What is an intranet?
An intranet can be thought of as a private or internal facing website. Alongside storing files (in a document management system configuration), an intranet can be used as a central location for all information relating to business operations, whether that’s HR policies or worker shift patterns.
Similar to a website, an intranet can be configured to publish news, updates or information that staff may need to be aware of, but that may not necessarily need to be public knowledge.
An intranet can therefore be a key way of communicating within an organisation and a pivotal solution for demonstrating both company culture and wider values beyond work matters
Intranets for internal communication
Intranets are an effective tool for communicating internal information across a company, particularly if the workforce is spread across multiple locations. The intranet can be the location for key company announcements, policies, and employee notices, displayed in a variety of formats (news page, links, images and videos). They can also be the home of workplace calendars and resource scheduling tool. As an intranet is often used multiple times a day, they are useful tools for engaging with staff (unlike an email which can be missed).
Intranets for document sharing
An intranet is also where resources from across the business are pooled for staff to use. By sharing files and documents an organisation can reduce duplication of effort and standardise output. This can also lead to efficiency gains.
As a file management solution, a Microsoft SharePoint intranet can also support collaborative working on documents, allowing employees to edit files simultaneously. This saves time and reduces the chance of multiple versions of documents being created.

We develop intranets in both SharePoint Online and On-Premises to meet organisations’ specific requirements.
Through scoping and stakeholder engagement, we’ll determine exactly what your organisation needs to achieve with your intranet and provide suggestions as to the best way to achieve them.
Once agreed, we’ll then design and deliver your solution either upfront or in phases as per your requirements. This includes establishing access permissions for users, ensuring that staff can only access files and information relevant to their position.
Secured with Microsoft’s security, we can additionally protect access to your intranet with multi-factor authentication.
As a Microsoft Tier One partner, Akita can also provide any licences required for your SharePoint intranet. Equally, we can advise where your Office 365 and Microsoft 365 licences can give you access to a SharePoint intranet already.
