The Intranet brings together Web sites owned by departments, divisions, and individuals across the organisation. It may link local and regional offices, and employees of diverse cultures and languages. The strategy for designing a Web site requires an understanding of the context of use, user and organizational requirements, produce design solutions, and evaluation of design solutions against requirements. If this appears similar to product design – it is. Content, design, consistency and maintenance are essential to quality. If done well, the Web site contributes to the corporate Intranet community.
Your client’s internal communications are likely carried out via an intranet, and this often over-looked hub of day-to-day business can be a hidden cost hemorrhage if designed poorly. Yet a well-designed, easy-to-use intranet can dramatically increase the efficiency of internal procedures, improve morale, and save your clients some cold, hard cash.
