Connect your intranet to your desktop through immersive experiences
Apps can bridge the gap between your intranet and your staff. With line of business applications you can expose business processes, dashboards and business or internal communications data. They are an ideal choice to consolidate disparate information under a single easy to use interface. Your staff will get notified on the desktop when important content is available, all while maintaining all the benefits of a strict and secure access control policy. Making use of modern html5 and web-hooks you can connect a variety of disparate systems. At ClerksWell we are primarily working on Windows 8.1 apps, all while offering a unified experience with standard browser navigation.
It’s all about data
An efficient search experience is critical to a successful intranet or extranet implementation. ClerksWell can help you to deploy SharePoint Search to bring together content from disparate data sources across your entire organization into a single, compelling search experience, and configure query rules that determine the intent of the user’s query to present the most relevant information, even deep linking to the most relevant section of Microsoft Office documents.
ClerksWell’s expertise in customizing SharePoint search templates can deliver visually engaging search interfaces which are easy to use and adapt to different information types so that your users can get to the information they need with the minimum amount of effort.
Search in SharePoint 2016 is very flexible and extensible, with their extensive knowledge of the platform ClerksWell’s consultants can assist in building search behaviours unique to your intranet while minimizing any custom development.
We also help organisations create a unified experience for their employees across different SharePoint environments, such as if they wish to allow staff to search for content across their Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises environments. We have implemented solutions that give end-users a seamless experience and look-and-feel wherever they look to find what they need.

Make your intranet available on mobile devices.
Today’s intranets and extranets are no longer accessed purely by desk-based users with PCs. Users increasingly expect to be able to connect and collaborate using a range of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, and to be able to access an intranet from anywhere without being tied to the corporate network.
ClerksWell can help you to create an intranet designed from the ground up to work across a whole range of devices and browsers. Our mobile first approach to responsive design ensures that the features that are critical to your business are available and usable on mobile devices while allowing additional enhancements on desktop platforms. Your intranet or extranet will offer an attractive and engaging design that adapts to the user’s device and screen size, allowing them to accomplish their tasks with ease, and dynamically adjusts content to ensure the smallest possible footprint and fast response times.
- Windows Authentication
- Forms Based Authentication
- Single Sign On
- Hybrid Setups
When planning an intranet or extranet, the methods by which users access and authenticate to the site can have a major impact on functionality and ease of use. In many scenarios users will need access to an intranet or extranet site from outside the corporate network or via mobile devices.
ClerksWell have experience in implementing a wide variety of different authentication schemes, ranging from simple Windows authentication for intranets to full identity federation scenarios with Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS).
ClerksWell’s consultants will help you determine the best authentication mechanism, balancing requirements for remote workers and internal and external user access with security, simplicity and cost effectiveness.
