Many of our clients have multiple locations or have employees that work remotely, which can make it difficult for colleagues to share ideas, connect with each other, and tap into existing expertise and insight. They struggle to keep employees connected and fail to harness the power of collaboration. One mechanism that companies are utilizing to cope with these challenges is deploying an Intranet.

Before you can decide if deploying an Intranet site makes sense for your business, it’s important to understand the basics of what an Intranet is and how it works. Wikipedia defines an Intranet as a “private network accessible only to an organization’s staff.” Think of the Intranet as a website which includes information that only employees of your company can view.
