VVO is a listed company specialising in housing rental. VVO commissions, markets and manages its own residences. The company has nearly 39,000 rented dwellings in 50 locations around Finland.
In late 2010, VVO decided to modernise its out-of-date intranet. Using the SharePoint 2010 platform, Digia is building a digital workdesk for people at VVO, in line with the Tablo concept. To make VVO's work more efficient, and improve user experiences of IT systems, the best possible solutions are being chosen. This is based on a digital workdesk, covering areas such as internal communications, group work, document handling and work flows.
The digital workdesk project will be completed in three phases. Beginning in autumn 2010, the first phase will end on May Day 2011. As a result, VVO will have an intranet with a renewed structure. This will provide user-friendly, effective tools for creating and searching for content. In the second and third phases, further intranet tools will be provided, aimed at boosting the ease and efficiency of communication and daily tasks.
The Digital Workdesk is a productivity tool for employees. It offers a user-friendly interface to information, colleagues, tasks, events and other tools. The workdesk and its content are based on employee profiles and their task based information needs. This makes for dynamic, up-to-date content and tools, supporting user needs.
