Need to implement the best intranet but don’t know where to start?

Thankfully, it’s not as hard as it sounds. All you need is a list of the problems you’d like to solve by launching your employee intranet and you’ll be up and running in no time.

You’ll also find your staff are much more responsive, engaged, and productive because they’re working so much more efficiently.

We’ve helped many businesses like yours to ensure intranet implementation is smooth.

Collaboration is key so name your project team and get them to map out what you’d like from your intranet site.

Read on to discover some tips to help get your planning started:

1.Identify why you need an intranet website

There will be many annoyances you’re hoping to quash by having the best intranet available.

Perhaps your internal communications aren’t up to scratch or you need a better way for people to share ideas?

Make sure everyone knows what’s happening

If you want people inside your organisation to know instantly what’s going on, whether it’s company news, events, reports or announcements, an intranet like Attollo allows you to do this. Your staff can share their ideas in real time.

You want files to be organised

Want to know exactly where all your files are? Want your staff to know too? An intranet will help you manage, create, and distribute the most important knowledge when it’s needed and be instantly accessible to all your workforce, no matter where they are in the world.

Engage and connect employees

If you want your staff to communicate with each other, having a SharePoint intranet portal is a great idea. It’s a place where people can work together, share ideas, ask questions, get feedback and work on tasks together. Attollo brings it all under one roof.

2. Plan engaging content

 If content is useful it’ll be used all the time. And if you have a modern-day intranet it’s a good space to allow that content to flourish, keeping staff engaged with relevant information that they can easily access.

This content might include:

  • Training videos
  • Company policies
  • Newsletters
  • Social events
  • Benefits or incentives
  • Promotions
  • Jobs board

3. Create your bespoke intranet design

If you want simple functions for your business or you’re just starting out, you may just want to use our default templates for basic customising. 

But if you have an eye for a more advanced design, there are loads of possibilities. For business functionality, Attollo is constantly evolving with updates, templates, and page layouts. And because Attollo is built on SharePoint, users have total flexibility to implement what they need for their business.

The key is to find an intranet design that matches your business and suits your branding.

4. Decide on the functions you want

Our experts can offer you a demo to show you exactly what we can offer when implementing your intranet. It may be that you don’t need every function at first, so you’re free to choose which would be best. But use the content you chose in step 2 to help you decide on the features you’d like to use. 

Attollo lets you design your own pages so that you can have a bespoke system for your business.

But best of all, we let you extend your intranet whenever you wish if you want to design and develop further.
