An intuitive, country-wide intranet solution

APR LLP provides their clients with high-quality interim actuarial and technical solutions and is one of the most trusted providers of interim actuarial services in the UK.

They achieve this using their service model, matching their clients' requirements to the most suitable resources available from either their own staff pool or their trusted contractors. 

The Task

APR was using SharePoint (SP) as their document collaboration tool, and they wanted to explore a more intuitive intranet solution that would allow the business to build better internal communications and culture for a growing team of actuaries spread across the UK. We were tasked with creating a flexible, user-friendly intranet for the company using Igloo. 

the strategy

A thorough scoping and needs-analysis process was undertaken, with APR's existing workflows examined. After several sessions, a strategy of content migration from SP to the Igloo intranet was agreed upon.

The need to access a multitude of documents was critical. The solution also had to deliver a non-technical intranet that could be accessed by all APR staff from offices and remote locations. This required powerful search functionality and the ability to break down the complex range of documents into categories with various permissions and restrictions. 

the challenges

The task of transferring over 500 business documents was going to be onerous. We built a bespoke programme that pulled the SP documents, labelled them, and sorted them into the Igloo system. This application saved APR a significant amount of time, ensuring deadlines could be met for the launch of the new intranet. 

the results

The additional functionality and bespoke build elements of the Igloo intranet have proved invaluable to APR. Industry-related articles, polling opinions, and a fantasy football league are all part of the final solution. APR LLP have become one of Igloo's top-performing customers for platform engagement and the business is adding new users/employees regularly.
