New intranet resulted in total clarity
AVK is a global company with about 3,200 employees and therefore the internal communication plays a crucial role. The then intranet of the group did not give the necessary survey of information and the accessibilities were limited, which complicated the communication with the international employees. AVK Holding A/S chose to leave these challenges to IT Relation’s development department, and they developed a new intranet in co-operation with AVK.
Shared collaboration platform across national borders
"In brief, the new intranet has given us total transparency," says Global Brand Manager Michael Ramlau-Hansen. He describes, how the new intranet has formed a wholly new basis for the communication structure within the company. The intranet has given them a common collaboration platform across their international offices, where all the information and the documents are organised so that all employees can quickly locate them. They can also create various fora to debate issues and share documents, which have made many decision processes easier.
IT Relation acted in a very professional way. They were understanding about our specific needs and based on that knowledge they followed our wishes through.

Search engine matching Google
In addition to the structure, the intranet search engine has also been emphasised. The intranet has a search engine that allows you to do a search on the entire content of the site, and in that way be able to locate a needed document fast. "We've got a search engine which is matching Google," says Michael Ramlau-Hansen.
The creation of the intranet was carried out in a close collaboration between IT Relation’s Development Department and AVK Holding’s Project Leader. "IT Relation acted in a very professional way. They were understanding about our specific needs and based on that knowledge they followed our wishes through," concludes Michael Ramlau-Hansen.
