My latest client intranet project to come to fruition is Kewnet, the intranet for the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
I’ve been following the progress of Devon County Council’s new intranet build and was pleased to hear news that the beta version was launching.
Last week, we held a breakfast meeting for our intranet clients from government departments and agencies, councils and charities. The breakfast meeting was an ideal opportunity to compare and contrast how they use the GovIntranet theme and to share ideas and experiences.
It’s interesting to hear that the digital team at the Ministry of Justice have developed a new staff directory. I know a few departments are already opting to use this service and it will be interesting to follow progress.
I recently posted my comparison of search results across 2 similar intranets. In this post, I use the same set of 21 search phrases to test the GovIntranet predictive search feature on the recently released Northern Ireland Office intranet. Some of the search tasks are not really applicable to this department but I have included them for completeness.
