Queenslanders Credit Union

From geek to gorgeous — how a small team transformed a corporate intranet

Presentation from Intranets2014


About my talk

Queenslanders Credit Union has provided banking services to local communities for 50 years, but they are very proud to say they are not a bank. Driven by the mutual philosophy of turning any profits straight into benefits for customers rather than dollars for shareholders meant that spending big on a corporate intranet was not on the cards.  So Queenslanders had to get creative to deliver a modern, low cost, out of the box solution that would benefit both staff and customers.

With SharePoint out of their price range and limited human resourcing capabilities they had to find another solution that would give the Queenslanders team what it wanted: awesome search; empowerment to help customers and a friendly hub of information.

Amanda will share how they delivered on all this by getting everyone involved in the project.  She will discuss how they succeeded by using:

  • Collaboration
  • Communication, and
  • Determination
