Ellen's Intranet Promotion Videos

Videos to celebrate or inform about the (re)launch of an intranet or enterprise social tool.

  • You can use the Filter option to select language, organizational type etc.
  • Please be aware you will need to be logged in to Vimeo (free account) to watch some videos that live there.
  • Will you let me know when you have an addition, or if you see that a video is no longer available?

Teaser for a new social intranet (well, that took some time!) for this Dutch datacenter host.
As this intranet is meant to connect people, and the organization has an x in their name, it makes sense to call this ConneXion.
It is a better way to connect, communicate and collaborate.

"Coming to a screen near you" - a classic phrase in intranet promotion videos!

Lots of spoken text in Spanish, but I think you will understand the gist of it without copying and translating the available transcript. This is the intranet for a Columbian software company. In this video you get a high-level summary of the homepage.
It has all the usual suspects, such as navigation elements, a rotating banner, recent news, search etc.
The dropdown top-left, called "Herramientos" (tools) is an interesting one as it contains icons rather than texts. I hope everyone knows what those icons mean, as there is also no alt-text.
In case you want to add News, you have to submit it to the secretary of the CEO, if I understand correctly. Oh, and by now you will understand this is not SharePoint. 😉

The video below is an explanation of what is behind each item of the left-hand-side menu

SWK - Intranet - Erklärvideo (in German)

Animated teaser for this intranet for the municipal services for a German city. Sadly we do not see any real images of the intranet, but there are nice animations of processes, so they can be an inspiration for your own video. The name of the intranet is KOSMOS, and it is used for information exchange, idea generation, networking, collaborating on documents, ask questions to experts. In short: it makes collaboration easier and is a new way to work.

Intranet TU/e teaser

You may have seen this teaser before, but it now has two accompanying videos!

We have seen it before: the old intranet can sometimes be a jungle, where you can't find anything. And sometimes it hides scary things....
This is for a university in the Netherlands. We are ever so curious what has happened to Sebastian, who has been sent to the old intranet to find a file. Goodbye searching, hello finding!

Uploaded February 2023.

In this video, Sebastian is still looking for the file. He is running around campus with a big jungle knife. (I wonder why other people stay so calm 😁) But finally he finds the desired file. Goodbye static content, hello dynamic content!

Sebastian wants to file something to the intranet and he finds out he can do that himself. Goodbye bystander, hello participant!

FT Intranet Info Video

An intranet demo of 6 minutes of a slow talking person can be a bit much, but this demo for an technology education institute in the USA has a few interesting things. And you can use subtitles and speed up the video a bit 😉

  • It is called FT Connect. You know I am partial to intranets called Connect 😁
  • It is built on Simpplr, an unknown platform for me. Nice to see how that looks.
  • For profiles they use a cover image which you are requested to add. Hmmm, I wonder why that is necessary and how many will be going to do that. (It is not a profile picture, but a background image)
  • On someone's profile page you can see what they have published.
  • There's not a navigation in topics, but in applications. You can find all topics and sites you re interested in (or member of) under "sites".
  • It has a "must read" option for important documents, e.g. policies. You get notified you have to read it, and then have to sign after reading. Now, a signed document is not necessarily a read document, or an understood message, or an desired action taken, but it is interesting that organizations think this works. It reminds me of Chris Tubb's: “A page view is not an idea understood, a behaviour changed or a user engaged” when talking about intranet news reading statistics.
  • There are search verticals. Nothing exciting, but it may help you find things.

We're Launching a New Intranet!

This is a nice teaser. Different people talk about the new intranet, and of course it will have...all those things that modern intranets have. I really like the approach.
The only thing is that it is shot vertically, so you do not have a lot of real estate.
This is for a Canadian health care center.

They also have a video for how to access the intranet...and guess what, it is called BCHUConnect! Another Connect one 😁

SAP S4 Intranet Launch Video

I know that SAP is a necessary business software, but I have always hated the total lack of flexibility of it, and the most un-intuitive language to get something done. So it gives me great pleasure to see an "intranet" built on SharePoint to inform staff about a SAP project. Nice upbeat music, colourful screens, a QR code: quite a pleasant video actually.
This is for a South African company that produces sugar and sugar products, so I can imagine they will benefit from a robust SAP-solution.

Intranet RRHH (in Spanish)

I do not know for what organization this is. It is a problem-and-the-answer-is-this-intranet video, from Colombia.
I am not particularly impressed with the quality of the video, as the text is static and takes a lot of real estate, while the screenshots change and are more informative. Watch on full-screen, I would say. It may provide inspiration for the HR-related content on your intranet.

Uploaded December 2023


There's a lot you can say or show in 37 seconds!
It is on SharePoint, it has a great Search, it has News and is available on multiple devices. All introduced by different people. Nice!
This is a German media company for B2B. The thumbnail may be in German, but the spoken word is English, btw.

Introducing The Encore Loop Intranet

Excellent teaser for this USA real estate company. The intranet is (again) a solution to the well-known problem of dispersed information. The intranet "makes it easier to work from home" which may sound logical but it means they take WFH seriously. Screenshots are mostly on the smartphone (it is an app for iPhone and Google) and the background images are beautiful. All the usual content such as news, benefits, company directory etc. The only thing that I hope can be customized (=turned off) is a notification to answer a poll while you are out sailing 😁, as I would find that pretty intrusive.

INTRANET launch (in French and Dutch)

This teaser, for the intranet of a Belgian webshop in electronics and household products, is available in French and Dutch. Let's start with French, as more people speak that. The Dutch version is below.
It is a classic scenario of a problem, where the solution is an intranet. It shows a diverse set of people in home environment, in office and in another workspace. The promise is "it is easier to find information in a central place, such as news and events, benefits, logo's and other imagery. It is easy to find as it is the start page of your browser." And available on multiple devices, obviously.
The intranet looks very nice, clean, and in the design of the webshop.

Bridge Intro

More and more we are seeing intranets running on Microsoft Teams, and Viva Engage. This, for a supermarket chain in the USA, is one of those. The language is rather pompous, and I would use simpler and more engaging language for this workforce, but the intranet looks nice and the teaser is mobile-only, which is interesting.

Kick-off video Linck (Dutch with English subtitles)

Soon coming: Linck. A platform to connect all 1.700 employees who work for AutoBinck Group. Share news & knowledge, connect, innovate and learn.

This teaser starts with all information and opportunities that employees would like to have in order to work better, in interview style. After 2 mins someone (no mention of his name or role) explains the name of the new intranet that will help employees with their work. And of course it is supposed to be interactive.
The ending is quite funny.

This is a Dutch conglomerate of companies that does something with cars, car lease, EV's etc. To be honest, their website is full of woolly language that does not really say what they are doing, but they started out as a car dealership.

And Our Intranet Name Is...

It must be casual Friday 😁

Nice video in which the Chairman of this American project management services organization discloses the name of the organization's intranet. He explains what the intranet is, what it should do for the organization, and finally what the name is. I am not going to share that name here, but I like it. It is a good video, with subtitles, so please watch it and find out!

New Intranet Walkthrough

This is the new SharePoint based intranet for the Transportation Department of a state in the USA.
I do like their "important phone numbers" in the top navigation. It may not link to something, but I can imagine this is useful information, so why not. Sadly, some topics are hidden behind the ... so shorter words in the top navigation may have been better, if you can shorten them at all.
I also like the people first when you click on any office link - no hiding behind a link, but everyone's name, picture and role is there, so you know who does what.
The video quality is a bit low, especially on full-screen, and I do not like that Google bar on the bottom. Also, the homepage is only partly visible during most of the demo.

Uploaded November 2023.

GO Further

Upbeat music and a fast pace of scrolling and clicking. With almost 2 mins this is quite long for a teaser, while too fast and not detailed enough for a demo.
This is the upcoming intranet for a North American building design and architecture firm.
It contains all the usual components, including a nice directory of completed and under-construction projects (buildings).

New Intranet Popping

On the one hand the popcorn is a reference to the "coming to a screen near you" meme that is used so very often when it comes to introducing intranets.
On the other hand, this 10 sec video is very impactful due to the visuals.
I think this is for an insurance company in the USA.

They have an another video for the same launch on September 15, 2020, with some more info about access to work applications:

Connect (in French)

Intranets called "Connect" have my special interest, as I used to work for one, too. 😁

This video is for introducing the Connect intranet to an organization. There is no clue as to which organization, as the video uses wireframes only, and no real content. This is a pity, because they explain the concept behind the intranet very nicely (less email, find colleagues, better collaboration across the globe etc). The visuals of a day in the work of a project manager are also very to-the-point.

New Intranet Announcement

Decent intro to a relaunched Wordpress-based intranet for this USA mortgage provider. Nice touch that the person who is taking you through the site is visible when the video starts.
The homepage is a tad crowded, with two full columns, but I guess that is just me who has a slight problem with that. I wonder how this is shown on smaller screens (yes, this intranet is available on all devices).

Lots of financial dashboards, of course, but also a ton of company information, including a tab called "Departments" where all departments are listed with the word "department" after each name. Why? The fact that this is under "Departments" should be enough to just add "Communication/HR/CEO Office" etc. It reminds me of my former employer AkzoNobel where all items on the intranet were called "AkzoNobel this" and AkzoNobel that" and all HR stuff was labelled as "HR this" and "HR that". Very redundant!

The Department pages are very focused on the people working there, and you can get in touch quickly by clicking a button to start up a Teams conversation.

Campbell's Digital Transformation Intranet

I hope this is a design prototype and not a demo for employees. The scrolling is too fast to make sense, there is a lot of "Lorum Ipsum" and repetitive articles so I guess this is not the final version. I was rather looking forward to a demo from this major food manufacturer from the USA.

The intranet looks very clean and on-brand. I would suggest to make the various tags (news, capabilities, microlearnings) in different colours so people see at a glance what topic an article has. But then I guess the red is more on brand. Oh, and this is built in Google sites, I think.

I hope a final version will be published soon as I am very curious! (Once a food technologist, always a food technologist 😁)

Teams App Challenge (in French/English)

To be honest, I do not quite understand what I am looking at here. 😁
In any case this is Teams, and apparently a group has created a local intranet, with maps and a password generator (???), a Planner, and other stuff but otherwise this is beyond me.
Still, it is nice to see an intranet with no design, just Teams.

IMQ_intranet (in Italian)

Teaser for an Italian company that provides certification, audits and the like.

Design is very nice, colourful and tasteful, in their corporate style. It looks as if it is very corporate, with information about the organization and HR.
I do not like the "Lorem Ipsum" texts, as this makes it look as if design is more important than content, nor the slanted view of the pages. On the other hand, this is a teaser and not a demo so just a hint of what it looks like should be sufficient.

Uploaded December 2023.

NCN Intranet

Not the most exciting intro video, but one can never have enough SharePoint homepages and it does contain a short demo on how to request service from IT or Facilities, albeit in a different system.
I like their tiles for the various applications - I only hope they have alt text so everyone can understand what they are about.

This is for a health care organization in Australia with several health care facilities, e.g. GP, Emergency, dental care, elderly care etc.

You may have seen this video earlier with a launch date of January 11. Apparently the launch has been postponed.

Nice teaser for this SharePoint intranet, which will be (re)launched on January 18.
Dramatic movie music (Jurassic Park?) shows that this is a major event.
Fortunately you will find all your content, but than in a new design, simpler and better. You can also interact, such as sharing comments and liking.
This organization provides digital skills mediation service in France. This service connects businesses with digital service providers.

They also have a sort of "Goodbye Phase 1 intranet" video, published a month ago, see below. The final screenshot has been blurred, only to be revealed now:
