1. Easy To Set Up
Top of most customers’ list of requirements is that the intranet should be easy to set up. Many customers deploy an intranet in response to a real organizational pain point, such as improving internal communications or enhancing employee engagement. And so, you will want to be reaping the rewards an intranet has to offer as soon as possible.
Why waste valuable time and resources on setting up a complicated intranet when you can deploy MyHub’s intuitive solution in just a matter of minutes?

2. Easy To Use
It almost goes without saying that your intranet needs to be easy to use. If not, then staff will quickly dump the intranet in the too hard basket. However, don’t confuse ease of use with limited functionality. MyHub’s intranet successfully combines ease of use with a wide range of business modules and tools.
A tried and tested design alongside intuitive site navigation ensures that users can quickly and easily find their way around our intranet without the need for extensive training or ongoing support.
3. Easy To Manage
And once your site is live, you’ll find the MyHub intranet a breeze to manage on an ongoing basis both in terms of organizing users and content.
You can add or manage a single or multiple users and restrict access to pages based on job roles. What’s more, with just a few clicks of the mouse you can edit existing pages or create new ones at any time and publish them in the future.

22. User Profiles
User profiles are an important part of any modern intranet especially if they are used in conjunction with a searchable staff directory. They enable self-service access for staff who may, for example, want to identify an internal source of knowledge on digital marketing. Alternatively, staff members who are working on a cross-departmental project such as enhancing the customer experience may also want to follow staff members working on similar issues.
23. High Availability

Up to 40 percent of US workers now work remotely at least some of the time. And the numbers involved are only set to increase as more employees opt for greater flexibility and shorter hours spent in the office. What’s more, your business may involve staff members regularly out and about on the road whether it’s drumming up new business or providing and delivering product and services.
