A digital workplace transformation

The Task

In 2017 Cavotec started an internal transformation program. Integral to this transformation was a more flexible and accessible intranet that would improve collaboration. Cavotec had been using SharePoint and couldn't communicate important news efficiently or engage global employees through a single, mobile-responsive platform. We were tasked with building this new intranet using Igloo, with communications as a top priority. 

the strategy

We had needs-analysis sessions with project stakeholders across all areas of the organisation to understand their requirements. These sessions ensured the new intranet would address the objectives of each business unit, and the entire company. 

We developed a unique site structure and CSS design that was tailored to Cavotec's specific needs and brand identity. The solution also included training to take advantage of all the platform's features. 

the challenges

With a long list of issues with Cavotec's SharePoint intranet, the initial planning meetings were extensive. The new intranet had to offer a user-friendly experience on both desktop and mobile, so considerations had to be made around the layout and navigation of the site. Our collaborative planning resulted in a bespoke solution that vastly improved on the previous SharePoint system, and provided an informative and enjoyable experience on a variety of devices. 

the results

Cavotec launched the new Igloo digital workplace, 'CavoNet', to accolades from around the organisation. With a first-rate experience on both desktop and mobile and an emphasis on delivering timely communications within its global team, CavoNet ensures users can find what they need quickly and easily.
