The Business Goal
Accolade Wines required a modern digital platform to support collaboration and communication, leveraging investments already made in Office 365. The platform needed to be easy to manage and update with customisable pages and plug-ins to deliver dynamic and interactive content, as well as effective integration with corporate systems and portals.
A key pillar of the organisation’s purpose, vision and strategy is People – creating a high-performance, inclusive, diverse and collaborative culture. The intranet replacement was a strategic imperative to achieving this vision.
