The Council of Oulu Region is a regional political authority, responsible for the development of, and representation of interests in the county. It is responsible for regional planning and general coordination of regional development programs related to national and EU structural funds. The Council oversees the interests of the people, municipalities, organizations and enterprises and speaks on their behalf regarding both national and international issues.

Requirements

Communication plays a central role in the Oulu region – not for nothing is the regional development plan entitled “Oulu Region – The region of co-operative partnerships”! So it was the regional council’s wish to strengthen internal communication. In the past, there were too many different communication channels within the administration, and information such as documents and forms were sometimes hard to find. Also the old intranet tool was extremely difficult to use.

Solution

A web-based employee portal was created using the Intrexx-software by United Planet. The portal contains different portlets which provide straightforward access to news, events and also common documents in the Windows network. With the new social intranet platform Intrexx Share, employees, can maintain an open discussion, create notes, answer colleagues’ questions and thus develop knowledge that is of benefit to the whole regional council. This shared wisdom enables the regional council to bring the county forward. Not only was internal communication made easier with Intrexx but also coordination with partners and corporations. A custom built project application which is included in the extranet-portal – also realized with Intrexx – enables the interchange of news, documents and project tasks between the administration and their partners. The council made a significant step for further regional development by choosing a modern and easy way to improve communication.
