Uniting & Engaging your teams

Good employee engagement unites people, so we’re not just focussed on attracting talent, we want you to retain and nurture it. Using our digital knowhow, creative juice and a love of internal communications we have developed software to help improve internal communications within the corporate environment. This is your central point for knowledge, sharing, recognition and organisation. Bringing employees together whatever their location, providing branded systems that will engage them and creating platforms that are just as enticing for managers.

The whole system will be hosted on an Amazon server dedicated to your business. A safe and secure private network for all your staff that can be accessed anywhere at any time.

The only thing better than our system is when it works well with the others you use. Taking a feed from your HR provider gives us everything we need to create the structure of your intranet site. Each staff member will be allocated to a number of groups – location, role and permissions. Updated every 24 hours this will keep your systems up to date, reminding new employees to login and locking old employees out.


We make it simple for your employees to communicate with each other; for managers to connect, engage and inform; for colleagues to collaborate and feel involved in the organisation, wherever they are. Through private messages, direct messenger, group discussions, posts on the live timeline and so much more; there has never been so many ways to communicate with your colleagues on a shared corporate platform.

Imagine a way to make it easier to share files that need to be seen by all staff – or even just some of them. Our permissions-based document library could reduce your need to send large files over email or hold duplicate documents across the business.

It’s essential that your employee engagement platform can be accessed via mobile, and mirrors the functionality of your site. Our engagement platform comes with a hybrid app so that colleagues can continue to communicate with colleagues, share valuable information and obtain the documents they need wherever they are.

The ability to direct message colleagues outside of the corporate email system is something many companies wish they had. Our messenger tool uses a format familiar to most smartphone users, providing instant connection to colleagues.

See what’s going on in real-time; employees can post content to the rest of the business, keeping colleagues up to date on what’s going in their corporate world. They can use rich multimedia such as imagery and videos to showcase the great work they are doing. Colleagues can like and share.

Employee feedback is key and it doesn’t always have to be about bad news. Use our built-in polls to run quick surveys with your staff, from questions about the latest menu, to upcoming business changes. Easy to use and easy to report, they’re the perfect way to show employees you want to listen.

Make your engagement platform, the place to go for company events. Use the calendars to create, manage and share events, invite specific colleagues or whole teams. Provide at-a-glance calendars for employees to use, wherever they are.

As vital to recruitment as your external jobs feed, an internal job board built into your employee site will provide even more reasons for staff to stay in touch online. Create, promote and share opportunities for existing employees.

We know that many clients would like the option to provide communications in different languages. Talk to us about functionality that allows your engagement site to be multilingual.

Employee engagement platforms are ideal places to store the best pictures and videos about your brand. Provide a managed resource for everyone to use, whilst reminding everyone of how the brand should look and feel.
