Hosted Intranet

Save time and money with our fully featured hosted intranet 

About

We designed our hosted intranet to meet the needs of UK Government organisations. Compliant with all the requirements for accessibility and security. Our solution contains advanced content management features typical of any enterprise CMS. 

With a drag and drop layout, editing is simple, and it is mobile responsive. Our solution offers many elements as standard. Such as a personalised homepage, publications, RSS feeds, news and events. But our team can also personalise the workflow if required. 

Benefits

Built in Drupal
Built in Drupal 7 our Intranet solution contains functional modules and front-end themes. Deploy your intranet in under 10 minutes thanks to its pre-packaged installer.

Drupal is open source, making it a scalable and flexible solution. Installation can be managed by your internal team or your choice of external vendor. Extend your intranets functionality with additional modules. Develop custom modules for specific requirements or use pre-configured Drupal modules.
 

WCAG 2.0 Level AA
We designed and developed our Hosted Intranet to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Using both WCAG 2.0 Level A (31st December 2012) and WCAG 2.0 AA (31st December 2014) standards.

Our Hosted Intranet has been independently audited for WCAG 2.0 AA compliance. Please note that accessibility compliance is an on-going progress. Our WCAG 2.0AA compliance does not take into account future changes to configuration or content. Learn more about our Accessibility Services.
 

Sophisticated workflow
Create customised workflows and built-in permissions to manage who has access to create and amend content. Your chosen users can moderate, review, publish and un-publish content. They can also tailor settings for 7 distinct content types.

For peace of mind, all previous versions of a page are retained and can be reinstated if required. Schedule page content to publish or un-publish on dates in the future. A feature especially useful for time sensitive messaging.
 

Responsive mobile device display
Our Hosted Intranet works out-of-the-box on desktop, tablet and mobile platforms. There's no need to create and update distinct versions. The base themes for customising your site are responsive design ready. Automatically implementing best practice in responsive mobile design.
 

Pre-populated sample content
Need help in the setup of your Hosted Intranet site? You have the option to install example content that mimics how a full intranet site should look. Replace the example content with your own to keep the structure. Or remove it completely and publish your own content.
