If you’re interested in increasing communications within your business, simplifying the collaboration process, and improving productivity, you might want to consider taking advantage of an intranet.

Both large and small businesses can successfully utilize intranets and reap the benefits they have to offer. If you have access to computers and the internet, intranets are a cost-effective way to increase your bottom line, streamline processes, organize important documents, and manage projects from anywhere in the world.  

So, what exactly is an intranet? In the digital world, we have both extranets and intranets, both of which are online portals, but they have different functions.


A company website is basically the face of your business. This is where your customers and the world at large come to learn about your services or products. The best way to make a great first impression is to have a well-designed site that is responsive, easy to navigate, and visually appealing. A traditional website allows you to communicate who you are and what you’re about, and through a mixture of quality content, images, and video, you can turn potential customers into loyal clients.


The purpose of an extranet is to provide a space for your business to connect with people outside of your company such as customers, vendors, or business partners. These portals are secure and offer a clear line of communication, allowing your business to nurture important relationships and share freely share documents and information.   


Intranets provide a safe and secure space that is only accessible by people within your business. This is the ideal platform to manage information, communicate with employees, collaborate, oversee ongoing projects, and perform HR functions. Whether all of your employees work in the same building or you have a remote team, intranets are located on a private web server where everyone within a single company can access and share information.

The Benefits Of Intranets

Intranets have numerous benefits for businesses of all sizes. Some of the biggest advantages of using an intranet for your company are:

  • Information and document management
  • Improved communication
  • Project management
  • Human resource management
  • Calendar management
  • Remote work capabilities
  • Virtual meetings

  • Increased and simplified collaboration

Using the right intranet platform can greatly benefit your business. Whether you want to increase productivity and make it easier for employees to collaborate on projects or your company has sensitive documents that need to be shared in a secured location, you won’t be disappointed in the results you see from setting up an intranet for your business.
