Enhance your digital workplace with a modern intranet experience

The modern workplace requires your intranet to be effective as a remote tool, as a mobile tool, and go beyond a stale set of published documents. The modern intranet needs to be dynamic and personalized to help employees find what they need quickly, and connect employees to the trends, up-to-date communications from leaders, and what is happening within the organization.

We have built out proven design and implementation processes with SharePoint and Akumina to get your portal up and running as quickly as possible. From design to custom integrations, our team will take your requirements and implement them efficiently and effectively.

Create a modern, dynamic SharePoint portal to communicate with your employees

The modern SharePoint Online intranet portal begins with the Communication Site template, the starting point for a responsive, integrated, feature-rich portal.  But there are various options to configure, customize, and personalize it for your organization.

Compass365 has a proven program designed to get you up to speed on the modern SharePoint experience and launch a new, modern, functional website site your users will love.
