We are delighted to have created a new intranet to help The Ferguson Group with their global communications.
Ferguson is a worldwide group of companies servicing the oil and gas industry. With seven operating companies in four divisions located in nine offices across four continents, communication with its 160 employees can be challenging to say the least. That’s why the marketing team asked us how they could share information easily and quickly between all the different parts of the business.
Using SharePoint as the base, we designed a bespoke social information hub where employees from any part of the world, at any time of day, in any timezone, can access the latest company news. The portal integrates with their LinkedIn account and includes reports on its corporate social responsibility strategy, including charity donations, to make it the one central page for team members to keep up to date with the company’s activities.
We believe that SharePoint is an ideal platform for this type of project, because of its inbuilt file sharing and the ability to integrate it with other applications. We have made the Ferguson Group’s intranet easy to use and consistent with the company’s corporate branding and corporate goals.
Hayley Yule, Group Marketing Manager at Ferguson Group said, “We have been delighted by the way the new portal has been received by our staff across the world. It is now much easier to keep everyone informed about the developments in each division through one very simple to use page.”
