Moorabool Council engaged SXiQ, one of Australia’s leading providers of Digital Employee Experience and Microsoft Office 365 implementations, to rapidly implement an Intelligent Intranet. SXiQ facilitated a design thinking workshop and the subsequent Intelligent Intranet implementation within a 3.5-week time frame.
This solution enabled the council to have a solid foundation to provide a centralised source of truth for all organisational digital resources. The solution is implemented on top of a Microsoft Office 365 platform, enabling continual security updates, new features and functionality, plus future proofing with new technology from Microsoft Office, Azure and LiveTiles.
Rapid implementation of an Intelligent Intranet, leveraging Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint and LiveTiles technology.
The council also investigated the LiveTiles employee communications app Reach with the intention of implementing it while their staff were working from home.
Facilitating remote work
Moorabool Council, in close partnership with SXiQ and LiveTiles, enabled their staff to engage with organisational information, access centralised documentation, and benefit from enhanced corporate communications.
The solution provides easy-to-use site templates that allow users to create brand and security compliant content, quickly.
Moorabool Council met their key objectives of achieving operational efficiencies, becoming digitally enabled, improving compliance, and enhancing the experience of their staff and customers.
Leveraging the power of Microsoft 365, LiveTiles and SXiQ, the Council continues to build out new functionality, leveraging LiveTiles site templates to build new department intranet sites quickly, notably the Animal Pound application.
- Industry leading Intelligent Intranet, beautifully designed.
- Centralised sources of truth for all organisational information, news, policies, and employee information/ interactions.
- Microsoft Cloud enabled platform to enable further capabilities via LiveTiles site templates.
The Reach app worked out well too. It proved to be a great way for staff to keep in touch while working at home. Lalitha said it’s become “second nature” for staff to post and comment on pictures.
“People constantly share posts of what’s happening, a simple thing like a sunrise, or ‘I went for a walk today in my one hour,’” he said.
It’s these simple human connections that make remote working so much nicer, bringing back some of the great “watercooler” culture the staff at the council enjoy.
