Veolia: Unifying an Ecosystem of Internal Websites
When Veolia started thinking about a new intranet at the end of 2014, IS&T Department, Communications Department and HR department had some key challenges in mind:
– First and foremost they needed to embody the “One Veolia” vision which is to have everyone speaking the same language,
– Provide users easy access to their Google Working environment,
– Users should be able to find biz apps, documents and relevant contents in their own language.
And all this should be made available from a single entry point. This single entry point called the “Homesite” should be capable of aggregating information from the whole Veolia Google working place.
Thus, they were not only trying to build a new intranet, they were trying to build a whole ecosystem of internal websites.
After having considered several options Veolia decided to choose LumApps, mainly for its capacity of supporting multi-language contents, its native integration with G Suite, and its powerful search engine.
From a communications point of view, users from different countries can see top down information published by the Headquarters and bottom-up information sharing is also made possible by the Homesite.
In early 2016, Veolia launched the Top 500 mobile application tailored made for the Top 500 executives of Veolia. This mobile app mirrors contents of a dedicated LumApps in the One to One ecosystem. This way they bring the latest information one step closer to their senior executives.
