Customer Story Video

In this short video, we interview Aviral Srivasteva, Intranet Project Officer for Imerys. We delve into how LumApps has changed the way Imerys informs and connects employees across locations, with multilingual and targeted content, creating a global culture.

The Challenge

Imerys needed a global digital workplace to better inform their employees in a timely manner, provide collaboration spaces and provide a knowledge database to everyone. Since Imerys is spread across 50 countries, their organization needed to centralize information while communicating with all employees, across locations and languages.

Why LumApps?

After their migration to a Google environment, Imerys needed a central platform that was compatible with G Suite. Recommended by Google, LumApps was the right choice to provide multiple functions in a single solution.
Imerys was also attracted to LumApps’ social features in order to break silos and bring their people together inside a common platform.


Imerys reports positive feedback and a good adoption rate among employees. The new intranet allows the company to develop both top-down and peer-to-peer internal communications. Imerys has set up a host of community managers to drive engagement inside Imerys’ new intranet.
G Suite integration

Tailored Content

Multilingual versions
The Imerys intranet is available in 4 languages: French, English, Portuguese and German.
Easy workflow

Communities are a big success with employees, with over 150 active communities opened to date.

Simple & easy navigation
So that every employee can access their own local news and also other country pages or group news.

We were really attracted to the social aspect of the intranet

We were looking for an intranet solution provider compatible with G Suite. LumApps was the intranet Recommended by Google, so we were inclined towards that.
Also, we were really attracted to the social aspect of the intranet, because we were trying to connect our company, break the silos and bring all the people together.
All of these factors really pushed us in LumApps’ direction.
