I’ve just read an interesting blog post by Oxford City Council, sharing their experience of building a new intranet CMS using GovIntranet, and highlighting the importance of content on an intranet.
I’ve been working with Nesta to put a new intranet in place. It’s been a smooth project, delivered on time and ticking all the requirements boxes.
But I’ve written enough blog posts showing how organisations are saving money by deploying GovIntranet. This time, I thought I’d share some of the aspects that we at Agento have learned running a project as a small business.
I’ve been working on some fundamental changes to the GovIntranet WordPress theme and plugins in preparation for moving to version 5.0.
The Forestry Commission and associated organisations used a bespoke content management system for their intranet and it was due to drop out of support early in 2019. The search for a new intranet platform was on, and I first heard from the Forestry project team towards the end of 2016 when they were exploring options.
It started, as many new GovIntranet features do, with an idea from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. The internal communications team wanted a way for staff to post recognition and praise for other members of staff on the intranet.
