The challenge

Troubling compliance issues

The current intranet system was causing the charity to pay fines due to out-of-date pilots’ licenses that weren’t being flagged. Reliance on manually checking details was time-consuming and costing the charity money that could have been spent elsewhere.


Access anywhere was also a priority if pilots were stationed in countries with low connectivity, then they still needed to be able to access the intranet. 


It was clear to our clients that upgrading the intranet would play a pivotal role in overcoming these issues.

The solution

Building an effective charity intranet solution

Due to our proven SharePoint expertise, the client chose us to build their new intranet.


Our proposal was to create a brand new intranet in the cloud. Doing this would help eliminate the compliance failures and save the charity money in the long run. 


We created automated notifications for licences that were due to expire. Our SharePoint intranet developers ensured the charity could easily manage the situation and stop being fined. We also introduced a permissions system that made sure only those with the proper authority could access sensitive information.

The benefits

Unifying the workforce

The primary benefit of this SharePoint solution was allowing staff to access company information no matter where they were based. 


Another benefit was the intranet’s function as a staff directory. Employees could view the organisational structure with ease and stay up to date on staff deployment.


Overall, the business benefits of this charity intranet solution were:


  • saving time by automating manual tasks
  • enabling connectivity anywhere in the world
  • avoiding the risk of compliance breaches
