Breaking Intranet Barrier:
Improve Communication with SharePoint Online.

Creating an intuitive and a positive user experience is essential for the success of an organisation’s intranet. Over the years, SOCO’s Intranet Discovery and Design engagement has supported hundreds of organisations across Australia, in both government and corporate sector, ensure that the interface of their intranet is user-friendly and meets the needs of diverse users. By leveraging our 4D methodology, we helped organisations geared towards enhancing the overall user experience and effectiveness of their SharePoint Online intranet.

SOCO’s Intranet Discovery workshops are all about pinpointing exactly what your intranet needs. Our objective is to create an environment where the Discovery phase is not just a checkbox but a collaborative and iterative process. A phase that allows us to produce an intranet requirements document that reflects a mutual agreement between you and SOCO, ensuring that your intranet solution is not only aligned with your expectations but exceeds them.

While the core intranet workshops provide a solid base, we’re not rigid – additional workshops can be identified during the kick-off session and throughout other Discovery workshops. We’re open to running core workshops multiple times with different stakeholder groups, and we’re keen on identifying additional workshops for specific priority areas of your intranet, such as a focused session on Viva Connections if that’s on your radar.

The Design phase of your intranet journey is a crucial stage that kicks off once you’ve given the green light to the identified intranet requirements. It extends until we present the Intranet Solution Design to you in a dedicated Design validation workshop. This workshop serves as a collaborative space where our SharePoint Online specialists delve into the intricacies of the intranet design. Our primary goal is to establish a shared understanding of success between SOCO and you, the client.

We take this opportunity to address any questions you may have about the design, gather valuable feedback, and make necessary updates to ensure alignment with your vision. This interactive process plays a pivotal role in refining the design before we provide you with the delivery estimates and proposals. Ultimately, the Design phase is about crafting an intranet solution that not only meets but exceeds your expectations, ensuring a successful and tailored outcome for your organisation.

What’s included in your Intranet Discover & Design engagement?

Our SharePoint Intranet Specialists are dedicated to delivering an intranet solution that not only highlights our expertise but also paves the way for a smooth intranet rollout. At SOCO, we lean towards using out-of-the-box features to keep things streamlined and cost-effective. Customisation is possible, but we recommend only for those crucial ‘must-have’ features that can’t be covered by standard functions—an occurrence that’s rare with today’s advanced technology. To give you a clearer picture, please check out the list below. It outlines the activities which will be covered in your Intranet Discovery and Design engagement, ensuring a tailored approach that’s both efficient and effective for your unique needs.

Bamser

The collaboration transformation made possible by SOCO’s Intranet Discover & Design framework.

Bamser’s team, consisting of project development, procurement, and delivery advisors, offers frontline advisory services for intricate tunneling, trenchless, and infrastructure projects globally. Seeking a revamp of their existing intranet, they turned to SOCO to transition it from one technology platform to SharePoint Online.

Using SOCO’s established Discover. Design. Deliver. Drive.® methodology, we crafted a sleek and contemporary SharePoint Online solution for Bamser. This transformation not only enhanced collaboration within and outside the organization but also elevated the capabilities of Bamser’s personnel through improved document management, onboarding, and training experiences. In a survey, staff provided enthusiastic feedback, endorsing the new technology for creating a better operating environment and enhancing project and client outcomes.

This success was made possible by the initial Intranet Discover and Design engagement, ensuring our comprehensive understanding of Bamser’s unique requirements before development and delivery. (Read more about Bamser’s project)
