Intranet Connections: Brother Canada Engaging Employees with Social CMS Intranet

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 7, 2010) - Intranet Connections (www.intranetconnections.com) provider of the popular intranet 2.0 CMS software announces its flagship intranet software has been chosen by Brother Canada to help the company streamline business processes, increase employee productivity and enhance engagement and collaboration. Brother Canada will launch their new intranet with employees across the country this month.

Brother Canada, a branch of the 5 billion dollar company Brother Industries, Ltd. offers a wide range of business machines and home appliances known for their affordability, reliability, ease of use, and versatility. These qualities are the cornerstones of Brother Canada's success and the company felt that their intranet solution should embody these characteristics. Brother also wanted to find an intranet 2.0 communication platform that would allow them to establish a dialogue and encourage employees to participate within the organization. They did not want an intranet that would simply remain an archive of data and be driven from the top-down.

In searching for a new intranet solution, Brother Canada looked at a custom-built solution, open source software and Intranet Connections Intranet 2.0 Software. They focused on Intranet Connections after ruling out a custom solution as too expensive and time-intensive to set up.

"Intranet Connections suited us perfectly. It was an affordable and turnkey intranet solution that allowed us to be up and running with an intranet in a short amount of time. Value for the money combined with out-of-the-box collaborative tools contributed to our purchase decision," says Vital Adam, Brother Canada's Public Relations Officer.

The KISS principle that Intranet Connections adheres to presented Brother Canada with a user experience that made it easy to install, evaluate, and implement the software within two months. The combination of core intranet tools and social collaboration enhances employee productivity and helps employees to connect and share knowledge through the intranet.

Brother Canada will be rolling out their new intranet in July with the goal to encourage employees to express their point of view, contribute suggestions, and collaborate with one another. Blogs, surveys, department sites, tagging of documents and enterprise search will all play key roles in the success of their intranet experience.
