Shell is to deploy BrightStarr’s Unily intranet platform in a ‘global digital workplace’ that will connect 135,000 users in over 70 countries. The platform will combine eight legacy applications into a ‘single integrated intranet experience.’ Microsoft Office 365 tools will be accessible through the portal. The new portal will deliver personalized and targeted corporate information to users of desktop and mobile endpoints and act as a gateway to tools used in IT support. For HR, Unily promises an ‘integrated employee profile’ in a single platform ‘that will encourage social networking and knowledge sharing.’
David Harrington, Shell’s VP internal communications modestly reports, ‘Our people are some of the brightest in the industry and expect the newest tools and applications to drive productivity and engagement. Unily will help us to create the experience our employees are seeking.’ UK headquartered SharePoint consultancy BrightStarr previously provided Conoco-Phillips ‘The mark’ internal web portal leveraging its ‘Kinetica’ methodology. Unily was also used by Amec engineers to develop a new intranet following its merger with Foster Wheeler back in 2014.
