“What makes this feature unique is that Interact Answers intelligently suggests solutions to the questions asked, using the information already contained within the intranet. It then goes one step further by recommending an expert within the company it believes can help you with that answer.”

Brother Canada Engaging Employees with Intranet Connections Social CMS Intranet

Intranet Connections (www.intranetconnections.com) provider of the popular intranet 2.0 CMS software announces its flagship intranet software has been chosen by Brother Canada to help the company streamline business processes, increase employee productivity and enhance engagement and collaboration. Brother Canada will launch their new intranet with employees across the country this month.

Brother Canada, a branch of the 5 billion dollar company Brother Industries, Ltd offers a wide range of business machines and home appliances known for their affordability, reliability, ease of use, and versatility. These qualities are the cornerstones of Brother Canada’s success and the company felt that their intranet solution should embody these characteristics. Brother also wanted to find an intranet 2.0 communication platform that would allow them to establish a dialogue and encourage employees to participate within the organization. They did not want an intranet that would simply remain an archive of data and be driven from the top-down.

In searching for a new intranet solution, Brother Canada looked at a custom-built solution, open source software and Intranet Connections Intranet 2.0 Software. They focused on Intranet Connections after ruling out a custom solution as too expensive and time-intensive to set up.

“Intranet Connections suited us perfectly. It was an affordable and turnkey intranet solution that allowed us to be up and running with an intranet in a short amount of time. Value for the money combined with out-of-the-box collaborative tools contributed to our purchase decision.” says Vital Adam, Brother Canada’s Public Relations Officer.
