Axfood launches new intranet based on Office 365 and Omnia

After a comprehensive project, the 10,000 employees of the Axfood Group have gained access to a new and improved intranet based on Omnia and Office 365.

The launched solution, based on Office 365 and Omnia Intranet, is not only an intranet for Axfood, but also includes intranets for the subsidiaries Tempo, Hemköp, Willys, Dagab and Snabbgross.

Omnia offers support for targeted internal communication, collaboration and social interaction and a personalized experience for end-users. The intranet is tightly integrated with a variety of Office 365 services and provisioning templates are used to orchestrate what tools are used in team collaboration.

The intranet's home pages show the latest news with local, chain-specific or group-wide focus. Users can also access external information about Axfood in social media, see press clips and sales statistics.

The solution also support publishing of critical information such as Product Alarm and Operational Information to all intranet notification panels. The solution is trimmed to provide a great mobile experience and is accessible via all internet-connected units, by all employees within the Group.

- With our newly launched intranet, we have created a modern digital workplace with mobile accessibility that includes all employees in the Axfood Group - from salaried employees to store and warehouse workers. It invites both dialogue and creates a whole for effective collaboration and clear communication, says Katarina Wirtén Lindau, internal communications manager, at Axfood.

Axfood choose Precio Fishbone as their implementation partner and the project was headed by Sara Jönsson-Sandgren. She comments on the project as follows:

- In addition to the pleasure of working with an interesting organization with wonderfully talented and committed people, the project with Axfood has given us at Precio Fishbone very valuable views and insights when it comes to intranets for international organizations and the retail sector.

- Also, it has been really exiting working with a global intranet that includes several brands and design requirements, says Sara Jönsson-Sandgren, Project Manager, at Precio Fishbone.
