social intranet

intergator as social intranet

In the digital age, efficient and targeted communication is becoming increasingly important. Countless pieces of information storm us every day, demanding our attention and a constant evaluation of the data. Countless strategies for the optimal processing of the information flow should support us in the separation of essential from non-essential content. Companies and organizations often use special systems for targeted information that show all relevant information at a glance. The Social Intranet is the modern variant that focuses more on cooperation and individual information needs. Unlike previous intranet solutions, social intranets can be adapted more easily and adapted to user needs.

Customized dashboards for optimal information

The dynamic intranet

While intranet solutions have so far been developed by a few for many, this paradigm is just the opposite. Systems are becoming more user-friendly, new technologies are simplifying the maintenance of content, and learning programming languages is hardly necessary to establish a modern intranet. In addition, the burden of keeping the intranet up to date is spread over many shoulders and a collaborative solution for active communication is gradually emerging.

All information in one place

The major challenge of intranet solutions is to provide data that goes beyond the intranet system. Documents and information are often scattered across many locations within an organization. Customer data in databases, e-mails, special applications such as ERP or CRM systems – there are fragments everywhere that can be difficult to collect.

In this scenario, intergator proves to be an integrating solution, since all data is available at a “Single Point of Information Access” and can be retrieved within a social intranet. Users can start searches at a central location and bundle information in a clear and individually configurable dashboard.

Elements of the social intranet

The following elements make the intergator a fully-fledged social intranet.

Social dashboard

Individual dashboards can be created with the intergator via drag & drop. The possibilities range from user-specific, topic-oriented to cross-departmental scenarios. Documents, RSS feeds, appointments, e-mails or saved searches can be dynamically integrated via adaptable apps. Depending on the settings, the content is updated cyclically and thus enables continuous up-to-dateness.

A cross-departmental search

As an enterprise search, intergator offers an enterprise-wide search that provides all the information of an organization or a company on a central web interface. More than 100 (mostly) free connectors connect different systems and index the information they contain. Users no longer waste time with tedious research in different applications, but search efficiently on a comprehensive information platform.


Collaboration and sharing

Numerous integrated functions make it easy to share search hits and information. For example, you can:

  • tags are attached to hits
  • hits are favored and can either be picked up again for later searches, shared or used as an element of the social dashboard
  • hits are commented on and thus evaluated

Use Case: Onboarding as part of the social intranet

Especially large organizations with natural fluctuations within the workforce or educational institutions need up-to-date overviews in order to make training and onboarding as easy as possible for new employees. Independent of the individual social dashboards of the users, departments or staff units such as the human resources department can create and maintain separate dashboards with the essential information. Here the user automatically and efficiently receives all essential contact persons and information about the company and its tasks.
