As a ready-to-run intranet solution that’s easy to customize and use, the LiveTiles Intranet Solution was able to support Widex in setting up a healthcare enterprise intranet based on Office 365 in a very short time. More than 2000 users access the intranet from single-user PCs, while staff at production units reach the corporate portal from shared computers.
The fact that the LiveTiles Intranet solution is delivered as an add on to the cloud based Office 365, eliminated the challenge of sales companies and headquarter not sharing network.
As the LiveTiles Intranet solution is fully customizable, Widex has been able to custom build on top of the solution to match Widex’ precise set up.
Consequently, each aspect of the solution was delivered in accordance with Widex’ vision of a unifying platform that supports global communication and collaboration.
As the most immediate need for Widex was a communication channel to reach staff, news occupy a central part of the intranet. The news module organizes news and information distribution through a channel based system that enables the distribution of news to selected groups of users. This means that corporate news are distributed to all staff, while country specific news are only made available to relevant groups of employees.
The module offers editors as well as staff an intuitive experience that makes writing, commenting and reading news easy for everyone in the organization.
While all Widex’ employees share a common intranet platform and enter the intranet from the same home page, sales companies are offered their own local sub sites. These sub sites supply a perfect framework to share information, resources, processes and tools specific to the sales company in question.
In addition, departments, project teams and communities are offered workspaces to facilitate collaboration and project management.
On the intranet home page, Widex’ CEO has his own blog where he keeps staff updated. Creating awareness of Widex’ common goals and direction throughout the entire organization.
The news module’s social features create a vibrant intranet with the option of commenting on and liking news.
