Northern Powergrid wanted their intranet to provide staff with a platform to access key information and resources in one easy to use package.
WHAT WE DID
As Northern Powergrid’s digital partner, they came to us to help them develop this important staff resource.
The new intranet, known as The Grid, has all of usual features you’d expect of an intranet but it also has a raft of non-typical features which have dramatically enhanced Northern Powergrid’s internal comms.
The Grid is not your average intranet, it has transformed internal comms at Northern Powergrid and is at the heart of everything they do.
Many Northern Powergrid staff spend a lot of time in the field relying on mobiles and tablets to work remotely. We used responsive design so that the sites layout adjusts according to the device. Serving internal company information to mobile devices presented challenges in terms of security a so we ensured that the mobile app was locked to the specific IMEI number of each staff members mobile device.
The Grid goes beyond your average intranet providing not just standard information but custom interactive elements too, these include:
- A section that allows senior managers to communicate how the business is performing against key metrics like safety and call waiting times, all critical to success in a heavily regulated industry.
- The ability for the exec to host multimedia briefings and addresses to staff
- A bespoke e-document approval system that allows documents to be approved and signed digitally.
- A custom jobs board and an interactive staff suggestion board
WHAT WE ACHIEVED
