Don't make finding content in your Intranet an Easter Egg hunt!

While we might find the thrill of the hunt exciting on the one Easter weekend every year, it definitely doesn't drive the same enthusiasm in the work place.

Don't make finding content in your Intranet an Easter Egg hunt!

As we all know this weekend is Easter, and hopefully most of us will be able to spend a little bit of time relaxing and spending time with friends and family. One of the most 'eggciting' (poor pun I know) Easter traditions has to be the Easter Egg hunt. Everyone gathered in one place finding hidden eggs throughout the home or garden. It's great fun, and even more so if you have a sweet tooth!

However, while we might find the thrill of the hunt exciting on the one Easter weekend every year, it definitely doesn't drive the same enthusiasm in the work place.

In the modern enterprise it is estimated that 19% of working hours are wasted searching for the knowledge people need to get their job done. If we put that into perspective that is almost a whole day per week spent searching, and it is statistics like this that point to the necessity to provide employees with powerful enterprise search functionality within digital solutions.

Take a SharePoint Intranet for instance. Whether you are operating with a SharePoint on-premises or SharePoint Online Intranet solution, you have the power of SharePoint Search at your disposal, which when aligned with a unified corporate taxonomy for effectively tagging Intranet content, is well positioned to deliver staff with quick and easy access to what they need. Aside from the obvious time savings, in the modern enterprise effective enterprise search also adds value by decreasing time to market by supporting faster and better decision making with the best information on hand and reduces duplicated effort as staff can be sure that when they search for content, if it exists they will find it.

Helping your staff to find what they need is essential to organizational effectiveness, so let us help you find the solution that is right for your business.

But above all, have a Happy Easter!
