BCD Travel: Managing a world-class SharePoint intranet

Travel firm BCD Travel has successfully evolved its intranet MySource, based on SharePoint Online and other Microsoft 365 tools, through a series of well-executed intranet management practices and approaches. These include the definition, design and deployment of five key intranet templates, an advanced site audit process that involves a quality scorecard, and creating a ‘look book’ asset that provides examples of good practice for site owners. The team has also developed a communications plan template and process to help site owners to provide more effective communications.

Over two years, intranet capabilities have expanded through continuous improvement. Adoption and user satisfaction have also increased, reflected in survey results and a leap in net promoter score (NPS). This has all been achieved by a small intranet team of two.
