Do it better than the rest with your own extranet
If you want to do well in relation to your competitors, you need to organise your work processes in a smart, effective and easy way. An extranet can be a good way of doing this.
If communicating and sharing information with your target groups is an important part of your business, it is time to consider whether you are actually doing this at a professional level.
With the rapid advances in technology in recent years, many companies are realising that with the right software, they can reap the benefits.
An extranet is therefore a hugely effective way for your employees to interact with customers and other external parties.
What is an extranet?
Extranets are basically protected networks where information can be shared digitally. With an extranet, companies can create a secure online environment to share and store information centrally.
By doing so, they not only save time, but also give external users access to the right information, when needed.
Using an extranet that runs in the cloud, and so can simply be accessed via your browser, means there is no need to be in a specific location to use the extranet, making an extranet ideal for companies to share information with external parties, such as customers, external supply chains and business partners.
Why do organisations use extranets?
Organisations from all sectors and industries can use extranets for the simple reason that everyone needs to share information with third parties. This can range from sharing practical data such as price lists or stock information to sharing collaborative communications such as ideas and feedback.
Ultimately, it often pays to work with an extranet if your organisation works with a number of external distributors and suppliers.
Examples of the use of extranets
There are many ways in which organisations use an extranet, and how they use extranets depends on their needs and business structure. For example, companies with a large business network of distributors may use their extranet as a customer portal, connecting their external partners to important documents and also providing the means to communicate with internal teams.
Organisations can also use extranets to build a customer portal, offering their external customers a convenient private network from which they can report issues, contact technical support and view training materials, for example.
