Greatwell Homes and Attollo build a digital future

Categorised as Attollo Intranet

Greatwell Homes has joined forces with Attollo Intranet to move its rapidly transforming company even further into the digital age.

The housing association were looking for a supplier to provide a comprehensive intranet platform that would allow them to effectively share data and tools across the whole company.

With the company now moving to remote working indefinitely, Greatwell Homes were keen to bring in a new technology that could bring all employees together no matter where they worked and that can also be used on a variety of different devices, meaning staff who are not ‘office-based’ can also access the intranet.

And that’s where Attollo stepped in.

Attollo implemented an out-of-the-box intranet tailored to the company brand and personality, that can be managed by admins in-house. It also includes an effective search engine to make finding information quick and easy for Greatwell Homes employees.

The main reasons for setting up an intranet at Greatwell Homes were to increase services and efficiencies, boost employee satisfaction and provide value for money.

Sophie Rogers, Communications Manager at Greatwell Homes, said: “Our need to increase our employee engagement has become so much more important since we moved to remote working. The way our staff work has changed massively over the last 12 months so now, with our values and missions still at the heart of our work, we had to find a more efficient operating model.

“The team at Attollo has allowed us to do just that and we are delighted with the end result.”

Sam Dolan, Creative Director at Attollo Intranet, said: “We were thrilled to win this contract as we felt we could pinpoint the needs of Greatwell Homes perfectly. Attollo has delivered in its mission to provide the housing provider with a modern intranet that will transport it along with its customers, into the digital age in unprecedented times.

“We have enjoyed seeing the company implement an effective system that empowers every user.”
