What’s it about?

In this special event, we will focus on what makes an intranet successful, and how to achieve high user adoption. The morning will feature a case study on one of our recent customers, Standard Life, and how they drove adoption of their new intranet from its inception to roll-out.

Our intranet solution, Kira, is used by everyone from household names like Tesco Bank and corporations like Cairn Energy, to public sector bodies, SMEs and charities. Built on input from hundreds of communications, technology and marketing professionals, it gives every organisation the opportunity have an enterprise-quality intranet.
