Problems like inter department communication, subscription service, knowledge management and the Intranet. Because of this the staff spends several hours a week searching for information. We consider that developing a new Intranet would solve many of the information problems at Axis. By not just looking at the technical aspects of the Intranet but also usability and structure it should be an Intranet that can be used by all employees at Axis Communications AB. (Less)
