Integrify As Your Intranet?
By Mike Raia | Published October 24, 2022
Integrify is not an Intranet system by design. However, it's possible to build a light intranet using dashboards and widgets, especially if your intranet needs are action-oriented rather than content storage oriented.
Depending on your needs, Integrify can be a replacement for or a supplement to an existing intranet. At a minimum, Integrify's dashboards can act as a front end for any company or department processes.
Why Do You Need an Intranet?
Let's take a step back and think about why you might need an Intranet in the first place.
- Better Communication and Morale: Provide updates, share critical documentation, and recognize employees.
- Collaboration: A centralized, 24X7 available-from-anywhere place to work together on projects and daily work.
- Improved Productivity: Reduce confusion and wasted time searching, emailing, and managing tasks.
- Standardization and Compliance: Centralize policies and procedures, and provide streamlined, consistent processes.
- Security: Reduce the need for decentralized sharing of potentially risky information.
As more employees switch to remote or hybrid work, a central, digital place for work becomes more and more critical.
