Lawrence Companies, with home offices located in Roanoke, VA, has teamed with SiteVision Inc. to launch a secure, employee only intranet to better serve their 380 plus employees. The company operates in the United States and Canada with offices throughout Virginia and North Carolina.
The new site is designed to fully engage all employees by providing an important hub for employee benefits and events. The site features wellness information, employee spotlights, a calendar of upcoming events, and a blog area. It also includes classified ads, safety guides, an employee directory and is optimized for mobile devices to accommodate their many traveling employees.
The intranet utilizes a content management system (CMS) designed to allow publishing, editing and modifying content from a core interface.The new CMS eliminates complex coding and creates client control over HTML-based content, files, documents, and the like. One or multiple employees at various permission levels may change content easily within a familiar word processing environment.
According to Mark Carter, IT Manager, “We were looking for a solution to improve employee communication that had to be secure, but easy to access and maintain. Needing to reach hundreds of employees and contractors, we turned to SiteVision for assistance. Within just a couple of weeks after providing our wish list, we were live. Needless to say, we were impressed and excited. It was a joy to work with a local development and hosting company. I am sure that as our site expands, SiteVision will be there to grow it with us.”
