GES - A Division of Viad Corporation - Prepares For The Future with a New Corporate Intranet Site.

The Challenge

GES contracted EvePoint Software to develop, integrate and deploy a new corporate intranet site based on SharePoint 2010. GES wanted to update their current site, which was based on SharePoint 2007. Their current site was lacking a personalized user experience and branding, two capabilities that they were looking to add to the new site. In addition, GES had specific timeline and budget restrictions, which were imperative to the success of the project.

The Solution

The main goal of this project was to make the intranet site more appealing and able to provide the most up-to-date company information to employees as well as drive content contribution.

EvePoint Software built a new SharePoint 2010 corporate intranet site for GES. The new home page now displays the latest company news, company blog posts and company Twitter feeds as well as relevant tools for users to personalize their home page. Users are also now able to submit news sto- ries to be posted on the new home page. EvePoint Software developers designed and built the new SharePoint 2010 intranet site within the expected timeframe and budget.

Mission Accomplished

EvePoint Software successfully met the challenges and delivered an appealing new SharePoint 2010 intranet site on budget and on time. Now GES is experiencing numerous benefits from the launch of its new intranet including increased employee engagement and better information discoverability. GES has better prepared itself for future goals and growth as the largest one-stop provider of exhibition and event services.
