Intranet / Extranet Development

We assists organizations in designing, developing, and reorganizing corporate intranets and extranets. Our intranet/extranet services include strategic consultation, conceptualization, planning, programming, training, and deployment.

Effectively deploying an intranet or extranet requires careful planning and collaboration between the key members within your organization, the users of the system, and the development team. We facilitate this planning through strategic consultation.

We will assist your organization in:

  • Clearly defining the goals of the project
  • Surveying the needs of employees, customers, and users
  • Outlining and prioritizing possible solutions
  • Establishing measurable criteria for success
  • Beyond the consultation, the development team creates the infrastructure that will allow you to deliver your sensitive business information quickly and safely. By implementing the right solution, your organization will turn the Internet into a responsive communication channel for your employees, your clients, and your partners.

What is the Difference between an Intranet and an Extranet?

Intranet

A Web site used within the internal network of the company. Corporate intranets can facilitate communication and efficiency in the areas of sales, marketing, service, training, human resources, filing, administration, and corporate culture building. It may include message boards, mechanisms to share documentation, schedules/calendars. Also a password-protected custom application that allows specific areas of your website to be restricted to only those who have been granted access.

Extranet

Similar to a corporate intranet, except an extranet allows for some external access. Extranets are often business-to-business communication tools that allow for an organization to share information with clients, customers, vendors, distributors, and partners. An order processing system can be an example of an extranet. Also a password-protected custom application that allows specific areas of your website to be restricted to only those who have been granted access.

Companies can use an extranet to

Exchange large volumes of data using Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Share product catalogs exclusively with wholesalers or those 'in the trade' Collaborate with other companies on joint development efforts Jointly develop and use training programs with other companies rovide or access services provided by one company to a group of other companies, such as an online banking application managed by one company on behalf of affiliated banks Share news of common interest exclusively with partner companies

Both are used to improve business communication and information exchange for quicker turnaround time, decreased paper flow, increased productivity, and reduced costs.
