7 Ways an Intranet Can Save You Money and TIme

  1. Safeguard Against Security Breach


  • Data breaches are destructive and costly. According to the breach report by the Ponemon Institute and IBM, the cost of a data breach in 2021 was $4.24 million. Moreover, this is a 10% increase from the total average cost of a data breach in 2019. The purpose of data breach reports is to encourage organisations and businesses to address cyber security risks and improve their overall security.

  • The Steegle Springboard Intranet is built on Google technology and your data remains within the Google domain. Other intranet providers transfer your data to their domain which can cause data breaching.

  • Another advantage of a Google-based intranet is that you can prevent data breaches by storing your documents securely and customising who can gain access to your documents. For maximum security, you should prioritise SOC-2 and ISO certifications.

2. Support


  • To have a successful intranet, guidance and support are crucial. One option is to hire support staff. But, this option is pricey considering the starting salary is around $85,000.

  • Instead of hiring engineers, why not use your intranet to create built-in technical support? Some intranet providers offer around-the-clock support for their clients.

  • It’s also better to get support from colleagues and an intranet makes it easier for employees to reach out to one another via forums, knowledge bases, or other means of communication within the platform. This is extremely beneficial, especially to remote employees.

3. Developmental and Fast Deployment

  • Launching an intranet is just the beginning. Your intranet needs to grow to be successful over time. You may need to hire a workforce and IT teams to support your project. But, a modern-day solution can help you develop your intranet without burdening your IT team.

  • Intranets nowadays use drag and drop installation for pre-configured features to expand the capabilities of your intranet.

  • The Google-based intranet Springboard can be set up in just 2 weeks! Not to mention, building your intranet does not require prior knowledge ofprogramming. This helps you save time and money.

4. Employees Work Smarter


  • An intranet saves the time of your employees in doing daily tasks such as searching for important documents and forms. With an intranet, you can store files or documents about your company’s standards and procedures in the intranet.

  • The Steegle Springboard has a library file function where you can store documents so users can have access to them.

  • Moreover, you can easily search for documents using the search capabilities of your intranet. This will help your employees focus on value-adding activities rather than spending time searching for documents.

5. Reduced licensing costs


  • Many businesses or companies use more than one application or tool for their daily tasks and each tool comes with an additional cost. Businesses pay a separate fee for enterprise search tools, calendar management tools, email creation, forms, digital signage software, and many more. Having an intranet helps you reduce licensing costs because most modern intranets have collaboration capabilities and are able to provide means of communication.


With the Steegle Springboard intranet, you’re able to link other apps such as Okta on the App Locker.

6. Recruitment


  • There are many ways to save money and time using your intranet. Did you know that you can also save money on recruitment? Internal recruitment can be done by posting jobs on your intranet job board so your employees can see them while they are working.

  • Additionally, the HR department can use the intranet to route applications from external recruitment.

7. Onboarding


  • Onboarding a new employee is a time-consuming process. The HR department spends lots of time reviewing and completing the hours of processes, procedures, and paperwork.

  • An intranet is a perfect solution for reducing the time that your HR employees spend onboarding new employees by providing them with key documents, training videos, forms, and manuals.

  • Additionally, employees can easily access HR documents at any time. This will reduce the time needed for your HR employees to answer questions.
