Video is one of the most effective ways of communication in today’s world. In the context of Simpplr and intranets, Simpplr Research found leading internal communication programs have something in common: the usage of videos as a part of their communications strategy. With Simpplr’s new native video capability, you can host, upload, manage, and view videos right from your intranet. Simpplr Video makes it easy to turn a stale intranet into an engaging, media-rich intranet that elevates the employee experience.
Why use native video in your intranet communications
If you look around, video is one of the main ways we consume information. From watching the news to binging your favorite series on Netflix, the way we consume information has dramatically shifted to video content. In corporate communications, employees prefer video when it comes to delivering information-dense content. (Kaltura’s 2019 State of Video Report)
Why Simpplr Video
While Simpplr already supports video and integrates with popular video platforms like YouTube and Wistia, Simpplr is excited to offer native video capabilities. Simpplr Video centralizes video content management for viewing, managing, publishing, distributing, and even analyzing media content to empower creators and engage the rest of the organization.
Because video is natively built, Simpplr Video helps reduce friction for creators that generally comes with using third-party platforms. If you’re using YouTube, you understand the many steps it takes to first login and upload the video, then embed it into your intranet. With Simpplr Video, you save time by hosting and managing video content right within the intranet.
Upload and manage videos directly within your intranet
Simpplr’s native video takes the pain out of managing videos on third-party platforms by allowing you to record, upload, store, and manage corporate videos all within Simpplr. Uploaded videos are automatically stored and organized appropriately into video folders that are easily accessible.
Internal communicators can share important company announcements and information with video to boost employee engagement. HR can onboard new hires more quickly with training videos and quick start video guides. Marketing can share and extend promotion and campaign videos through departmental pages. Business leaders can communicate and lead employees through authentic video communications.
Limit corporate videos secure within your intranet firewall
Private company videos should be exactly that: private. With third-party platforms, there’s always a risk of strangers finding company videos intended to be private. This can happen even with certain video restrictions. Simpplr Video keeps private videos within your company’s firewall, only allowing access to employees, no one else.
Make video content discovery easy with AI-backed search
Simpplr Video makes video transcripts searchable so users can recall information from presentations, company meetings, and other video content. Save employees time while establishing the intranet as the reliable source of truth. No more sifting through hours of raw video footage to find what you need.
Create mobile videos on the go
Employees and leaders now can shoot and post their experiences with the rest of the organization. There’s no learning curve or training required. Using Simpplr’s mobile intranet app, you can directly record, upload, and share video content instantly right from your intranet app. No additional steps required!
Embed video content in every facet of your intranet
Media-rich intranets have higher engagement and puts a face on company culture. Video capabilities are woven across all aspects of the user experience, including social feeds, pages, albums, employee profiles, events, blogs, and the carousel.
Know which videos are a hit with native analytics
