Can a modern intranet lessen the pressure on IT departments?

What can a modern intranet do?

A modern intranet is an organisational hub for employee engagement; a centralised, structured service that unites people, resources, business updates, and more. By connecting teams to their peers, content, and news from any device, any place, and at any time, organisations can improve the efficiency of their collaboration and support more flexible and agile working styles. To find out more about the variety of communication solutions available check out our ‘Unpuzzling the world of communication solutions’ blog.

In this blog we will be focusing on leading modern intranet solution, Valo Intranet, exploring how this tool can reduce the pressure on IT departments. Valo is built on the back of a SharePoint intranet (supporting both Modern and Classic SharePoint) allowing users to take advantage of Microsoft 365’s collaboration tools. However, Valo offers pre-defined templates, intuitive interface and content creation tools, and ease of maintenance. This not only enhances and elevates the SharePoint experience, but also eases the burden on IT teams.

How can this lessen the pressure on IT departments?

Easy to Use

Valo’s easy to use, highly visual content creation tools allow non-technical users to create and build pages and news articles independently using drag and drop modular components.

Easy to Customise

The out-of-the-box nature of Valo makes customised branding a simple affair, achievable without handling code. This alleviates the onus on IT departments to ensure appropriate branding within an intranet. Additionally, with flexible modules, add-ons such as multilingualism, adoption insights, social media integration, and more, can be incorporated without the need for large amounts of development effort from an IT team.

Easy to Integrate

With add-on tools such as Valo Connect and Valo Ideas available, integration of your intranet and Microsoft Teams can be managed simply. Valo Connect allows you to build an enterprise portal inside Microsoft Teams, uniting your vital tools in one place, and can be configured in just a matter of clicks. Valo Ideas allows team to come together to present and co-innovate on new ideas, accessible through Teams and powered by Modern SharePoint.

Easy to Maintain

Valo is available for an upfront cost with no additional expense. However, organisations can obtain a Fresh subscription alongside their Valo Intranet that ensures the intranet is up to date, with the latest features available. This again reduces the need for IT intervention or maintenance. Valo also offer an extranet add on with simple external user management, achievable with only a few clicks.
