What has been the impact

According to BellSouth officials, the corporate headquarters intranet has brought cost-savings and increased employee effectiveness in the following areas:
  1. Employees have access to more time-sensitive information faster enhancing the decision-making process.
  2. The intranet has been very inexpensive to administer.
  3. As new applications are created BellSouth has not had to update the user interface.
  4. The intranet has created an atmosphere of excitement. Employees are very curious about the technology and are suggesting new uses.
  5. BellSouth has seen great savings in cutting back on the use of paper to publish information.
  6. The ability to securely access the intranet from a remote site was very useful during the Olympics when BellSouth instituted a telecommuting policy.
