Intranet Design & Development
The advent of ‘the cloud’ and CMSs┬áhave made many Intranets redundant – but there is a place for specialised Intranets where bandwidth, security or browser technologies demand it. A typical bespoke Intranet development project for E-creation revolves HR issues or CD-ROM engineering.
Intranet development case studies
Harcourt Education Intranet
The Intranet enable resources around the world to engineer content. Key to the success of the project was a non-technical interface that could be used by illustrators, authors, project managers ΓÇô in fact, anyone involved in the project. Built using a combination of HTML, .NET, Flash and XML, authors are able to build and instantly test individual activities & games over the Internet.
3com Sales Information Intranet
A bespoke Intranet designed in Flash, providing a branded, learning experience with customer requirements analysis & linked documentation management.┬áUnusually, for an Intranet, it runs using ┬áFlash.
For a technology company like 3com, things move at a fast pace ΓÇô and their marketing materials needed to reflect changes as they occur. By managing product specification sheets via the Internet, the Flash presentation is able to pull in the very latest information over the without the need for updates to the Flash file itself ΓÇô enabling the CD-ROMs already in the market to dynamically ΓÇÿread and updateΓÇÖ themselves.

Slough Borough Council Intranet
For the SloughForYOUth.com website, E-creation built a complex Intranet that allows both contribution by the public, with an approval system, and content management by the council itself. A key element of the Intranet was integration into the government’s activities portal which required reporting back on activity uptake by the community.
Cap Gemini Ernst & Young PR Intranet
The Intranet enables the PR agency to manage all information relating to their clients, including press release, proposals, progress reports and to log hours against the client to automate the invoicing process.
Rouse and Co Accountants Intranet
A key communication goal for the Intranet was to improve the ‘personal’ touch of the business. To achieve this in an interactive and engaging way, we built an interactive ΓÇÿappointmentΓÇÖ request form for the homepage that recognizes visitors when they return. Site visitors are asked what drink they would like in the appointment and upon their return to the site, the visitorΓÇÖs drink is visible on the page along with a personalized welcome message in preparation for their meeting. The Intranet manages all the appointments and sends receptionists e-mails each morning with a list of who is coming in for an appointment and what their selected beverage is, so it can be prepared 2 minutes before the client arrives.
