Avito: Automating HR processes through the intranet

Russian technology company Avito has replaced an ineffectual intranet with Avito People, a new intranet and HR portal focused on providing information and automating processes. The new intranet contains multiple features targeted at the needs of employees, managers and HR specialists. These include an intranet homepage with targeted news based on location, a personalised HR dashboard, integrated 3D office maps, meeting room booking, a manager dashboard, a complete automation of Avito’s Performance Review process and a recruitment module. This involves multiple integrations with other systems.

Avito People has been custom developed in-house. The improved access to information and HR automation has resulted in huge time savings that Avito estimates to equate to about USD$ 450k per annum. The intranet has strong design and innovative features throughout.
