With the creation of Biztranet.com, I’ve been doing more research into Intranets including their impact on businesses, adoption among small businesses, and overall awareness. I was surprised to find that among small businesses, Intranets are still unknown.
If you have worked at a company that has more than 100 employees, there is a good chance that you have used an intranet. It can go by many names including: portal, intranet, extranet, internal website, and also creative names that are only relevant within the company walls.
The benefits of an Intranet are much needed, especially at the small business level to decrease confusion, increase collaboration, and improve overall capture of knowledge. One user of intranet software cited that they saw a reduction of email sending by 40% because of their Intranet. This is because it acts as a central repository for information.
My main goal when creating Biztranet was to be able to offer a hosted Intranet service to small businesses that was affordable, but still very powerful. Now I don’t do plugs on my blog that often, but if you go to http://www.biztranet.com and fill out the contact us form at the bottom of the page, mention this blog post and I’ll give you a 20% discount off any of the plans (monthly or annually). This offer is only valid until June 15th 2011.
Spread the word and increase awareness of Intranets. They can help you save time and money.
