Solution: Intranet

The intranet – the digital business center

From bulletin board to fully connected Digital Workplace

What is an intranet?

Quite simply, an intranet or enterprise portal is a protected website. Only authorized persons have access to this. The most common use is the company intranet. It serves to support the company-internal processes. The employees can access it from their own workstation. With the aid of a virtual private network (VPN), they can also access it from outside of the office. If certain individuals outside of the network have password-protected access, this is referred to as an extranet..

The development of the intranet

Intranet – past and present

Classical intranets are primarily used for the information for employees. The information is often arranged hierarchically. This means that users can read editorial posts but cannot comment on or share them. This can be pictured like a “digital bulletin board”.

Modern enterprise portals can achieve even more than that.

These perform many more functions – beyond the information. This ranges from document management via digitalization from business processes through to the improvement of teamwork using social collaboration.

The Digital Workplace - the workplace of tomorrow

The intranet as a Digital Workplace

A modern intranet gathers all work processes and information together on one platform. It is a user-oriented work environment for the employees.

In this way, they gain from the advantages of digital transformation: simple information exchange and easy access to important functions. All of this without the frustration of switching applications. If required, they can be mobile and accessed from any end device.

At the Digital Workplace, work together like never before in a virtual space. You can share documents and exchange information – across locations and departments.

"Intrexx enabled us to introduce our intranet very quickly. 3 years ago, I didn’t know what an intranet is capable of, today, I program most of the applications myself. And all of this as a biologist without any programming knowledge. I can also implement the smallest suggestions immediately with Intrexx; this guarantees high acceptance."
