Antares deploys intranet for a global financial services company that is both robust and can scale in line with evolving needs.

The Challenge

A Global Financial Services Company trusted SharePoint partner and has recently deployed their new SharePoint intranet, ‘Reconnect’. The Company engaged Antares to architect and build their new corporate intranet. Upgrading from Vignette, SharePoint 2010 was decided as the platform of choice on which to build an environment where the entire organisation could send messages and notifications from the CEO right down to the staff base. Documents could be easily discovered and collaborated on, with corporate events being easily distributed to all staff.

Specialist attention was paid to theming the site to ensure it did not ‘look like SharePoint’ despite having the underlying scalable and robust framework. Antares developed a range of custom styled web parts to ensure The Company’s business requirements were met through a well-designed, functional interface.

The Solution

Antares were also engaged in migrating pages and content over from the old system ensuring important metadata was retained. Templated team sites were built to make sure that the different departments could collaborate ideas and documents with each other in different locations.Reconnect has been received well across The Company’s business units: it is currently used by approximately 2000 staff members; designed to be robust; and scale in line with the growing needs of the business.
