Summary: In this case study, we discuss healthcare mergers and acquisitions, content management systems, and how Amica Mature Lifestyles Inc. applied their intranet during a nationwide company expansion.
When Sarah Santaluce was referred to Intranet Connections in 2015, she compared our product against a few competitors, but ultimately decided our healthcare intranet was the best option. Not only did Intranet Connection provide a central content management system for their multiple locations to collaborate, it promoted organizational acceptance and internal communication.
6 months later, Sarah’s company acquired Amica Mature Lifestyle Inc. Amica had a much larger group of communities and more staff who were already trained on SharePoint. After completing a comparative analysis of the two software’s, Sarah concluded that Intranet Connection’s easy-to-use for non-technical administrators worked best for the company as a whole. Amica’s SharePoint required expensive maintenance and was often outdated. The Search function would pull outdated manuals, some dating back to 2003! It was obvious that Intranet Connections provided a much more user-friendly software than SharePoint, which was important since it was to be managed by non-technical administrators.
The main deciding factor was the ease-of-use. For someone who wasn’t in IT and lacked a background in tech, Intranet Connections’ out-of-the-box intranet offered a solution as a content management solution, collaborative space for forms and online training, and there was no need for expensive third party consultants or a devoted IT team.
“We could never go back to the old way of processing forms and approvals. Typically, approvals go through 10-12 people and would take 6-8 weeks. When we first launched our Intranet, there was a request submitted in the morning, flowed through all 8 people and was approved that night.” – Sarah Santuluce, Brand Manager (previously project manager) from Amica Mature Lifestyles Inc.
