DVG was presented with the request to design and develop an intranet site for a major city agency. The site needed to provide the ability for an employee to find HR materials, as well as access all internal applications. Each division of the agency needed to have their own page with the ability to upload content. The customer required the site to integrate feeds from social media sites, as well as contain a portal for recent news.
DVG chose to implement the solution using Microsoft SharePoint. Our design team met with the client to design each of the pages with usability in mind while ensuring that the design could be implemented within the SharePoint framework. In addition, a workflow process based on Nintex was implemented to meet the needs of the client. The design team created prototypes of the solution to demonstrate the navigation and page flow in order to give the customer a better feel for the solution. A schedule was published to the customer so that proper expectations could be set in terms of the deliverables. Once approved, the design was implemented by the development team using an agile approach.
