Intranets can help employees quickly find and view information and applications relevant to their roles and responsibilities. By using a simple web browser interface, users can access data held in any database the organization wants to make available, anytime and - subject to security provisions - from anywhere, increasing employees' ability to perform their jobs faster, more accurately, and with confidence that they have the right information.
With intranets, organizations can make more information available to employees on a pull basis. Employees can link to relevant information at a time that suits them rather than being deluged indiscriminately by emails.
Intranets can serve as powerful tools for communication within an organization, vertically and horizontally.
