Our partners are crucial to our success. Together, we aim to serve our current and future client base in their digital transformation. Origami Connect is one of our partners offering customized intranet solutions for various industry verticals. SharePoint, the market leader in the intranet space, is used by 80% of Fortune 100 companies. Its cloud offerings and improved, user-friendly features have continued to gain popularity. Filled with various out-of-the-box features that focus on specific functions, it assists collaboration and increases efficiency.
However, SharePoint can raise some challenges if you want to tweak the base functionality, customize the interface, or add some integrations. Origami is the answer to these issues. Origami solution helps organizations convert their SharePoint sites into a SharePoint intranet. Origami Connect unites the most popular, carefully designed team collaboration and engagement features with beautifully crafted templates to maximize user experience without the custom-made price tag.
Origami Connect customers measure a 70% increase in information findability resulting in steadfast user adoption and employee satisfaction. Origami takes pride in creating beautiful, consumer-grade platforms that your people have come to expect. However, for an intranet to succeed, user experience is paramount. Origami is the only website-like SharePoint intranet that measures user-friendliness with actual user patterns and behaviours.
Origami Connect templates help content owners and authors get started with stunning pre-built designs, resulting in a clean interface that includes everything your employees need to finish their job. The solution can either be carried out in the cloud or on-premise. Origami lets employees engage by providing a forum for conversations, broadcasting company events, news, and alerts. The system also includes social features such as liking, commenting, and sharing events. In addition, the solution allows managers to customize SharePoint sites with pre-designed templates for different departments. Furthermore, Origami has features such as a policies and procedures finder, classifieds, a forms and templates finder and functionality for surveys and polls. Finally, the solution has various directory tools employees can use to locate project sites, colleagues, expertise, and skills.
Origami Connect features robust solution deployment, allowing the intranet to be deployed in your existing, clean Microsoft SharePoint Online or Microsoft SharePoint 2016 environment in just a few days. This approach lets users be in control and releases the intranet significantly quicker than competitors.
Origami Connect includes carefully designed feature favourites, some of which are:
- A search directory allowing employees find forms faster on SharePoint. Unlike SharePoint native search, the directory shows only the latest files and bubbles up the post popular forms to the top. The files can be searched by a keyword or a tag.
- Internal classifieds directory designed with an intuitive infinite scroll capability; employee recognitions and employee spotlight allowing employees to comment and “like” recognitions
- Featured news slider allowing your staff to comment and “like” content directly within the slider; intelligent event roster which groups events on the same day and provides for expanded, detailed articles
- Idea submission and voting site allowing staff to view recommendations and vote for their favourites
- A quick poll will let users easily create opinion polls in a matter of minutes and keep previous results.
How Is Origami Different from Intranet Templates?
To help content authors get started, Microsoft presented a set of site templates called SharePoint look book. Before, the look book companies had to build whole sites from scratch, which was arduous, to put it mildly. With the look book, you can select a template and use it as a starting point in minutes.
Even though having a look book template significantly improved SharePoint’s intranet site, according to our research, over 80% of surveyed companies said they still need more than look book can offer.
