Belron

Major global corporate Intranet project built on Plone, featuring many custom extensions developed by Netsight to create a completely bespoke information management system. The system gives managers and staff within the business the power to communicate and share information effectively across the globe. By aggregating and organising a large volume of vital business data, the intranet provides a wealth of functionality to assist managers in the day-to-day running of a large multinational company.

Belron® is the world's largest vehicle glass repair and replacement company, owning some of the best known brands in the industry including Carglass®, Autoglass®, O'Brien® and Safelite®. Belron employs more than 19,500 people working in 28 countries worldwide, replacing a piece of glass or repairing a windscreen somewhere in the world every four seconds.

Netsight were commissioned to build a global Intranet system which would allow effective dissemination and sharing of critical business information across the various global units and functions.

This large-scale Intranet project had a main build duration of approximately six months, during which Netsight worked closely with Belron's appointed design and communication agency, Radley Yeldar, on both the interface design and information architecture.

Built on Plone, the Intranet features many custom extensions developed by Netsight to create a completely bespoke information management system. The system gives managers and staff within the business the power to communicate and share information effectively across the globe. By aggregating and organising a large volume of vital business data, the intranet provides a wealth of functionality to assist managers in the day-to-day running of a large multinational company.

 

  • Granular access control and a custom workflow combine to allow complete control over which users can view and contribute content to each section of the site - with different managers and administrators responsible for their own sections.
  • Automatic email alerts notify users of new, relevant content on the intranet. Users can select the areas of the intranet they wish to watch and choose the frequency of the information they receive.
  • Personalised forums allow users to communicate effectively on a wide range of topics. Polls allow users to vote on a particular topic/question and managers can analyse such responses to refine the business processes.
  • Groups and Projects allow sub-sites to be created for particular working teams. Such sub-sites have complete control over access to content and functionality available to their members.
  • The advertising library provides a world overview of advertising activity within the business as well as allowing the Sales and Marketing community to query and listen to a large repository of previous radio advertising data.
  • Numerous custom search "modules" make it easy for users to find the information they are looking for within different sections of the site; whether they want to locate a video, or a spreadsheet, or a colleagues contact details.
  • The integrated calendar provides an easy-to-use visual overview of corporate and team events over the coming months.
  • Bulk email functionality allows managers and administrators to easily search for and contact groups of users via email. The review queue and work lists allow managers and users to easily keep track of their content.


Netsight are currently working on a variety of other projects with Belron, including the rollout of other language versions of the Intranet, and separate sites for specific projects.
