IT department only had to press a button.

Training Strategy

During the on boarding phase of the project we established a key training strategy designed to create good ‘GSOA citizens’. Training a small number of content editors who have now trained over 100 content editors

Growth Capacity

Attollo Intranet has unlimited user capacity so when new students and staff are on boarding there is no increase in monthly licence costs – which is important for the type of organisation they are.

Attollo Intranet enabled instant productivity

If we didn’t achieve the deadline for this, the situation would have been even more difficult that it has been. We have seen a high intake straight away of 40-60% of students using the intranet. An increase of 15-35% of end user adoption which is a huge achievement for The Glasgow School of Art.

We can log into our intranet anywhere, anytime on any device. We are sharing insights and collaborating on documents in real time which adds up to a more effective working system. We have built a good relationship with Attollo Intranet that we don’t feel we would have achieved with another organisation. Attollo Intranet has pulled together our pain points from across the whole organisation and provided an effective solution.
