A Successful New Intranet Design for Bath and North East Somerset Council

In 2015, WebCurl worked collaboratively with Bath and North East Somerset Council to create a new Intranet. Our original design, which is demonstrated in the video above, replaced a dated, hierarchical site build with a flat structure, which allowed for the fuller use of Drupal’s search capabilities and the ability to categorise content into facets.

Some prominent features and benefits of our Intranet design include: One-platform – A Pinterest styled picture board where employees can share various information. Through a central email address, information is aggregated through staff emails with pictures and text. Dashboard with Pinning functionality .

Each user has a customisable dashboard paired with a pinning feature, which allows users to pin relevant content to an individual dashboard for quick and easy access.

Using live data from both the local bus and train companies, we were able to create a successful, instant platform which allows users to track buses and trains.

A Trading post board allows Council staff to advertise, trade or sell unwanted items between themselves.

Other features and benefits added to the intranet include:

  • Active directory integration Phonebook
  • Updating of certain fields in AD via the intranet, e.g. Telephone number
  • Search with faceted filtering
