Winner of the Intra.NET award 2017 in the category ‘User Experience Design & Content Management’ was Norsk Hydro with their ‘Intranet simplification project’. Norsk Hydro achieved an overall improvement of their intranet, making it an up-to-date, modern digital platform for their managers and employees. The intranet is their main global internal communication channel, where managers and employees can access and share information, provide guidance and direction, and where the company can deploy business systems across staff and business areas, including business area specific systems, corporate directives and guidelines, steering documents and procedures.
The award in the third category ‘Innovative Technology Integration’ was won by the Anthony Veder Group with their project ‘The Bridge’. Their ‘Work Smarter’ program made it easier for employees to set priorities and enabled easy access to information from all locations and therefore improved communication significantly. They were able to save 33 minutes per employee per day, which translates into 350.000 Euro savings per year. The Bridge presents the status ‘as is’, helping to focus discussions on outcome rather than on who has the right information.
In addition to the three categories, we.CONECT also launched a new category ‘Special Jury award’, which was won by Pandora with their project ‘Infora’. Based on the jury’s feedback they received outstanding scores in all three categories and therefore deserved a special recognition. They created a cohesive solution, bringing together various tools into a single, seamless platform that’s accessible on any device for all employees worldwide. With the launch of Infora, PANDORA has moved towards their ultimate goal of global connectivity through a united and seamless platform.
