Prior intranet offered limited search capability and incomplete analytics


In early 2020, Bay Federal Credit Union’s executive leadership team agreed that the business had outgrown their previous intranet platform. Their previous provider no longer addressed the organization’s ongoing and expanding need for a collaborative, engaging user experience with robust search capability. With executive support, a cross-departmental governance team was assembled from several departments throughout the organization.
