Effective information management for 2021 and beyond
We specialize in solving information management problems and can bring twenty years of experience and expertise to helping your organisation emerge strongly from the pandemic. Distributed working is difficult enough on a small scale. When organisations have to distribute most of their employees managing their access to information and knowledge becomes business-critical.
How can we find the information and expertise we need?
Employees are facing novel problems. It is not just business as usual from a home location. There may be a requirement to find information that has long been forgotten by the employee but now it is important to find it. Take a look at our information management guidebook. 50 ways to improve the management of information in your organisation without any additional financial investment.
Over the last year we have seen a substantial growth in mergers and venture capital investments, both of which will result in changes to business priorities and the information and expertise that will be essential components of success. We have worked with a number of global organisations that have found it very difficult to integrate information repositories and search applications post a merger. Use our experience to resolve the inevitable challenges.
We can support your search team in enhancing the performance of your search applications. Our SearchCheck assessment can give you a prioritised roadmap for development on the basis of a two-hour conference call with your search team. There is no commitment to use our services to implement the roadmap. Just hand it to your search team.
You do have a search team, don’t you? If not we can help you prepare a list of the skills and experience you need and assist in the evaluation of internal and external candidates.
If you are unsure about what to do next just call us! We will be delighted to talk about your problems and possible solutions. There is no charge for the initial discussion, and no commitment to come back to us for implementation support. We see it as a win-win. We will learn from your situation and you will have confidence from having talked to someone with over 20 years of experience in deliverying search satisfaction for enterprise search, intranet search, website search and B2B e-commerce search. We are members of The Search Network, a global network of independent search specialists. We are large enough to cope with even a global search project but small enough to care and to cherish our reputation for excellence.
We have been working on search and intranet projects since the late 1990s, with Intranet Focus Ltd being established in 1999. Over the last two decades we have undertaken over 100 projects in the UK, the rest of Europe and the USA. We undertake no projects for vendors so that we can provide advice that is independent of any vendor relationship
We are based in the UK but have long-established relationships with consultancies in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, France, Hungary, New Zealand, Singapore, Sweden and the USA.
The client-consultant partnership
We work hard to build effective client-consultant partnerships. Our experience forms the basis of our book entitled Managing Expectations.
Managing enterprise information
In a report published in July 2020 we have set out 50 recommendations on how to achieve good practice in information management, none of which require any additional technology investment to implement.
Book: Intranet Managment Handbook
The first book to offer practical advice on intranet management, based on the work of the author as an intranet consultant over the past fifteen years.
