Every construction project has many moving parts. Communifire’s social intranet is a one-stop shop for all of your stakeholders to collaborate on project work and brainstorm through any challenge. Whether you’re coordinating project meetings with building staff and vendors, storing blueprints, or just publishing information to keep everyone on the same page, your Communifire intranet makes it all easier. Communifire is a great place to share training videos, store project portfolios, and review contract documents. Accessible anytime, from anywhere, your team stays connected with Communifire, and work moves forward smoothly.
When everyone is laser-focused on meeting their commitments, keeping track of the bigger business picture can be a challenge. But you can use your intranet software to keep everyone in the loop. Communifire is perfect for making internal communications compelling and irresistible. Publish and socialize important company announcements on your home page so they’re front and center. Have some interesting news to share about non-project-related events within your company? You can put a newsfeed right on the homepage that updates in real time.
In today’s digital workplace, everyone is on the go. Fortunately, so is your Communifire intranet. Whether you’re in the office, on the road, or at a project site, the Communifire mobile app helps mobile and deskless workers stay connected to your team and business. With native apps for iOS and Android, you and your team can access your intranet from any mobile device, whenever—and wherever—you need it.
Construction projects involve a wide range of expertise—and knowing who has the knowledge you need is critical to getting the right answers to important questions quickly. With Communifire’s employee directory and profiles, your team’s expertise is at your fingertips. With a quick search, you can find out who works in a particular area of interest, the workspaces they’re part of, what content they’ve shared, and even what comments they’ve contributed to conversations. Rich employee profiles are like a “virtual introduction” to your team members: they foster collaboration and engagement.
Construction projects aren’t just about putting up buildings—you need to capture and share a lot of information before a shovel ever hits the ground. Communifire’s document storage and file sharing features let you safely store your mission-critical documents all in one place. With version control, you can be sure your team is always dealing with the latest information. Storing files in one centralized hub means that all of your stakeholders can access your blueprints, designs, contracts and other documents at any time, with just a few clicks.
Your projects involve a lot of different stakeholders. Your staff, clients, contractors, and vendors all need to be on the same page. With Communifire’s workspaces feature, they are. You can set up a dedicated digital space for any project and invite only the relevant people to participate. Team members can share information instantly, start conversations, and stay connected. Your projects can move forward smoothly because everyone is in the same (virtual) room.
An intranet is more than just a place to store corporate information—it’s a thriving digital hub for your community. With Communifire intranet software, you can customize your homepage with your own logo and branding to reflect your company’s style and culture. Highlight featured content, add links to your most popular resources, and put the information that matters to you and your team front and center. Turn your intranet into an indispensable tool for your employees and partners—one they’ll use every single day.
Knowledge and information are at the heart of every great business, but you have to be able to find it. Communifire’s contextual search removes that “needle-in-a-haystack” frustration, and lets you get your hands on exactly what you’re looking for in just a few clicks. Whether the information is in a document, an employee profile, a discussion forum, even a group chat, you’ll find it. And because Communifire search is contextualized, you don’t have to worry about wading through irrelevant search results to locate what you need. Smart search yields smart results that help you move your work forward.
Forget the endless back-and-forth over email to schedule meetings: Communifire’s personal and shared calendars let you see everyone’s availability at a glance. Whether it’s a project-focused status meeting with all of your stakeholders, or a company-wide event to celebrate another win, you can quickly find the best time to suit everyone’s busy schedule without asking for a show of hands. Send invitations and set reminders straight from your calendar—and rest assured that any updates will be reflected automatically in everyone’s calendar.
Every construction project has a lot of moving parts. With Communifire’s task management feature, you can break any project down into manageable—and trackable—units. Schedule project phases, assign deliverables, and set reminders for due dates. Drag and drop tasks to order them in the sequence they have to be done, and check them off as they’re completed. Everyone on your team gets their own personal task manager, so they know what they’re responsible for—and what to do next.
Forget about cluttered inboxes and making sure you’re replying to the latest email in a thread. With Communifire’s instant messaging features, you can communicate one-on-one with other team members or chat in a group. The free flow of conversation lets you move your projects forward and fosters collaboration for a better employee experience. Your team can engage with one another on the spot, whether it’s getting answers to questions or brainstorming new ideas. And Communifire chats are searchable, so insights will never get buried again.
You can do more than just publish announcements and share files with Communifire intranet software. Keep your team in the loop on project-related issues and share relevant information about the business with articles and blog posts. Communifire’s rich content-creation features let you expand the way you communicate and share knowledge with your team—and how they share content with each other. Articles provide educational or authoritative content to your audience and are easily consumable from your intranet. You can also use the blog feature for content that’s a little more informal and invites feedback and participation. Compelling content facilitates engagement and discussion and enhances the overall employee experience.
Your intranet is a centralized knowledge base, serving a diverse community whose members all have preferences in what they consume and how they engage. Communifire’s audit and analytics features give you the insight you need to understand how your organization is using your intranet, and the features and content that get the most engagement. Armed with this intel, you can evolve your intranet in a way that’s most suited to your organization and ensure that it remains a thriving digital hub.
Communifire connects our teams and organizes our projects. And with the vast amount of data we have created, the knowledge base provides a resource for new hires and FAQs.
