The Danish unemployment insurance fund, Magistrenes A-kasse, went live with the Colibo Intranet on May 22, 2018. The organization needed a fast implementation and an effective digital tool for internal communication.
An enganging onboarding experience
MA is a leading example of a forward-thinking company, when it comes to engaging and facilitating onboarding for new users. By creating a simple, good-looking intranet-brochure named ‘Quick guide to MA’s intranet’, employees can get an easy start and quickly learn how the intranet is the primary hub for company information.
The brochure explains selected social and collaborative features including the feed, writing news and posts, using the search engine, filling out the profile and finding colleagues. On some pages, explanations are creatively linked to numbers in a picture for a visual demonstration. Finally, employees can find a list of colleagues to contact if a problem should arise.
The smart ‘Quick guide’-initiative proved very effective in the onboarding-process and faster achievement of common internal communication goals.
Choosing the right intranet supplier
To avoid a larger IT-project and secure a seamless implementation-process, MA wanted the new intranet provided within a short time from the initial dialogue with the partner to the end of implementation.
With an older solution that was no longer supported, there was also an urgent need for a digital platform that could dramatically lift the internal communication in the organization, especially when it comes to streamlining interdisciplinary work and news sharing.
The choice fell on Colibo, a partner who could approach a fast-moving working environment with high flexibility, both in terms of securing a quick implementation and delivering a system tailored to the company's needs.
"In MA, we needed a quick implementation, as our old intranet was partly unsupported and partly lacked a lot of the features we needed for our internal communication. Colibo helped us launch quickly. " – Kristian Kostrup, Head of Communications
