What a great week for our customer AMP. They rocked the #DW24, a 24-hour showroom of intranets around the world with a live tour of AMP’s brand new social intranet, The Hub. Using NewsGator, the new intranet delivers a beautiful, unified experience — bringing together published content, collaboration sites, and social interactivity into one place for AMP employees to do their work. I am thrilled to see them gaining so much value from using our product — or as one participant said:
I think I’m in love! AMP’s intranet stands out to me as an intranet site that may have done the very best job of balancing “different” with “useful.” This intranet is innovative while also adhering to a healthy design ethic that seems to enhance the site’s usability and not just make it peculiar.
AMP started with Yammer and upgraded later to NewsGator, leveraging their investment in SharePoint — a great story of building social in the Microsoft ecosystem.
Amplify your Creativity: There’s no such thing as business as usual.
The Hub gives you a good idea about the culture at AMP. As a leading financial institution, they know that banking requires new thinking, new ideas, and new ways to connect. In fact, their innovation event, AMPlify Festival, connects ideas from outside the company in the same way the Hub is connecting all their employees. Checkout AMPlify, Australia's leading festival for discussing business innovation with the world's boldest thinkers for yourself. It’s happening June 3-7 in Sydney and Melbourne and we think it’s too cool to miss.
