The team at Ntegra are celebrating securing a contract with utilities giant Northumbrian Water Group to create a new intranet allowing their 3,000 staff to communicate effectively.
We are thrilled to be chosen to work with the Durham-based organisation for a five-year contract which starts with a full intranet rebuild project.
Andy Langley, CEO said: “We are delighted to be working with Northumbrian Water. They have a truly unique approach to driving innovation and change. We believe their ‘can-do’ culture coupled with our experience of successfully delivering digital transformation will prove to be a recipe for success.
“We will be creating an intranet which is responsive, modern, mobile-friendly and which is personalised, producing and sharing content which is relevant to each staff member.”
Northumbrian Waters’ existing intranet platform is no longer suitable particularly given the challenges of remote working for all employees.
Over the coming months, the Digital team at Ntegra will collaborate closely with the Northumbrian Water team to design and implement the new intranet for the 3,000 strong team which works across multiple sites – 60 per cent are office-based and 40 per cent out ‘in the field’.
The new intranet will be designed to increase employee engagement, communicate their strong and transparent culture, provide excellent knowledge management, encourage teamwork and collaboration, securely share company data and apps as well as allowing the sharing of ideas and feedback.
Louise Hunter, Corporate Affairs Director at Northumbrian Water Group, said: “This is a really exciting time in our Digital journey, and we are pleased to be working with Ntegra. The new Intranet will bring our colleagues closer together as well as support productivity and collaboration right across the business”.
The new intranet will take several months to complete, and it will then be maintained and fine-tuned by the Ntegra team for the next five years.
This is not the first substantial company intranet the team at Ntegra have created. We have also designed and implemented one for the biggest brewing group in the world ABInBev which produces brands including Budweiser and for one of the world’s largest media agencies Dentsu.
