Intranet Connections has announced the latest release of their intranet 2.0 CMS platform. Intranet Connections version 10 drives the concepts of a collaborative intranet forward by combining the core tools that streamlines business processes with the social collaborative features that encourage employees to connect through the intranet.
Carolyn Douglas, CEO of Intranet Connections, “Our focus is to bring a turnkey intranet to SME’s who do not have the resources to manage and build an intranet with a CMS like SharePoint. We provide a user experience that makes it easy from installation to implementation to on-going maintenance. Version 10 is all about showing how simple it can be for an administrator to manage the software, and for the end-users to interact and engage with their intranet.”
A key collaboration tool is the addition of an intranet chat client. As simple to use as Facebook chat, employees can tap the knowledge of anyone on the intranet. Chat widgets can be created for the intranet home page or department hubs to focus chat opportunities with company support techs, for example, or department reps. The new Employee Hub allows users to centralize and personalize their intranet experience and to interact and connect with the intranet. The hub provides an easy tool for employees to create a widget dashboard that pulls key information relating to their tasks and content throughout the site.
This latest release touches on automated processes that simplify the submission process of online forms within their popular e-Form Builder tool. E-Form Builder allows users to create electronic forms with a point and click interface and offers a robust search and reporting utility on form responses. A highly interactive multi-stage approval workflow process provides depth in functionality but keeps the user experience simple and intuitive on the front end.
Other v10 features include HTML web docs, community sites for departments and project teams, a new Site Designer role, and the ability to generate RSS feeds to consume intranet content through various channels, such as presenting Job Postings from the intranet to your public web site through an RSS feed.
