It's also a good idea to have technological solutions in place. Video and conferencing apps are an obvious choice. Much of human communication takes place on the non-verbal level, so face-to-face interaction is still an essential aspect of successful collaboration.

The ease of communication made possible by the intranet is one obvious advantage. With an intranet solution there's no need for additional software. And because employees are already using the platform in their day-to-day work an extensive program of staff training won't be required either.
