SJA plays a part in one of the best Intranets 2009 by Jakob Nielsen

The 10 best intranets of 2009

SJA is immensily proud to have it’s work recognized by Jakob Nielsen in the 10 best intranets of 2009. It has also proved that even fairly small organizations also stand a chance of implementing global intranets which are used every day by thousands of employees. This is no small feat considering that SJA is a small consultancy. But size does not always matter!! Indeed SJA worked closely with Kaupthing bank in the early phases of the design and implementation of their global intranet. As well as managing the overall project, SJA was involved in testing at every stage within the development. This, SJA believes is the key to success i.e. bringing together talent, vision, planning and testing at all stages. The Kaupthing Bank global intranet was first launched on 17 November 2005. It played a key role in the Bank’s corporate communications bringing all of Kaupthing, across 14 offices around the globe, together into one forum. The intranet therefore also played a very important role in every employee’s day-to-day work routine.

The Project Manager and The importance of testing

Áslaug Fridriksdottir from SJA, was hired as an overall project manager and worked closely with Sigurjón Ólafsson, Webmaster of Kaupthing Bank. In the redesign project 2007-2008 Kaupthing also worked closely with Eskill (formerly INNN) which did all the programming and also acted as a consultant. SJA usability agency was also called in to perform usability tests. Kaupthing did user testing and heuristic evaluation conducted by SJA at several stages from August to November 2005. The local intranet (Icelandic) had been user tested earlier in 2005 which helped in designing the group intranet. A project manager from SJA was hired, from August until the launch in November, who helped with the need analysis, interface, screenflow and navigation. Throughout the process there were several user tests, all major features and applications were tested as the project went on.
