What Companies Need a Modern Intranet?

First, let’s discuss what a “modern” intranet is. It is an updated and more advanced version of the intranet most people are used to. It should be branded, personalized, and accessible by all employees. Being able to combine all of your tools, software, and content into one harmonious system is what sets modern intranets apart from a standard intranet.

Of course! That’s like asking if your employees need a computer, or a phone, or a cash register. A modern intranet is a staple in a successful business, the unfortunate part is that some companies still haven’t accepted this necessary tool.

Realistically all businesses should use a modern intranet. Let’s take a look at some well-known organizations that have invested in a powerful digital workplace.

Sports Industry: The Boston Red Sox have more than 1,000 employess that they need to support in all different situations. From the marketing team to the concession stands, all employees have access to the same information across any device.

Healthcare Industry: GlaxoSmithKline, GSK, is a pharmaceutical company with 100,000 employees across 150 countries. Having a unified modern intranet allows them to easily connect with all employees in different languages across the globe.
