Create a fantastic intranet in SharePoint

An attractive and easy-to-use intranet is a great way to keep your workforce and partner community engaged, well-informed and productive.

If you’re struggling to get the intranet you want from Modern SharePoint, or you want to update your Classic SharePoint site collections, we can help.

Essential can fast-track your SharePoint site development, providing the know-how, design skills, targeted training and if needed, a ‘layer of flair’ to deliver an intranet experience that is engaging for end users and easy for content providers to maintain.

The benefits of using our SharePoint services

Professional-looking SharePoint Intranet

Rapid results

Support your hybrid workforce with a SharePoint intranet that’s optimised for success.

Our SharePoint design services are aimed achieving rapid results, an on-brand experience and easy ongoing maintenance for contributors.

We can work with ‘vanilla’ SharePoint or layer in out-of-the-box templates and extra components that will transform your SharePoint experience and give the key people in your enterprise (e.g. the communications team) the power they need to build a SharePoint-based intranet to be proud of.

A sleek UX

Microsoft SharePoint templates are a good start, but sometimes overwhelming and difficult to ‘style up to reflect your brand.

We’re big believers in having a simple, impactful design that’s aligned with your business needs and is easy to ‘style up’.

Our technical and design teams will work with your key stakeholders to deliver the best architecture, optimal content editing experience, and, of course, the best end user experience.

Better engagement

An intranet is no good if no one enjoys using it, the content never changes or users can’t find what they need.

We make it easy to for your workforce to find what they need through well-thought-out navigation, visual cues and audience targeting.

Importantly, we will make sure your various content contributors are confident working with SharePoint.

Great-looking & secure extranets

If you’d like to create a professional-looking extranet using SharePoint, but don’t want to burden your IT team with administrating guest access, we can help.

Our extranet user management service lets you create a branded portal and an invitation process that partner/business managers can manage, whilst keeping the IT team fully in charge of security.
