Pythagoras provides Industry leading SharePoint Intranet for Gatwick Airport

Pythagoras, one of the UK’s largest and most trusted providers of Microsoft technologies, is delighted to further cement its partnership with Gatwick Airport through the development of a new SharePoint Intranet, with the integration of Yammer, Microsoft’s leading enterprise social network. 

These technologies, together with Pythagoras’ expertise across the software stack, will streamline internal communications throughout the business and provide users with a ‘one stop shop’ for information and interaction.

SharePoint 2013 will replace Gatwick Airport’s existing intranet with a solution that boosts productivity by facilitating more effective communication, collaboration and automation. Crucially, via a responsive design, it will offer mobile and non-PC access for the airport’s 2600-strong workforce, many of whom are not office-based or on-site full time. With a Bring Your Own Device policy in place it is essential that employees should be able to access the Intranet from smart phones and other tablet devices.

Pythagoras’ implementation will also improve internal airport processes, particularly in helping to identify issues and improve passenger safety around the terminals. Regular news, messages and events information can be published online to all employees, negating the use of hard copy hand-outs, while utilising the Yammer social network platform will enhance collaboration across teams and add value to individuals.

Tom Parker, Business Development Manager at Pythagoras said, “I’m delighted to announce our partnership with Gatwick Airport, the world’s busiest single runway airport, a true global leader and recognisable brand. I’m looking forward to continuing our work together and strengthening our partnership for future developments.”

Nikki Griffiths, Airport Communications Manager at Gatwick Airport concurred, “Pythagoras has provided us with a bespoke solution to suit our individual needs. With over half our workforce working remotely, this mobile friendly solution will help us make the same information resource available to everyone working at Gatwick.”

Ends.
