Welcome to the New Compass Intranet!

Standard teaser for this intranet of a travel agent in the USA. It is called Compass, which is very apt.

It has all the usual trimmings, such as news, policies, events, conversations, contacts etc. Of course it can be accessed from any device, but it is also customizable and available in 15 (!!!) languages. Nice feature, and I wonder if more people do that now than when the concept was first introduced. Does anyone have any data on that, perhaps?

Das neue Intranet@TAS_DE (in German)

Now what the heck is this? It is a teaser, a demo and a people video in one. At first I thought it was a talking head, and I was afraid that it would be extremely boring to have over 6 minutes of that, but fortunately this is a scripted and rehearsed Q and A about the intranet, so it is quite entertaining. Not sure if the German/Swiss language and subtitles are easy to understand for everyone.

Apparently this Swiss security services provider had another intranet, and an S-drive for document storage, but these have been moved to the new SharePoint-based intranet, and integrated with all the other Microsoft365 tools. The new intranet is of course much better and it is easier to find information. But whether all employees have the urge to look for the Mission and Vision? I highly doubt it.

The new IT intranet is coming soon!

A true teaser from this logistics company in France. The IT intranet, based on SharePoint, will contain news, teams, projects and... well, you will have to wait until launch, I think.

There is also a version in French:

Intranet Jones

Lovely colourful home page with large images for this Brazilian advertising agency. I also love the Jones typeface 😁
Well, there's news, policies and procedures, employee information and what not. No sound, by the way.

Two other videos should show some more detail of parts of the intranet, but again it is large clickable images, so we do not see any real content.

Intranet Tour: Highlights from AE2S's Transition to Synthesis 6

This is a VERY long video but I decided to include it because it is a story of an intranet redevelopment and a demo by a very knowledgeable person (Marketing Manager and Intranet Champion) in one. Sometimes the focus is too much on the tool (Synthesis, never heard of it) but in general this gives a good insight not only in the intranet, but also in the transition and the organization.
The first part (about 15 mins, starting around 1.30) is the real demo and story, then we dive into questions from the audience.

Some interesting content tidbits, such as a page with floor plans, a page with the names and profiles of the drone pilots from the organization, and an extensive use of a project database to create various useful views.

The organization is an engineering company in the USA.

Video tutorial para intranet corporativa (in Spanish)

Solid demo for a transporter of crude oil within Colombia. You can see the layout of the pipeline on the top of the intranet home page!
The name is GREEN letters. Most confusing 😁 But "red" in Spanish means "network" which is a perfectly suitable name for an intranet, of course.

All elements of the corporate intranet are discussed. The menu, news, banners, profiles, search, documents etc. You can also add your own widgets, such as links, mailbox etc. The intranet does not appear to be made in SharePoint but otherwise there are various Microsoft apps shown.

There is only one thing I do not like about this video and that is the voice/sound level. Otherwise a very nice demo video.

Welcome to the Neighborhood!

Pleasant concise demo for this colourful SharePoint-based intranet for an American producer of sweet bakery products, coffee, other food and pet foods. It also has a great name, the Neighborhood!

Nuestra intranet Periscopio (in Spanish)

This intranet is called "Periscope" which is a nice name for an Spanish state-owned organisation that designs and builds ships (military and civilian). It is on SharePoint (and not Sharepoint, as I saw mentioned on one of the pages).
It starts a bit messy, but then quickly turns into a nice overview of content and functionalities (you can personalize links and applications) interspersed with real-life situations. It contains all the usual things that are relevant for an intranet. It also has an English version.
Nice simple design, easy on the eyes.

Lots of red, I like that! But writing Sharepoint with an undercast p - not so nice. 😡
This is a subset of the Mars (food production, think Mars Bars) conglomerate, the pet food division to be precise. You can see the Mars name on top left of the site.
The RCDT SharePoint site promotes Transparency, Engagement and Efficiency. Standard SharePoint, with good use of Forms, for feedback but especially for idea capture and processing - this setup is quite impressive with dashboards and graphs. Not sure if this is Lists; I could not see it properly. I also like their IT-support setup.

Fundación Grupo CAABSA (in Spanish)

I am generally not a fan of videos created with PowToon but this one is quite pleasant - perhaps the tool has improved a bit or they just know how to use it properly. 😉
The intranet featured in this video is a partial one. The main intranet is for a consortium of Mexican companies working in building, construction, infrastructure, telecom and what not - and the demo is for a part of that intranet, its Foundation, which is a charity organization focusing on doing good things for the community, e.g. education, lectures, collecting for people in need, etc. It also has a section for employee benefits.
The intranet is based on Google sites, and looks much like the Foundation website.

Brinkmann Intranet Final on Vimeo

If "the best thing about the intranet is that it is available on the go" then I am not sure if it is a good intranet 😉 but this is certainly a fun teaser, a little over-the-top and tongue-in-cheek, with jazzy music and exclamations in between.
The intranet is new for this building and construction company in the USA, and it should help to make the company do better. Business goals, yay!
They are also looking for a name - I hope we will find out what the name will be eventually.

Vídeo 1 Intranet (in Spanish)

An intranet from Costa Rica, lovely holiday country for nature lovers!
After a rather confusing intro with lots of puzzle pieces, a nice lady talks about the intranet, interspersed with screenshots.
You will see all the usual things like News, Events, Documents, Jobs, etc. and all other things relevant for a credit- providing organization in Middle-America.

NEW MCS INTRANET 2023 (in Spanish)

This intranet starts out as a people video, with an introduction by someone from IT, and then turns into a demo, where a number of questions are being answered.
Nice design, very clean and crisp, in corporate colours, with nice photographs and icons/typography.
I especially like the three main content blocks: My Communication (News and other information), My Wellness (with lots of exercises and tips for staying healthy at work) and My Resources (with all kinds of Employee-related information and systems).
This is a health care organization in Puerto Rico, USA, but their website did not work on my computer so that is all that I can say about it.

Denholm Intranet Launch

I first thought that this combination of a people video with animated screenshots was a good idea (because it can be quite boring to look at a talking head), but I soon found that my attention was divided. This was not helped by the fact that the screenshots are not entirely in synch with what's being said. Nonetheless, a nice talk by an unnamed person from the organization.
This intranet is meant to be the one hub for information, documentation, careers, etc. and all mod cons you expect from a current intranet.
Employees are specifically requested to give feedback for improvements; there is actually a large button on the homepage to do that. Nice detail!
This intranet is for a logistics company based in Scotland.

Intranet - Manual de Uso (in Portuguese)

Nice demo for this SharePoint intranet. The colours are like their website, in lots of green tones, it looks very refreshing. I am also curious about the top navigation - it appears as if they have used an different "skin" on SharePoint or they have used icons for the navigation or they have customized it - I can not see that properly.
The demo focuses on the content in the top navigation.

This is for an organization that distributes discount cards in Brazil.

Intranet & SP on Vimeo

Not a standard intranet demo, but it contains a few nice pages with Microsoft Lists. Both the design of the list, as the page where all similar lists live.
It's SharePoint, of course!

This is for a USA-based financial service organisation that specializes in car loans.

FBEO Intranet Site Tutorial

This is a pretty cool demo video for a Food Bank intranet in the USA. Because it is SharePoint, of course, but also because they use Lists for Requests and they have a room booking system based on Outlook and Teams which looks pretty cool. Also because it is focused on "doing your work", which I like. It also looks good, but not extremely beautiful. Excellent.
The only thing I am wondering is if this is computer-spoken.

Short teaser for a new "Reimagined" SharePoint intranet for an semiconductor (?) company in the USA.
Apparently it has smart search, quick access to relevant sites, and a News hub, and "upgraded features" for a better navigation.

The soundtrack appears a bit off.

¡Nuestra Intranet se nueva para ti! (in Spanish)

This little instruction video deals entirely with completing your profile. Not sure if this is really necessary in these days of social media, but it is a nice description for those who have never done it.

This organization helps female entrepreneurs in Colombia.

Star Companies - Welcome to the Intranet

The good things on this people video are: we know who this person is, there is a neutral background that does not distract us from the speaker, and the speaker is comfortable in front of a camera.
But, this video is quite long (> 4 minutes) and is clearly not rehearsed so it is not very snappy.

This high-end home electronics retailer and installer (they create Home Cinema's and Smart Homes, for instance) are a small organization, but as they are very dispersed, an intranet will help them with their work and connecting with others. It is interesting that they are also allowed, even stimulated, to share personal information (such as birthdays and private accomplishments) and use the intranet for personal things, as long as it helps the connection between colleagues. Nice!

Glencore - DW - Launch Film

This new intranet has it all, apparently. In any case this is a cheerful video, nice soundtrack, pleasant colours, and it has a good name: The Core, which is especially suitable for a company called Glencore, which is a Switzerland-based international trading and mining company. "Connect. Learn. Grow" is the tagline, which makes a nice change from the rather worn "Communicate, Connect, Collaborate" that we see so often.

There's an extensive Newsfeed page with "your" content from across the organization, of course there is a lot of News, there are communities and other ways to connect to colleagues, you can personalize some things and it is also available on other devices.

Intranet CONECTA FALP (in Spanish)

A new intranet for this Cancer Hospital in Chili. The new intranet is colourful and has lots of images and has all the info you expect, such as news, people info, organigrams, policies and access to various systems. Of course it is also available for smartphone.
They log in with Microsoft, but the intranet does not look like SharePoint, and I also noticed an app in the Google play store, so I guess the intranet is based on a different platform.

DASSAULT Intranet Launch Demo on Vimeo

Phew, this is a tiring video. The computer displayed keeps on moving to the front and to the back, and the intranet itself looks a bit cluttered as well, despite the calm blue colour scheme.

This is the new intranet for a French company that builds various types of airplanes. The intranet is integrated with their systems, apparently, which is nice, and also has a lot of corporate info such as news, events, sustainability information, etc. The Cherry on top is being able to connect with your colleagues.
Sadly there is so much movement and the screen displayed is relatively small, so there's not a lot of detail visible.

gunnercooke - Intranet Launch Video

Nice teaser for the new intranet of this UK legal and finance services organization.
It looks like SharePoint (with some customizations) and the lovely design mimics their website.

I quite like their very prominent search boxes for Experts and Clients, and the templates section so you have no excuse that you have used an outdated template... They also use different voices during the video which is good for variety, and show some employees at the end.
Every page contains a little block with helpful info, but should "print this page" really be an option for every page?

It also has a name with "Connect" in it, yay! 😁

IT on Vimeo (in Spanish)

This is not exactly an intranet promotion video, but it is interesting in its own way. This is an extensive (twelve and a half minutes!!!) introduction/demo about mission/vision, services, data protection, procedures and products of the IT department of a logistic services provider in Mexico. It is almost a learning module! 😁
Nonetheless, this may provide inspiration for any IT department that wants to describe their department.
