Makes information informative
Intranets are only as successful as their ability to locate the information they contain. Getting users to the right information in a simple way is the crucial challenge for any state of the art intranet. Our response is context. Context shows you who and why someone created a file, if there are any other relevant files you might want to look at, if and why a file was updated and who is responsible for it, etc.
Finding the right information and content will get much harder if information is not presented in context. Because users don't always know how to ask for the information they are really looking for.
Information that is available in context to other information helps employees to find the information they are looking for, and have it in context to increase the relevancy. The user should see his information all in a nice neat contextual view.
IntelliEnterprise lets you add context to everything; customer records, word documents, notes, categories, pages, databases, dashboards, blog posts, ideas – well, just everything. You can create a whole new dimension of meaningful connections within your intranet.
Less shuffling, less searching
Our comprehensive context approach allows users to work faster and smarter across your organization. Routine processes are automated while redundant steps can be removed; in turn processing time will be increased notably. All this while our 100% document security and compliance support remains untouched.
I Want To
'I Want To' uses our task-based navigation
to help users getting tasks done. They simply need to type in what they want to do and all the task-related information opens up, including a description, documents, procedures or policies, people, applications or workflows.
The portlet is designed to allow the user to quickly located the task he was looking for by prodiving instant feedback as he types.

Taxonomy is the ability to organize content effectively. By defining characteristics of your information you can classify your content and link related information together. With IntelliEnterprise makes this easier using metadata and our unique Context Links
which let you create bidirectional, meaningful relationships between different kinds of content. These contextual links are universal metadata, and hence, create multiple structures within your intranet, so you can organize the content as lists, tasks, trees, or in a matrix. However you organize and reorganize your information, context links provide the glue for your taxonomy.
Optional or required metadata (custom document properties) can be used to automatically categorize any document. Metadata can also filter search results. Typical metadata might include information about language, country, color (for images), or tags that abstract a document’s content.
Tagging lets users assign metadata to any kind of information. In IntelliEnterprise there are two types of tags: free tags and semi-controlled tags. Free tags can be entered in whatever way the user wants, while semi-controlled tags are validated before they are officially added to a document. For semi-controlled tags, IntelliEnterprise offers the users suggested terms that have been used before. Tags represent the way users commonly refer to the document, so the document becomes more findable.
Portlet that maintains a list of links to help users quickly discover and navigate to related information. In comparison with a static topic portlet, this portlet dynamically determines the viewer's permissions in order to provide only links the user is allowed to view.
It is possible to assign a user contact to each category. This user is the "content owner" and the primary contact for all inquiries and feedback related to the content. A portlet shows the content owner on each page or selected pages, helping users to quickly identify and contact the right person.
Tags represent topics related to the current content. Tags usually appear as single words listed alphabetically. Tags that are used more frequently appear larger than the less frequently used ones. Websites like Flickr or del.icio.us use tag clouds to help visitors quickly determine what's popular.
In the past only HTML files allowed linking to other information. But most information is published as files or resides in applications and databases. For these information types, linking to related information was not possible dynamically.
Conent in IntelliEnterprise is joined together via new bidirectional links.
Those are called contextual links, which means they are creating meaningful relationships between every kind of information you can think of.

Task-based navigation adds a new navigation option to IntelliEnterprise. The user is guided through performing a specific task, with the navigation completely adapted to the task. This is a user-centric approach that enables users to skip the tedious standard navigation structure and have information arranged as needed for the completion of their task. Since there is no hierarchy with this type of navigation, it can be easily added without affecting your existing category structure, which remains completely untouched.
