An intranet is a useful tool in any industry, not just in publishing, although publishing companies will find it beneficial.
An intranet will help a company to communicate with its employees and it can be used for all manner of things. Training materials can be posted on there for easy access, announcements and updates can be added and for large companies, employees can find out what is happening in other parts of the business.
What is an intranet?
It sounds as though an intranet is simply a web page. In many ways it is but there are some differences. One intranet definition is that it is a private network available only to staff. It becomes a central hub where staff can access everything that they need. Employers using an intranet save themselves a lot of time and effort – no email updates to staff are required and the intranet can provide staff with the links they need to HR and payroll systems.
Even small publishing houses will be able to make use of a system like this. Industry news and updates can be provided through this system, allowing staff to make a note of the latest book releases and events.
