Why you should consider integrating Yammer into your intranet

The intranet fulfills several roles within an organization. It is a website, a communication channel, a content archive and a collaboration platform, just to name a few purposes. Successful intranet solutions give employees the possibility to easily contribute to the platform and to integrate with existing content. These ‘social intranets’ connect each piece of information to a person and help people connect with each other. They revolve around people. This is unlike traditional intranets, which often contain unique content that can only be accessed and edited by a handful of people.

yammerTo stay connected is more important than ever, and this is exactly what Yammer provides:

HERE’S 5 REASONS WHY YAMMER BELONGS IN YOUR INTRANET

CONNECT AND STAY IN THE LOOP

No matter how big the organization is, everyone experiences this at some point: you want to talk to a colleague, but you are working from a different location or you can’t find a free moment in your calendars. With Yammer, you can ‘follow’ colleagues, allowing you to stay up to date about projects they work on and content they share. You can give feedback on their content instantly, from the interface. 

SHARE KNOWLEDGE FASTER AND MORE EFFICIENTLY

Unlike chat or email conversations, with Yammer you can store information into public or private Yammer groups, allowing you to bundle information about interests, events or projects, for example.

Did you recently see an interesting article or a best practice about a topic within your industry? Information that your colleagues would find useful as well? Share the link, PDF, image or video and use a hashtag to make the information easily findable. Do you want to notify a specific person about this article? @mention them so they receive a notification.

FIND ANSWERS FASTER

The extensive search engine of Yammer helps you to easily find information from groups, profiles of colleagues, files projects and conversations. If Yammer has no information available yet about the topic, you will easily be introduced to a colleague who will be able to help you.

INCREASE ENGAGEMENT

There is a low barrier to share knowledge with Yammer. It provides a way for employees to get to know each other better. New employees will be up to date sooner, because of the knowledge that is already available within the network.

SEAMLESS INTEGRATION WITH OFFICE

Because of the integration with Office and its tools like SharePoint, OneNote, Outlook, Group Planner and Power BI, you use the trusted interface and functionality for sharing files. View, edit and collaborate on documents with Office Online. Your work will automatically be saved and you can easily compare versions and make changes.
